Question about Sony PFM-42B1 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television
I know this query has cropped up before, but I would like a little clarification on the subject if anyone woulkd be kind enough to help :-)
I have a Sony PFM-42B1E and would like some insight into the diagnosis of the fault it is suffering with. This is what happens.....
"Pressing the ON button causes the unit to attempt to start up 4 times ( the fans come on, the screen flickers but nothing happens) and then it stops trying to start and the red standby LED flashes 6 times, after which this 6-flash sequence is repeated. Pressing the ON button turns the unit off and the standby LED stops flashing"
Does this "6 flash" sequence indicate that a particular board has failed ? If so which one would it be? The screen is good, as on the odd occassion it will fire up, but then goes off again.....onto the 6-flash red LED standby light.
Any help on this matter would be highly appreciated as would a source for a copy of the service manual for this model.
Thanking you all in anticipation,
Six flashes from standby light after 3 attempts to start up with a flash from the screen 100% means the PDP panel is duff - I AM A SONY ENGINEER AND THIS IS CORRECT.

I am the guest with the same problem that posted messages above. The TV needs a new Fujitsu plasma panel - see here http://www.eserviceinfo.com/download.php?fileid=33421 for the service manual. Looks like it'll be sold for parts on ebay!

LOPT refers to CRT based TV, not plasma (unless the author is confusing it with the SUS or Drive circuit)
