Question about Televison & Video

2 Answers

Hi, I turned on my 4 year old Sony 42" plasma today and the screen was black with speckles of colour flashing for a few seconds before fading out and the whole screen goes black. The sound was fine and I couldn't get up any menu functions or any sort of image on the display. Any help is greatly appreciated. Cheers, Karl

Try first unplugging power cable for two minutes. Try also banging side of tv gently this is called whack test.

    You have probably blown some component inside the tv. Try unplugging the tv for 20 minutes or so, and then plug it back.
    If this does not fix the problem, then it is probably a faulty IC or a burnt capacitor etc.
    In this case the TV must be taken apart an component on main pcb board tested.
    This
    job should be performed by a technician, the choice is either going to
    a local TV repair, or calling the phone number printed on last pages of
    TV owner manual to get support.
    Check also guaranty terms.

Many have replaced caps on the SMPS board, with success:

2662 is a 1000μF 25v 85°C with 2663 and 2664 both 25v 100μF 25v

Another model: http://www.hotelkaveka.com/9944CU.jpg
Some other pics of different caps: http://i121.photobucket.com/albums/o229/garafrax/TV%20Repair/HPIM1458.jpg

Once you get it on, there are adjustments to the VS voltage to cure the speckle.

Coloured Pixels in or around black areas when watching TV


This is know as a diffusion issue. Most times this can be corrected with some minor alignment on the pots on the YSUS pwb. Sometimes the YSUS pwb has failed and will need to be replaced.

LG PLASMA TV WITH COLOURED LINES OVER SCREEN


If the Video (Picture/Pix) is gone but you can hear the Audio (sound), then it could mean the YSUS PCB Assembly is gone/kaput/finish. Can replace the PCB, not repair the PCB due to timing circuitry involve. Cost maybe roughly $500 depending where you located. The PCB is located on the left hand side of your TV when you are facing the back (Back open). Might find 3-4 brown flex membrane connecting to the plasma panel. The PCB has a silver or black aluminum heatsink (big) on it.
Good Luck.
