I think you have a fault on the line output stage either dry solder joints or a fault with components on the line output stage or a faulty line output transformer. If you can check this for yourself otherwise find a competant technician. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Panasonic 42" Plasma Television 2008 (4-blinks)

I have seen a fault where the Plasma display was giving sparkling green dots, and then the set would shut down after about 10 minutes. After waiting for about 40 minutes, I would re-start and the process would work the same, and then the set would shut down.

I tried freezing the boards one by one with freeze-spray, and heating with a heat gun to see where the thermo fault could be. I had no success.

Fortunately I had access to a scrapper set of the exact same model. After spending many hours with the process if elimination, I worked the fault down to be the screen itself! Unfortunately, with the scrapper set that I had its screen was very weak. Swapping the screens between the two sets proved that the original screen has failed.

I don't want to discourage you. You may be down to the point of what I reached!

First of all, Plasma sets are not just plug and play. There are necessary voltages to check along with temperature readings of both those modules along with 3 others to determine which one might be defective. Let me what you have checked in order for me to help you!
Law of probability doesn't always come into play with plasma's.

SOURCE: LG plasma ''pop of death''.

Should be direct drop in, and good observation if that heat sink is not getting as warm as the others there is a major problem. Replace the board, if it still does not work (you can always Ebay the board to get your money back) talk to the shop. If the board is made for the TV and is not generic it should be drop it and go! Once you fix it and it gets up and running, i drilled a bunch of small holes like a grill where my heatsinks were and installed a 120V fan behind it. The fan was only 4" or so wide but it really helped out.

Have you tried ordering one from one of the cheaper sources ?
Maybe they have a short lead time.

TV will not stay on, quickly goes into standby and shuts off screen when powered on.

Psu problem probably a faulty capacitor!

If its a plasma you need to check the y-sus board or z-sus - power supply switches off as it detects a fault in one of the boards usually the y-sus but it could also be the psu itself.

LG Plasma 42pc3d turns on, pops, then turns off

The first thing you should look into is the Z-SUS board, the one situated on the right side viewed from the rear. This board develops a high voltage during operation that might be the source of the popping sound. It is also responsible in refreshing the panel for proper picture display. The weird colors on your TV indicates a faulty Z-SUS board.
Note: Unplug the TV and wait for at least five minutes in order to allow the voltages to drain before you disconnect or reconnect any connector.

  • Disconnect the Z-SUS board from the Y-SUS board. The Z-SUS board is situated on the right side viewed from the rear of the TV while the Y-SUS is on the left.
  • Plug the TV back and turn it on.
  • You will still be able to see the weird colors the moment the TV shut off but do not flash. If it does not pop and stays on and there's a sound, you are pretty sure the Z-SUS board is faulty. Replace it.
  • If it still pops and shuts off, disconnect the Y-SUS board from the power supply. The Y-SUS board also develops a high voltage during operation. The power supply is the one right between the Z and Y-SUS boards.
  • Re-apply AC power then turn the TV on.
  • You'll not be able to see any color or video. If it does not pop and stays on with sound, you have a faulty Y-SUS board, replace it.
  • If it still pops and shuts off, please let me know.
Feel free to update me of the result and your own findings.

Picture covered with big block of black - 3/4 of the screen ???

It sounds like your tv may require a plasma panel, but to be sure remove the back of the tv unit and check the y-sus printed circuit board as well as the z-sus printed circuit board, check that they are getting the correct voltage and that there are no blown compoments on the boards themselves. The boards names, z-sus and y-sus are written on the board as well as the voltages are listed down the side of where the plugs at the boards meet. Good Luck. Oh , and also, check with LG that it doesnt require a software upgrade.

I have a Hitachi tv and tonight the screen went blank but the voice remained on. does anyone know how I can fix it????

Usually it is the Y-sus that has the problem. This is one of the boards that sustain the picture on the screen.

For this particular issue, there could also be issues with the y-drives and Z-sus. The way to find out for sure is to take the voltages (Va, Vs, Vcc, etc) on the boards and matching them up with the specified values on the panel.

When the tv goes pop how do you tell which board has failed. i have seen posts about the x sus board the z sus board and the y sus board

The majority of the time it is the Y Sustain module. I, myself being in the service industry, I always replace the Y drive boards also. The Y main is the large board on the left and connected to that is the y drive boards or board, depending on the model. Check for pico fuses open on the Y and that's a give-a-way.

Haier tv video problems


First of all you have to find out whether this unit has been upgraded with a new software or not?
If this unit is upgraded with new software either you have problem in Y-sus board or Z-sus board.

If this unit is having problem for the first time I would recommend to Change the Service Kit
Part number is TV-3940-01.
This kit contains E-prom,Y-sus board, Z-sus board and Control board you have to change these 3 boards together with E-prom IC.

Dont Forget to Rate!

Good Luck

Lg 42px5d

Brought the set to my local TV technician last night, he's going to call me today to inform me what the problem is. He's indicated that it is mor than likely the y-sus board whcih will need replacing, apparently for these HD sets they're not cheap, around $500 - $600.

After having done a bit of research I had looked into sourcing the boards (apprantely some come in a kit form, 3 boards included) direct from the Australian Supplier (Statewide Appliances in Adelaide, SA), however it turns out I was sourcing boards for a different model. Pity as it was only around $100 for the kit.

Will keep you posted!

Sony PMB50HX1 - has sound, no picture

It sounds like either Y-sus or the X-sus pcb. These are usually fixed at board level and can be quite expensive. If your in Australia Speedy Spares in Melbourne should be able to supply these Boards. They are located on the left and right hand side of the panel and will be connected to the panel through smaller sub PCB's. The x and y sus boards are about 30cm x 20cm in size.
