Safety & Handling Regulations

1. Approximately 10 minute pre-run time is required before any adjustments are performed.
2. Refer to the Voltage Sticker inside the Panel when making adjustments on the Power Supply, Y SUS and Z SUS Boards.
Always adjust to the specified voltage level (+/- volt).
3. Be cautious of electric shock from the PDP module since the PDP module uses high voltage, check that the Power Supply
and Drive Circuits are completely discharged because of residual current stored before Circuit Board removal.
4. C-MOS circuits are used extensively for processing the Drive Signals and should be protected from static electricity.
5. The PDP Module must be carried by two people.
6. Exercise care when making voltage and waveform checks to prevent costly short circuits from damaging the unit.
7. Be cautious of lost screws and other metal objects to prevent a possible short in the circuitry.

Checking Points to be Considered


1. Check the appearance of the Replacement Panel and Circuit Boards for both physical damage and part number accuracy.
2. Check the model label. Verify model names and board model matches.
3. Check details of defective condition and history. Example: Y Board Failure, Mal-discharge on screen, etc.

Troubleshooting

Basic Troubleshooting Steps


Define, Localize, Isolate and Correct

Define
Look at the symptom carefully and determine what circuits could be causing the failure. Use your
senses Sight, Smell, Touch and Hearing. Look for burned parts and check for possible overheated components.
Capacitors will sometimes leak dielectric material and give off a distinct odor. Frequency of power supplies will
change with the load, or listen for relay closing etc.

Localize
After carefully checking the symptom and determining the circuits to be checked and after giving a
thorough examination using your senses the first check should always be the DC Supply Voltages to those circuits
under test. Always confirm the supplies are not only the proper level but be sure they are noise free. If the supplies
are missing check the resistance for possible short circuits.

Isolate
To further isolate the failure, check for the proper waveforms with the Oscilloscope to make a final
determination of the failure. Look for correct Amplitude Phasing and Timing of the signals also check for the
proper Duty Cycle of the signals. Sometimes glitches or road bumps will be an indication of an imminent failure.

Correct
The final step is to correct the problem. Be careful of ESD and make sure to check the DC Supplies
for proper levels. Make all necessary adjustments and lastly always perform a Safety AC Leakage Test before
returning the product back to the Customer.

50PC5D
Power Supply Operation and Troubleshooting
AC Voltage is supplied to the SMPS Board at Connector CN101 from the AC Input Filter. Standby 5V is developed
from Transformer T121 and from pin 4 of Z602 and is routed to 2 circuits, first the Micro Processor IC4015 via P801
Pin 5 to the Main Board and second to the Sub Micon Board PKG4 on the SMPS, where AC ON / DETECT is
developed and sent from to Pin 7 of P801 to IC4015. With the presence of both 5V STB and AC ON/ DETECT,
IC4015 is active.
When IC4015 receives an ON Command from either the Keyboard or the Remote IR Signal it outputs a high
to RL-ON which enters the SMPS Board at Pin 6 of P801. The high RL-ON Signal then is sensed by the
Sub Micon Board PKG4 which causes the Relays RL101 and RL102 to close turning on the 380V Supply
developing the 19V,12V, 6V and 3.4V Voltage Sources.
The next step is for IC4015 to output a high on POD Line to the SMPS at P801 Pin 1 which is sensed by the PKG4
Sub Micon Board turning on the 5V VCC line.
The last step to bring the supply to Full Power occurs when IC4015 brings the VS-ON line high at Pin 3 of P801
on the SMPS Board which when sensed by the PKG4 Sub Micon Board turns on the VA and VS Supplies.

SWITCH MODE POWER SUPPLY

Troubleshooting

Remember if a voltage is missing check for proper resistance before proceeding


Understanding the Power On Sequence when Troubleshooting a possible Power Supply Failure will
simplify the process of isolating which circuit board failed to operate properly. In this Section we will
investigate the Power on Sequence and examine ways to locate quickly where the failure occurred.
Check the Power On LED for Operation a Red LED indicates a presence of 5V STB and AC-ON/DETECT
Failure of the Power ON LED to light is an indication of loss of 5V STB or AC ON/ Detect remember the 5V STB
and AC-ON/DETECT are developed on the SMPS and sent to the Main Board.
Listen for Relay Click, the click of the Relay is an indication of RL-ON going high. RL-ON is sent from the
Main Board to the SMPS and when present the PKG4 controls the Relay Operation. RL-ON going High and
no Relay is a failure of the SMPS, RL-ON staying low is a failure of the Main Board.
Relay Operation means that the SMPS if working properly will output 19V, 12V, 6V, and 3.4V to the Main Board.
These voltages will allow the Tuner, Audio and Video Circuits on the Main Board to function, and if connected to an
Antenna Input, Audio would be present. If the Relays closed and these supplies failed suspect a problem with the
SMPS.
The next step of operation calls for the POD line from the Main Board to the SMPS to go high. A high on the
POD Line activates the 5V VCC line. Loss of 5V VCC results in no Raster, no Reset, no Y, Z, Control or X Board
operation. Loss of 5V and POD going high could be caused by any of these boards or failure of the SMPS. POD
Staying low indicates a problem on the Main Board.
VS-ON is the last step of the Power Sequence and is responsible for bringing the VS and VA Voltages up.
The VS-ON signal is sent from the Main Board to the SMPS as a high, VS and VA and full operation of the
Display Panel are now enabled. Loss of VS-ON results in loss of VA and VS and no Raster, no Reset
but Audio would be present. If VS-ON went high and VS and VA where missing the problem could be caused
by a failure on the SMPS or a circuit using these voltages. A Resistance check should narrow the possible
failures quickly.

6709V00001A SMPS Board
This test can confirm the proper operation of the SMPS without the need to exchange the board
for testing purposes.
The Operation of the Power Supply can be Confirmed by removing the SMPS Board and placing it in the
Service Position. Place two 60Watt lamps in series across pins 1,2,3 ( VS ) and 5,6,7,8, ( Ground ).
Apply AC Power and check for 5V STB and AC-ON / DETECT at P801, if present remove AC Power
and install a 100 watt resistor from 5V STB to RL-ON on Connector P801. Apply AC Power
The AC Relays should close and 19V, 12V, 6V, and 3.4V should be Present. If ok remove AC Power.
Install a 100 watt resistor from 5V STB to POD on Connector P801, 5V VCC should now become active,
If present remove AC Power.
Install a 100 1/4 Watt resistor from 5V STB to VS-ON on Connector P801, VS and VA should now be
Present. This test will confirm the normal operation of the SMPS. 6709V00001A

Y Drive Waveform

Troubleshooting a no picture (no raster) symptom can sometimes be made easier by checking the Y
and Z Drive Waveforms. The illustration above shows both waveforms at 100 and 400s time durations.
Since both waveforms are developed independently of each other, checking them will reveal which
circuit has failed. Make note of the wave shapes and phase relationship of the signals, distortion or loss
of the signals when recognized will speed up the troubleshooting process and prevent the need to
replace circuit boards which are working normally.

LVDS
Video Signals from the Main Board to the Control Board are referred to as Low Voltage Differential Signals
or LVDS. Their presence can be confirmed with the Oscilloscope by monitoring the LVDS signals with no
input signal selected while pressing the Menu Button on and off with the Remote Control or Keypad.
Loss of these Signals would confirm the failure is on the Main Board!
