Question about Panasonic TH-50PX60U 50 in. Plasma HDTV

1 Answer

TV Won't Turn On

I've had the set for about 2 months, with no problems, and today I tried to turn it on and all I got was a red blinking light. I unplugged it and replugged it in, then tried to turn it back on. I heard it sound as if it was 'trying' to turn on and the screen got slightly brighter before it got dark again and the light returned to blinking. Any help would be appreciated, the manual is useless!

Re: TV Won't Turn On

My phillips 42" is the same way. Just started popping up the settings menu the other day and wouldn't stop popping up until I downloaded the software upgrade from the Phillips web site. But now, two days later it won't do anything but give that same annoying red blinking light. The customer service says to take it to an authorized repair center. sounds like they have a ton of these calls everyday. The solution is to buy it from Costco, and make sure you return it and get a new one before their return policy expires.

My lg 42ln5300 tv has the red indicator light on but when i try to turn it on blinks and it won't turn on

These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes).From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it.This will make repair easy.These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times.Count it carefully.If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here.It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.
Blinking codes details to many popular brand TVs are given.Surf the site with patience.If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.

Heard a pop , bulb blew out , replaced bulb , it worked for two days , now red light blinks three times pauses then three times and so on , tv won't turn off light won't turn off unless I unplug...

3 blinks indicates lamp door is not on or has not been reinstalled properly. This also could mean the lamp door switch has failed itself. Try removing the lamp door and putting back on, if that doesnt correct the problem then I recommend having the switch replaced.

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!
