I turned off my plasma tv and static electricity hit the power button. Now none of the buttons work on the tv, but the power button on the remote works fine. The volume bar stays on and I cant access the OSD or change the source. Picture is fine and can still watch tv. I don't have the model number on hand as I am at work. my E-mail is firstname.lastname@example.org Thanks for the help!

Re: Sabre 42 in plasma tv stuck on component 1
Remove the power from the wall and leave the TV off for at least an hour, the static charge may have shorted the circuit board for the pront panel controlls. after an hour or so plug it back in to see if has reset itself

static electricity can damage the chips on the boards. it all depends were the static voltage went to, if it was just to the buttons controller board or to the main av board. you could need new button board or you could need to replace the main board and the button board its hard to say with static shock.
This is not good. Was your tv unplugged or just power button off when you left for vacation. PlasmaTvs are highly susceptible to damage from power surges caused by lighting. Leave unplugged for at least five minutes then plug back in and see if this helps.
There is a problem with cracked solder on the y sustain power lead leading to the y sustain board. You can fix it if you are handy with soldering. 4 out of 5 pins on mine had cracked solder allowing arching.
fot the most part, you have solved your problem (pow bd), The main bd may also need to be replaced as well. The is a signal upon powering up the system. the pow bd communicates with the signal board. The signal bd, also is responsible for ALL of your additional I/O lines. Between the two of these, + a firmware update, i think the tv will be just fine.
Resetting the TV If the buttons on the remote AND the buttons on the TV case do not work (channels do not change and you cannot open or navigate the menu), the TV has stopped responding. Reset the TV as follows:
NOTE: Some TVs have a reset button. If available and accessible, try using the reset buttons before using the steps below. Using the reset buttons can save time. 1. Unplug the TV power cord from the power outlet. 2. Unplug any connected devices (DVD, Set-top boxes, etc...) 3. Press and hold the TV power button for five seconds. 4. Plug the TV power cord back into the power outlet and turn on the TV. 5. Open the on-screen menu to confirm that the TV is responding again. 6. Turn off the TV and reconnect the devices. 7. Turn on the TV.
i just had this same problem with my 42" akai plasma and after getting no help no where i finally figured it out on my own. The model i have is a PDP42Z5TA but my guess it will work with yours also.if your remote is like mine there should be a "set" button somewhere up at the the top.hold this down till the "tv" button goes solid red. with the tv on or off keep pressing the power button till the tv turns on or off( dont go too fast) or you can pass it up easily cause when the tv does turn on or off you have to hit enter to lock it in.
I am working on one with the same problem, there is a hidden power button on the underside of the tv, just below the normal power button on the front. Make sure you didn't hit this button. It must be a vacation power button. This button blends in with the case, but it is square button
