I just want to let You all know that the fix mentioned in this thread works for LG 50PS8000 as well.
First of all a big "thank you" to Tom669 for sharing his wisdom on plasma TV's.
Also thanks for all the advices, pictures and feedback in general in this thread. It was all very helpful, and helped me to fix my TV
I've been a happy owner of a LG 50PS8000 TV since 2009.
An amazing TV, but a year ago or so it started to develop the problems that are mentioned in the thread.
At first it was just barely noticeable, but it was getting worse over time. The last couple of month my TV picture looked like the picture attached by "scottymcp".
Last week I was about to throw it away and buy a new TV.
Luckily I found this thread just in time.
I attached some pictures I took under the repair.
Hopefully they could be useful.
I didn't see any visual errors with the soldering. No cracks at all.
I gave a fresh layer of soldering on the joints of the 5 coils on both YSUS and ZSUS (see the pictures)
(I know I did a bad soldering job, but it worked
The result is amazing, my old TV is as good as new!!!!
Once again thank you all so much.
From a very happy PlasmaTV fixer
