Fujitsu Plasmavision pds-4208 Display randomly

Hey everyone =D any help would be greatly appreciated!

this is my problem...

i have this plasmavision it has been working fine since i got it, now all of a sudden the picture will just disappear, as its only a display unit and I'm running my audio thru my home cinema system.
its an intermittent fault but its been progressively getting worse, sometimes a sudden display change will cause it to stop working, a total display loss with no osd... however green light continues and the psu still carries on operating with fans going... until a couple of minutes when it will shut itself down and display an orange light for no input signal.

Ive had the psu out and tested all the connections as i have the service manual but no schematics. when the unit is fully operational all output voltages are correct but a few which maybe a volt lower or higher than stated.

however when the unit stops displaying a picture, the x and y sustain outputs drops its tension... only one connection does this on the CN49 on the Ve pins for both x and y sustains the tension drops from nominal 16v to 4.2v

i have removed the sustain connectors to power up the psu and funny enough... without the sustain boards connected the pin has only a 0.2v output

this is really confusing me now. Its a bit of a bummer too as i have no schematics to follow *puh*

am i right in thinking this is solely a psu problem?... or maybe a faulty digital board?.. seeing that the display shuts itself off due to no signal? or could it be a faulty sustain board?

does anyone know whats going on or had this problem before? kindest regards to all... Jay

Drivers for Fujitsu Plasmavision 42" Display


At http://www.plasmavision.com/tech_faq.htm the following answer is not exactly true:

Q: I'm running Windows XP on my Plasmavision display. Can you please send
me, or tell me where I can download, the video drivers for this model?

A: Video drivers are part of the video card installed in your computer, rather than the monitor showing the computer's images. Please check with your video card manufacturer. All Fujitsu displays are Plug-N-Play devices, so there are no drivers available.

For the PDS4203-WH circa 1999, there was an optional video card based on an S-3 ViRGE chipset that allowed you to connect your computer to the display and get the best use of the 852 (H) x 480 (V) display. Without this, almost all video cards fail to display fonts so that they are perfectly legible, which can be quite problematic, lol. Hopefully, this problem was resolved in later models, and they truly are Plug n Play.

Back in the day, this was a great monitor for playing video games. Outcast, from Infogrames, was gorgeous.

Error Message: Condition 1


Error condition 1 is a faulty Fan. On these units if one fan is faulty then the sensor will shut the screen down as a protection.

Turns off after awhile


This is most likely caused by the Main Power pcb.

See Fujitsu Service Bulletin on this problem in a similar model from Fujitsu. -see link below
http://tomtom2k5.free.fr/fujitsu/PDP-0035-06.pdf

A competent service technician should be able to implement the service bulletin.
A similar service bulletin is probably available for your model. Request bulletin from Fujitsu 'service@fujitsugeneral.com'
