Question about Panasonic TC-P54S1 54 in. Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

I have had my 54inch Plasma for just over a year now and on Sunday there was a loud pop and then it cut off. Afterwards when my husband tried to see if it would come back on and the power light was blinking not sure how many times because we decided to just unplug it then. However I am getting no help what so ever from Panasonic about what might be wrong and how much it would cost to fix it. I just hope we dont have to buy a new tv.

If you have a soldering iron and supplies its very simple
You can buy a cheap iron from maplin or from ebay for £10
You will need to read up some basic skills on soldering

Most likely a Capacitor has blown or the internal fuse has gone

Internal Fuse cost about 30 pence (make sure its an exact match)

Capacitors cost about 50 pence (you can tell if its blown because they look buldged on top, not flat)

So simple just de solder the old components, and re solder new ones

I repaired my TV like this last week total cost about £2

The Tv shop wanted £80 LOL

However
if you still have warranty left, Panasonic or the retailer have to replace it free of charge!!!
or if you are out of warranty and dont want to repair yourselves, GOOGLE the sales of goods act (which says expensive electronics should last 6 years)
to get a refund / partial refund based on depreciation

Goodluck

Our HP5060N/ HP PL4260N Plasma HDTV made a loud pop sound and then we lost the picture - still have sound. My son was playing Playstation at the time. Any idea what the cause is? Is it worth the cost of...


Hi, I have just experienced the exact same loud pop sound. Then no picture or sound. Just died. Spoke with a rep at HP and was told that this (having owned for 4 years) is out of warranty and the "main board" has died. It will cost $629.00 plus tax to repair. This would provide a 90 day warranty on those parts replaced. It's about the same to buy a new tv! So I am throwing this JUNK away and will never buy HP again. Best of luck to you all!

My zenith plasma tv popped real loudlike a car backfiring and then the tv picture went black. power on green light wil turn on but it automatically cuts itself back off to the red light


There's an over current fault in the power supply or the Y-sustain convergence board. The loud pop was either a capacitor or pico-fuse breaking from excessive current overload. Sounds like 2 or 3 mosfets have shorted at the gate ends. Plasma TV's always have this problem because they generate too much heat and the components cant take the load conditions. Make your next TV an LCD...

To fix this problem have your local repair shop do it for you.....

any questions please ask.....
