Question about Zenith Z50PX2D 50 in. Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

Would like a guru's assistance

Hey everyone - It was mentioned in a previous post that there might be an LG / Zenith tech bulletin stating the neccessity of replacing of multiple boards instead of only 2 components.

The story in a nut shell is this is my 2nd Zenith failure in almost 2 years. The 1st. was the "pop" & black screen. The service co. said they replaced the Y&Z sustain boards only. 2 weeks ago the tv failed again & one of the guru's here mentioned by not replacing the related boards as well, it would result in a potential defect, hence - I am the potential defect's owner. can anyone provide any type of documentation so I can tell the new service company that LG / Zenith states this IS WHAT NEEDS to be done? I've got a bad feeling that they are going to charge Zenith the most $$$ & not replace what really needs to be replaced.
Thanks in advance!

They need to replace both sustain boards along with the power supply and the logic board. These are the common 4 for a LG/Zenith dead plasma that popped! Good luck.

I have a z50p3 I tried to hook a samsung 1600

Sorry, man I have the same problem, with the same tv and player. Did you ever get a solution? LG Service Tech came out and his LG bluray player worked, whereas my Samsung didn't hooked to the TV. (It would spordically work going thru my HK254 AVR.)

He said either 1) the Samsung player was defaulting to a format that the Zenith being 3 years old could not decode (eg. 1080P) or that I might need to change inputs several times to get it to sync up or 3) by an LG Bluray player.

He said the Zenith was old and that newer sets are built with circuitry to help navigate the handshake easier. He couldn't find any service bulletins on it, and the one I got from LG he said didn't exist.

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.

Black lines across the top third of screen for 30 minutes till the TV warms up

Bad or leaking caps per an LG bulletin was issued for this model and all three series units of tis model. You'll need some test equipment, mainly a cap analyser 88, solder station and some expereince in SMD components to fix this unit. But it can be fixed, not an expensive fix, and if you're not too sure how to do it take it to a qualified tech... Let em know there is a bulletin on this unit...
Good Luck!

TV's on. No Picture...No Sound

Have a problem with Zenith 37 HDTV. Medel number: Z37LZ5D As wathcing TV, along with 'pop' sound, TV went dead. LG service center gave an advice to unplug the power cord and press ON/OFF power switch about 1 min. Then plug power back and turn on the TV. Well, the green light blink for a while and solid green, but still no screen, no audio. Search the Web and someone suggested to replace Power Supply Board which will fix the problem. Again, search the Web and came out with Power Supply Board. LG Electronics/Zenith 'Power Supply Assembl' with $124.95 from Is it the right solution? Do I have to replace entire Assembly Board? not just replacing some fuse? Any cheaper way to do? If I have to replce PSA board, any suggestion to how? Comment posted on Apr 22, 2009 I have a basic knowledge of electric and electronics, such as rewiring entire house for renovation and assemble entire computer from scratch.
Actually, the TV belongs to my father and the problem that I stated was based on what he told me.
So the question is based on the symptom that I posted, how sure are you that the problem is the Power Supply Board?
Is it good to order PSB? Comment posted on Apr 23, 2009 Purchased 2 and half years ago. Expired one year warranty. Comment posted on Apr 23, 2009 Zohail,
This is LCD TV.
There is no problem with the wall socket nor current.
I put other appliances on same wall socket and worked.
It has to be internal problem.
As I mentioned on the main post, there was a 'pop' sound while watching and TV went dead.
Turn on remote control, there is blink green light and then green stays on, but no sound, no screen.
Turn off remote control, light turns red. Comment posted on May 14, 2009 I fixed the TV.
Orderd power supply board which cost me $136.51 total.
Replacing was simple.
Just removed the rear panel cover then electronic board housing cover.
Took power supply board with all the connector cables and replaced with new one.
Problem was a transformer connector which got burned and blow up the plastic cover.
But no problem with fuse and capacitors.

Thanks all for advises.

Plasma 52inc zenith loud pop. have sound but no picture

Hey - when my screen did that I was told that my Y & Z sustain boards blew out. I now have another issue w/ my set & I was told by a tech guru on this site that there are additional boards that should have been replaced as well.

I too fee like I want to take a crack at fixing it myself, but I don't know specifically which parts to address.

I complained to Zenith (in a nice way) & they've extended my warranty to fix my new problem free of charge, which they should do anyway

Z50PX2D 50" - I heard a loud pop and now only a washed out black and white picture

it is wonderful that lg is replacing the boards, but unfortunately, I don't think that they will provide this service forever. So if anyone reads this after being denied by LG, visit and you will be able to purchase any of the circuits in the set for cheaper than you will be able to from LG. I work for Tri State Module as a technician specializing in plasmas. All circuits come with a one year warranty, and I will personally repair all boards

Picture black- sound ok

If you have audio but no on screen display, then the problem is likely in the Video Drive Board.
