sorry, there was sound from the stations but TV was connected to the sound system.

OK I just need to know some info from you is there any sound from the set itself?

If no sound is the power-light on the front of the set lit in the ON mode?or OFF standby?

If light lit in the ON mode and you press the menu button of the sets own remote does the menu come up please

Sorry there is sound coming out from the channels. Power light is on and will shut off when turned off or standby. No commands show up on screen - no menu, no sources when press source button, no volume indicator values.

Can you see any visible light even feint light at all on the display?

Curious, i used PayPal to pay for this conversation. It deducted &38. Is this just for this instant or is this a monthly subscription? I don't really want a subscription.

I am not privvy to any billing queries you need to speak with support about that, I am just using the site like you are

no light what so ever. I watched a youtube video on shopjimmy.com saying something about the y-sustain and y-buffer boards but there's so many boards on there.

Yes its usually problem with the scan boards for black screens on plasma usually the boards go short circuit

Ask Your Own TV Question

The procedure is to check that out with a meter if there are shorted boards they are ordered and fitted in the set

Customer reply replied 4 months ago
which board on the back am i looking to switch out?
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
but***** *****ne - is this worth my trouble of not?

Its very likely at this time that is what your issue is let me know if you think you can do work yourself

No its not done that way just by looking and saying that or that board is bad to verify the suspicion there are checks to do on ohms with a meter

Ask Your Own TV Question

Plasma sets are no longer manufactured and considered older technology however if you can do the work yourself that is about the most economical way involving a technician is not really recommended

Ask Your Own TV Question

Because costs could be over $300

Ask Your Own TV Question
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
oh boy. I am familiar with checking power with meter like when to see if a plug in works. other than that mmmmm probably not
Customer reply replied 4 months ago
how much do boards run? y-sustain or y-buffer boards

Yes its not every ones cup of tea......

You could ring around for prices though from a tech www.tvrepairpros.com will locate a tech in your area

Ask Your Own TV Question

Boards vary on plasma you will get an idea if you go to shopjimmy.com with your model number
