I diagnosed the same problem on my FWD-42pv1 as a problem on the Y-SUS board. The fuse on that board was blown, and the board itself was bad (replacing the fuse was not enough to fix it). The symptoms were exactly the same - the LED cycling red/green, and then finally stuck at red.

With a new Y-SUS board, the TV has been working fine for a couple months.

Sony FWD-42pv1 wont turn on


You have to check all the output voltages outputs from the main power regulator section. Really, this is a very skilled work, in case of Plasma displays. It is best to contact any service technician. Products powered by electricity should be serviced or repaired only by experienced professional technicians. Any attempt to service or repair the product by anyone else could result in serious injury or death. If you are not familiar with electronics, do not attempt to repair. Whether you suffer fatal electrical shock. Instead, contact the nearest service centre.

Sony pfm 42 v1 plasma. the switch seems to have stope working? Used to have a red light on standby & green when powered on. Now nothing at all


It might be the problem of your receiver (the one which is inside the television). Check whether it is working and if not get it replaced.

I need to know how to hook up a nintendo wii to my sony fwd-42pv1 plasma. I also have a problem with green pixels in dark areas of my picture


This is pretty easy. Just buy the cables that have S-Video connection. Then plug the wii into the S-Video in on the left side of the monitor. Plug the Audio cables to your reciever or speaker in port on your sound system. Or, the other option is to Find or get a BNC to RCA adapter and use the RCA cable that came with the wii. My TV came with the BNC to RCA Adapter. The BNC location is on the left side of the tv, just above the S-Video connection. Then just change the input selector till you get the right input.
