Hello,

There is one thing that we can try. With the remote, adjust the brightness of the screen. If there isn't an option to do so, check for a hard button on the TV. If you either cannot do this or it doesn't work, I suggest you contact the store you bought it from, the manufacturer, or a repair shop.

Can I manual convert my TC-26LX85 from NTSC to PAL from time to time?


Hello fabulouspr,
You would need NTSC to PAL video digital converter box. Check your electronic stores that sells TV's, if not search for these online to purchase. Good luck.

My TC-26LX85 clicked a few times when I plugged it back in now there's no stanby light or power at all. All the caps look good no solder breaks no bulges on anything


First, the service manual that you will need for troubleshooting: http://elektrotanya.com/?q=showresult&megnev=PANASONIC&megnev2=TC-26LX85&kategoria=&kat2=all
If the standby light is not on it may mean that the 5vdc tsandby power supply section is dead or the 5vdc standby is OK but the main board is not working (LED's are driven by the main board).
You need to find out if the 5vdc standby power supply is working or not first. Bad caps can look normal but can have high ESR, but not likely to be bad caps in PANASONIC because PANASONIC makes good quality caps that I use for repair.

Pictures of the Power supply: http://assets.shopjimmy.com/media/catalog/product/cache/1/image/5e06319eda06f020e43594a9c230972d/s/j/sjtxnp10ngcs.jpg
The standby power supply section is at the bottom left of the picture.

So what's different? The TV. Anything else like the video type (s-video, composite, component)?

Perhaps if you described what cable is carrying video and the point-to-point connection to the TC-L42D2 we'd understand what isn't working.

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Unfortunately, size limitation of what could be attached prevents posting a connection diagram. Still, proposed connection scheme:
  • 4250HDC's HDMI to Panasonic's HDMI 1 or 2;
  • 4250HDC's VIDEO OUT to GoVideo's LINE IN 1 VIDEO;
  • 4250HDC's AUDIO OUT to 2 pcs of RCA Splitters (shown below);
  • 1 pair from the 2 splitters to GoVideo's LINE IN 1 R-AUDIO-L;
  • the other pair to Yamaha's LD/TV L & R;
  • GoVideo's LINE OUT VIDEO to Panasonic's VIDEO IN 1 VIDEO;
  • GoVideo's LINE OUT R-AUDIO-L to 2 more RCA Splitters;
  • 1 pair from the 2 splitters to Panasonic's VIDEO IN 1 L-AUDIO-R;
  • the other pair to Yamaha's VCR 1 IN L & R;
  • to watch cable TV in HD quality, set Panasonic to HDMI 1 or 2 by pressing Panasonic remote's INPUT button, then 3 (or 4), then OK;
  • to hear cable TV programs on Yamaha's speakers, set Yamaha to LD/TV;
  • to watch DVD or VHS, set Panasonic to Video 1 by pressing Panasonic remote's INPUT button, then 6, then OK;
  • to hear DVD or VHS on Yamaha's speakers, set Yamaha to VCR 1;
  • to record cable TV programs, press GoVideo remote's TV VIEW button a couple of times to cycle through the signal sources or until Line 1 is displayed.

The use of the splitter shown below would effectively double the AUDIO OUT of the cable box and the DVD/VCR combo to feed both the TV and the stereo. Additionally, this would allow use of the cable box and/or the DVD/VCR combo with or without the Yamaha.
