Question about Sampo PME-42V3 42 in. Plasma Television

1 Answer

Black Screen My screen goes completely black after a few minutes of being on. Here are some specifics: It happens on all the inputs and with a variety of sources. IF allowed to cool down (rest?) the images come back then the problem reoccurs at about the same time. It almost feels like a warmup issue. Here is the real issue. I live about 100 miles from a city. I can do alot with repair of electronics due to that very fact of being so far away, but in this area i do not know where to start. I would probably not mind buying a service manual but if the thing is irrepairable, id rather not and just sell it for parts. Ok thanks and i look forward to hearing from ya'll. Reuben

Reuben. On the Power Supply PCB marked QPWB11326-1B-4 you'll find a Component marked,
TH701 just above the Fuse! Remove this component and bridge it out!
This should solve your problem! Contact me on engineering@elektroniktechnisch.co.za

My 55inch LG 3D smart tv is not working properly. When you turn the tv on the LG home screen comes on for a few seconds, and then the screen goes black. What is causing this


it's set to the wrong input device ? the one you currently have it pointed to has no input

also it's possible that cable plugged into current input channel has gone bad or become disconnected from it's source
Hdmi cables are unfortunately famous for this as they have no Lock device to keep them inserted into ports

most TV's nowdays shut off if not provided an input for a few minutes

Onkyo HDMI + 42 " LG TV = black screen but both work fine with other inputs/ outputs


If using a box disconnect it and the set from power for a few minutes and try again.

Next I would remove connections one at a time with set off and try to see if one is creating this issue. HDMI does not like to be connected when a unit is on or power connected to it.

Westinghouse LCM22W2 shows a display then turns off after half a second


I have the same problem and have traced it down to a potential power supply issue.  I bought mine at Best Buy in '06 and was told today that they will test the power supply for free.  It may range from $50.00 to $100.00 depending on where you can get it.  This does not include labor for those not qualified to work with electronics.  Hope this helps you.

Air 2 is the source it's looking at for a signal - - where is the signal plugged into? and are you able to change the input or source to look at another?
