I HAVE A SVA PLASMA TV , BUT IT DOES NOT TURN ON . THE TV HAS THIS BUTTON ON THE BOTTOM OF THE TV THAT YOU COULD TURN IT OFF/ON WITH OUT THE REMOTE CONTROL . WELL THEN I TURN IT ON AND THEN I USE THE REMOTE CONTROL TO TURN IT ON BUT IT DOESNT DO IT I COULD TELL , BECAUSE THE RED BUTTON TURNS ON BUT THEN WHEN YOU USE THE REMOTE TO TURN ON THE TV IT TURNS ON BUT BEFORE YOU COULD SEE ANY PICTURE IT TURNS BACK OFF . THE TV ITS A SVA - HD4208T III-PDP . PLEASE HELP I DONT KNOW WHAT TO DO ? IF MY HUSBAND FINDS OUT THAT SOMETHING HAPPEN TO HIS BABY HIS GOING TO GET SO PIST OFF !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I have the exact same problem as Trouble Wife. Did anyone come up with a solution to get it to turn on?
I got this same tv from a guy in my area he would press the poewer botton on the tv and the standby light comes on and then turns off, so he gave me the tv for free i took the back panel off, and everytime i press the power botton the green light came on where the screen board is and went back off after i let the botton go i took the power board out took it to a repair shop to see if there was anything a wrong with it everything was good so i replaced the two fuses on the board and the one on the screen board, i had a feeling about the power switch so i jumped the wires on the switch purple to purple and green to green, I put it back together pluged it in the standby light came and stays on now, so i went out and got a universal remote for the sva at walmart for $15 programed it and pressto the tv works perfect so three fuses $3.60 two small pieces of wire and ele tape $0 my time 35 mins = one working plasma for $3.60 so when you have this problem like everyone else check the power botton switch, there cheap and check the fuses theres only three and if that dont work idk what to tell ya. and you do need a remote or tv wont work.

I fixed Mine ($30 pdp on ebay lol) 4 $8 bucks it turned out to be a bad smd diode(1Amp) and a shorted scr (I replaced with nte5406) by the red error led I'd suggest to look 4 shorted diodes not ones by transformers but the more isolated circuits. also a few bad samwha caps that read high voltage potential (hypot) between gnd and the body of the capacitor (although not uncommon but I replaced them it Just in case) shock hazard. IMO its is a poorly designed power supply that needs some retrace jumpers to correct some of the flaws and even afterwords still some bias noise in picture but its expected in such an old tv.

You Need a new Power Supply, part # LJ44-00025A
buy it here for $139 http://www.adc-ast.com/
I have my tv working like new.
If you want this time the power supply last, do not turn off, just press tv/video button to switch input source, let the tv in sleep mode.
