Question about Daewoo DP42SM 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television

1 Answer

Picture goes blank

I have an intermittent fault where the picture at times starts to deteriorate & then the screen goes blank. If I power down & back on again the picture comes back again . Yesterday this happened after the screen had been on all day for about 10 hours which makes me suspect it might be an overheating problem . Is this a common problem ? Is it something thats easily rectified? I am worried that being a low end model I wont be able to get it fixed.

if you can see if the screen lights from behind when the picture apears for a second then the problem is probably the invertor or worse the screen

My hannspree tv screen goes black blank

If the picture shows a picture briefly upon power up then goes off after a few seconds, you have a back light fault. It could have a problem in the 24vdc circuit, failing back light inverter board, or a blown CCFL lamp.

Picture goes blank and then comes back, it does it randomly but quite often. Other times it doesn't happen at all. There is no interruption in sound. Any idea what the problem is?

Is the sound affected too? Do you hear a clicking noise when the picture goes off? Is there a dull glow on the screen when the picture goes off? Sounds like a power supply/ inverter related fault but just to be sure.

You need to check the back light is still on when the screen is blank (check through the back).

If the back light is on, need to change the Powwer Board.
no back light, need to change the inverter.

Screen blanks out

A digitalizing picture is most likly a bad connection on a screen driver cable or the driver itself is intermittant or the power supply has an intermittant filter on the substain B+ line. hope this hellps.
