You can find a replacement Capacitor at any local Radio Shack. Just ask them for a 50 Watt Capacitor and they will give you a box of 2 for like $1.45

0.047µF 50V Hi-Q Ceramic Disc Capacitor Pk/2

If the above link does not work, add this to your browser:

You will see the blown capacitor once you open up the back of the unit. It is over to the top left side of the unit.

Here is a link for some basic soldering instructions for circut boards.

Need to hook up satellite


The provider should at least give instructions or connect it up for you---lots of ways to do this if using a receiver and a sat box etc.

Start with looking over the owner manuals for what you have. A lot of TV shops will for a fee come out and hook everything up right.

Plasma and LCD TV sets are prone to having capacitors in the power supply section fail. This is the most likely cause for the probem you describe. When capacitors fail your will commonly see one or more of the following symptoms.
  • No video, Power light is on or blinking.
  • TV is making a clicking noise.
  • TV takes a while to come on
  • Screen is very dim or flickers.

I have a Sylvania 42 inch Plasma HD TV. It is 3


Hello

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.

Good Luck

Sylvania 6842pf m after i power on inmedialty power off (stamby)


These sets are manufactured by Funai, in my opinion total junk, yet they command a $1,500 price tag. I cannot find parts available for this hunk of **** anywhere so if this tip helps you fix this set and get it out of your hair, God Bless You! Model number is followed by an M to read: 6842PF M Found no VSUS on connector CN2502 of the SMPS. VSUS was shorted to adjacent GND pin by 120 Ohms. Small high voltage blue capacitor C2250 (Between Two very big electrolytics and right next VSUS diode D2250 (TO-220 package) on aluminum heatsink) shorted, burned. I have two of these sets in the shop at the same time, both of them have the very same problem, appears to be common and parts seem to be NLA for this unit. Replace C2250, 1,500 pF @ 1Kv. Usually marked as 152K on small high voltage capacitors in junk units. This is not a common value part so if you have to, make one by parallelling a .001 uF cap (102) with a 470 pF cap (471) to get a suitable 1,470 pF capacitor at 1 Kv. Adjust VSUS with VR2250 on SMPS board to read 175 VDC to GND and you are done. You're welcome. ~Ohmster

This sounds like the color processor IC is not working properly. If this is the case you will have to have this checked by a qualified technician.

Plasma 6842PF


Guess what you may have hit the nail on the head. Plasma TV used a balast type power system for the backlighting and that is what you are hearing. I would suggest getting this set looked at to see if the plasma excitor needs to be replaced (it may have another name in this brand of set).
