Sylvania 6842 PE M 42

Hi Zexxal,

I am having the same issue with my tv. Do you have any diagrams/schematics for the tv? I'm not sure where to look for the blown capacitor and/or power supply. Thanks a ton.

    Sorry Morgan, It was very early here when I posted the above solution and did not realize that is was for my other TV. I have both the Zenith and Sylvania TV (Both had issues).



    If I come across the Sylvania manual, I will post it for you here.



    Once again, Sorry everyone. My bad. I wish they had the option to remove or edit posts.

Capacitor for the Sylvania 6842-PEM 42


No, it will not work (I tried it - twice!). Here is a link to the replacement part I used, and this fixed the problem - TV works great now.

If you are certain that the capacitor is OK, there could be a different problem on the main power board or even on the sub-power board. The sub-power board should have output voltages even if the main power board is defective.

Looking for info on Sylvania 6842 PEM


This RadioShack capacitor is no good - too low a voltage rating. Try replacing it with this one, or something with the same values:

This fix worked for me. Best of luck
