Question about Zenith P42W24B 42 in. Plasma Television

1 Answer

Zenith Problem I am trying to fix this TV from pure learning and curiosity i own a P42W24Bx Zenith Plasma Tv and maybe two months ago it lost the picture, and the only thing i have on the screen are Strong Red Green and Blue Pixels appearing randomly on the screen, usually grouped together in the middle lower part of the screen. Any one have an idea where should i start. I would really like to try fixing it and spending more money on parts than give it for fixing and not learning anything.

It would help to know what the initial symptoms were. Or did the set just die with the result as you posted? In any case, first go over all of the boards and resolder any connections that appear grainy or have rings. That is the best way to start. Check the set after that to see if there were any changes. That should eliminate any bad connections as a problem. Next look for any burned or charred areas. Those are the areas where components can change values and cause problems.
Let us kow what you find so far.

I had the "pop" happen to me about a month ago. Sounds like the same symptoms as you list. I searched online to find the most common fix to the the Y Sustain board. You can find this part online for about $150. I have used rivervalleyelectronics.net. Ultimately, I chose not to fix my tv and bought a new one. Before trashing the TV I removed all the boards and have them available for sale if you are interested. I will sell all the boards, including speakers and cooling fans for $150 plus shipping. Contact me if interested.

My zenith plasma tv popped real loudlike a car backfiring and then the tv picture went black. power on green light wil turn on but it automatically cuts itself back off to the red light


There's an over current fault in the power supply or the Y-sustain convergence board. The loud pop was either a capacitor or pico-fuse breaking from excessive current overload. Sounds like 2 or 3 mosfets have shorted at the gate ends. Plasma TV's always have this problem because they generate too much heat and the components cant take the load conditions.

To fix this problem have your local repair shop do it for you.....

any questions please ask.....

Zenith Z42P3 "Invalid Format" message from upconverter DVD


Ran into the same problem with this DVD player and my LG tv. Try this:
Open the DVD tray, with the DVD tray open press the HDMI select button until the proper resolution for your tv is illuminated, put the DVD back in, close the tray and try again. Simple fix -- worked beautifully for me.

Good luck

After 20 months old and now dead


I purchased this tv 2/06 and it went POP in 04/07. Less than 60 days after my warranty expired. Went back and forth with Zenith for several months. I refused to take NO for an answer. Customer service stinks and you have to be very persistent. They eventually agreed to fix it. Repairs cost over $2000 and I have my tv back. Next time it breaks just going to throw it out. Zenith sucks.

Screen full of moving colored lines


I would suspect bad solder connections allowing a ground to "float" It is a common problem with the model P42W24BX which I believe uses similar circuitry as your model. An experienced repair shop should be able to get you fixed up.
