Question about Samsung PS42P2S 42 in. Plasma Television

1 Answer

Ps-42p2st samsung plasma 42" does not power on!!

We move to a new palce and lost power cord. A friend recomend me to use a standard computer power cable that actual fits in it, I tried but it does nothing at all. I also opened and looked for any loose connectors, I revised them all but still not doing anything. Any suggestions? I am worried that the TV might have been damage during the moving!

Now I am looking into replacing the only fuse I can see (near the Power). It says it is a "T8AH 250A" white one and ceramic. Please help me on finding this fuse or could you suggest to use any others?

I am going mad without TV, and my wife is giving me to much grief with the moving,

Thanks all!

A computer cord is the same as the original. Go to any Radio Shack or TV shop and ask them to check the fuse to see if it is good or bad. If it is good, then suspect moving damage. If the fuse is bad, the person checking the fuse should be able to suggest a proper replacement. After replacing the fuse ( only if it checked bad), re apply power and hope the set comes on. If the fuse blows a second time, you need to call a technician. One other thing, some sets have a vacation switch that can accidentally get pushed during a move. Consult with the owners manual to verify if your set has one.

just to be sure, plug something else into the same wall socket to make sure you have power there. If you have power at the wall and the TV has a detachable power cord, try the TV power cord in your computer to see if it works. Otherwise you probably have a faulty power supply in the TV.

No indication of power what so ever


Yes, a computer power cord is the same.
Without physical sign of damage, it will be hard to induce the movers to cover the problem. You will need to take it into a reputable TV shop and get their evaluation that whatever is wrong is due to the move. Its odd that it failed while off, however of course all these new TVs are not near as reliable as the old ones. Might just be a dislodged connector inside.
Hope Ya Fix It!
