    Same thing happened to me just today. All of the sudden, the screen on my Magnavox (42mf231d) plasma went black. I still have sound, but no picture (and no on-screen 'indicators' such as volume, menus, and the like). This TV is just over two years old and I don't want to think about replacing it!! Any help would be appreciated!!

    My Magnavox 42mf231d had the same problem--no picture but plenty of sound. Shop quoted me $834 to repair. Had another set just like mine in the shop with the same problem. Thanks, Magnavox.

If the loss of picture is either on top half or bottom half of screen. there are y buffer boards that go from top to bottom on left side of screen when looking at back that control those sections. when there is loss of half of picture then buffer associated with that area would be at fault and would need to be replaced. when i see a degrading symptom such as loss of picture on top half or bottom half leading to no picture issue normally you would check heat syncs on y sustain board and if not heating up after a few minutes of being turned on would recommend replacing y main and both y upper and lower y buffer boards as they complete a circuit

I HAVE 42 INCH MAGNAVOX PLASMA TV AND THE SOUND WORKS BUT THE TV DOES NOT SHOW A PICTURE AT ALL IT IS JUST ALL BLACK,COULD IT BE THE PICTURE TUBE THAT WENT OUT.


yes...the video card could have gone out but most likely you have a connection that is loose or bad. I would check those first. If you have done so then I would try another video port and verify that it is the screen that is out and not just the port you are in.

You may have a weak power supply. This would indicate one or two capacitors that are weak or bad. This model may be about 4 years now and this is a good indicator as these capacitors need replacing. The other problem may be the infared board in the TV that receives the signal from the remote may be a problem as well. I would certainly investigate my first thought. The latter is kind of rare. Thanks for asking and show a few hands of support.

Replace lower scan converter PCB, which plugged into Y-Sustainer Board, located to the left of the display if you poke back cover open. There are 2 of them, but in some models might be the one, long PCB.don't wait to fix it! otherwise, you will knock out Y-
Sustainer and upper scan converter. That will cause you to spend few hundreds to fix it.
