Bad capacitors...! Remove rear panel cover from tv. Most require a star screwdriver. Look for bulging caps in power supply board. (3300uf 10v ) caps need to be replaced with 3300uf 16v. Identify the bad caps.... Caps are bad when they are bulged/bulged and raised. A good Cap is flat X top not raised or buldged. I have pics of what bad caps look like on these boards. Email me if you would like to to see them. Caps cost abywhere from 1-2 dollars or you can buy them in lots of 10 or 12 on ebay for around 8 bucks. Caps need to be soldered on. Do it yourself (if confortable) or take it to a tech/pc repair shop in your local area. Do do that unplug all the wire harness from the board and unscrew the boarda nd take to your teck to solder on the new caps.

You can fix this for about 20 bucks if you have someone else solder or 40 cents if you buy the caps on ebay and replace the 2 bad ones yourself. If one is bad and the other is not replace them both.

The caps go bad because they need to be a higher voltage. 10 insn't enough..... 16 is plenty and don't go any higher than that.


Good Luck

    Could be the SC or SU board. However while working on one of these I had no V on the 5V distribution from the P. Tracing Pv5 to the D alrarm panel and then on to the SS. I replaced the P nothing replaced the D nothing then replaced the SS and the set fired up.



    Could be any one of the boards. I also replaced caps on the PS.



    I have a comparable service manual if anyone is interested...

Last night we worked on a TH-50PZ700U with this exact set of symptoms. We swapped out the H and DG boards with a known good unit (mine!), to no avail. Still no power and 12 blinks. Then we swapped the D board and it worked immediately and perfectly.

I cannot tell you if this is the right revision, but here is the board we swapped.

Unfortunately your going to have to have it serviced by an Authorized Panasonic Dealer. Independent shops will not be authorized to order parts without the consent of Panasonic. They are rough to deal with.

I have the same problem Panasonic Plasma TV wont come.


Alot of times capacitors on the power supply circuit board will go bad. They will bulge/dome or dry up which will cause this problem. Bad caps dont hold a charge, which is needed to maintain a voltage. The circuit board is two sided which makes replacing the caps difficult, and the board can be damaged and have to be replaced. Taking it to a repair shop may be cheeper and safer then doing it yourself. Having two-six caps replaced is a lot cheeper then a new board.

Panasonic TH-42PX60U plasma TV: red blinking light


are you using a PC to feed a signal or maybe a cable with an adapter?
I had the same issue when I used one of the rear HDMI ports to show a PC display. Apparently there is a software difference between the rear and side/front ports. Inputting the PC through the side HDMI port has solved the problem for me (so far!)

TH-42PX60U red light blinks 10 times wont come on


On a Panasonic TV the 10-blink error code can sometimes be caused by low voltage running through an HDMI cable, particularly from a Media PC or some video game consoles. Try disconnecting any HDMI cables and unplugging the Television for 30 seconds, then power it on without the cables attached.

If this works, connect the cables to the front panel (usually HDMI-3) which uses a different controller board.

I had a similar problem where my TH-42PX60 would turn on but all controls were disabled. I could not change channel, input, volume or anything other than turning the TV on and off. I called customer support and they directed me to this site: http://www.pasctraining.panasonic.com/specialapplications/productfirmwaredownloads/downloads1.asp to download a firmware update onto an SD Card. I inserted the SD card into the slot in my TV and powered it on. The update took about 3 minutes and I haven't had a problem since.
This is a link to the instructions to install the update:
