Question about Fujitsu Plasmavision PDS-4233 42 in. Television

Open Question

Fujitsu 42" Plasma PDS4214W-S

I recently acquired this television from an office building. They could not get the picture to show up so I told them I'd take it.

I got it home and tried several input sources including my computer and my playstation2 (I didn't try the S-Video as I don't have a cable, only coax and there's not coax input).

When I power it up the red light changes to green as usual, and the screen flashes on for one second then goes black. I can get no sound or picture. I cannot see menu options on the plasma when I push the menu button.

not sure your model number is correct please check here is a manual for the 42 CL plasma TV if it is a different set please check the model number, this should have a 42 in it (as it is 42")

how old is your plasma TV? try check the switch / volume of the sound settings.. Sometimes, when you always increase the volume, it will tend to alter the limit of sound and causing the sound to provide sound undesiredness. I suggest to check it with a liscensed technician.

Hi, The problem comes from the power supply board. The power supply board is a three phase unit. One phase on the power supply failed, that would be the reason for the no picture. You can have the power supply board repair or replace. If you are within the manufacturer warranty, they "should" replace the part ( power supply board) at no cost to you. Mike

This is most likely caused by the Main Power pcb.

A competent service technician should be able to implement the service bulletin.
A similar service bulletin is probably available for your model. Request bulletin from Fujitsu ''

I do believe the Panel is bad and needs to be replaced. Check with the manfacture to confirm this.

42" plasma tv problem

Hello, If you are referring to the actual shape of the prongs coming out of the tv plug(refer to figure): prs1-6980390t98.jpgif the prongs look like this, you will have to acquire an ac adaptor for your TV, this adaptor you can locate at any radioshack store, and sometimes it's called foreign ac adapters for US use.
or simply look at the radioshack webpage, it should be listed under ac adapters.

Hi, this is quite a common problem for plasma screens and LCD screens. The fluroscent backlight is more than likely faulty and would need replacing. The best thing to do is to take it to a service centre because there are no user servicable parts inside the plasma.

Samsung Model: HP-R4262 42" Plasma Problem, pink pixelation/ghosting

Onece the plasma heats up it shrinks a little, i think the cause is that you are low on plasma, so when i heats it shrinks and since the plasma cycles, the area low on plasma wil move slowly around the screen, take this to a repairman and more plasma can be added to it.

Chances are the PDS4209 has a broken axis board. I don't think the 4203 has the same board. I don't think the 4203 compnents can run the 4209
