A digitalizing picture is most likly a bad connection on a screen driver cable or the driver itself is intermittant or the power supply has an intermittant filter on the substain B+ line. hope this hellps.

The only source would be Sanyo. They can refer you to their parts sales rep for your area.
Just to make a suggestion, there is not much you can service in these sets. Some of these service manuals can cost upwards of $60 to $150 depending on the manufacture and model.
Servicing at the component level without the training, extensive diagnostics systems, jigs, and tools is mostly impossible unless it is a simple obvious fault. These sets are extremely complex in their assembly and design.
At the service centers they service these sets by board and module swapping. These sets are basically serviced like as if it was a PC computer. They have the basic calibration setups to calibrate replacement boards when necessary. Sometimes the new boards have to be matched.
I also found that if the set is more than about four to five years old it is sometimes impossible to have replacement boards. The technology turn-over is very fast with these flat panel TV sets and monitors.

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.

If you are still looking for a base for you sampo I have one. My old tv died and I bought a new one. The stand was never used because I mounted mine to my wall. The model was the 42"

a few things to look at , verticle lines.. sustain boards or one of the screens film cables became cut or broke an internal connection in the film. resulting in the need of a new pdp modual (screen) i am also aware that this model uses a media box in the back that fits into two 20 pin or so connectors, remove, make sure all pins are straight and clean them with acetone and a brush. re-plug the media box and see if its ok, if not look at the sustain boards y&z respective of what side of the set its on. Keys on the set, ive had the vol keys get stuck , i notice i had to back the screw out that holds the button panel just a bit to free the keys..its in a small spot on the bottom left, looking from the back (open) give it a turn and a half and try it.
