I have a Toshiba Model 42H66 plasma TV. It made a loud crack, blew a LT4A250VP fuse, and the screen went black. The sound is OK. The TV is 19 months old, and had been red pixelating onn a blank screen for about 3 months before this happened. I replaced the fuse and turned it on. Another loud crack and no picture, not even the welcome screen. What do I need to replace?

1.) The new fuse blew immediately on power up along with the loud crack like a hard hand clap;

2.) The new fuse was an exact replacement;

3.) The model number take right from the set back( I have it off) is 42H66.

what country is the tv from?

I am really sorry, but the model number is XXXXX The P is sort of obliterated, but I found the number in another place on the TV.

 

The TV was assembled in Thailand.

 

Again, sorry for the screwup.

Thats more like it :) thanks for getting that I was going nuts trying to locate technician information for you.

 

Ok, I need to know what the location of the fuse is? (on the circuit board there should be a number printed near it, I need that number)

 

Also what board is the fuse on?

 

Thanks,

Tim

Facing the rear, on the left side about 2/3 up from the bottom on the right edge of the circuit board, there are 2 fuses mounted(vertically, that is longways is up and down) next to each other. The left one is the one blowing.There is a white paper label on the bottom edge of the board. It says:

 

6871QYH053B

YSUS

KP42061J038720

can you send me a picture of the board?

(if you can post a picture, please click the icon above where you are typing with the green tree on it. This will allow you to upload a picture)

 

if not thats ok, I can answer your question just want to be 100% sure so I don't give you bad information.

 

Thanks,

board with fuses shown

 

On the far right of this picture you can see the 2 fuses side by side. The left one blows. On the far left is a tall narrow board plugged into this one. It has many LSI's on it ( about 7 I think). See the next picture.

 

Left side

 

ok, unplug the narrow board (this is called a y buffer and some manufactures call them a scan driver) Unplug the board, replace the fuse and turn it on again. Does the fuse blow?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago

The fuse did not blow with the board unplugged.

did the set come on?

Customer reply replied 8 years ago
I got perfect sound as before but the fuse did not blow, nor did the display show any signs of life.

Do you know how to use a meter? if so i need you to check the voltage at the fuse

 

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 8 years ago

Will it be DC or AC volts?

dc, use the back of the panel as ground, any of the metal will work

 

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
I get about 200 volts on the fuse.

thats 200v on the fuse that is blowing right?

 

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
Correct.

You need to replace that y-sus board, the part number is XXXXX

 

http://www.encompassparts.com/ is the best place to buy these at in my opinion, but you can choose anywhere you like.

 

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do for you.

Is that the board with the fuses? or the tall narrow board?
the board with the fuses, the 200v line feeds that board not the other one.

Thank you very much
Customer reply replied 8 years ago
The web site you gave me only lists a 75003033 part number that is anywhere close to the number you gave me.

https://www.encompassparts.com/webwiz/wwiz.asp?wwizmstr=WEB.SEE&partnumber=6817120

 

that should be the part you need.

 

Let me know if it doesnt work.

I replaced the 70053031 board tonight. It was real fun. About 3.5 hours labor. Put it all back together, and turned the TV on. Sound, but no picture whatever. Funny, but the fuse did not blow this time. Oh well, I'm just gonna junk the TV. Never again with anything Toshiba.

I am signing off for the night but thought I would send you a quick note first....

 

You made sure you have all of the wires plugged in correctly right?

Made sure you hooked up that tall an skinny board correctly?

 

just double check everything, this should have been cut and dry...

 

I will be back tomorrow if you have any more questions.

 

Thanks,
Tim

I checked and double-checked all plugs. All are OK. On my High Performance LINUX servers at work, I have changed many motherboards with multiple CPUs, so I am familiar with all of those connectors, even the crappy edge connector on the YSUS board.

Well I guess there is the possibility that when the y-sus went bad it damaged other boards along with it, but considering ordering more parts means more money and no way to accurately diagnose it any further then I would say your previous statement about tossing it might be the best way to do? Sorry about your bad luck..

 

Please let me know if there is anything else I can do for you!

 

Thanks,

Tim

Not yoour fault. I found lots of people bitching about Toshiba plasma TVs on the internet. I just wish I had know 19 months ago about Toshiba. I bought it by name recognition. Oh well, live and learn. I am already looking at a Panasonic 42" plasma.

Thanks, XXXXX XXXXX good day!
