WHAT ARE THE INPUTS FROM A DVD PLAYER TO THE
Your DVD player may have up to 3, sometimes 4 audio OUTPUTS. Labeled as "bitstream" which is a digital coaxial cable, another labeled as "optical" which is a fiber optic cable. Depending on the model there may also be as many as 2 different types of analog outputs, one is a 2 channel composite connection, or otherwise known as RCA and another is labeled as "multichannel out."
Your television will have audio inputs on the same panel your video cable is connected from the player. Connect to those from the player.

My tv does not power on, rechecked the cables,
Try these things.
1) As much as I hate to say it, most of the time devices that aren't turning on are not plugged in. If the device is unplugged, plug it in. (Sorry)
2) Check the outlet. Plug in something that you know works into the same outlet. If it does not power on, check that there are no flipped breakers in your breaker box.
3) Some outlets/breakers have a red Reset Button on them that needs to be pressed to reset the amount of charge in the outlet.
Hope some of those helped.

I have over 10 years experience in electronic tech support. Currently I work for Viore customer service. Our customer service phone number is 216-454-0868.
know this isn't what you want to hear, but the problem you've described
can't be fixed with troubleshooting. Your TV will have to be repaired.
There is a part that has developed a defect and needs to be replaced.
The repair will cost a minimum $250 to $300 with parts and labor. If you're interested in going forward with repair, take the TV to a repair shop in your area to have the problem diagnosed. The tech will give you a copy of the work order showing the part(s) needed to complete the repair. Then you'll call the above number and ask to speak with Raphael at ext. 3115. The work order will be forwarded to the corporate office and they will contact you with the price of the replacement parts. You will be charged for the parts directly to avoid any markup by the repair shop. The part will be shipped directly to whatever repair shop you choose.
I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information
allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here.
I hope I've earned a positive rating from you today.
Please let me know if I can be of further assistance.

PDP42V18HA No picture, but voice
Planars can be difficult televisions to work on. The company is really only a shadow company that doesn't have any parts or service literature.
That being said, you probably have a shorted bridge rectifier on this TV. That was more than likely the pop you heard. If you have electronics experience, check the secondary on the power supply, specifically the feeds for the X and Y SUS. Also, there are always bad capacitors in these sets, so it might have been an electrolytic capacitor exploding.
If you don't have electronics experience, and have a competent repair shop nearby, they may be able to get you back up and running again for under $200.00. But they may not guarantee it to stay working for any length of time.
Hope this helps you...

Were you able to locate c97 for planar tv 42" plasma
On the power board, you will see two large electrolytic capacitors at one corner and a transformer directly next to them on the long side of the board. The big blue (usually blue, anyway) box next to those is C97. On the other side of that are three white power resistors standing in a row. The part number label for the board is usually on the edge of the board right close to C97.

Planar pdp42bk prison bars
Try to reset the TV back to factory state, this may resolve the issue for you, also leave the TV off and disconnected from the mains for 20 mins or so.
If this does not work you may have to have the IC board repaired again
good luck and kind regards

Planar PDP42BK no picture
Check the 15v line that runs through all the boards, left, right and top.. If that has no power, then look on the ysus board (left one) there is a flyback reg (5pin) standard to-220 case surrouded by caps, it does dc to ac conversion, if you dont have the 15v output then the chip is bad. I just did 2 of these that had the same problem.
