Question about Televison & Video
I have a Samsung S42AX-YB01 PDP model. All of a sudden I have no picture. Can someone reccommend a replacement part or fix?
It unusual to have the screen go faulty itself. With plasma screens what goes is a power transistor, and there are 3 or 4 of these on one of the circuit boards. The likely board is the one with the big heat sinks as the power has to be stepped down to a lower voltage before it can be used properly. It is best if you replace all of the power transistors as one may have affected the other. If you are no good with a soldering iron then either get someone else to do it or replace the whole Circuit Board (PCB). Beware there are plenty of people aching to make a quick buck out of people who have no knowledge on this technology. If you want someone else to do this for you then find someone honest. A telltale sign for the power transistors is that they sound a pop when they go faulty. A symptom is a blank screen sometimes showing on standby mode. I would say your screen itself is ok, so sell it on to someone who needs to replace a physically damaged/smashed one if you no longer need it.
