Re: Problem with Pioneer Plasma

Pioneer has a power supply recall on some models. Do a search and you will find a number at Pioneer and they will replace your power supply for free. The loud popping noise and then nothing is a common problem with these. Hope this helps!

I have a samsung plasma hp-r4262 the picture went out, I have sound but no picture! The day it went out it made a pop noise, then no picture! What could it be?

The problem of your plasma tv could be on power supply. The popping sound you heard maybe cause by blown capacitor. Unplug the tv from the main AC outlet then remove the back cover of your unit. Try to observe if there's a bulge up or leaky capacitor. If you see this bulge capacitor replace it. Be sure to observe proper position because it has polarity. To replace this bad capacitor you should be needing following tools: soldering iron, soldering lead and desoldering pump. Be sure not to connect separated pins when soldering. Let me know what you observe upon replacing the bad capacitor. Good day.

LG plasma tv made loud popping noise

The plasma gas tubes may be damaged or the gas couldve leak out. remember plasma have to remain upright at all times even when transporting them, if they are not you should just set it up straight for about 3-4 hours before turning it on.

No picture

you may have missed the "POP". Common problem that makes your wallet lighter. search for "screen went pop" in the forums.

42 inch LG Plasma TV - Lost picture

Our LG 50" plasma tv screen went black after a popping noise but still had sound, after great diliberations decided to take the back off and have a peek!
We unplugged the tv and tested the fuses (there were three we could see) one had blown, the one on the left as you look at the back of the tv it also has one above it. We wrote the code/seriel number down and took the fuse to the electrical wholesalers Maplin and bought a pack of 10 fuses for £1.29 replaced the fuse in the tv and everything now fine!!!!!!
Hope this might be of use to anyone whose lost the picture after a loud popping/snacking noise but still has sound.
