Question about Sony FWD50PX2/S 50 in. Plasma Television

1 Answer

Sony Plasma TV

Hi Craig,

Did you resolve your issue in the end? I just started having this problem with my Sony PFM-42X1N.

Plug it in, green light comes, clicks twice, then red light comes on and stays on.

Thanks,

Andy

I had this same exact issue yesterday. I own the same TV model and here is what SONY had me do to get the picture back. Ultimately the picture comes back, but it will be very dim and needs repair. Most likely a power supply issue. Try these steps:

-Press power off or leave with standby light on for 5 minutes (wait the full 5 minutes)
-Unplug TV / Press top buttons 5 times each to remove static from system boards (yes, each button 5 times each)
-Wait one full minute and plug TV in and press power on

Sony Tv PFM-42 V1 doesn't show any picture or tv menu


This is a common problem with plasma tvs You did not mention whether you could generate any sound like through your dvd player or something like that. Whether you have audio or not makes a difference on which board may be causing you the problem. Just because it does not have a picture for tv viewing does not mean it won't produce some type of sound through your av1 input. Try it and I'll try to be more specific.

I have a sony pfm-42b1 plasma tv with 2 vga inputs an 1svideo input.. i want to connect my ps3 hdmi cable to the vga input. i purchased the cable but nothing shows.. thanks for your help


you should change it from hdmi to cable. You can do it only on a hdmi tv when you do that you can use it for the pfm-42b1e because i had the same problem too. when you plug your ps3 to a hdmi tv you go to settings-display settings- video output settings than you change it to av multi. After you do that you can use it on pfm-42b1e

Broken screen


You can have them repaired using a TV Repair guy but often it costs as much as a brand new tv. My daughter broke my $1,600 LCD. It would have cost $1,200 to fix.. so I just bought a new one. After that I picked up a TV screen protector called TV Armor http://www.tv-armor.com Its designed to protect the TV from damage. Now I dont have to worry anymore when she is playing near it. It works really well.

Sony Flat Panel tv with no Picture


Flat panel TV's typically do not have "bulbs," but rather backlighting.  Plasma displays are especially touchy during movement.  I would suggest checking your warranty status, as it's probably not something you can easily repair.  If you wanted to take on the repair yourself, be careful not to lay down the screen, as it will drastically shorten the life of the Plasma display.  I would start with checking the system boards for possible damage, since you did hear a "click," It was probably a fuse, chip, etc.

Watching Cable TV


this Sony is a MONITOR not a TV. You need a cable box or a satellite tuner/receiver. There is no built in TV Tuner in this model
