Question about ViewSonic VPW425 42 in. Plasma HDTV
I moved and they put the TV in the garage on the floor. We got an enexpected storm and the garage took in water. The Tv got wet and when i tried to turn it on there is no power. Is htere a solution or did i just destroy a 50" plasma that was never uesd?
I am sure that there is damage to any of the boards that got wet, or had residue from being wet. The voltages in these sets are fairly high, and thus there is damage. Sometimes a damaged board can cause damage on other boards that are connected to it.
Before writing off the set, give it to the factory service rep just in case it may only be a failed board that is not terribly expensive.
If you had a flood and you have house insurance, find out if you are covered. In this case, let the insurance company deal with the set.
