Haier Plasma 42" Black Screen

I was all set to watch the football playoffs and my monitor clicked and went totally black. I have my plasma for 11 months and am trying desperately to get someone in to fix it thru my warantee program prior to the Super Bowl. Good Luck I was told....10 -15 business days. They have not even confirmed my service call after 48 hours UGGHHH!!!! I will never try and save a buck again!

    The Picture was great and just went black. Took direct tv box to another older tube type tv and hooked it up to the vedio plugs and audio plugs, picture was great played awhile and picture went blank. Had one more small type tv. Hooked dtvcoax cable to it and it plays fine. Found t4 fuse blown in plasma monitor and it kicks of before powering up. 2nd tube type tv also kicks off before powering up. I think dtv box did somthing to both tvs.

While I was installing the upgrade kit, I broke the connector that goes to the main controll board. The thing just fell apart like a old dried up pencil eraser. I suggest that you take a pocket knife and pry off the sides of the connector, the part that is soldered to the board. Then gently pry up on the wire harness plug, with a thin wide bladed screwdriver. That was the only connection that I had a problem with. I ordered a new 12 pin harness from Haier they said it would be here the first week of July, it's still not here. I called October 5th, and they still don't have a delivery date. I sure put alot of time and money into something that's going to the gravel pit to be used for target practice. DON'T BUY A HAIER PRODUCT. While I was working on the tv, my wife came home with a new portable airconditioner, a Haier. I pluged it in and the thing would not work (DOA). NEVER AGAIN!!!!!!!!!!!

Haier Plasma Tv

If this is the 42EP24S TV the repair is quite easy - remove the back cover and replace 3 boards and an EEPROM, replace the cover and then program the set via the remote control.

If you can get the repair kit (TV-3940-01) from SEARS, get it.

You can get a kit (6871VSNB03E) from Rich-Tech for $198 plus shipping. It does not have the EEPROM though.

Haier TV model 42HP25BAT

Harish.......If you've lost both audio and video you'll probably need the upgrade kit. If it were just video you could get by for sometime with replacing the slow blow fuse on the s-zus board. Check your eprom chip on the digiatal board to see if it appears burnt. If so it may have fried. If you'd like the service manual I'll need your email address

You need the upgrade kit - make Sears come out and order it for you - they know all about it, claim that the monitor should have been recalled. Mine was out of warranty, however I convinced them to fix the TV.
