Question about Panasonic VIERA TH-65PV500 65 in. Plasma Television
Please can you help. I am in Australia so I don't know if our TV set up is the same as yours. The actual product is a Panasonic Plasma TV VIERA TH-50PX70A, your list doesn't recognise this model. Anyway the problem is this.
We were watching a film on Foxtel (equivalent to SKY etc) and the TV turned itself off and could not be turned back on again. It seem to go into Standby mode. The red light on the TV near the on button flashes on and off when you push the remote control on/off button. When you turn the TV off at the main switch and then push it on again, the TV clicks like it is going to come on the light goes green, then immediately goes red and the TV doesn't do anything. No picture, No sound.
We have only had this for a couple of weeks and the manual doesn't give any idea as to what the problem could be or how to solve it.
Thank you for your help, regards Tracey.
Tracy it sounds like a power supply problem, not anything you have done.This day and age the new electronics are only built for min running requirement, as in the working capacity of the power supply.Not like a few years ago when things where built to last and some still do.
It has a standby mode thats why most things have a led to show you if its on or off.This only come about for some reasons and that was to keep the old Tube Type Teleivision warm so you have instant picture, if you have turned this type of teleivision off at the wall it would take a few minutes to get a lets say a stable picture.
Enough of showing my age.
But this means the the powersupply is only in sleep mode only and uses bare min, to run and when you push the power on button you have life and then your picture.
Try this if and when it comes on and stays on, then it goes off on you, turn it off from at the wall and leave it for 5-10 min and try again, if it comes alive its a heat problem in the supply and maybe a dry joint which needs to be looked at.
If it does not try turning off and on at the set not at the remote, it could be the remote section is not working properly and have the same sort of fault. If you think it could be in the set up, try your sleep mode set up, it could be turned on, so check if the TV goes off at the same time say 5 min's everytime??
If it's the first fault you will have to get it back under warranty very quickly, these are inherent problems, companies want the dollar and not so much the quaility you get....
I hope I have helped???
P.s. if its the type where you have a power lead that plugs into the set and the wall Check that too, I have fixed many of things because the moulded lead has let the pins inside them open up..
Think basic first ok!
