Question about Haier 42EP24S 42 in. EDTV-Ready Plasma Television

1 Answer

POS TV? There was a loud pop just days after the Sears 30 day money back guarantee was up. No picture, no sound. I didn't have the repair agreement so I ordered the kit. Two months later the box arrives and there's three boards but no EEprom. Now all I get from the TV is a flashing blue screen. What do I do? Paul in VA.

Too bought a Haier Plasma 42EP24S ,it stopped working after 7 months -I moved and did not touch it for the next five months
while searching for another tv to replace it- I came apon this site .
the tv was out of warrenty by both sears and haeir
well after reading these posts I called haier america and complained they in turn extended my warrenty and a sears rep came on 5 differant times and replaced all the boards inside tv with no luck - so after putting in over $1400.00 in parts an repair into a $1200.00 tv they wanted to start replacing boards again
I refused and kept complaining to several differant reps at sears
[they told me it was haeirs responsabilty not thiers] I don't know haw many times I explained to them that sears sold me the tv not haeir so stand behind what you sell -well after alot of calls and persistance sears replaced my tv free of charge with credt for a new tv for exactly what I paid
be persistant untill its either fixed or replaced

Loud noise then lose picture

The green power LED probably is merely indicating that power is getting to your TV but the internal power supply is failing as evidenced by the loud "pop".

Sears has a 42" zenith plasma for $449. Is this a good buy or does this tv have problem history?

In my Professional opinion of which I repair these all day long, NO Plasma 3-4 years old is worth that amount of money. The first time it goes down you "will" put it to rest....Guaranteed!
Please don't do it!

LG PLASMA TV SUCKS...loud popping sound...and its gone

I agree do not buy LG I have had a horrible time with this bad bad bad company. I have a 90 day old what they call a $3000 60" plasma thant has been broke now a month, with all kinds of idiots who cant seem to fix it. LG wont help keep send more fools out to "FIX IT" which never seems to happen. I mean this was not a walmart special tv it was their top of the line plasma flagship lg60pk950. Customer service is a joke, wait times are on the average of 30-60 minutes when you call and they lie to you. Everytime you call you get a different story. RUN as fast as you can away from any LG product

Loud popping noise

The 23" CRT set may have a high voltage breakdown in the flyback transformer or focus divider. Take the back off and operate the set in a dark room. Look for anything that has a blue glow around it or sparks flying when the pop occurs. I won't guarantee this will find your problem, but it is definitive if you see these!

I once had a set with these symptoms. I stopped the blue glow and arcing by covering the focus divider with epoxy. It worked for a couple of months before the divider literally broke apart.

Akai tv

Hello Will,       The price is indeed $100 + Return Shipping for the repair/reconditioning of the power supply for your TV. I am willing to extend a 30 day warranty on the repair and PayPal is acceptable and I can invoice you after I have made the repairs. I have replied to you via e-mail with shipping instructions.

LG 50px10 loud noise & then color and image quality loss.

call 877-543-8325 this is an LG Executive call center and they will fix this for free. I have a 50" plasma I bought january 2006 which is out of warranty by 5 months. They faxed me and the LG repair shop a 30 day warranty for my tv to cover the repair. Just tell them you heard a pop and in my case the picture is distorted. All they need is the model number and serial number and they should take care of it. No arguing needed.

Vizio 42 Plasma Pop

My 42 Inch Vizio experienced the pop of death out-of warranty. I bought mine at Sears and they sent a technician over within a day or so. It turned out to be in the power supply and they shipped a board right out. Total including parts and labor was $280. Although no expensive TV should die after less than 2-years, Sears seems to be able to deal with repair in the home without drama.
