My vizio p50hdm made a popping sound from the rear. Afterwards, the picture disappeared and tv screen was black (as if the power was off). Then within a minute the picture reappeared but looked real dull...

The z-sustain board is bad. One of the the heat sinks on the board is cool to the touch. These had LG circuit boards and the number on the sticker, on the board, was a good LG part number. The part numbers were 6871QZH044A.

Do a search on the internet with Google, Yahoo, or Ebay with this part number. The board unplugs and the new one plugs back up. Not an advanced technical repair. Unplug the set and take the back off and match the picture on Ebay with the one in your set. And especially match the part numer.

Akai LCT2721AD - Power on - Sound on - Black screen (No Picture)

Ive reviewed and assisted anoter person who had a similar problem that caused the tv to malfunctioin simialr to yours. After doing some short research and the other person who had the problem, came to find out that 4 resistors failed on the main board causing this to happen. It also could be the backlight of your Plasma screen tv, or your Plasma screen itself is shot.

I would recomened that if you have no active warenty to give a visual inspection of the Tv, via removing the rear black plastic pannel to see if any of the corisponding chips have any burn marks or excessive heat stress. these items seem to be failing about the 12 month mark

Good luck

Screen going black

Get a strong flashlight and shine in at at angle toward the screen.
If you can see the image, which you probably can, then your laptop's backlight is malfunctioning.

Since you've only had it for a month, check with the retailer or manufacturer to see if it is still under warranty. Hopefully it is and you can get it replaced.

But before you send it back, if it has a DVI, HDMI or VGA port on it (most likely it does, unless it's an ultra-slim model), connect a PC monitor to it and turn it on. You may have to press a certain key combination like Fn-F4 or Fn-F8 to switch between the laptop display and external display, but hopefully the screen will display on the external display.

From there you can use your laptop as necessary to back up any data that you need before you send it in for service.

Wont power up

Sounds like it is shutting down to 'protect' itself, because the thermal grease has dried out, and can no longer transfer heat correctly.

You will need to take it apart, and separate the heatsink from the cpu.

Clean both contact areas (the heatsink and the cpu) and apply new thermal grease.
