Question about Zenith Z50PX2D 50 in. Plasma HDTV
Posted by Anonymous on
SOURCE: MY Plasma Zenith TV went "POP"?
For those of you suffering with the loud POP and dead syndrome on this model the "guest" comments here are correct. The Y-Sustain, Z-Sustain and both the upper and lower Y-Drive boards are usually replaced at the same time to prevent any damage from taking out the Y-Sus and Z-Sus boards a second time. You might like to know that the original part numbers for both the Sustain boards have been changed since original manufacturing in an attempt to prevent this problem from happening again and these parts are NOT cheap.
Y-Sus - p/n# 6871QyH039B - $337.74
Z-Sus - p/n# 6871QzH044C - $244.68
Lower Y-Drive - p/n# 6871QdH089A - $132.48
Upper Y-Drive - p/n# 6871QdH088A - $132.48
Above prices do not include shipping or sales tax if applicable.
Unfortunately techs have little voice in trying to get the manufacturers to correct these problems before the warranty runs out - knowing that after warranty repairs are going to be met with quite some resistance when it's coming out of the consumer's pocket.
Also, for reference, I've done about half a dozen of these and all have been under some warranty or extended warranty. Labor was approximately 6.5 hours so you can plan to spend roughly $1400 - $1600 for this repair..
Thought maybe if I posted here it would help a few find the answers they were looking for..

SOURCE: Remote not turning the Zenith Plasma Display Panel TV on/off.
the remotes are usually multi function .. that is, they can control more than just the TV .. make sure TV mode is selected ... if its in VCR mode or Cable or whatever then it wont control the TV .. if its a programmable remote then it may have lost its program and would have to be set up again ... if its the original that came with the tv then that shouldnt happen . once in a while but not often i see a bad LED (at the tip of the remote) ... those are infra red so you cant see the light beam but a digital camera can .. point the remote at the digital camera and you should see the LED flashing in the cameras viewer when a button on the remote is pushed ...

Had similar problem; I have determined that it was the capacitors in the powerboard! I replaced the capacitors at a higher voltage, and the tv is working again (for now) :) To anyone else having issues, I highly recommend looking at the powerboard before spending any money either fixing or replacing the tv. Take the back off the TV and look at the powerboard, if any of the capacitors are blown they will be bowed out in the back (should be flat) Mine had 7 blown capacitors, all were 3300uf 10v capacitors. (Funny enough it was every single 3300 10V capacitor on the powerboard that blew out...) The fix cost me a total of $21!! And $15 of that was for both soldering and de-soldering irons. Through e-bay I got the 3300uf 16v capacitors for $6.50 (including shipping) I am hoping that the higher voltage will thwart this issue in the future, however only time will tell. If they blow again, I'm going to try 25v capacitors. wish me luck!
