Bought our set in 1/06 as an open box sale, went pop in 2/07. Had the extended warranty, and Circuit City was very helpful getting it repaired. It took 4 weeks, picked up and delieverd. Fixed once, popped again 2 weeks later. It went back and they replaced all the boards -- two weeks. But it's been working fine since. We were told that a bad batch of capacitors came out of a component plant around the time of manufacture, causing the problem. Plasma/LCD HDTVs are still eveolving technology, and you shouldn't drop a few thousand dollars on a unit without an extended warranty. It was an extra $400 well spent.

Went into the back and found the power supply (on right side in the center). Checked the voltages and they were missing. I disconnected the cables to the other boards that received power from the power supply board and the voltages now were present. By process of elimination, I found the 6871QRH0158 (Rught Top) board was causing the loss of power. Once removed, the other 5 segments on the screen worked. Ordered a replacement board $180 from LG (Zenith) and now all six screen segments work. Ready for Super Bowl!

Apparetnly when the repair guy called Zenith/LG, the guy knew right away what the problem was & they have to replace all of the boards. I don't know how many there are, but I'm thinking it's 4? That's pretty much everything that makes it work! Of course when I called to speak w/that supervisor again he wasn't there. How convenient. We'll see how long it takes to repair it once the parts are in.
Ours is two years old, and it popped - the screen is dim - you can still see picture, but it's very dim.
I guess this seems to be a trend. My Zenith has just done the same thing. "Popped" sound only. My TV is now 24 months old and I did not purchase the warranty. I purchased at Circuit City. Has anyone found the "true" problem that is causing this to happen? Any feedback appreciated.
I am responding to my post of last week, Nov. 08/09, 2007. I had called Circuit City and they agreed to check TV free of charge (normally $99.00). They did their inspection and found that (2) boards had gone out and would be approx. $915.00 to fix. Even though I purchased TV 2 years ago and warranty had expired 1 year ago, I called Zenith and insisted that I speak with a supervisor. I finally did and spoke with the main manager in the office, (877) 543-8325 (bypasses the operators) and they have agreed to extend my warranty to cover the cost of the repairs. I suggest that all of you who are having problems with the retailer and Zenith, be persistant. Hopefully all of you have the same luck I have had (Thank Goodness!) Good Luck.
Mine is a P60W26P and it lasted 3 years 11 months. The screen is now black after it tries to start. It glows for just a second then nothing. Having a tech look at it this morning. Suspect from the previous posts that some boards will need replacing.
I have the same model and have good service for 23 months. Last night it "popped" and the picture went, sound was still good. Had an burnt electrical smell. Called Zenith/LG, Cat talked to the super and offered to extend the warantee for parts only. The TV service guys said that it was likely the "Y" board because that was where the smell was coming from. It will take a week for them to fix it for sure. Standing by.
