Were you able to check the voltages?

    If your caps are blown like mine, it's prbably the VS voltage. I'm sure most the people here with the same black screen is the same caps. All the voltages on my PS were all good except the VS and the screen was black so the VS probably powers the plasma screen.

    Yeah what you need is .22uf 400v. They should know.

  • Ter Xiong May 14, 2008

    Yeah that's a good idea.

My maxent p420142x3 has sound but no picture?

ha ha ha this problem is caused by the Y-SUS or Y sustain board (any name is used for it) if you open your tv you coud see around 4 big boards, the left is the Y-sus, if you test its two fuses you can see one of them are blown that means that your YSUS is blow it, the part is 6871QYH953A. and the price is from 35 (the fix kit) to 280. I'm sorry for my laugh but I had the same problem and found it that this model of board is LG and around 18 brands and diverse model of TVs have inside this piece of **** and all of them have the same problem sound and no image.

You either need to completely replace the PSB-Power supply board or replace the Uf caps on the PSB. Usually they are blown and sometimes the capacitors leak the electrolite onto the board cutting of trace circuitry. Recaping is fairly cheap. You will need a solder iron and some solder and of course new caps.

Not a full screed 1 to 1/12 inch all around screen

bad news! 19" Sharp! Parts might be costly or not avialable at all. Looks like you may say "goodbuy" to the set or sell it for parts to local repair shop. Last chance is: might be some caps in power supply, being bloated, but it looks like your signal board is quitting.

I have a Philips Plasma 50PF9431D/37 shuts off/red light blinking

If the caps you are talking are numbers C8059 & 8060 rated at 3300uF @ 10v then yes that can be the problem. You can use a higher voltage rating( 16v,20v,) but DO NOT change the micro farad (uF) rating. You can do a search for the caps but has alot of parts. Go to service parts and components in thier website and then search under capacitors.

Do you fix Astar POWER SUPPLY UNIT for a ltv-32asb I had 4 caps. replaced and it is still dead?

Sorry, But we don't take boards in to finx them without the sets. Thanks for asking and I am sorry I can't help in this one. A quick suggestion is to chack all the doides on the PS Board. I find that a dead diode is the major cause is a failure.
Good Luck
