Customer Question
Plasma TV's - How can...
Plasma TV's - How can I test BEFORE buying boards to determine if the issue is in my Power Supply, Main Board, X or Y Sustains, any board or if it is a panel issue.I have a good multi-meter. Please let me know how to perform these tests. I don't like just buying boards without knowing for sure.I just ordered a Power Supply board for a customer's Samsung Plasma (Samsung PN51F5300), and it still has no power. (Stand-by light is on, press power button and it has two long blinks, then standby light turns off)Thanks.

Hello, attached is the photo of the TV.Please also keep in mind that I am needing information on how to discern boards or panel level problem on any tv, not just this one. So, if there is a general troubleshooting method for any tv, that is what i am looking for.
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 11 months ago

I'm afraid the troubleshooting method depends on TV chassis and the problem so it varies, I guess I may not be helpful for you in this matter so will opt out to repost this question for other experts to assist you further.

Thanks

You really have no information on how to troubleshoot other than just buying boards and seeing if it works?
