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.

Make sure that your input source cables are firmly secured. It almost sounds like a bad input connection that slips over time.

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:
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:
The standby power supply section is at the bottom left of the picture.

Please read my guide for more details:

Capacitors kit: he can make you a set of caps.
Or, just make sure to use caps with low ESR, 105c, high ripple current and long life rating such as PANASONIC FM or FC series.
Please post back what you find.
