Question about Haier 42EP24S 42 in. EDTV-Ready Plasma Television

1 Answer

Black Screen with Audio

I called Haier today and they told me that the TV-3940-01 would not work in my TV model 42HP25BAT. I saw in a post that you thought it would. Can you confirm if this part will work in that TV.

    We bought our haier flat screen plasma tv from Sears on 2/9/06. We were told by Sears that they wpould deliver and set up. on day of delivery the two latinos who delivered the set, unboxed it, and said they didn't set up tv's that didn't have speakers attached and left. I called Sears and complained and was told that was the thgird complaint they had that day about that same thing. Got my $50 back for setup charge. Set it up myself but then learned I wasn't told about needing a n external tuner, like a vcr or dvd. Had to go out and by one. Finally after getting a vcr/dvd and cables, I could have gotten a good name brand for same cost. Now after about 15 m0nths total usage, we are experiencing a black screen and video situation. Of course the warranty has run out, and Sears will come out on site and diagnose the problem for $106 for service call alone, not ingluding parts and labor. WHAT A JOKE!! We are now trying to decide if it's worth fixing this piece of junk and hoping noyhing else fails, or buying a reputable

    name brand with a decent warranty program. alk about a rock and a hard place!! Anyone else have a suggestion?

Sears knows of this problem - the key is to convince them to come out and replace the three circuit boards for free - argue that they should have recalled or fix the MONITORS proactively and that this isn't the service level that Sears is known for. Mine was out of warranty, but they still came out and ordered the boards. Also, make sure when you buy a new Plasma, that you buy a Television, not a Monitor to avoid the frustations about tuners.

You can order the parts and plug them in yourself. I did this, since it takes weeks to get the Sears guy to come back and do it. It was simple, but isn't recommended unless you can't wait to have your tv back. Sears sends parts by mail directly to your home...

    Today my haier Plasma TV (42HP25BAT) did a terrible click sound and post which the screen of TV went purple with out blue color and less brightness than normal. When there is no signal to TV , it...

    Purple? Would that be magenta? That's what you get when you lose the green color. Lower brightness may be due a shift in one of the power supply voltages. I'm not familiar with the layout of this model, but the first thing I'd do is inspect the power supply to see if something exploded - possibly an electrolytic capacitor.

    Another possibility is a high-voltage component on the plasma driver board. Check anything mounted on a heat sink (metal plate or slab with fins).

    Are the black spots just in one corner of the display? Do they show up the same no matter what the program material is? If so, I'd be concerned that you had an arc inside the display itself and it is damaged. The arc could have taken out the green drive. It is possible that it's a problem in the video circuit, but usually that would show up as a bad row or column. (If it is indeed a fault due to arcing in the display, you may able to see a difference between the bad areas and the rest of the screen with a magnifying glass and bright light when the set is turned off.)

    I have a 42hp25bat haier plasma tv black screen also, I saw someone state they replaced a hybrid on the ysus board what part is this?

    If you have audio, but no video for any inputs it is likely it is the Y SUS board.

    You should still open the unit and verify that its either the YSUS, ZSUS, or control board. Check the fuses to see if any are blown. If so, it is likely that board is bad. I don't know why they built the boards to blow before the fuse does.

    For my issue, I had same problem but wasnt sure what to buy. I did open it and find 1 blown fuse. I replaced it and it still didn't work(hence a blown board).

    While it was open, I noticed its all LG parts inside. So, write down the numbers of the unit and the part numbers off the YSUS, ZSUS, and main logic board.

    Since its possible any of the costly parts could be bad, I ended up calling Haier and getting the local support shop to take a look at it. I paid $75 for them to tell me what I already knew. They wanted another 425 to fix the problem and extra $ if they needed to tune it further. They said the part was about 370.

    Since there was no guarantee that I would be paying only 500, I figured I could check around to see if I could get a cheaper price. Also a new tv runs about 600-800 with a new warranty. In the end, I ordered the part from (one of the leading replacement parts places - they sell new and used parts) for about $175 with shipping. I paid a bit more for a new Y SUS board but it was worth it. It was still cheaper than the factory price of about 275-300. Luckily, I did not have to tune anything.

    I'm not affiliated with shopjimmy, but they seem to be really nice(I called twice to ask for information) and have a good return policy. They are also cheaper than the other online parts places. SHOP JIMMY also lists on ebay, so you can find them there too. If you go to their website, you can find your brand and tv model and see what parts they have. They also give part numbers. They DO NOT have CROSS REFERENCE INFORMATION. However, the same part numbers are listed under other TVs and models. Remember LG is the manufacturer and the other companies buy from them. They only change the skin and the look of the tv for their own needs. I'm not sure what you mean by hybrid, but the parts that are interchangeable from model to model are really the same parts with different part numbers.

    Another way, to search is to use the part numbers you pulled off your tv. This will identify all brands that use that exact part. Again, shopjimmy will not verify the parts will work in your tv. They only tell you to compare your part with the picture they show.

    Once you get the part number off your TV, you can also google the part and see what comes back. I read alot about different issues. This is also how I found out that other parts from other brands will work in my tv....but the postings did not guarantee it. Try googling "Haier 42hp25bat parts" and "(the part number) LG parts".

    The part I got was for a MAXENT. It was LG but for a MAXENT. I verified the part looked exactly like mine. Remember to look at circuits too. I noticed a few of the same boards had slightly different capacitors AND did not know if they would negatively affect my TV.

    My Haier is now working fine. I snoozed on it for 8 months before fixing, but at least its up and running for superbowl weekend!

    Bottomline, if you want to take a chance buy the Y SUS. As costly as the parts are, there is no guarantee that only one part is bad.

    Also, the repair shop said to get warranty cause they see alot of issues with no name brands and the less expensive units. They said the brands they dont see many issues with are the old school brands, like Sony, Toshiba, etc. I have another TV that I just got a warranty for just before it was $300, but at least its covered for another 4 years.

    Haier TV model 42HP25BAT

    Harish.......If you've lost both audio and video you'll probably need the upgrade kit. If it were just video you could get by for sometime with replacing the slow blow fuse on the s-zus board. Check your eprom chip on the digiatal board to see if it appears burnt. If so it may have fried. If you'd like the service manual I'll need your email address

    There is a easy fix - Most of you purchased your television at Sears or BrandsSmart Stores - No picture but you can hear sound - the part you need is the upgrade kit - part: TV-3940-01 - the part is not always available.
