TH-42PA50A - power supply problem

The unit is 18 months old and has worked perectly until now. The system powers itself down leaving the power light blinking slowly. After a re-cycle of the power switch it (usually) comes back on. It can remain on for anything between 5 minutes to 20 mins. before repeating the power down. Is this possibly due to power fluctuation? It only seems to happen at nighttime. Are Panasonic power supplies super-sensitive?? All other systems on the same power circuit continue to work flawlessly.

Hi I have a panasonic viera TH-42PA50A blinking red light and it just keeps blinking any ideas what it could be

it is not a good sign. If the tv screen is dark (no picture) and no sound but the standby red light is continuously blinking then it could mean the power supply board in tv is faulty.

Usually a few burnt out capacitors on the board but hard to replace yourself unless you are experienced in this sort of work. From the model it appears a reasonably recent unit and you may want to get it checked out by a repairer at least to get an estimate of the cost.
See this site to get some idea of the part costs.

Samsung tv wont turn on

Check with Samsung first, most of their TVs and monitors come with a 3 year warranty and if you open the unit it will void the warranty.

Tv wont turn on, red led flashes 10 times

If this is NOT projection, then the power supply is burnt out. If it is projection, then either high voltage transformer, flyback, or power supply is at fault

(panasonic TH-42PZ77U plasma) the tv will power on but before the picture comes up it powers back off. Red power light is flashing.

in protective mode the tv does not turn on and light is blinking, typically we must proceed by elimination as some faulty sections are preventing the tv to switch on. unplug the output power connectors from the power supply until the latter stop clicking. if it is still clicking after every of the output rail have been disconnected, then the power supply itself is faulty.

hope this helps!

Remotes no longer work

I had this exact same problem. After a week or so it started responding to the remote control again. Then after a couple of days it stopped responding. This problem came and went for about a month, then one day the entire TV went dead. When I powered it on, the green light appeared for 2 seconds followed by a sequence of 6 flashing red lights that repeated. I brought my set in to a repair shop and they replaced the power supply board. That fixed the problem and now the TV powers up and responds to the remote control again. Total charge was $250. That was very disappointing for a $1,500 TV that was only 18 months old. I'm going to let Philips know how disappointed I am in their product!

Won't Turn On....Immediately Switches To Standby

Did you get your tv fixed? It may be the Sub power supply unit. If the main supply went out it would not light the display at all. Yes it is time for th repair shop. Good Luck.
