Question about HP PL4260N 42 in. Plasma HDTV
Screen went blank and can only hear voices - Plasma TV only 3 years old.
You need to replace the Y scan board. Sadly, all of the PL4260 models have the same problem... its just a matter of time before it blows. HP has offered a "free fix" but only to those sets that fall with in their so called serial range of those with faulty parts. Like I've said in another post... I called HP yesterday (3 December 08) and they admitted to having used sub standard parts in all of the PL4260 models, not just the serial ranges they (HP) stated.
HP isn't going to fix yours.... and I'm willing to bet your serial falls 1-3 digits outside of the "free fix" serial.
Solution: you will need to purchase TNPA3243AB-PA and TNPA3242-PA to fix your issue. Or you can go ahead and let HP come out and fix your tv for $700+ The difference, you order the parts and fix it yourself...$250-300 plus your time and effort.... you pay HP $700+ for their tech to order the same part from the same distributor, and they put it in for you... either way, you're not getting a warranty or at least thats what they told me....
