    Ok, i have a sony PFM-42B1E, When the On button is pressed the TV goes to turn on and clicks but the screen never fires up, the green LED stays on once on and then the red LED starts flashing on for 1sec off for 1sec continuously whilst the green LED is still lit, any ideas what the problem is? do you think it could be the power board?

    No not tried them as its no longer in warranty, i have the service manual here for this model, and after having a look at it i suspect it's the power board.

    well in that case you need someone to fit the Powerboard...not sure if sony let anyone with a spares account repair Plasma or not.... Stilll think you need to contact them tho, even tho its not under warranty.

    Hi. I'm one of probably many Sony owners with a problem with my Plasma, just the way you describe. Have you fixed the problem, and if you have what was it / how much ? Please respond, regards Paul :lease:

    Snap...

    I've got a sony from the same PFM range.. my one suffers from phantom ghosting.. whereby if a character moves very fast the pixels are slow in changing hence u get left behind with a ghost/sparkie effect... i must say that the pfm when working gives a much better quality pic than most plasmas...

    my problem is only really noticeable when watching dvd or hd material.. sky through composite doesnt present it so much.. its nothing to do with the cabling either. does this whether its shvs or vga:confused:
