Question about Zenith P60W26 60 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television
This is very common faults in plasma tv. Bad news because this kind of symptoms has a lot of parts that are going to consider which was gone to malfunction. The boards most likely to fail are the control board, sustain boards, and the power supply board. They are chain for processing the image and feed to the plasma panel. First the unit must isolate from loose connections and bad solder joints because it will produce same symptoms. All the cable connectors must be pull-out and then re-insert and ensure the connections. Power supply board is prone from bad solder joints (cracked/dried/cold solder) because this is the warmest/hard working among the boards. This is hard to spot, I would advice you to work in the brightest area or used table/portable lamp and magnifying glass and re-solder it on the board.
If you don't have necessary tools and test instrument and can't troubleshoot the unit yourself, I would advice you to look for a qualified tv technician or send it to reputable repair shop.
Also, check if your unit is still under warranty/extended warranty period, avail it because the manufacturer will fix it for free. Don't attempt to open the back cover(it will void the warranty).
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.
