Question about Panasonic PT-51G44 51" Rear Projection Television

Failed Power Supply

My 51" Panasonic TV has blown the PC Board/ Power Supply (Part # TNP2AA045S) for the second time. I am wondering what keeps causing this to happen. When the TV was working, there were faint wavy lines on both ends of the screen.

It would seem that a surge protector power strip would also fix your problem.

If it blown the second time, you should start to look for a bad or leaky electrolytic cap. visual check first if there is any deformed cap w/c is it's almost bursting on the top, try near the H-output, look for bad ones and your problem will be gone. hope this help

What hendrix is saying is there is a small disc device called a thyristor that goes across the ac line input and an power surge we call it will be stopped there. This thristor is nothing more then 2 silicon diodes back to back with a reversing current of 150 to 170volts rms. Now how this works is if there is an overload or power surge comming intop your house or apartment this devise will conduct at the voltage they are rated for and short cuicut and blow the main ac fuse. Every thing I have thats electronis I install these diodes and havent had a blow out with my electronics since then but have had other things that plug in like the toaster or smething like that..

Power supply can get blown from high-voultage. TV has a mechanizm that shuts it off in cases oh too much current through the system, in order to protect it from getting blown. its only a shot in the dark here, but maybe this mechanizm is broken. use a DMM and measure the voultage in the system, in order to determine if it is normal. I assume you already checked for the obvious blown fuses, bad solders etc. sorry I couldnt be more helpful. good luck.

How do I reset the bios Password on a Panasonic Cf-51

This method may help;
1) Locate and remove the RTC battery
2) locate and remove the main battery and unplug power supply.
3) depress the power button for 30-60 seconds.
you do not have to solder anything to the board if there are posts ic 61,63 on MAIN PCB then just put a jumper across them while you power up. if its just 2 SMD pads just use a needle probe to arc the connection.

PANASONIC VIERA TX55as802b will not switch on red power/standby light blinking once every 3-4 seconds have been told its the screen and it cant be repaired can anyone confirm this or help.thanx

The manual says nothing about the power light flashing at that rate. Unless an expert tells you that's the specific indication for a failed screen, I wouldn't believe it. Most TV's will give you sound even if the display has failed.

Try resetting it by unplugging and waiting 60 seconds before plugging it back in.
If that doesn't work, most likely the power supply board needs to be replaced. Or possibly the T-con board.


If you don't know how to do it yourself, find some local Electronic repair shops, get quotes, try to find reviews on the shops.

Will not turn on, no blinking lights, power coming from cord is good

Sounds like the power supply board is dead. Probably has a blown power line fuse on the board. A power surge will sometimes blow the fuse and protect the board from damage. Replacing the fuse will restore the TV if this is the case. Most times though, the supply has a blown part that causes the fuse to blow and your only option then is to replace the board.

1. Reseating the connector P25 may solve the problem. If it does not.
2.Right before the unit shuts down, check the VSUS voltage at connector P2 of the power supply. If VSUS voltage measures zero volt, disconnect the connector P2 and SS11. Check the VSUS level at socket P2. If it is still low, replace the P board.
3. Unplug the unit andd disconnect the connectors A5, A6, and A7. Apply power to the TV. If a White screen comes up and all voltages check normal, replace the P board.
4. If the TV stays on after isolating the SC board, then replace the SC board and the D board; it is likely that the fuse on the D board is blown

I have a panasonic 50" plasma that turns off about

It can be bad power supply or shorted circuits in the sustain boards which will cause the power supply to go into shutdown mode. You need to open it up and inspect those board for bad caps, blown fuses or burnt parts, Most failure in the PLASMA TV are due to bad power supply, failed Z-sustain Y-sustain boards.

Failed TV, Monitors, Caps :

Learn about bad caps:
Capacitor kits: he can make you a set of caps for you.
Or just make sure to use caps with low ESR, 105c rating such as PANASONIC FM or FC series.
