  1. Ho ho ho, my Plasma has died.
    A Panasonic TH-42PV60A

    The fault looks like this:

    A back bar down the right side with a white stripe. Rest of the image is

    It'll go to a local TV service dude in due course, would just like some
    expert opinions on the likely prognosis?

    Rarely gets any use, just a few hours a week at most. Not quite 3 years old.

    Not under warranty of course.

    ** No it hasn't.

    ** Errr - a strip of back "gaffa" tape will fix that one !!

    Dude !!!!!!!!!!!


    Santa brought me a Rigol DS1052E for Xmas.

    One very neat piece of kit.

    The FFT function and the counter with period mode for
    continuous 6 digit resolution are killers.

    The Chinese character instruction booklet is priceless !

  3. Well, ok, it's sick, it has to go to the toy hospital.
    Well, yeah, kinda. But it would suck if say the twin suns on Tatooine became
    just the one sun instead.
    I like Santa!
    Does Santa use eBay?
    Can't believe the price is now almost half of what I paid for mine.
    Yeah, for the price it's pretty darn neat.
    I prefer good Chinglish myself.

    perhaps these may help, even though a different brand.

    My LG 42PY10X had a similar problem, a red line down the left side, I
    don't know whether Panasonic use the LG chassis, I believe that several
    manufacturers do. Mine was caused by the control board which is
    notorious for having bad joints on some resistors. My original idea was
    to resolder the joints until I found out that there were 144 surface
    mount resistors involved, and without a microscope or a workshop manual
    to localise the problem I didn't want to spend the time redoing 288
    surface mount joints, so I bought an upgraded board for $190.

    It took about1.5 hours to change the board, no soldering, just a lot of
    screws and connectors.
