Problem with Planar PD42ED Plasma TV - Picture is messed up

It's a 42" plasma unit that's a bit more than 2 years old. It's no longer under warranty.The colors are off. The picture almost looks like a somewhat fuzzy Andy Warhol painting. I tried adjusting it and doing a reset from the menu but nothing changes. I brought it to a shop authorized to repair all major brands. The technician did some diagnostic tests and told me the problem is with the X-Main Circuit board. He says that it controls the X vertex and that it needs to be changed. Planar no longer sells parts for this unit. The part number is 50503911006. I want to know how I can get this TV set working properly either by fixing the existing board, finding a place that can provide me with a Planar replacement board, getting a compatible part from another manufacturer, or any other reasonable solution. If you go Online and search for PD42ED, it seems to be available from HP Small Business but I never seem to be able to get anywhere when I try to call them. Suggestions?

    As suggested to me by Lwin62, I sent an e-mail message to exoticimports360@yahoo.com to inquire if he/she had parts for my Planar PD42ED plasma TV. As soon as I receive any feedback, I'll post the results

    exoticimports360@yahoo did not have the part I needed for my Planar PD42ED Plasma TV. When I checked e-Bay, I found that it was available from shopjimmy.com. I ordered the part from them, received it and had it installed. My TV is working now.

    The original suggestion to try shopjimmy came from Benimur.

Planar PDP42BK no picture


Check the 15v line that runs through all the boards, left, right and top.. If that has no power, then look on the ysus board (left one) there is a flyback reg (5pin) standard to-220 case surrouded by caps, it does dc to ac conversion, if you dont have the 15v output then the chip is bad. I just did 2 of these that had the same problem.
