Try the zsus,which would be my favourite choice.if the fuse has failed,thats the problem.dont bother with a new fuse,its the ipm thats blown it.(intelligent power module).its the chip under the large aluminium heatsink.its the board to the right,looking from the rear.

Send all 3 boards to coppell tv repair (http://www.coppelltvrepair.com) and pray.

After having invested time and money your real question is "do I continue with this or do I cut my losses and leave".

We can test all the boards and we can usually repair them too.

Knowing the price you'll have an easy choice as to whether you want to go ahead or bust it.

For a TV this old I can't honestly advise against busting.

But I can honestly say that if you're to bust it then at least we can have the bad boards and maybe help someone else in your position who's not going to bust it.

I can't comment much on what you;ve done because without seeing it I'll have to make lots of assumptions.

Dark/choppy screen can be caused by both YSUS and ZSUS by the way. Most often it's by the ZSUS.

There is no picture on my tv the sound is ok and the amblights works how can I see the picture on screen


Hello,

Problem is in either power supply or the Y-Sustain board.

The Y-Sustain is a relatively large board out of which go connections to the side of the display; it's therefore closer to either the left or the right side of the display, has at least one rather large heat sink on it and fat power cables connecting it to the main power supply.

Often there are fuses on that board - one or more. Check those.

if they are blown you can try to replace them, but expect them to blow again - usually the whole board needs to be replaced.

Good in luck and Thanks...

Vizio P42HD, ok for a few minutes then flickers, picture looks "solarized" then goes blank. Flickers on/off at random intervals. May stay good for minutes to hours, may stay bad for minutes to hours, or...


Disconnect the Z sustain board ribbon cables that go to the display and clean them with a small amount of acetone, ( nail polish remover ). ONLY THE COPPER TIPS ON THE RIBBON.....NOT THE RIBBON. Put those back in and do the same with the Y.
Z on the right Y on the left..

Stuck in some type of solarization or posterization


The tv needs ot be readjusted, have you taken it to a service center? Either that or one of the sustain boards has failed, does the screen look sorta washed out and top edges are rough?

Open the back cover and check any fuse blow in Y Sustain board or Z Sustain board. If you do find the fuse gone, replace the board. Good luck!
