Hello,

It simply means it is not only the fuse that needs replacement.
The capacitor is also faulty and needs replacement. Once lightning hits a device, its quite a number of components that will get burnt so replacing the board will do the work.

Also check the tips of the capacitor on the other side to see if the lead on it has not melted off causing the capacitor to be having a bridge.

Take care and good luck

LG 42PC!R Plasma TV turns on and then green led blinking with no ppicture and sound !


Your problem is most likely a fried circuit board. I always connect my good electronic to a back up battery. but your problem might have been storm or surge related, I would take it to a repair center and get an estimate.

Bad storm, lightening strike outside then TV went off and will not come back on.


I would start with your power supply. If you took a surge it is possible that you only blew a fuse. If it is a blown fuse, make sure you only use the same type fuse.

I have a RCA Plasma TV p42whd33. was watching tv heard a pop and the screen went blank. How do i fix this


This sounds alot like the same issue I had with my HP 42 inch plasma. Many plasmas had an issue with failures on the YSUS and ZSUS printed curcuit boards.

If you are willing and able to do some dissasemply yourself, open the TV and see if it uses these cards...if so then look at the solutions listed for the HP PL4260N TV issue.

I found the fuse blown on my YSUS board, I removed it and had it repaired by coppel TV..if you find a board that is bad, chances are someone on EBAY repairs them or swaps them out...mine cost $75 to repair and I was back in business...TV works fine again now that I had the board repaired.

Screen blank


Sounds like a cap or fuse has blown in the set, you will need to take the back cover of and have a look, check on the power board for any blown caps, you will notice them straight away if one has poped, also check any fuses that may have blown they will also need to be replaced.

Heard a pop then screen went blank. Now TV wont turn on.


Sounds like your fuse.

If not the fuse in your plug, then the internal fuse in the TV. to get too this you need to open the TV by taking off the back plastic panel and look at the fuse.

the fuse is the glass tube on the board, will no doubt be near where the power cord connects to the TV. and are easy to replace with another fuse. you will know soon as you open it if its blown as the little glass tube will be blackened or the little wire inside the tube will be missing or severed.

Fuses in TVs are actually designed to blow over time with ware (usually to last a bit longer then the warranty time frame) so after the cover has ended the TV can go in for repair work at extra cost. Its a little known fact.

Unfortunately, that board is the inverter board. And for this model the inverter board is only supplied with the the PDP panel. The panel is quite expensive, here's a link if needed:

Sanyo HT27547 tv - lightening came in on coax line


Ther is probably a fuse and a diode that got hit by the lighting. If you want to try to fix it yourself unplug it check the fuse and change it if it is bad. Then turn it on again. If it blows that fuse then a diode is also out.

Lg plasma 42PC3D no picture with sound


I know you already replaced the board, this is for future searchers. If you heard a popping sound, then the picture went out, there is a 32 pin Sanyo module that goes bad on the board. That's probably what caused the fuse to blow. Replace the module, then replace the fuse. The module is less than half the cost of a used board. Since this was a popular model TV, there are lots of replacement boards on the used market.

Have you tried checking the fuses this is a solution i posted a little while ago!!! I was watching tv there was a popping noise and screen went blank. My husbands very practical and we took the back off the tv ,we tested the fuses with a fuse tester and one had blown we took the fuse too Maplin our nearest electrical wholesaler who found us new fuses £1.29 for a pack of 10. We replaced the blown fuse now everything works as it should. Hope this helps we saved about £275 by doing it ourselves but do make sure you feel competent enough to have a go its not that hard but do make sure you unplugg the tv from the electric before you attempt taking off the back and checking the fuses and be careful as tvs can store a electric ok
