The problem lies in the X-Drive boards or the TCPs (tape carrier packages) and they are not serviceable. Once faulty the X-Drive boards must be replaced. The worst scenario is a bad TCP because it indicates a bad panel and you have to replace the panel.The X-Drive boards deliver color information to the vertical grids of the panel through the TCPs. That's why when a fault occurs in the TCPs, vertical black bars appear on the screen and an a much larger part when an X-Board fails. Your TV uses three of these boards, one each driving the right, center and left portion of the plasma panel. The left X-Board has eight TCPs and seven to each of the right and center X-Boards. In your case, the vertical grids driven by the center X-Board is dead but you can't tell the board has failed, It is due to the fact that both the right and left boards are okay but only two TCPs are good on each of them. Meaning there are six bad TCPs on the left board and five on the right. Remember a bad TCP indicates a bad panel and you have at least eleven bad TCPs. The only solution here is buy a new panel or probably a salvaged one auctioned on ebay or have your set or its parts auctioned on ebay then buy a new plasma TV.

The problem is from the menu control board inside the TV. A Ic or transistor might be faulty on the board.

Take care.

I had a similar problem with my 42 in Philips LCD HDTV.

Here was the problem. My Power Supply Board had several bad capacitors. I opened my TV (warranty was expired of course) and found four bulged capacitors on the PSB. Many major electronics companies Philips/Magnavox, Sony, Panasonic, and others were sold capacitors that failed in 2-5 years instead of 10-20. The capacitors fail prematurely due to a lack of preservatives. Unfortunately, they were installed in all sorts of devices and cause a wide range of failure problems.

Here are some options for you.

1. Have it fixed by a professional $$$$$$$??????? (Is it under warranty?)

2. Open your TV and find PSB. (The board that the power cord plugs into) Check for faulty caps. If you find some (bulged or leaking) bad caps replace the entire board. The entire board costs around $250 right now because they are in high demand right now. They can be found at but supplies are limited. I would definitely shop around though.

3. Remove and then replace individual faulty caps. This takes some soldering skill.

Caps are inexpensive and if you can take care of it yourself it will save you hundreds.

This may be your problem. If you determine that it might be.

I have a Tip/How TO tutorial on this site that may also help. It gives step by step instructions for replacing caps on PSB #715t2432-2. If this is your board you are in luck. Here is the Link: Fixing the Philips Turns/shuts off on its own problem. I'm working on uploading pictures to help guide people though the process as well. Let me know if I can do anything to help.

Hope this helps and if it does please rate it accordingly. Good luck.

Does the 50 inch Sanyo Plasma model #50747 have a reset button if it does where can we find it?

I dont believe there are any reset buttons . but the easiest thing to do is unplug the tv from the wall and any other device. for about a half hour this will reset the tv. if you plug it in and it still does it then it needs repair.

I have no picture but i have sound any suggestions

Replace 6870QZE013C or 6871QYH053A (more likely).

The second is the Y-Sustain board, located to the left of your TV when looking from the back.

This is the one that usually burns and the fuse on it is likely shorted. Do not replace it, it will burn again.

Panasonic 50 inch Plasma

it could have over heated you can try to reset it first unplug it for about five minutes and try to turn it on if that dont work the remote might have a set button try holding that down until the red light flashes twice, then turn it on if not then hold the power button down on the set for a good five seconds to see if that resets it. if none of that works you will have to go to panasonic .com for the reset instructions.with the red light blinking the power supply is most likely good you just need to reset i.
