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

1 Answer

Panasonic TH-42PX80U won't turn on.

The TV is brand new out of the box. After it is plugged in I hear a click then a few seconds later another click but when I turn the TV on it clicks again but the only thing that happens is a red light on the front panel blinks twice repetedly. No sound, no picture. The red light does not stop unless the TV is unplugged. If you plug it back in the red light stays off until you try to turn on the TV, then the same light starts blinking again.

    Thanks,

    I measured the voltage directly out of the cable supplied with the TV at 122.6 v ac. I will call Panasonic. Thanks again for your extremely quick response.

You are missing 15volts. If this is a new TV, it could be as simple as a plug not fully seated on the power supply. Regardless, the repair should be covered by warranty and Panasonic is one of the best when it comes to taking care of the customer. Ifd nI can be of further assistance, let me know

My panasonic viera lcd, model no. th-42px80u, flashes green when powered up, then a sequence of 10 red flashes. whats the problem ? joe


Before spend $$ on replacement boards, make sure anything attached to it is powered off. Unplug TV for 5mn to 15min. Plug back in and it should power on. If not leave unplugged overnight before spending on a replacement board. We have to do this 2-3 times per year when someone forgets to turn off auxiliary components (receiver, DVD, cable box, etc) first. It has always come back on.

Green and black screen when I use turn Direct TV box


Try changing the input device to something you are sure, works such as a DVD player.

Switch off TV manually, switch off power, remove plug and retry after 48 hours.

If problem persists, please refer it to a qualified service technician.

HDMI inputs are not working


As crcelect suggests you can run the TV on RCA. You should also be able to use coax directly from your cable box. If you don't have cable you can use an rf converter to connect coax.
I have exactly the same problem with my Panasonic TH-42PX75U. I've been told that I may need to run a setup on my cable box to fix the problem. If I find a solution I'll provide details in a future post.

You won't believe this. I went over the whole copy of your TV manual. And for this problem, it says " consult your local dealer".
Here are the toll free numbers from the manual.
