Question about Zenith Z50PX2D 50 in. Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

Loud pop - no picture

Purchased TV 11/05 - Heard loud pop 9/07 and TV went black. Am waiting two weeks for an appt., as we do have, thankfully, an extended warranty. However, reading all of these posting on this particular set, I am disgusted. Who knows what went wrong and how long we are to wait for parts after our two week appt. This is so wrong!

    50" Zenith plasma purchased 12/3/05, I was watching it 11/1/07 when it made a loud pop. It sounded like a fire cracker popped. Now there is no picture, just a black screen. It still has sound though. This is discussting after paying $2999.00 for this t.v. and it blows up within 2 yrs.

    I called Sears Home Central to have a repair man to fix it, but he says that he can't fix it. So my wife called Zenith and they said that they would extend the warranty for 1yr. and have it repaired at no cost to me. I guess that i will just have to wait and see how the repair goes.

Your X and Y circuit boards are bad. It might require the replacement of the power supply as well. This is not uncommon for LG/Zenith plasmas to have this issue. Not a do it yourself repair.

Tv went out after loud pop and has clicking noise does not turn on

If you have a Sony DLP, then the loud pop you heard is your lamp.  The lamps last approx. 4K-6K viewing hours.  Read your manual for replacement part number to reorder and very simple to replace yourself.

Tv wont turn on

The loud pop was a capacitor blowing up or the high voltage transformer blew up. Very common problem.. if its the Transformer be expected to pay 250 or more to have repaired.
