Introduction
<Introduction>
1. Basic concept of how to determine the defective board
1) Verification of voltages
Normally, when there is a power problem, shutdown occurs immediately.
So, to resolve a power problem, voltage checks are necessary before shutdown.
2) Check if the power comes up after disconnecting the board under suspicion.
If power comes up (*) after disconnecting a board, the board is defective.
(*) Power comes up equals no shutdown.
2. Troubleshooting Video and Audio problems
3. Examples of video problems
4. Adjustment after PCB exchange
1) After exchanging the following boards, voltage adjustment is required.
P board, SC board, SS board => Please refer to the Service Manual.

SU/SD Board Isolation Procedure
Procedure to isolate the SU/SD board
For SU board: Disconnect connectors SC41/SU41, SU11/SD11.
For SD board: Disconnect connectors SC42/SD42, SC46/SD46, and
SU11/SD11.
Isolating the SU/SD board does not require the removal of its mounting
screws.
Place a jumper between VF Ground (labeled H.V. DANGER) on the SU
board or SD board and coil L801 on the SC board, see figure 6 and 7.
The jumper can be connected to the floating ground screws on the SU
board, which are located above and below connector SU41, see figure 2.
Caution: Before turning the unit on, confirm that the jumper is not
connected to a chassis ground screw, as this will cause severe damage
to the unit. Confirm proper connection by measuring continuity
between floating ground and chassis ground. The resistance should be
in the kilo-ohms range.

Troubleshooting for Picture Problems
37
Diagnostic Method for Troubleshooting PDP Television
<Introduction>
1. There are two kinds of picture problem
1) Abnormal picture
2) No picture
2. Basic concept of determining the defective board
1) Which area is the symptom displayed on the screen?
A. Part of the screen
B. All over the screen
3. Adjustment after PCB exchange
1) After exchanging the following boards, voltage adjustment is required.
P board, SC board, SS board => Please refer to Service Manual.
38
Troubleshooting for Picture Trouble
Where is
the symptom
displayed?
*Note :Panel gas leakage
Because of a very small crack in the
panel, gas leakage will start.
In this picture, gas leakage started at
the left top corner.
Finally, gas leakage will lead to the
symptom No picture with buzz
noise .

Self-check Procedure
56
How to access the self-check
screen to reset the unit.
Select a television channel, and while
pressing the [VOLUME ( - )] button on
the main unit, press the [OK] button on
the remote control for more than 3
seconds.
How to Exit the self-check
screen
Press and hold the Power button on
the TV for 5 seconds or disconnect the
AC cord from the wall outlet.
Self-check Screen
CHASSIS: GPH11D
All models
TV volume down & OK on remote only does a basic IC self check. It does NOT Reset the TV.
It does not clear channel programmed settings, picture settings, channel labels, LOCK mode settings, or password.
Using this method, it shows the unit firmware version (Peaks 1.050 and GenX 1.00) and it checks IC communications ONLY.
This is more useful to identify the firmware version without having to decode the info in the setup menu About/Version screen.
NOTE: This procedure does
not reset the TV
