The audio output section circuit has the fault. Check and replace audio output circuit board as card basis.

if you have an external antenna on your roof, then you would need to connect the antenna "Ant." (coaxial) If you have to old style 2 wire setup, you will have to get an adapter.


Page 8 of your manual shows the connection it at the top-right of the TV's rear......

I think I have the same problem, If I don't use it for a couple of days, then try to turn it on, nothing. I turn it off, and on one more time, it works. WEIRD

hi did you mean when you turn on the unit the light indicator will flash but will not turn on until you plug and then re plug the tv unit the power will come out. now if this always be the problem just unplug first the unit to discharge excessive voltage at the primary capacitor of the power supply and to reset the error detected by the processor. now after an hour try to plug the unit and observe if the problem will not come out. if still the same problem you will need to open the tv unit now look for the power supply and replaced capacitors that bulged to its casing it was leak then the voltage will drop. you can found parts at www.digikey.com replaced with same rating panasonic brand much better.good luck just give feed back to us if it is work i'm glad to help you.

"IF" there is one available you "MIGHT" find it here, looking it up by the remote and then brand TV - - - http://www.remotecodelist.com/remotes/
but don't count on it... These units are made by Prima and the remotes are as elusive as the lack of parts...
Good news is I think the original remotes are still available for about $40.00 dollars..

Hope this helps!
