Question about Sanyo PDP-42H2W 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television

1 Answer

While in operation the TV just shut off and can not turn it back on, not even manually. Could it need a bulb replacement? TV is only 3 yrs old. We know that it has nothing to do with the cable. If it is in need of a bulb replacement....can we do it ourselves? And if so....how. Thank you.

There is no bulb in plasma tv's. LCD's have a backlight and projection tv's have bulbs.

Unfortunetly it sounds like your power supply has failed on you. It is repairable. At 3 years old I wouldn;t think you have any warrenty left (perhaps extended store type) so you want to get a repair estimate before spending any money. You may find it cheaper to get a new tv. Or not that much more. You should be able to get a estimate from Sanyo repair depots or tv repair shops or ask the local stores about repairs and they may tell you who to talk to. The repair cost can be reasonable but can get expensive if they find a lot of repairs are needed. The parts are cheap but the labor isn't (and shipping etc) so make sure you weigh out repair verse replacement to avoid a bit of a shock.

Hi replace the fuse in the wire connecting the mains plug. It's generally located within the 3 pin plug.
If you are lucky it maybe just a fuse blown out.

LCD tvs come with a florecent tube that projects light through the LCD screen like a stained glass window. It can be replaced if you take it to a repair shop that can order the parts. Given that it works and then turns off would obviously mean the bulb is working, the power is just getting cut to it at some point. This will complicate the repair considerably. I would just replace it, personally. By the time the diagnostic fee and the parts+ labor is done, you might as well just pay a little bit more for a brand new tv with better features and a new warranty.

If you have never replaced the lamp it is most likely to be the problem.Most lamps last 2-3 years under normal use.

it's about 3000 to 5000 hrs. on the bulb this translates to about 3 to 5 yrs. of normal use. it can, however, be greatly reduced by the number of on/off conditions. lamps need to cool down that is why the fans run longer after shut down.
obviously if the TV doesn't turn on that can be lamp. weak or dim picture is another sign.

Sony KDF-E55A20 Lamp Shut Down with no blinking lights


If you TV is about 2 1/2 yr you probably need a new lamp they only last about 3 yrs. Mine popped one night and now picture comes in for about 1 min and goes out, I ordered a new lamp today they run $199. There is also a know issue with the thermal fuse. The part cost about $3 and if you know a lil about electronic you can replace it yourself
