    If its there,The ticking sound is from the relay, I think, that powers the unit. The power supply is probably on the fritz.

    Isn't this unit still under warranty? If so, I urge you to get it covered under the warranty program. You can find the warranty coverage in the owners manual.

    If it is not under warranty try a hard reset just to make sure it is not a software corruption, but I doubt it and it will probably need servicing by a qualified tech.

    HARD RESET: Merely unplug the power cord for 1 hour and reboot.

    Also, look at the troubleshooting page in the manual.

    AND: Try going into the service mode to see if there are error messages that come up telling you more about the trouble it has experienced. You can find out how to get into the service mode at this website.

    Then let me know if you need further help.

With no signal present, and without any user operation, the Panasonic screensaver will
appear automatically after a few minutes to prevent image retention..Remove the signal cable and then connect it back and select the source from the remote in the main menu..

Good luck....

The only setting that can be concerned is the input channel selection. Check also all cables at the back.

If the TV is freezing on startup with the Panasonic logo, and this is not related to the input channel selection, then this is not a setting problem, the firmware/software for the TV is damaged and is not completing the startup test.

On the manual the advice when this happens is to call the service number listed.

To start, unplug TV power cable, and also all input cables, particularly HDMI and receivers cables, for ten minutes and see if this restart the unit.

If that does not work, unplug for longer, let say up to three hours, to drain power from the set completely.

Here is the user manual for your product: Owner's Manuals: 3.98mb PDF

Let me know how it goes.

Thanks,

Check the Input mode. You will have option like AV1 AV2 RGB HDMI etc. Change the input mode one by one and then check.

Please tell me how the TV is connected. Is it cable directly going or do you have any Settop Bix?

Thanks

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Initially, pls try a reset. Two ways:

  • unplug from the mains for an extended period of time, preferably overnight; or
  • press and hold the OK button and Power button down till the screen change;
  • unplug;
  • see if the unit will do an AutoScan. or
  • go into the OSD and reset all the user options
Just a start, do postback how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

First off make sure your tv isn't set to AV mode. Then make sure you have the correct input selected for the video source. If you need further assistance let me know. Please take a moment to accept and rate my solution accordingly.

With the Power On, hold down the Play/Repeat On button for 5 seconds. This will toggle the 'feature' on and off.

    on main unit hold both CH up and CH down at the same time, for 10 seconds. You could give that a try. It should set it back to factory defaults.

Hi I have a panasonic viera TH-42PA50A blinking red light and it just keeps blinking any ideas what it could be


it is not a good sign. If the tv screen is dark (no picture) and no sound but the standby red light is continuously blinking then it could mean the power supply board in tv is faulty.

Usually a few burnt out capacitors on the board but hard to replace yourself unless you are experienced in this sort of work. From the model it appears a reasonably recent unit and you may want to get it checked out by a repairer at least to get an estimate of the cost.
See this site to get some idea of the part costs.

Panasonic TV model no TX-32PD30. Resolution has changed ie become larger and we are losing full screen picture - people are cut out of the screen.


Hi,

The most likely cause of this is that you have accidentally changed the screen aspect ratio. There should be a button on the Panasonic remote marked "ASPECT". With the TV switched on, try pressing the "ASPECT" button repeatedly until the picture either returns to the correct size or you are unsuccessful and cycle back to the original picture size.

You will probably find that you are currently on one of the "ZOOM" settings. The correct setting should either be "AUTO" or "16:9".

If this does not solve your problem, please post back for further assistance. If you are using another receiving device, e.g. a Sky / FreeSat or Freeview box, it is also possible that you need to change the ratio setting of the receiving equipment. Please let me know the details of any additional receiving equipment you are using if/when replying.

Regards,
BElectric.

How come the top and sometimes the bottom of my screen are cut off


Not all bradcast are in 16:9 resolution (wide screen). Most are still in 4:3 (old TV).
Sometime the advertisements are in 16:9 letterbox to project correctly on 4:3 TV and TV logo or titles are on the bottom or top of the picture. If TV is set to project wide screen, these logos or writings will be cut off.
If you have an option to switch TV resolution from remount, you will see whole picture.
Check your TV manual for settings.

What setting do i need to have my tv on for a game system? Panasonic viera plasma tv. I believe it is a 40"


There is no specific setting that is "required" to be on for a game system, there is a built in mode label game mode, Press the aspect button on the remote, this mode make the picture a bit darker, which will keep any type of static logo from retaining on the screen, if image retention occurs, the logo will fade over time, would have to be stationary on the screen for a few weeks to become permanent.

Picture too big


It seems as if your tv is in "crop", "Zoom", or "full" mode. Select letterbox, normal, or full-screen mode. Look in the manual for exact instructions.

Dear RyanVa21;
Try changing the picture size with your set's remote, press the aspect ratio button. The remote must be the original Panasonic remote.
Please let me know if that did it.
