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

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.

Sylvania 6842PF M screen turning dark red

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).
