Question about Televison & Video
We have a Hitachi 50HDT50 Plasma, i just turned it on and heard a loud POP. there is no picture but there is sound. i see from another post that it may be a fuse or something on a board. does anyone know if this is an expensive repair? my husband has been out of work for 15 months and is away at the moment and returning next week. i don't have the heart to tell him his favorite sports companion has died. i was hoping to get it fixed quickly but if it is too expensive i may look for a used one or ?????
Nothing you did caused this problem. It's starting to be a common occurrence on many flat screen TV. Usually, a loud pop has to do with a bad capacitor or a mini transformer. Basically, it's a part on the circuit board that supplies power for the screen. Most TV repair shops will charge about $300 to $400 to replace the bad circuit board.
It's cheaper to find someone that has some electronic experience to repair the board itself with a $10 part. A service manual for the TV can be found at this web site link here. Should cost less that $20.
This manual will have everything the electronic tech needs for repairing the board. Part number lists, schematics, and diagrams for the TV.
