Question about Zenith Z50PX2D 50 in. Plasma HDTV

Picture turns pink/red. Power off/on corrects...

I've got a 2 year old Zenith Z50. Three times over the past 2 months, the picture has turned to a pink or red hue so to speak.

No noice is heard when it changes to this color. A simple power off/on will correct. Very random thing and you can not reproduce it. I've left the tv on for days after the 2nd occurance and the problem did not surface. But after being on for just an hour or so a few day later, pink it went!

We've got the 3 year Circuit City ext. warranty, and they dispatched a local shop 2 weeks ago to repair. The repair shop is stating today they have yet to see the problem and can find no problems with thisunit and will be returning it soon.

Any ideas?

I had that problem several times with my Z50, I would cut it off, wait and it would fix itself. Now today, it went POP! Complete loss of video, I have audio. I am off the warranty period. I feel very alone now.

Same problem here with my Zenith Z50. Turns pink and powering off fixes problem. I have had Zenith out to fix it and they said the same thing. "Can't reproduce it, no problem found"

Hi. I have a Zenith 42" plasma TV - Z42PQ20 that's


I had this exact problem on my TV, everything said it was the power board. It wasnt, luckily i was able to return that board. It was the YSUS board.

I should have done this this first but this is how i verified the old power board was good. Unplug TV, take the cover off and disconnect the wire harness going to the YSUS, plug TV in and turn on. If led stay blue its the YSUS.

1. the motherboard might be bad and you will need to replace it. 2. or The power supply is bad
Chances are if its making clicks the power supply is bad and you will need to replace it. Which makes sense because constantly powering the tv on and off will damage the power supply or possibly short out your motherboard. These things usually cost about 200 bucks to fix at a local tv repair store.

Having problems turning on 2 year old Phillips


Philips TVs tend to have issues with bad capacitors in their power supplies. Failing capacitors tend to have slightly different ESR (equivalent series resistance) values when they have been left off, versus after they are warmed up and charged up. Either a new power supply board or replacement of the faulty capacitors will fix the problem.

Self- reboots at start-up, then shows picture but with pink dots.


Howdy,
It sounds like you have a Power Supply Board problem. The PSB is the center Board (towards left) after you remove the back off the TV. Remove Board from TV with the 6-7 screws. Replace capacitors CM811, CM812, CM817 & CS806; 1000ufd 25volts. It is the board to the left and you notice that the four cap tops are swollen.
It is easy to replace get a stanard solder pencil and you are in business.

Thanks for using FIXA, BIG IRISH.

Too much green color


Problem solved. I tried playing DVD and the TV picture was fine. So I double-checked cable wires from cable box - one of the wires was loose (obviously it was the red color input). After tightening, the TV picture is good as new.
