How to Repair Your Plasma TV With Blinking LED
DON'T THROW IT OUT!!! Another youtube repair video that applies to many popular brands of 32"- 52+" Plasma TVs. Samsung makes most Plasma screens on earth, hence your *whatever brand name* Plasma TV has both the Samsung screen AND the matching Samsung power supply board. So this video most likely applies to you. :) If your TV is different inside or is LCD, then simply look for blown capacitors in other locations. Youtube "Pictures of bad capacitors" for a quick tutorial. The parts listed in this video are for the two 3,300uF capacitors identified in this video only. If replacing a capacitor in a different location, be sure your replacement capacitor has the same voltage and capacitance rating. I recommend only Panasonic EB series electrolytic capacitors as they are extremely well made. Capable of surviving the high temperature/stress application in the power supply. Finally, If the entire family waited in anxious glory as you unboxed that new TV.... get a UPS for it. The UPS unit will save you from many capacitor related problems. Has to be a UPS, not a simple surge or spike protector..... UPS has a small internal computer and a battery source that monitors your AC socket for surges (from vacuum cleaners or microwave ovens). If there is a quick spike, it kills it and switches over to another source of power. It is almost a requirement for any new high dollar appliance!!! UPS = uninterruptible power supply = $80-$100 from the local office supply superstore.
