Panasonic Flat Screen TV turns off by itself

I recently changed the blown fuse of our Panasonic flat screen which is more than 5 years old already. It turned on but after 10 minutes is just turns off by itself. I kept on unplugging the cord as suggested, but again, after another 10 minutes it turns off again. Can please anybody help since I am not a technical savvy. Thanks!

Re: Panasonic Flat Screen TV turns off by itself

I was given a 42 in panasonic because it had this problem. I took it home and plugged it in and pushed the power on button. before it could come completely on I pushed the power off button. I did this 3 times and then turned it on and TV worked fine. This made my friend sick since he just bought a new one. I offered it back but he said keep it. :)

Re: Panasonic Flat Screen TV turns off by itself

If your unit was blowing fuses you must have had an overload somewhere. Your post is not clear. Does your unit run ten minutes after unplugging and replugging it? If it does then there is still a partial short in it somewhere which causes it to shut down for protection. It could be anywhere. Some detail on what happened prior to the fuse blowing would be helpful for diagnosis. You do not sound like you would have the expertise to troubleshoot this unit. I doubt there could be much wrong with it and the cost should be minimal. Find a reputable repair shop to handle the repair. Good luck.

What is the solution to the blinking green light and welcome screen then tv shuts itself off

I recently had this problem on my model as well, though it was lessthan a year old. The method that worked for me is to update thefirmware of the TV itself; you can download the new software, with complete instructions on how to update your TV at
After doing this, my set started working again.
Do not replace your lamp. the light will blink red for a bad lamp, not green.

Was watching my vizio and i heard a pop and the screen went blank, but there still is sound, its about 4 years old can it be fixed and ballpark on how much it would cost to fix!

Main Power Supply issue! The repair would cost you more than what a new flat panel would cost you. Vizio is a Chinese made TV. Only lasting 3.5 to 4 years. Go out and buy yourself a new Christmas gift a new flat screen TV. Try to get a name brand one like Sony, Samsung or Panasonic. They have great service records. Vizio is your typical breaks, throw it away.

My Samsung 50" DLP flat screen tv has no picture or sound

Check the bulb to see if it is blown if you had the TV more than 3 years It's best to change it. Even if it does not look blown it still can be no good.

Mitsubishi WS-55819 power issue

No, that'll do it. Once you've changed em you'll know right away if somethin isn't right. But take faith and fire that puppy up. If the pix is good you did good. If something is amiss. I'd be happy to walk you through it. My money is on you though.

I have a flat screen TV from Panasonic and the sound is not working. (i've had the TV for 6 months)

Sometimes in the on screen menu there is an option to turn speakers on or off, check to see if they are on.

Power button Flashes, tv doesn't turn on

Buy a new one , not worth fixing. I have the same tv, with the same problem . It's getting old now and the price of a new one . It might cost $ 400-500 big ones to fix it . Thats half the price of a new flat screen , cheap model mind you . But I still think it's not worth it .

Panasonic 36 inch flat screen tv 6 years old (model unknown) just stopped turning on. Act as if it is unplugged. Could it just be the fuse? If so, where is it located and how do i replace?

Fuse sounds right.  Had a Toshiba 32" that did the same thing.  Had to have a repair man come out.  $150 charge all told.  Worth it, because a new TV would be a lot more.  Unless you are some kind of electronics wizard, you don't want to take that thing apart.  They are very delicate-looking inside (and really cheap-looking, actually!).

Failed Power Supply

It would seem that a surge protector power strip would also fix your problem.
