PLASMA Overview
Troubleshooting
Safety & Handling Regulations
1. Approximately 10 minute pre-run time is required before adjustment.
2. Do not exceed Higher voltage than is required for the product.
3. Be cautious of electric shock from the PDP module since the PDP module uses high voltage, and it is
recommended that you should not touch the drive circuits for at least one minute because of residual
current stored.
4. Circuit drive has c-mos circuits which should be protected from static electricity.
5. The PDP Module must be carried by two people.
6. Be careful of short circuit when measuring voltage.
7. Be cautious of screws and other metal objects to prevent short in circuitry.
Checking Point before Requesting MODULE Repair
1. Check the appearance of Panel and boards.
2. Check the model label. Verify model names and board model matches.
3. Check details of defective condition and history.
Ex) COF long 2-1 fail, address 1 line open, Y b/d trouble, Mal-discharge on screen.

Switch Mode Power Supply Troubleshooting
This Section of the Presentation will cover troubleshooting the Switch Mode Power Supply for the Single
Scan Plasma. Upon completion of the section the technician will have a better understanding of the operation
of the Power Supply circuit and will be able to locate voltage and test points needed for troubleshooting and
alignments.

Troubleshooting Steps
•
•
•
•
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
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 eminent 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.

Troubleshooting
Deep Sleep Mode - Guide Plus not programmed or Cable Card not installed
and set is plugged in and turned off. The SMPS outputs S 5v (Standby). Guide Plus has been
programmed the set will remain in Standby Mode when turned off for approximately 2 hours and
go into Deep Sleep Mode. The unit can be taken out of DS Mode as needed for TVGOS Data.
Standby Operation - Guide Plus has been programmed or a Cable Card is
installed and unit is powered off the SMPS will output 19v,12v, 6v, 5vS, and 3.3v Supplies.
Full Power On - SMPS outputting all of the Standby Voltages and the
VA, VS, and 5v DC, set in full operation.

Hard Drives the Beginning
Hard disks were invented in the
1950s. They started as large disks
up to 20 inches in diameter
holding just a few megabytes.
They were originally called "fixed
disks" or "Winchesters" (a code
name used for a popular IBM
product). They later became
known as "hard disks" to
distinguish them from floppy disks.
Hard disks have a hard platter that
holds the magnetic medium, as
opposed to the flexible plastic film
found in tapes and floppies.

Plasma Display Panel Troubleshooting - 2007
75
Hard Drives Today
Hard drives have now become
very small and can store
massive amounts of data. As of
2005, over 98% of the world's
hard disks are manufactured by
just a handful of large firms:
Seagate, Maxtor (acquired by
Seagate in May 2006), Western
Digital, Samsung, and Hitachi
which owns the former disk
manufacturing division of IBM.

LG uses Seagate Hard Drives
The 160 Gigabyte Barracuda Hard
Drive from Seagate is built into
several models of LG televisions
and provides about 15 hours of
HDTV recording or 66 hours of
SDTV recording without the need
of any external accessories.
It is a 3.5 inch serial ATA (Advanced
Technology Attachment) Hard
Drive.
Plasma Display Panel Troubleshooting - 2007
77
Recent Hard Drive Upgrade
In addition the grommets for
HDD mounting have been
changed to P/N 5040V00101B
*Rubber changed from hard material
to soft material
LG recently started replacing the HDD that was designed for PC
use (P/N:6744B00040A) with a low-noise HDD designed for A/V
use (P/N:6744B91953A). The original HDD is shown on the right
and the upgraded version is shown on the left.

Hard Drive Control
The SiI3512 is a single-chip PCI to 2-port
Serial ATA host controller. Based on a
32-bit 66 MHz PCI interface, the SiI3512
provides support for two independent
Serial ATA devices. The second Serial ATA
output is used to control the memory card
