Question about Televison & Video

3 Answers

I have a 62 inch Panasonic Plasma that I inherited from a friend (it was apparently going to cost $800 to repair). It worked perfectly for a week, but since then it has continually switched itself off (leaving the little standby light flashing). Occassionally you can get it to go again by switching it on & off continuously, but this is becoming harder & harder

    Thank you. I have pretty much tried most of these things, but not the sleep mode (I dont have a manual, so I am unsure how to do that at this stage)

Sir, try to take the plug off for a couple of minutes to refresh the tv. if still the problem persist then send it to repair service to replace some spare parts and fix your tv. if you try it by yourself you should be careful because it may fatal to you. i had experience that someone was trying to fix his tv and then he shock without knowing what was the cause. its not that affect him but it was an accident. i hope that helps sir!

The problem is the three capacitors.
After you have changed them ,your TV will work nice again.
You will find them easily, if you unscrew the back cover on the plasma TV.
Sorry to tell you, that this is the common problem with these sets.
It is a bad capacitor in the main power supply..
There are really about three of them that go bad from time to time.
You should find an authorized repair facility to fix it.
Dont give your plasma tv for repair to an unauthorized centre.
Good luck.
Hope this will fix your problem.
Thank you for using Fixya.
Let me know your comments too.
Take care.

It sounds like a power supply problem, not anything you have done.This day and age the new electronics are only built for min running requirement, as in the working capacity of the power supply.

It has a standby mode thats why most things have a led to show you if its on or off. so you can have instant picture, if you have turned this type of teleivision off at the wall it would take a few minutes to get a lets say a stable picture.
But this means the the powersupply is only in sleep mode only and uses bare min, to run and when you push the power on button you have life and then your picture.
Try this if and when it comes on and stays on, then it goes off on you, turn it off from at the wall and leave it for 5-10 min and try again, if it comes alive its a heat problem in the supply and maybe a dry joint which needs to be looked at.
If it does not try turning off and on at the set not at the remote, it could be the remote section is not working properly and have the same sort of fault. If you think it could be in the set up, try your sleep mode set up, it could be turned on, so check if the TV goes off at the same time say 5 min's everytime??

If it's the first fault you will have to get it back if its still under warranty very quickly, these are inherent problems, c.
if its the type where you have a power lead that plugs into the set and the wall Check that too, hope this helps
