Question about Hitachi 42EDT41 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television

1 Answer

POWER UNIT I Took the unit into the shop, and they told me it was a power unit was out. I found a new power unit. ? How hard is it to install? The problem I was having, when I was watching the TV it jus turned off. I went to power it back on. All I got was the green light on that showing power was on. No sound or pitcher. I unplug the tv, thinking it would reset it self. Still the same thing. The repair place wants $580.00 to fix it. I found the part for $210.00

It's not difficult replacing the smps in these units but I would suspect at the $210.00 dollar price that the smps you located is either not built with Sanyo original components or is not a new original smps for that unit, maybe rebuilt.. Both possibilities are not unlikely in our industry.
To answer the second part of your question I would suspect that the smps is the culprit. The most common part in these unit to fail is the smps because they are so tightly packed, not vented well and create a large percentage of the heat.
Hope this helps.

Fix lcd tv

You need to dertermine if the power board failing charred the connectors, or if a differeb=nt component failed which charred the connectors and took out the power board. This will require component level testing. i suggest taking it in to the repair shop.
However, i would price shop a comparable replacement TV before fixing a 4 year old Insignia. it may be more cost effective to just replace it.

We own a Philips 50PFP5332D/37 that will not power up

I have the same tv with the identical issue. I replaced the capacitors that were bad on the power supply board. You have to be comfortable taking the tv backing off and removing the power supply board which is located in the top middle if you take the back metal cover off. Once off, look at the capacitors on the right side of the board, you should see black goo on top of them. Those are the bad ones that need to be replaced. Maybe you have someone you know who can fix that for you or you can simply order a new power supply board online for about $130 and replace the whole thing yourself. either way, it's cheaper than the shop. Some power supply boards are much more expensive than others, so make sure you have the right part number. Best of Luck and be very careful of you try this yourself. There is high voltage on this board so only touch from the outside of the board. Again, have an expert do this if you are not very comfortable doing it.

Looking for SK-26H520S Power Supply Unit

I had a similar problem where the TV would turn on then shutoff when bumped or over time. The clue was a "tick" sound when it shutoff. Unplugging and reconnecting the power cord go it going again for a few minutes anyway.

I took the unit apart and found the solder connection on the power supply unit was cracked where the main transformer attaches. The solder connection joins the PC board. I suspect the weight causes the joint to stress crack. This is easy to fix by removing the power supply and touching up the solder connections around the transformer. I'd check this first as it is very difficult to locate power supplies and other parts.

Dell 4201c power problem

I am an actual Dell repair tech for a non-Dell refurbishing company. I fix this model exact model, as well as all the other plasma TV's that Dell has come out with. If you are looking for a replacement part I suggest starting with either the power supply. But if you are electronicly inclined, I suggest taking voltage measurements across the labeled parts on the power supply that are the following: VS, VSCAN, VSET, VE, and VA. These correct voltage measurements are labled on a sticker in the top right corner of the TV. If they all come out right then your best bet would be the Y-main board with both upper and lower buffers. They are the circuit boards on the left hand side of the TV. As far as getting the parts, thats a whole other story but I hope this helps to narrow down your parts search.
