Soniq QSP422T LGEPDP might be a sustain board problem

Soniq QSP422T LGEPDP problem
am an old CRT electronics tech been out of the TV scene for many many years. dont know bugger all about plasma's. so forgive the newbie questions. the power supply is all good, but the HV (posibly the SUSTAN PCB) LGEPDP board model 42X4 has a blown fuse and and VSS is short to ground. there are 2 long ribbon connectors that connect to the PDP. I guess its like a LOPT HV supply in CRT terms :)

imagine replacing the whole module/PCB labeled 42X4 might go alright but what are the chances the plasma display panel electrode thingys are shorting at HV and destroyed this board. how often do plasma displays go short. both electrodes/connectors are very high resistance to each other and ground,but i have no idea what V they operate at or the risk in trying to replace this board???

do plasma display panels fail often ??

Magnavox 50mf231d I have this plasma tv that does not have a picture. We turned it on one morning and there was a series of popping sounds, almost like firecrackers going off. What should I try first?


Unfortunately there is a high chance that the sustain board/boards in your TV have failed. Plasma TVs typically have two of the boards, a Ysustain and a Zsustain board. They handle high voltage for the screen buffers and are know to burn out in older plasma TVs. The popping sound is the noise made when the large control ICs on the sustain boards short out. They literally burn up from the inside out. Replacing these boards is possible but not always effective. These boards are expensive and when they burn out they can damage other TV components. In my opinion it is not typically cost effective to fix older plasma sustain board problems unless you can get ahold of the boards at a steep discount. If you are tech savvy (ie you own a multimeter and other testing/soldering equipment) you can verify this your self. However, you should be aware of the dangers of high voltage electronics and have an ESD safe work space. Otherwise you should seek at a repair technician.

Tv picture will not come on standby is flashing


If the TV goes in standby, then it is in protection mode.

Ensure also that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending
bad signal, check if you get same problem on DVD with no receiver box
connected.

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible causes.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , starting the flashing light.

If you are in situation one, then the TV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

On LCD Pay particular attention at inverter and power board, power board can be inspected looking for bulged or leaking capacitors, then tested with a multimeter. The inverter is more difficult to test , there is need to read voltages, should be done by a tech. Also the LCD controller board can cause same problem

On Plasma, test Sustain (Ysus/Zsus) / Buffer boards , cables to plasma, digital board and power board.

On Rear Projection : check lamp, lamp ballast, power board, and convergence.

On CRT TVs, check ballast , flyback transformer, CRT, Tuner, Convergence.
