Re: Plasma TV

This usually means that the TV was last shutoff by using the sleep timer. When that happens it usually needs to be turned on and off 2 or 3 times, or try using the main power button on the tv or simply unplugging it. A full reset probably wouldn't hurt either.

Plasma screen does not come on and power supply board is bad

When the Plasma TV is plugged in, there're a fewindications of normal operation. Knowing this will help usunderstand what's going on with the unit when anabnormality occurs.1.There is a click from the relaysRL402andRL403when they are activated.2.The LED in the Optical Jack inside the DT board turns on for approx. 4seconds.3.Immediately after that, one of the Tuner LEDs (Right) turns on(Solid Red)for approximately 20 seconds.4.The LED in the Optical Jack inside the DT board turns on again for approx.1 second and both LEDs (tuner and optical jack) turn off.5.Then you will hear another click from the relaysRL402andRL403indicating that they are no-longer engaged. (Note: At this time the Tunerand the Optical Jack LED turn off.)5

The most likely issue is that the Power Supply has burnt out, you were able to let it cool at get it to work for a while, but perhaps part of the board has melted enough to cause a short. Repairs will cost approx. $300-500.

I just solved this kind of problem with my VIZIO VP504FHDTV10A. It was main power supply that went bad. You need to open back panel cover and right in the middle you will see two powersupply boards(subpower board(smaller) and big main powersupply board). Just get board part/model # and search it on eBay(what I did). It was approx. $100. Good luck.

50PFP5332D Plasma tv. My tv sounds like its trying to turn on but the blue light flashes and a clicking noise keeps repeating and no picture.

I have the same problem with my TV. I haven't verified this yet, but someone I know who's a electronics genius told me that its the buttons on the TV (power, channel, volume, etc.) He said at the factory many of the "button boards" were tightened too much and cracked. When you turn the TV on, the clicking noise is a loose connection. He said it's easy to replace yourself, and about 30 bucks on ebay. No promises though.
