Question about Panasonic TH-42PX60U Television

1 Answer

Tv took a hit, now no picture!

My TV fell over hitting the top edge of the plastic border on the arm of a love seat. The impact was not that bad as I caught it part of the way down. The glass screen was not hit and in good condition. Now the TV has no picture, just a flickering of green on the left side, and a slight buzzing sound. There is audio. What could have broken after such a hit, because I would like to repair it myself if possible?

    I was able to obtain a copy of the Service Manual, and checked the led's on 2 of the many circuit boards. According to the manual, the boards are functioning properly. The buzzing sound was through out the entire backside of the TV, possibly indicating the plasma screen has been damaged. I also twisted the screen slightly by hand eliminating the buzzing sound, but also eliminated the flickering. I spoke with the local Panasonic repair shop, and they informed me that a panel would cost more than a new TV. At $575.00 for a new TV, they are correct.

Camera lens is chipped on the outside edge

If you can get the lens fixed or replaced under warranty, you should do that while you can. Otherwise, a small chip should not impact the quality of pictures you get so long as it's on the edge. I've seen many inexpensive lenses that had many chips around the edge and still took decent pictures.

Tv hit by tennis ball and now there is sound but no picture. Can it be fixed?

If it hit the screen unit and the display panel is bad, it could show not not show a crack but be toast inside, the part would cost more than a new set.

It does not take much of a impact to cause damage to the display panel.

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.
