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.

The power supply most likely is on the edge of failing. It may or may not work. This is because some components are on the edge of proper specs. The power supply module is serviced by replacement. It is not supported at the component level.

Sometimes other modules in the set could have caused the power supply to have some problems. The other modules should be properly verified. You would not be able to do this yourself unless you had the proper setup, training, and tools for this type of service work.

Suspect the microprocessor in the set took a hit---if a reset exists for this set it may or may not help--also unplug set and or any box used for a while and then plug back---units will try to reboot.

I have a jvc plasma...apparantly it got banged while moving and now when i turn it on it has a place that looks like a crack but isnt and then thses weird "plaid" designs....can this be repaired?


No,the Plasma tv screen is cracks and damage.Take an insurance claim against the moving company.Sorry the plama screen is 90% of the tv,even u can buy the plama screen from the tv company to repair.They will sell the Plasma screen to u the same as a new tv.Even might cost more after the new plasma screen it put in.Now the tv only worth as for salvage electronic boards parts only now,not as a whole tv anymore.

LG plasma tv picture moves frame by frame horizontally


If the TV is still under warranty, I would begin there. The bad thing about a plasma TV is that they cannot be fixed. I would watch it as long as I could stand it. When you buy a new one, be sure that you a LCD HDTV or a projection. Sorry.

Bose lifestyle 25 system and Panasonic Plasma Tv not working together


I posted the message as Tet Tet before. I can now tell you that I have resolved the problem. The issue is with the Panasonic 50Inch TV. Some people reported the same problem but only when the TV was up on the wall. It turns out that the problem lies with the metal discs which screw on at the back of the TV to enable you to hand the TV on the wall bracket. In my case I had excessive interference caused at the back of the TV (could be the fan). When I put the TV on the wall bracket the metal discs would be in contact with the wall bracket which in turn was acting as an antenna causing the iterference to the bose remote which operates at a frequency of 27.45MHz. You can solve the issue by adding some insulating tape around all the metal discs avoiding them to make contact with the wall bracket. If that fails Panasonic will swap your TV for another one like they did with me. I can now enjoy my Bose System with the 50 inch Panasonic TV. It took me three months but managed to get a solution. I hope this helps. For further info you can mail me at rizzocarlo@hotmail.com. These discs should be made of metal because they are perforating the metal screen at the back of the TV. Panasonic please change this design.
