You can find a replacement Capacitor at any local Radio Shack. Just ask them for a 50 Watt Capacitor and they will give you a box of 2 for like $1.45

0.047µF 50V Hi-Q Ceramic Disc Capacitor Pk/2

We replaced the blown capacitor as you have suggested but we still have the same problem, TV goes into standby mode after a few seconds. We have been trying to get a replacement board for a few months now but the everyone is out of stock/backorded with no info as to when it may come in, some believe that its a discontinued part. We may have to resort to repairing the other blown components on the board. Would you happen to have the service manuel for 6842-PEM model? Is there any other component that you think may be the cause of the problem? Any help would be truly appreciated. Please feel free to email me directly. Rick. Riccardo_Cardona@yahoo.com

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

SYLVANIA 42 INCH 6842PEM DOES NOT TURN ON


The most likely the TV has a power supply related problem. The most common thing to go out is the circuit board that supply power to the screen. Commonly called a Backlight Inverter Board.
I can't say it's 100% the problem because I can't actually look at the tv over the internet.
If by chance the TV is still under warranty, go that route.
If not under warranty and If you have some electronic experience, you can purchase a Service Manual over the internet and diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you circuit diagrams, test points, and part# lists. Usually, cost under $20.

I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

Hi I have a sylvania 6842pem 42 inch plasma. when turning the television on it makes a weird screeching noise then goes to stand by. what can the problem be thanks for the help


your transformer on your power supply is bad, i would recomend replacing the power supply, usually when the transformer goes bad , it damages other things on the board, should be around a 200$ part

Need transistor


Finally I have managed to fix my plasma 6842PEM. My problem was the SS (Sustain) Board and not the Power supply. This board is the vertical one to the right connecting to the Screen/Panel. I tested every component on the board and found one of the Transistors on the heat sink was bad, part # 2PG001. This board is made by Panasonic which can be replaced. I got the Transistor which only cost $20.00 including shipping.

To identify wether this is your problem, disconnect the cable comming from the power board and put on the TV, If the green light stays on then this is your problem.

Thanks all for your help.

Sylvania 6842-PEM Flickering Problem


Something is breaking down. Possibly a specific ceramic capacitor on the main power pcb that has been troublesome. Usually there is just a loud pop and the screen goes dead. If the set is less than a year old it is still on parts warranty and the technician could just change circuit boards until the problem is gone.
