Question about NEC PXT-50XD1 50 in. Plasma TV
I have 2 of the power boards now i am struggling with, but there's a small capacitor that has gone on both of mine, it's labelled c5017 and is 10pF according to the service manual and i cannot remember the voltage but i'm using 630V ones to be safe but i think the orginal is much lower, so best to test that cap to see if it's causing the problem

I never got to the bottom of the NEC power supply fault. Couldnt be bothered when a new set is arounf $500.
NEC shoyuld hang their heads in shame. This is a design fault that should have been fixed under warrantee regardless of the time it has taken to accur.
I estimate ALL these sets will have failed within 5 years. I have been watching closely for faulty sets springing up on EBAY. ALL have the same fault. $450 for a new power supply is stupid and an insult. I will actively avoid NEC products in the future. due to this issue. $2500 down the drain in 3 years.
