Zenith PDP50x3000 Found this TV with a missing power supply board. I read this is a troublesome unit. Is it worth risking getting the PS and finding it has other problems?

Trying to repair a samsung led tv. It was struck by lightening. There are 4 boards in the tv. Do you think if I replace all 4 boards it would work? Could the lightening have damaged the led screen?

any answer here will be pure guessing. and the cost versus the risk of not working by replacing all four boards may make it worth buying a new tv instead.

if you were to try and fix it i would not do anything more than trying to fix or replace the power supply board. . if the power surge has gone further in the electronics. its rarely worth trying to fix

Picture focus getting worse & worse; now sound becoming intermittent

You are most likely getting bad capacitors in the main power supply as well as the sweep power supplies. Looking at the age of this unit, the cost to replace the power supply, it will cost you about 350 to 450 to repair this set. You MAY ALSO need to replace the High voltage/ sweep board as well. The best way to properly tell would be to call out a factory authorized Zenith repair center. They should have all the boards available to test the TV with. That would also be a bit more to repair. In my opinion, the cost would not justify the repair. Good Luck with your TV set.

Turn on lg 42''plasma tv.get sound but no picture

Failure in either of the following can cause no video output.
  1. Panel
  2. Y Drive Board
  3. Y SUS Board
  4. X Drive Boards
  5. Tape Carrier Package (TCP)
  6. Main Board
Try these if you have electronics background :
Note: Touch your fingers repeatedly to a ground connection point or unpainted metal in the product before proceeding.
  1. Unplug the unit.
  2. Remove the back cover by removing the screws holding it. No need to remove the stand.
  3. Disconnect the LVDS cable from the power supply or from the main board. LVDS cable runs from the right bottom of the power supply to the upper left of the main board. Power supply is located at the upper center of the unit and the main board is at the right bottom of the unit.
  4. Plug the unit back and turn it on or the unit turns on automatically.
  5. Look for the Control Board. It is located right at the center of the unit below the power supply. It has a LED on it.
  6. On the Control Board at the right bottom of the MCM chip, the big chip right at the center of the board, you can see two test points. Short across the two test points.
  7. If there appears a picture of cycling colors and patterns, the Y-SUS, Y-Drive, Z-SUS, Power Supply, X-Boards, TCPs and Panel are all OK. The Main Board or the LVDS cable is defective.
  8. Check LVDS cable continuity.
  9. Replace Main Board if LVDS cable is good.
  10. If no picture of cycling colors appeared on step 6, some adjustment is off or some portion of the signal is missing.
  11. Check fuses or continuity of voltage supply lines going to the X Board/s, Y SUS and Y drive Boards and Z SUS Board.
  12. Replace blown fuses, connect broken lines, and resolder loose solders.
  13. If no apparent damage is found, ask for a qualified or experienced technician's service. Massive and sophisticated tests and voltage readings are required and proper tools are needed such as oscilloscope to find which signal is missing. The parts to be tested are prone to handling damage and requires proper handling and testing.

Zenith TV B32A24Z

You have a power supply problem. On this set the entire board is available for exchange but it is most likely not going to be worth the repair as these boards run for about 120 to 145 bucks. Good luck
