Question about Panasonic TH-42PD50U 42 in. Plasma EDTV

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.

    Yeah, same thing happening to me now. Screen goes dead with no warning and the power light blinks 4 times (and sometimes blinks only 2 times). Requires me to unplug it from the wall for at least 5 minutes before I can turn it back on and then might only last 20 mins.

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.

Blinking powerlamp is indicating that the power supply is in shut down/restart due to short circuits, these DELL are known to have failed transistors in the inverter circuits due to poor solder joints. See example of here:

Battery - blinknig range light


The orange blinking led indicates battery charge critically low, which could mean the battery is failing. The batteries are considered a consumable item and carry a 1 year warranty. Average life, depends mostly on usage. 300 to 500 discharge/recharge cycles is about average that translates to about 18 months use or so.

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
