Question about Dell W4201C 42 in. Plasma HDTV
Hi last night while watching a movie on my dell w4201c hdtv plasma tv my picture goes black, but sound remains. i turn off the plasma and then on again, the dell logo appears then fades out as if its getting spray painted or computer virus. in the morning i tried again it worked fine for about 5 minutes then same issues. im wondering why it works for a while after a cold start but then goes to black screen after few minutes. can it be brought in for repair to a authorized dell place or regular tv repair place? is there a solution? or did i just lose 3000 dollars? from what i read on forums, the tv is dead. Any help out there?
The problem was the y-sus board, i had a local tv repair shop diagnos that much for me. although, he couldn't fix it i did some research and found a company in california, itritek.com, who could. you send him the y-sus board and the two buffer boards and he not only repairs them but he upgrades them. apparently the y-sus board gets too much heat and eventually goes out, sometimes the buffer boards are affected too. itritek.com replaces the components on the y-sus board with better parts which are more heat resistent. i believe this will help you with your problem. let me know...good luck.
