My zenith plasma z50pj240 cycles on and off (based on indicator light) 2x without sound or picture. I've replaced power board.
I've replaced the power board an the problem seemed to be fixed until I hit the power button and now I have the same problem again
can you use a meter to test with in the tv?
take the back off the tv and take a picture of the tv with the back off. then attach it here
then send me the link to your pictures.
see attached picture the connector marked should be labeled. we are looking for VS and VA. i need you to find these two wires and ohm them to ground. use the metal back of the panel as ground.
Attachments are only available to registered users.
VAs (there are two) start around 3 and go up to 5.34VSs (there are two) start at 2 and fall to 1.04
what scale is your meter on?
It's just on the ohlm setting, but the readings jump up to killiohlms http://imgur.com/SvLqM
ok unhook that connector and tell me if the clicking stops?
Yes it does.
ok see attached picture. plug back in the connector in orange and unhook the one in red and tell me if it clicks or not?
It clicks still when the red one is disconnected.
ok but it did stop when the orange one was unplugged? correct?
That's right. Unplugging the orange plug stopped the clicking but unplugging the red one did not.
ok you need a y-sustain board. here is a link to one.
