If the sound isn't coming the speakers then its cabinet expansion. Specifically between the panel and the front cabinet.
I believe Panasonic has a fix for this.

The picture freezes

It sounds that the main digital processor board has the fault. Normally this board has no repair other than replacement. After replacement, it will be necessary to update the firmware too. Contact any service technician, and make sure about the fault. If you're sound in electronics, check the link given here. It might help you. Pull up older posts there by its left sidebar.

Occasionally no picture with 42' Panasonic Plasma

It sounds like the cable modem is flaky. Have you called the local cable company to report the problem. This should be a no-cost solution.

42 inch LG Plasma TV - Lost picture

Most likely what happened is one of the capacitors went bad. When a capacitors goes bad it produces a popping sound. This could be an easy and cheap fix if you find the bad capacitor or capacitors. The bad capacitor will have a bulging top most likely on the power board but could be anywhere.

42 inch LG Plasma TV - Lost picture

Our LG 50" plasma tv screen went black after a popping noise but still had sound, after great diliberations decided to take the back off and have a peek!
We unplugged the tv and tested the fuses (there were three we could see) one had blown, the one on the left as you look at the back of the tv it also has one above it. We wrote the code/seriel number down and took the fuse to the electrical wholesalers Maplin and bought a pack of 10 fuses for £1.29 replaced the fuse in the tv and everything now fine!!!!!!
Hope this might be of use to anyone whose lost the picture after a loud popping/snacking noise but still has sound.
