Question about Panasonic TH-42PD50U 42 in. Plasma EDTV

1 Answer

3 months ago Led blinks 7 times now Led blinks 6 times

I should have gotten the extended warranty. Almost one year and this Plasma trash failed to come on again for the second time. On power up the unit red LED just blinks at me 6 times. Too bad I am still paying for it. Also very slow on channel switching which also could be the remote.
Three months ago it failed with the 7 Led indicator and was repaired by Best Buy, now this. What should I do next three months when it fails again. Panasonic Plasma has issues, Don't Buy.

Sorry to hear that. You could fix it with Best Buy or the warranty service repairman recommended by Panasonic.com
I have a client that had used one of the panasonic repairman to fix the same problem that you have about a year ago,the TV is good ever seen.
I am in the A/V installation business, my recommendation(Pioneer Kuro Plasma TV or Sharp LCD.)Very good track records from my clients.

Panasonic sent a repairman out with the correct part after telling them about the seven blinks. The unit was out of warranty. They rock. Call 800-211-7262 or 800-524-1448 1

Blinking red led light when I plug in the tv then it turns right


Phillips purchases the main circuit board from Samsung, and it has a problem with capacitors failing. The failed capacitors can be easily identified as the top will no longer be flat, but will have bulged up.
If you have a local TV repair shop they can help you.

TV Won't Turn On


Are you from US or Canada? I'm Panasonic authorized and allways Pana covered the warranty after 1 month from the expire date. Call Panasonic Viera service and tell them the story. I'm sure you'll get refound.
Anyway, a horizontal line doesn't mean the PDP is defective. It's one scan IC burned on the SU or SD board (depend where the line is). We allways replaced the SC bord each time SU or SD got burned. If after SD and SC replacement it still defective...yes the PDP has one scan line in short.
Call Viera and insist to get warranty. Let me know. Good luck!

NO VIDEO


I have a Samsung 50" plasma, that has been blacking out over the last 6 months. A 9/2005 set. Now its practically unwatchable as it happens 3 times in an hour. Its not heat related - I have a high volume 9" fan activated on TV power on. Turning the set offf/on usually makes it come back for a now short while. Considering to go put it in the back of my pickup and park it in front of Best Buy and discourage Samsung purchases. This is the 2nd Samsung TV I've purchased (the other a 32" tube) I gave to my folks a couple years ago and its gone bad as well. Samsung product may look good, but their video engineers are not.

1 Blink SOS: This shutdown operation is usually caused by a lack of communication between the A and the D boards.
1 Blink SOS: This shutdown operation may be caused by the improper connection of a SS board connector to the panel.
2 Blinks SOS: Pin 87 of the MPU IC9003 monitors the 15V line. During normal operation, the transistors Q9053 and Q9054 output a high to pin 87. If the 15V line is missing or shorted, a low is provided to pin 87. As a result, the unit shuts down and the power LED blinks 2 times.
3 Blinks SOS: IC9807 is a 3.3V regulator located on the D board. Its output is monitored by IC9003. If the 3.3V is not present at pin 86, the MPU shuts down the unit. The power LED blinks 3 times.
5 Blinks SOS: Pin 85 of the MPU IC9003 monitors the 5V line. During normal operation, the transistors Q9051 and Q9052 output a high to pin 85. If the 5V line is missing or shorted, a low is provided to pin 85. As a result, the unit shuts down and the power LED blinks 5 times.
6 Blinks SOS: Pin 90 of the MPU IC9003 monitors the status of the SC board. During normal operation, the transistor Q6581 and IC6581 output a low to pin 90. If the SC board becomes defective, a high is provided to pin 90. As a result, the unit shuts down and the power LED blinks 6
6 Blinks SOS: 6 blinks of the power LED may also be obtained from pin 3 of IC9003, the DRV_RESET input. The D board provides the 5V source needed to power the C boards. On the C2 board, the 5V is routed back to the D board via connector C20/C10, C11/D31 causing pin 3 of IC9003 to be high. If 5V is not routed back to the D board, pin 3 of IC9003 goes low. The set goes into shutdown mode and the power LED emits 6 blinks.
7 Blinks SOS: Pin 93 of the MPU IC9003 monitors the status of the SC, SU, SD board. During normal operation, the photo-coupler PC6480 outputs a low to pin 93. If the SC, SU, or SD board becomes defective, a high is provided to pin 93. As a result, the unit shuts down and the power LED blinks 7 times.
8 Blinks SOS: Pin 91 of the MPU IC9003 monitors the status of the SS board. During normal operation, pin 8 of connector SS23 outputs a low to pin 91. If the SS board becomes defective, a high is provided to pin 91. As a result, the unit shuts down and the power LED blinks 8 times.
10 Blinks SOS: The SUB5V and DT9V sources created on the A board are monitored by IC1100. If they are not present at pin 30 and 34, the MPU shuts down the unit. The power LED blinks 10 times.
10 Blinks SOS: The F_STB_15V of the P board, as well as the derived SUB5V and DT9V sources are monitored on the A board for excessive current. If a short circuit is developed in one of the supplied lines, pin 114 of IC1100 receives a high. The SUB5V and DT9V lines are also monitored for excessive voltage. When an over-voltage condition is detected, a high is also output to pin 114 of IC1100. The DT9V is provided to a DC/DC converter to create the BT30V for the tuner. If the BT30V becomes excessive, a high is output to pin 114 of IC1100. A high at pin 114 of IC1100 causes the unit to shutdown and the power LED to blink 10 times.
