My Panasonic TH-42PX60U fell over while installing a new component to the rear. It hit the edge of a wooden arm of the love seat. I did catch it part way so the impact was not that bad, however there is a small dent on the very top silver plastic border, and the glass screen did not hit. Now the TV will power up, but no picture, and hear a slight buzzing sound. There is some green flickering on the left side of the panel, and I do have audio. What part could have broken after such a hit, because Panasonic does sell their parts. Thanks.

Re: TV fell over, took a hit on top, no picture
Sorry to hear this happened but you most likley you craked the panel.The only other thing I can reccomend is to remove the back cover and inspect for arch marks on the inside of the cover.If I`m not mistaken that is a metal cover, and i could be arching to one of the internal heatsinks.

Are the lines completely through the screen or just the upper or lower part of the screen? If through the whole picture, lines in the picture of a plasma can be caused by a defective Main Logic Control board or a bad plasma panel. The panel, if available would be very expensive (cheaper to buy a new TV). If the lines are just on the upper or lower part of the screen then it is the upper or lower scan drive board. Here is a list of the parts for your TV.
It depends on what type of Video connector you have with the Xbox, if you have Yellow white and red then it would go into the video input and put your TV in Video mode., If you have Blue red and green, it is use for component input, and you put your TV in component mode,,(HD)
On a Panasonic TV the 10-blink error code can sometimes be caused by low voltage running through an HDMI cable, particularly from a Media PC or some video game consoles. Try disconnecting any HDMI cables and unplugging the Television for 30 seconds, then power it on without the cables attached.
If this works, connect the cables to the front panel (usually HDMI-3) which uses a different controller board.
i posted this exact same problem and some wiz said that i broke the panel. now the warranty is voided and the only way to fix it is to purchase another panel which could cost the same if not more than the original, so your probably better off buying a new hdtv than trying to fix this one.
First of all connect the Direct TV box to HDMI 2 and see if it works there. If it does then the next step is to connect the DVD player to HDMI and see if it wors there. If not then connect the DVD player to the TV using the component inputs and if the DVD player works on those. If it does then maybe the HDMI interface in the DVD player no longer works as it needs to communicate with the TV.
I had a similar problem where my TH-42PX60 would turn on but all controls were disabled. I could not change channel, input, volume or anything other than turning the TV on and off. I called customer support and they directed me to this site: http://www.pasctraining.panasonic.com/specialapplications/productfirmwaredownloads/downloads1.asp to download a firmware update onto an SD Card. I inserted the SD card into the slot in my TV and powered it on. The update took about 3 minutes and I haven't had a problem since.
This is a link to the instructions to install the update:
