Question about Zenith Z50PX2D 50 in. Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

Not quite but similar

Ok, almost a year after buying the tv from circuit city, the screen popped like everyone has mentioned so far & it was toast like everyone else says here. I did buy the extended warranty from circuit city a month before the 1 year expired and I felt like I actually did something right for a change, lol.

fast forward a year - actually 10 minutes ago. The transmission seem to "stutter" & displayed some weird blocks. Anyway, the screen didn't go black, instead the screeen went into a vertical type of way with yellow & pink lines. I am going to upload this onto youtube soon if anyone is interested.

I remember that the first problem was explained to me as the Y & Z sustain boards blew out. I don't know what this is this time, but I am concerned that I am screwed & I'm very very pissed. Like the rest of you, I'm sure you paid alot more than what you can buy this for today Nov 07.

First try this!! Its the cheapest route to go first !! replace theYbuffers or drivers ( top and bottom ).When any IC on this driver is bad ,It corrupts the data,addresses going to panel thus giving you these wierd displays.

A little different problem

Rob,
It's either logic main or digital board and could also be one of those caused by a failing top or bottom Y drive. Hope you still have that warranty. That year ago when they replaced the Zsus p/n# 6871qzh044c and the Ysus p/n# 6871qyh039b did they also replace the Top Y Drive p/n# 6871qdh088a and Bottom Y Drive p/n# 6871qdh089a ?? If not they may have been doing you a dis-service... That is a common problem with Zenith and the tech bulletin clearly states that all parts must be replaced or the module replacements are not reliable and could cause other failures.

Try a different source on the tv to see if the tv is toast. Ten years is quite old and tvs have come on a long way since this one. Alternatively try a different tv on the cable box.

Buying just the screen is not a viable option. It is cheaper and easier to just buy another TV. Once the screen is broken they are
toast. Good for parts only.

After power outage timer light is flashing and tv wont come on surge protector is ok

We had a similar problem with our Toshiba. It turned out to be that the mercury bulb was toast. Open the owner's manual & look in the Troubleshooting section. The blinking for us was indicitive of a bad bulb. Sure enough, we took it out & it was obviously cooked. Don't buy from a local store, buy it online. You'll save between $30-100 & our "cheaper" bulb has been working for 2 years. Hope this helps!

Polaroid tv 2700 dead

I have to tell you that I'm finding that this is about the life expectancy of the first generation LCD TV's. It could be fixed/repaired for between $100 to $200 at a good TV Service Shop.
You may just want to put that money into another TV!

Frozen screen on plasma TV

If you purchased it with a warranty, you may be able to get Panasonic to repair it. Check your warranty to get the conditions for returning it. The "new" Circuit City is operating. I do not believe they will honor purchases under the "old" Circuit City. However you can ask at www.circuitcity.com

Vertical lines across my entire screen

My 42" Samsung Plasma HDTV HP-R4252 has a 2" vertical strip of green pixels down the right side of the screen.

My 3 year warranty with Circuit City expires in Nov 2008.. so I hope I'm covered.. can't call until the morning.

Samsung said it might be a logic board problem.. but they want almost $2000 to fix. I might as well buy another TV if Circuit City can't fix it.
