Question about Televison & Video
I am looking for a manual for a discontinued flat screen tv. Can you help?
SOURCE: sanyo lcd tv flat
I have researched this problem and it is so common we that own this piece of junk ought to form a class action suit and sue. It is caused by a bad part or bad connections to a part called a backlight inverter. It seems the LCD needs a higher voltage than supplied by the 12vdc power pack so this part re-chops the DC voltage to generate the LCD requirement.
The date of manufacture is on the back of these TVs and all the problems seem to be from those made in 2006 to 2008

The manfacturer has information for you about this model when purchased from Circuit City: http://www.elementelectronics.com/support2.html
The distributor Element uses provides parts at http://www.encompassparts.com/
(you may have to have a legitimate repair center login in and get parts from them)

For what it's worth, you can download the official
Sanyo repair manual for this TV (DP42746) at http://www.eserviceinfo.com/downloadsm/43343/sanyo_dp42746.html.
I uploaded it here when I had some issues with this TV last year.
The solution almost always seems to be to replace the Power
Board and the Upper and Lower Y Buffers. The parts and costs (from Sanyo in
July 2009) are listed below (NOTE: Sanyo will not ship these parts to anyone but
a repair shop):
1. V4 Y-Main (Y-Sustain) Circuit Board (Part # LJ92-01200A, Alt Part # LJ41-02759A) - USD $139.00
2. Upper Y-Buffer Circuit Board (Part # LJ92-01202A, Alt Part # LJ41-02760) - USD $64.00
3. Lower Y-Buffer Circuit Board (Part # LJ92-01203A, Alt Part # LJ41-02761A) - USD $64.00
Sanyo charges USD $10.50 for shipping, which brings the total cost for parts to USD $277.50. From my research, a shop would probably charge between USD $500 and $700 to do this repair. FYI - there is a class action lawsuit pending against Sanyo for this issue. The V4 Y-Main (Y-Sustain) Circuit Boards fail VERY frequently in this TV due to overheating. Hope this helps.
