Plasma tv repair question

I have a 50 in. plasma tv (zenith). It is 3 years old. The other day while watching it we heard a loud pop. Then the screen went black. Now, you can see the picture, but the color is very dark and does not match the true colors of the images (ex. a person has a gray complexion and a pink shirt, when it is a white complextion and a burgandy shirt).

Is this something that is fixable at a reasonable cost. I do not want to spend more money fixing it than a new tv would cost. Also, is this a fluke thing or could there be a cause for this tv to go up so soon. my 42" plasma tv made pop noise and now has no pic but does have sound.

    I started out with just one vertical line after only 1 year. Then I got a new line per week and now it's rediculous. What's the solution??? I didn't see one; just a description of the problem.

Don't know much about the newer tv's but in the old days when they did that the guns at the back of the tube where on the way out.. my guess is the modern equivalent is happening..you need to check the vision card.

I had the same problem. We replaced the Y Sustain board. It was under $200 and not at all hard to do yourself. Remove the back of the tv. Make sure you watch what screw goes where. You will see the board on the left side. The number should be on the bottom right corner of the board. Just watch how you removed the board making small notes as to what goes where. Its really not that hard and you can save 600$ or more

Loud pop - no picture


Your X and Y circuit boards are bad. It might require the replacement of the power supply as well. This is not uncommon for LG/Zenith plasmas to have this issue. Not a do it yourself repair.

Green light blinking- no picture


This just happened to my Z50 yesterday...10 days after it came back from the repair shop! The first repair was for the "popping" problem where the tv makes a loud pop and the screen goes black. This took 6 weeks to get fixed. For this new problem the repair center is getting hold of LG to find out what to do. I am also calling them because I see this is a major problem that people have been experiencing out of warranty. The first customer service rep told me I was out of luck but I am not accepting that answer. Good luck, we'll both need it.
