Hello Dan, I have a vision...
Hello Dan,
I have a vision 50" plasma and just had modules replaced under the heatsinks on y-sus. Still getting a scrambled set of colors running through the middle third of the screen. Any suggestions?

Not on just answer.com. self diagnosis paid off for the modules but I'm a little out of my league now ☺
TV Technician: Dan, Master Tech and Repair Facility Trainer replied 2 years ago

OK, can you get me a picture of what the TV is doing? Worth 1,000 words....

Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Real one? How? In words...middle third of screen has spotted/scrambled color (all)
. Outer thirds have nothing.....at least first run. Second run...just mild blue spotting on lower center section of screen.
TV Technician: Dan, Master Tech and Repair Facility Trainer replied 2 years ago

Eh, I really need to see a picture. Do you have a digital camera? Does your cell phone take pictures?

Can do...how do I attach or send?
TV Technician: Dan, Master Tech and Repair Facility Trainer replied 2 years ago

You can attach a picture directly to this thread. Somewhere on your chat page, there is a little paper clip icon... that's the attachment tool. Otherwise, you can upload the picture to any sharing site like Imgur.com, Photobucket.com, or even Facebook. Just give me a link to wherever you post it.

Got pic...working this out...just sec. It's off phone...pad pixelation blah ☺
TV Technician: Dan, Master Tech and Repair Facility Trainer replied 2 years ago

Hm, I really can't tell what I'm looking at here. Can you stand back a ways so I can see the whole TV? Stand 5-10 feet in front of the TV.

TV Technician: Dan, Master Tech and Repair Facility Trainer replied 2 years ago

OK that's much better. Let me look at some diagrams of your TV and I'll be right back.

TV Technician: Dan, Master Tech and Repair Facility Trainer replied 2 years ago

OK what's the actual model number on the TV? Is it a P50HDTV? The number you posted is the plasma panel #.

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
You are correct...that is the model.
TV Technician: Dan, Master Tech and Repair Facility Trainer replied 2 years ago

What is connected to the TV? Cable box? DVD player? Whatever you've got connected, do you get the same exact picture with all of them?

Currently just DVD. Let me try cable again...earlier same issue with both
TV Technician: Dan, Master Tech and Repair Facility Trainer replied 2 years ago

Is audio OK?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Nothing on sound...dvd or cable input ...difficult to tell if my input selection is correct though....remoteless
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Confirmed no sound or pic on either dvd or digital selections...light visual in upper left corner of screen when held at rght angle. Dtv came through in bright green.
TV Technician: Dan, Master Tech and Repair Facility Trainer replied 2 years ago

Who replaced parts on the Ysus? What parts? The IPMs?

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Per visual of soldering work...ipms only. Coppell's out of carrollton, tx. Did not receive itemized invoice.
TV Technician: Dan, Master Tech and Repair Facility Trainer replied 2 years ago

Did they run any diagnostics on the rest of the board? It would definitely appear that the Ysus is the culprit, but with IPMs replaced I would wonder about the rest of the board. Fuses, transistors, etc. Were they checked? You might consider replacing the Ysus in its entirety... cheaper at this point.

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 2 years ago
Definitely considered. While their work has produced more picture than before, there is a light gummy residue on the upper surface. It was sent like that, and came back like that. Same type residue on underside of top flap connected to ysus but no obvious leaks or burnouts on either.
TV Technician: Dan, Master Tech and Repair Facility Trainer replied 2 years ago

I like Coppell's. Definitely a good name if you ask most of us around here. I think they were on the right track. Suggest replacing the PCB.

My pleasure. Whatever the result, please do let me know. I also like learning and always keep notes on this stuff.
