Repetative clicking sound when tv is plugged in with no picture or sound like its unable 2 switch on


TV is very common for having a power failure issue. The problem resides in the Y-Sustain board in most cases. The HDTV Television also have the same issue as they all use the same PDP Panel (plasma panel).

Loud popping and loss of power is common on plasma TVs and is usually either the Y sustain or Z sustain boards or buffers; in these instances the damaged part will be quite evident.

If this is an LCD you might have degraded insulation on one of the pink/blue back light power leads causing high voltage to 'arc' to the chassis.

The loud bang and smell is actually to your advantage as in these circumstances the damaged part is usually evident. It'll just be a matter of popping the back off and sleuthing around

That's the sound of your power supply going bad. You will have to have it repaired by a professional television technician.


Before making any purchases, please check the part and make sure it is what your TV needs. I am simply making recommendations and trying to point you to the right direction.

Good luck.

Soniq 42'' QSP424T keeps freezing


I have been repairing Plasma Tvs for some 3 years now and have found most of the problems caused are by Capacitors.Once again Soniq are no different to the others.The fault is on the main Video Control Pcb.Replace Capacitor C529 which is a 470mfd25v.This cap is mounted next to an inductor coil at the top middle of the pcb.This Pcb is the one which has the tuner and all inputs on it.
Good Luck AND PASS THE WORD AROUND. LET US KEEP THE SERVICE INDUSTRY GOING.
