SRPD442 TV WILL NOT DISPLAY PICTURE AND WILL NOT SHUT OFF
I have a Sylvania SRPD442 Plasma that is giving me trouble. I purchased it from my brother so I have no warranty.
The first problem I have is I only have one of two possible working bank of component inputs. I have been using the working one to hook it up to my cable box.
The next problem I have is intermittent, perhaps once a week. I'll turn the tv on and I'll get a picture and then it will flicker and go out. When I go to turn it off, I push the power button and it will not shut off. I'll unplug it and wait a couple of minutes and then replug the power in and click the power on and no I get no picture and once again it will not shut off. I tried using the remote control and it will not shut it off either. However, when I try it the next day it will work.
A week ago I opened it up and pushed on all ribbons and blew it out with a can of compressed air. I put the back on and replugged it in and it worked. Now....same deal.
Also do you know what a fair price is for service of this tv/problem?
Hope you can help,

Re: SRPD442 TV WILL NOT DISPLAY PICTURE AND WILL NOT SHUT...
This can be many types of faults. The set will need shop service. There may be cold solder connections on one or some of the boards, or there may be come components that are intermittant. In anycase most of the time, there will be the need for board replacments.
The cost for this type of repair can be fairly expensive. I would consider investing in to a new set because after having this serviced, there will still be many older components in the set that can potentialy fail.

Before taking this to a local repair person, I suggest you check with your cable provider. See if they are having trouble with their HD transmission and then have them test your lines. Out here in Arizona with have constant problems with HD due to heat, rodents and poor installations. Your DVR only recorded the problems that were on your set. If these prove fruitless then take the TV to a reputable repair person.
Your TV monitor cannot support the format (scan rate) that your computer's display card is putting out. Go in to the computer's set-up for the resolution under the display properties and adjust the settings to support the TV monitor. Refer to the TV's instruction manual to see the supported formats.
When going back to the computer's display, the display format will have to be changed back to have the proper resolution.
TV sets are generaly not as good as dedicated computer monitors for use on computers.
tot2523, your on off switch needs to be replaced. We have one, and we are now on our 2nd repair of the switch. First one blew and now the power switch won't go on. It seems it is a flaw with this t.v. Our t.v. is only 2 years old.....
Your problem is probably in the power supply as theres a voltage called the sustain voltage that is always keeping the screen charged so the address lines will activate the screen and make it light up Via the Microprocessor and the video processor. This is not a repair for a handy person as this set, you can cause more problems Please seek out a trained tech for this set. Good luck
This could be anything but is more than likely a problem in the power supply or control board. There really are not any user serviceable parts in these units and they have dangerous voltages. Repair is best left to a professional.
