Hitachi 42" plasma 4 yrs old

Plasma works fine but there is a fluttering noise when you turn it on! Been to repair and first told it was a coil at a cost of £200 but now been told it's a board and will cost £500. Am I being ripped off!!

Re: Hitachi 42" plasma 4 yrs old

I have the 55HDS52 and it flickered like crazy. The firmware was V0101.0001 and I called Circuit City and they sent a tech out with the latest fimware for my TV which is V0102.0001 and now the flicker is gone. I kept my settings all the same and watched the same reference scenes over and over and could not get it to flicker anymore. I'll post if anything changes but it seems that this worked for me. please have a look at THIS very long forum on Hitachi Plasma Noise

I believe that you are experiencing an intermittent problem with what's called your florescent lamp ballast. The best thing is that it can be repaired/fix. There should be a LG repair shop in your area. Cheaper to bring it in than have a service tech come to your residence.
Should be between $200 to $300 for a repair.

Seek professional help...unfortunately it sounds like a couple of capacitors got blown on the circuit board. Generally electronics start to get vocal before they commit suicide. Hopefully its not terminal but expect it.

520.00!? Sounds like he's going to replace the entire plasma module-the buffer chips can't be replaced individually. Tell him to resolder the chip resistors on the COF boards before you fork out that kind of cash. This model's notorious for cold solder...
