Question about Zenith Z50PX2D 50 in. Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

Not quite but similar

Ok, almost a year after buying the tv from circuit city, the screen popped like everyone has mentioned so far & it was toast like everyone else says here. I did buy the extended warranty from circuit city a month before the 1 year expired and I felt like I actually did something right for a change, lol.

fast forward a year - actually 10 minutes ago. The transmission seem to "stutter" & displayed some weird blocks. Anyway, the screen didn't go black, instead the screeen went into a vertical type of way with yellow & pink lines. I am going to upload this onto youtube soon if anyone is interested.

I remember that the first problem was explained to me as the Y & Z sustain boards blew out. I don't know what this is this time, but I am concerned that I am screwed & I'm very very pissed. Like the rest of you, I'm sure you paid alot more than what you can buy this for today Nov 07.

Re: Not quite but similar

First try this!! Its the cheapest route to go first !! replace theYbuffers or drivers ( top and bottom ).When any IC on this driver is bad ,It corrupts the data,addresses going to panel thus giving you these wierd displays.

A little different problem

It's either logic main or digital board and could also be one of those caused by a failing top or bottom Y drive. Hope you still have that warranty. That year ago when they replaced the Zsus p/n# 6871qzh044c and the Ysus p/n# 6871qyh039b did they also replace the Top Y Drive p/n# 6871qdh088a and Bottom Y Drive p/n# 6871qdh089a ?? If not they may have been doing you a dis-service... That is a common problem with Zenith and the tech bulletin clearly states that all parts must be replaced or the module replacements are not reliable and could cause other failures.

Vizio VW32lhdtv10a, starburst screen due to a simple game of hide and seek, (hiding behind the TV) anyway looking for a replacement screen. cant seem to find one good supplier for just the screen, everyone...

Buying just the screen is not a viable option. It is cheaper and easier to just buy another TV. Once the screen is broken they are
toast. Good for parts only.

Polaroid tv 2700 dead

I have to tell you that I'm finding that this is about the life expectancy of the first generation LCD TV's. It could be fixed/repaired for between $100 to $200 at a good TV Service Shop.
You may just want to put that money into another TV!

Frozen screen on plasma TV

If you purchased it with a warranty, you may be able to get Panasonic to repair it. Check your warranty to get the conditions for returning it. The "new" Circuit City is operating. I do not believe they will honor purchases under the "old" Circuit City. However you can ask at

Hitachi won't replace

I had the same problem a red halo that eventually led to complete discoloration. I called Hitachi and they had their local rep come out and look, they said it would cost $400 to install $1500 new light engine. Then a couple of months ago, I read a post on this site (Varian - Feb. 14, 2008 - suggesting Hitachi Customer Relations at 800-654 7013 was providing the light engine without charge).

So, I called them again and was not able to persuade them to cover my Hitachi LCD projection (50V500). It appears Hitachi has a poor record with their Light Engine as well all of their new generation TV. They have since stopped selling the LCD projection, but they are into plasma and LCD TV and likewise do not seem to have a good track record - as I hear from other users.

I did the smart thing and switched over to a Sony XBR4 Bravia 52" LCD TV 1080p HD at a reduced price (Approximately $2800 from!). My Hitachi cost me about $ 3600 at a Circuit City Store. Therefore, no Hitachi products for me and not from Circuit City, since, Circuit City asked for $4000 for the same Sony TV, I bought from Amazon, which included delivery and installation. Circuit City would add another $80 for delivery.

HITACHI really sucks!!! Put these people out of business!

Vertical lines across my entire screen

My 42" Samsung Plasma HDTV HP-R4252 has a 2" vertical strip of green pixels down the right side of the screen.

My 3 year warranty with Circuit City expires in Nov 2008.. so I hope I'm covered.. can't call until the morning.

Samsung said it might be a logic board problem.. but they want almost $2000 to fix. I might as well buy another TV if Circuit City can't fix it.
