42" Plasma TV Problem

Our Panasonic Viera tv won't turn on. We have unplugged it over night. It was working fine and then after having the tv for 24 hrs it just shut itself off and when we try to turn it on it comes on with a set up menu and whatever channel the cable is set to and stays on for about a second and then the screen goes black and the power button flashes red. We have tried holding the power button down for a couple of seconds and that doesn't help either. Any other help would be wonderful!!!

    I have a 50" Viera that is three weeks old that won't turn on at all. The red led does not light on the front power switch. It worked fine in the evening and would not turn on in the AM.

    Panasonic Cinema vision PT-51HX42F Similar; powers on but when the tv is about to show the picture it shuts of and the power button blinks red periodically. I tried holding the power button down for a minute or so. Nothing. I can't find any trouble shooting info on this. One repair person said it was probably some unit that will cost me $300 - $500 to fix. I guess Iwill have to call him back. Help!

    I have 42 inch panasonic (TH-42PZ700U) that is doing the same thing. It clicks on for second then shuts down and the red light blinks 7 times. How come so many panasonic owners have this same problem but no one seems to have the answer to the problem?

    It automatically turns off and it takes almost 8 hours for it to turn on again without those flashing red lights!

    It would seem that there is an issue with the panasonic vieras - I suggest that we all get together and sue the company - they obviously have an inferior product if everyone is suffering from the same problem. Why are they not recalling the product?

    The people who have had this repaired - was it covered in a warranty?

    please respond

    I also have the same problem. Red light flashing and all the rest...only had it for about 4 months. Very disappointing - thought Panasonic was a good brand.

Same frustrating symptoms on brand new 42inch here! tv just turns itself off sometimes without warning or if changing to certain channels. leaves red light flashing for a while then red light goes away. any attempts with remote gives flashing green liht on tv. manual power off and on restarts tv but auto off again. found while manual power on keep changing channel on remote till stable picture appears. then use remote to shut down tv - solid red light indicates standby mode. then use remote to turn on again... till next time it happens. but what is technical fault??

Possible bad fan or power board Is the red light flashing continuously or is there a code?

Posted on Aug 19, 2007

The problem for 7 blinks is an Interface42 board. Had mine fixed yesterday. Apparently there is a glitch in the interface board that sends signals to the television. Basically the glitch shorts out the board and the t.v wont turn on and you will see the power light blink 7 times pause then 7 more. They replaced the board with a new one and updated the software1.gif on the new interface board. It works like new and i couldn't be happier to be watching it again. Hope this helps everyone else out.

My Panasonic viera tv will turn on and off but no other buttons work On the remote or on the tv itself


Try unplugging power cord for 10 sec. or for over night. That might be the trick. I did the same trick on a satillite receiver and a DVD player that got stuck like your tv is doing and it worked, doesn't hurt anything to do so. Hope this helps.

It's called Cyan and it's sound like you are having a problem on your D-board. Look for capacitors bulging out and replace first if not then order D-board

Why does my volume on my Panasonic viera plasma TV go up to 24 when I turn it on


Because it is set to do so. Go into the analogue menu and set the sound to a lower level and store it. That should sort that out.

Tv wont turn on< red power light just keeps blinking?


I have the same thing. Just started blinking 10 times. Pretty much had to unplug the unit over night. Could never turn it off and then turn it on again.
This worked for about a week. This morning, tried to turn it on after being unplugged. Still blinks.
Called Panasonic. they attempted a couple solutions, nothing. Suggested authorized repair shop.
