Your tv has a faulty power supply board also called SOS-P board. Take of the back panel and look for any obvious defects. Start by checking the capacitors for cracked/swollen/leaky capacitors. If the tops of the capacitors are not flat then it indicates that the components are faulty. If you find any you should replace them with exactly the same values. Ex: 40v,1000mF
If you don't find any a component level repair might still be possible so if you are skilled in electronics and know how to use a meter you can start by downloading a service manual. Unfortunately I don't have one for this model but you can download it from the link below
Once you have it post back and I will help you troubleshoot this issue.

The TV may have gone into shutdown mode because it may have sensed overvoltage or overcurrent due to short circuits.
You will have to open it up do some inspection inside the TV.
If you are going to DIY and have proper tools and know safety precaution then please read on:

Try unplugging it completely for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Plug it back in. If it still won't come on, it's likely taken a power surge and popped a fuse or power supply, which means a trip to the service center.

SOURCE: I have a 50" panasonic tv model num TC-P50X5. it wont power up.My question is this ; where are the fuses and how will i know if its the power board?

Look closely at the board. Look for burnt or charred area's on it. With mine, if found the capacitors damaged. they are the little battery type looking pieces with the 3 scored-in dividers on the silver top. Yours look like they are black with silver top. I can't quite tell from this picture but it kind of looks like the one that stands alone may be damaged? Look to see if each one still has a flat top, with the lines/scores still in tact. What happens if one goes bad is that they will "mushroom" out at the top and often show black soot like dust on them. I found it was much easier to replace the board, then to try to add new capacitors. That's just too tedious and I did not have the tools for it. Good Luck! Have a great day!

SOURCE: my Panasonic tc-p50x5 plasma tv will not come on after a power outage. Dose It need a new power supply?

First of all this is a plasma television and they are obsolete. The parts are very hard to get. Second, it is highly unusual that it could come back on after a few days. Third is the power outage, if it was caused by a surge then there are parts that are toast.

Wait a few days and see. There are some panny's that will not work for a few days when you have a power interruption, and it takes a while for them to come back on. If nada, then check the PS for voltages.

My panasonic tc-p50x5 will not come on after power outage. whats wrong?

Being in the field of electronics I can not stress this enough....POWER SURGE PROTECTION...and I am not talking about a power strip with "surge protection"...they are useless. That being said you had a surge that most likely blew out your main power board. There is a fuse on that board and if you are lucky that popped and it is an easy fix. If not, you will have to remove the board, get the numbers on it and search out a replacement. There are plenty of places online to get them but I use Allied Electronics. One thing to check while you have the tv apart is to check all boards for visible burn marks or damage from the surge.

I have a 50" panasonic plasma tv. Model# TC-P50x5. I had unplugged it and went to plug it back in and the tv will not come back on. There is no red light on the tv or remote. Can someone help me please.

power supply module is known to go bad on flat TV's, if you change it make sure you buy the upgraded model, because same model could go bad soon again. but I would check power to wall outlet as first option. and power cord as second.

Won't come on after power outage

hi is it totally dead if so it's possible the fuse inside could have blown, this will be on the power board, glass type, if it has and you replace it and blows again then there's a dead short on the power board or on main board hope it helps

Panasonic tcp50x5 will not come on

Try disconnecting all HDMI cables and plugging the TV into a new wall outlet. If the issue is resolved, it may have been caused by a small power surge from either your wall outlet or one of your source devices
