I contacted Panasonic about the "PLEASE WAIT" on display and after a few attempts to fix I was told that it would cost $130 minimum to repair.Then I found you guys and found I had the same problem that RandyChev described "PLEASE WAIT" on display. I followed his very precise and informative directions and found that I also had two bad (bulging) caps, C1270 & C1271 Thanks to the pictures he posted, I replaced them with no problems. I then was able to power it back up and all of my information was still on my hard drive, even the correct time in the display. The only thing that I have that I don't know what it means is with the unit on the display has R68:33 on it. I have Cox cable and they discontinued the TVGOS so I know I won't get TV Guide, is that what the R68:33 is about??
The problem ( the display has R68:33 on it) turned out to be what I had suspected, the TVGOS could not find a signal. The error code went away when the DVR had searched for the signal even though it could not find one. Cox cable discontinued the TVGOS signal so I don't get TV Guide, that is the way it is.

It sounds that there is some loose contacts to some connections to your Plasma display.

hpwhite & RandyChev described "PLEASE WAIT" on display. I followed their very precise and informative directions and found that I also had two bad (bulging) caps, C1270 & C1271 Thanks to the pictures he posted, I was able to find replacement 1000uf 35v Radio Shack #272-1032 capacitors and replaced them with no problems. I then was able to power it back up and all of my information was still on my hard drive, even the correct time in the display.
