Get a power conditioner, not a surge protector. Fujitsu are sensitive to dirty voltage (not stable at 110V)

I have a Fujitsu 42'' PDS4221 - 10 years old - shuts itself off

See Fixya tips and tricks:-
'Fujitsu Plasma 42" random shutdown - continuous flashing red'

While the model of your set is slightly different, the checks described generally still apply, as it is very similar.

Fujitsu Plasma 42" random shutdown - continuous flashing red led

I have recently fixed my P42HHA10AS 42" plasma which had problem of random picture shutdown.
Would run ok for periods, (sometimes 30 mins, sometimes 2+ hours), picture perfect.
Then it would randomly fail - with loss of picture and front panel led indicator goes from green (normal) to flashing red continuous.
After switch off, removal and re-application of power it would often re-start and run normally for a while.
Sometimes it needed to be allowed overnight to cool before it would run again.
I also noticed that the failures generally coincided with any change to the screen display mode or input mode settings, sometimes just the connection of an external cable for DVD player etc would cause a failure.

Fujitsu service supplied service manual and Service Bulletins regarding this problem :-
Service Manual P42HHA10 is available at

Service Bulletin PDP 0040-01 Main Digital pcb see

Service Bulletin PDP 0068-01 Main Digital pcb see
Service Bulletin PDP 0035-06 Main Power pcb see

Worked through the service manual checks (service manual very basic- overview / DC voltages only - assumes availability of replacement modules). The troubleshooting flow charts lead you nowhere helpful.
Could find no fault with the main power board, except that the 6.5V(nominal) was actually 7.4V at CN351 Pin12.
Added 2x Schottky diodes (1Watt) in series with the transformer 6.5V output winding - this lowered the output voltage to 6.6V. - However, this made no difference to the continuing fault condition and is likely not related to the fault condition.

This units problem was fixed on implementation of Service Bulletin PDP 0068-01 Main Digital pcb.
No other faulty components were found.

The mounting solder on the main processor socket was cracked on one corner at the pcb mount point. (See last picture in PDP 0068-01, page 2)
Re-soldered all processor socket mount fillets, and the set has worked faultlessly since.
Extreme care must be taken with this process, as excess solder will melt / distort the socket.
I became convinced over time that the fault was to do with the main processor board, as the failures were so random, and the set would otherwise run perfectly.
This fault is caused by a combination of solder fatigue, vibration and the thermal cycling of the pcb over time.
I expect it is a common cause of many of the reported problems experienced on these Fujitsu panels.
I suggest that the above work should only be attempted by suitably skilled person/s, as very fine soldering and knowledge of electronic pcb repair techniques are required.

42 Fujitsu PDS4221W-H, no power

A user manual is available from this link:-
Check for a hidden power switch under the lower left or right under corner of the screen, ensure it is ON (- not sure if this switch is fitted to your model, but it does exist on other Fujitsu models).
Fujitsu no longer support or manufacture plasma screen TVs - therefore no parts are available from them. [Fujitsu only serviced to board replacement level - very expensive].
The Fujitsu models (generally, after 4 or more years use) suffer from cracked solder joints on circuit boards (due thermal cycling stress).

Fujitsu power supply shutdown goes to standby mode. no picture. If I turn it off for a while I get great picture and after a while it shuts down and goes into standby mode. Is this a power supply that is...

This is most likely caused by the Main Power pcb.

See Fujitsu Service Bulletin on this problem in the P42HHA10 model. -see link below

A similar Service Bulletin is probably available to suit your model. A competent service technician should be able to implement the service bulletin.

Power shuts off and blinks red .

It is something to do with the power pack / transformer which needs replacing.

Random shutdown for no reason

Is the laptop hot?

Would you say the reboots are totally random, or more only when you have several programs (or large memory eating programs open)?

If you disable automatic restarting you will see the BSOD that is causing the problem.

Right Click My Computer
Click Properties
Click Advanced
Click Settings (For startup and recovery)
Uncheck the "Automaticaly restart " box.

Run your game, and report back the 0x000000 mesassage :)
