Question about Sanyo DP50749 50 in. Plasma TV
I am currently attempting the "unplug tv for 30 minute" technique and see if I can factory reset it.
a 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.
best thing about this new service is that you are never placed on hold and get to talk to real repairmen in the US.
the service is completely free and covers almost anything you can think of (from cars to computers, handyman, and even drones).
click here to download the app (for users in the US for now) and get all the help you need.

SOURCE: tv not responding to remote
This may sound silly but does the remote have a funtion button or buttons at the top of the remote? It may be set to operate a DVD or VCR instead of the TV.
Failing that check the batteries, it is very rate that your TV will stop accepting IR signals.
Hope this helps,

No, I'm sorry, but the technology to fix the actual lcd SCREEN is not out there yet. The reason you don't see it when it is off is because it is actually the inside of the screen that break, unlike plasma tv's, when they break there will be actual glass fragments. If the broken area is to big to deal with, then the options are; buying and installing a new screen (alway about the same price off the tv new, or more), you could sell the insides of the tv on Ebay for example, they are very much needed parts (powerboard etc)....Those are about the only options, unfortunatly...If selling the powerboard, you shopuld be able to get around$100 for it...
Once again, I'm sorry I didn't have good news, but please rate if it was usefull, thank you!

For what it's worth, you can download the official
Sanyo repair manual for this TV (DP42746) at http://www.eserviceinfo.com/downloadsm/43343/sanyo_dp42746.html.
I uploaded it here when I had some issues with this TV last year.
The solution almost always seems to be to replace the Power
Board and the Upper and Lower Y Buffers. The parts and costs (from Sanyo in
July 2009) are listed below (NOTE: Sanyo will not ship these parts to anyone but
a repair shop):
1. V4 Y-Main (Y-Sustain) Circuit Board (Part # LJ92-01200A, Alt Part # LJ41-02759A) - USD $139.00
2. Upper Y-Buffer Circuit Board (Part # LJ92-01202A, Alt Part # LJ41-02760) - USD $64.00
3. Lower Y-Buffer Circuit Board (Part # LJ92-01203A, Alt Part # LJ41-02761A) - USD $64.00
Sanyo charges USD $10.50 for shipping, which brings the total cost for parts to USD $277.50. From my research, a shop would probably charge between USD $500 and $700 to do this repair. FYI - there is a class action lawsuit pending against Sanyo for this issue. The V4 Y-Main (Y-Sustain) Circuit Boards fail VERY frequently in this TV due to overheating. Hope this helps.
