Hi Distech Tele!

There is very little information available on the your widescreen high-def plasma TV. This makes a specific solution difficult if impossible, but I'll give you my best impressions and directions, despite the limitations.

I suspect that you have blown the audio amplifier chip, and it is highly unlikely that this blown chip will present itself by any visible evidence(i.e.: There will not be any burnt, smoking, hot or discolored parts - everything will appear normal..

To locate this chip, locate the speaker jack where you plugged in the speakers, and carefully trace the circuit land from the center conductors of these RCA Phono jacks back to the (hopefully) Audio Amplifier chip. You might have to trace through a low resistance current limiting resistor, but you should be able to locate that chip.

Ascertain the manufacturer and part number for that chip (note ALL the numbers printed on the chip), and try to locate a replacement chip online. If need be, I can assist you with that if you like, just post a free question to me (look for the "Ask" link under my avatar).

Sometimes chip failures daisy-chain (like falling dominos) back upstream through the circuits, especially in the event of static discharge, dependent upon how well the designers provided isolation protection in their design. A good way to check for this is via the alternative audio outs (line outs). Line out levels are high enough to power a pair of headphones/earphone, so if you can rig up adapters from the RCA Phono jack line outs to the stereo mini-jack of some headphones, you can verify that the damage did not go further upstream.

This might also provide you with an alternative "fix" by routing these line outs to a stereo or jambox with a line in input, and running your TV sound through that. This was always my preferred audio set-up because of the superior rproduction... and if the line outs are functional, then the introduction of a home theater system is another possible way to go in order to regain TV sound function.

I know you probably have a considerable investment in your plasma HDTV, and I can imagine the stream of expletives that came when the sound blew (I'd be cussin' like a sailor!!!), but if the set is stil warrantied, it still might be possible to have it repaied or replaced under warranty if you minimize your culpability. Were there any clearly posted warnings not to plug in speakers with power on? If not, you still have a warranty claim --- it is quite easy to design in isolation protection in these circuits to prevent this type of failure, but it would entail the added components and added expense, and these considerations lead manufacturers away from the more reliable design in their quest for better profit margins and price competitiveness.

Distek, I hope this is illuminating AND helpful, I wish you well in this endeavor - good luck! - and do not hesitate to contact us if you have further questions or comments!

Thanks-
-WildBill

    Give your repairman the contact info we provided. It's his job to provide the parts, not yours. He's not much of a repairman if he can't provide parts for the repair.

Sounds like you shorted something out with you went to plug in speakers. Is this a CRT or a flat panel TV? Couldn't get much information on it from the web.

If it's a CRT I would have it serviced professionaly, there are high voltages at play.

If it's an LCD it is safer to open up the TV and examine the boards for burnt components. If you find the culprit you could attempt to replace the component in question or try to find a whole board for replacement.

It would be much easier to replace the TV depending on your budget.

It looks like the audio amplifier integrated circuit might have become defective. Those parts could be very sensitive to sudden current spikes if you did not turn the TV OFF ro connect the speakers.

What kind of speakers were you attempting to connect to this tv? What kind of connection were you using? From the looks of it you will definetly want to have this TV serviced. There are no user serviceable parts.
Thanks and if you need any further assistance please ask,

    With a company like this alot of times it is unlikely to find replacement parts. Thats why with companies like these they are known as throw away TV's. Unfortunately the hundreds you may save off the bat will catch up with you later.

    Unfortunately like i previously mentioned because of the lack of support and service by companies like this, this product is known as a throw away. It would be much more beneficial to buy a new tv that does not have old components. So that when you do fix this 2 weeks later something else doesn't break. I would recommend something Japanese. Hitachi, Sony, and Panasonic are some of my favorites. Even if they make a bad product at least you will have some support and replacement parts readily available.
    Even though this is not a happy ending I will hope you will still accept my solution and find it helpful in the least.
    If you need any further assistance please don't hesitate.
    Thanks,
    Lee

My 2006 manufactured Viore flat screen plasma tv suddenly went blank. Still have sound. Please help!


Read the following:
http://blog.coppelltvrepair.com/2011/02/hp-pl4260n-suddenly-lost-picture-how-to.html

Different TV, but most likely same problem and, in fact, quite possibly literally the same boards, so maybe practically the same TV.
Can't be sure since you haven't posted the model of your Viore.

If you have specific questions, please always include the model number in the question...the model is on a sticker at the back of the TV, right after or below the words "MODEL:" :-)

Hi, you failed to mmention what make and model the tv is. But it sounds to me like a Samsung from experience. If it is then you need someone to check the power supply capacitors. The ones with bulging tops are faulty and need replacing. If it isnt a samsung, still look on the power supply pcb for signs of this and you will be on the right track.

We just purcased Toshiba 26AV502U, now the screen is blank


Heard back from Toshiba. They said to unplug the TV, wait at least 3 minutes, and then plug it back in. This should allow it to reset itself. Sounded too simple, but after doing just that the tv has worked fine for the last three days! Toshiba noted that if this didn't resolve the problem we should contact them to have a Toshiba Authorized service person come check out the tv. It worked for us, hopefully it'll work for you too. Good Luck
