Question about Planar PDP-42BK 42 in. Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

My Planar PDP42B 42" plasma developed diagonal distorted lines after years of extended use. Gets better after warming up for a few mins

When I turn on my TV after not viewing for a while there are darkened diagonal lines from top right to bottom left. After warming up they get better in 3 mins and almost disappear in 30. The picture is not as clear as it used to be being 8 yrs old. It seems like its "wearing out". I don't want to throw it in the land fill if it can be fixed with a few capacitors or even a few hundred $ new board. I need a better one anyway with HDMI and current features but will keep this if it can be repaired. Happened to anyone else? Solutions?

PLANAR 42BK PDP TURNS ON THEN OFF


I have the same problem, with the cover off I used a hair dryer to warm the C18 capacitor then switch the tv on and it works. C18 is located at the top of the power board, thats the second board on the left, it's value is 450wv 330uf. Until I can get the capacitor I leave the back open. Let me know this works for you.
