Question about Planar PDP-42BK 42 in. Plasma HDTV

Open Question

No picture - green to red indicator ( do have power )

Hi--

I'm having the same issue reported with my planar tv:
Turn the unit on and I can hear the unit click on when it turns on and goes from Stanby (red) to Green and back to red again.

Checked out the solution reported by lwin62 at:
http://www.fixya.com/support/t292774-parts_needed

But i'm confused by this, as the parts he listed to replace don't look at all like the parts on the board:
"Got it from a site called digi-key.com their phone # is 1800-344-4539. The part #s are EF6225-ND you need 1of these and E6105-ND you need 2 of these, the cost is $16 for all. Let me know how it went."

EF6225-ND 2.2UF/630VDC METAL POLY CAP
E6105-ND 1.0UF/630VDC METAL POLY CAP

I tried to ask lwin62 for clarification, but don't think he is checking this site anymore.

any help is appreciated!

thx!

    thx for the prompt responses!



    1. no apparent bulges

    2. have not tested them ( was primarly going with the similar symptoms of the other posters and resolutions )



    I have to admit that i'm not very experienced at doing work at the capacitor level, just minor stuff here and there.



    So what gets me is that the board labels show the caps ( per lwin62's board picture ) as the large blue items next to the yellow coils. But the replacement parts he listed from digi-key look more like the capacitors that i'm used to seeing. There is a huge difference between the sizes of the parts.



    thx again

    Ratings on the parts to be replaced? That's where i'm confused on this entire thing. If i am even looking at the same items that they replaced in the post.



    My board looks exactly like the pic posted by lwin62. I'll post a pic of mine with the caps in question.



    thx again!

Hi.The signal lights red means the primary power of your tv is good and the signal lights green indicate the second power.If the green lights is flashing it means that they have shorted parts in the crt board.Maybe the problem is in the power section of the crt.Need for troubleshoot or repair the crt board.

Tv turns off will turn on then off right away


the internal overload sensor is engaging to protect the system. The parts cost to replace the faulty board is about $70 But you need the skills to open the tv and change it I recommend you get a professional to do it More expensive of course but a lot safer.

Red light flashing, no picture/sound!!!!


HI, this unit has 3 main fuse links on the main board that may be blown. the fuse links should be check before you move further into the diagnosis stage. once you have checked the fuses and they are still in a working state, this will confirm a power supply board failure. this board provides and regulates the current flow and distribution of it throughout the entire unit. If the fuses are fine and the power supply board is damaged, the green light will come on briefly then, the main control will notice that the power supply is not functioning properly. Once the main control board senses an abnormal current, it will shut down the TV rendering the red light warning. The list of fuses to check are below. Remember, if they are fine and working, the issue will be the power supply board itself and, it will need to be replaced.

FUSE CHECK LIST--

3A 12v- fuse----(242208600623)
SM 3A 125v-fuse----(242208600657)
500 MA-fuse-----(242208611092)

PART NUMBER FOR POWER SUPPLY BOARD

Please rate and god bless:)

Sony FWD50PX2/S 50 in. Plasma Television power problem


It does sound like a power supply problem but that can be misleading because a problem somewhere else in the TV can be "holding down" the power supply. This can usually be determined by using some isolation techniques.

It is the power supply. Replace the C97, C19, and C16 Capacitors with 2.2 uF ones.
