Question about Panasonic Viera TH-42PZ80U Plasma TV

1 Answer

TV powers up initially, but shuts down within seconds.

TV powers up, but within seconds shuts down, and the red light that signals "power on" blinks every few seconds. The picture never returns. Does this every time I try to power up. Any advice?

    Panasonic viera plasma. Model #TH-42PZ80U.

    Is this sufficient?

    When the power light is blinking, it blinks in a pattern. Between each blink will be a short pause. When the cycle of blinks completes, the last blink will be followed by a much longer (and noticeable) pause. Count the number of blinks and re-post. It is critical to solving.

These TV's are somewhat sensitive to internal heat. It appears your sensor has triggered an overheat. This doesnt mean you still have the heat issue, it just saying it needs to be replaced or reset, either way it is not something you can do in your home. Taking it to your local authorized shop will ensure proper repairs, about $90 worth.

I have a 32PFL5332D and when power turned on red light flashes 6 times then stops blinking for 3 seconds and starts again over and over. TV never powers up


Im afraid the set is probably in an over current protection mode wherebye it shuts down to protect itself as one aaea of the tv is drawing excess current, the pattern of flashes will have a code which would guide a techie to problem area, im afraid you will need an engineer visit,sorry George

PS3 won't power up.


Hi,
THis issue is a motherboard issue, sort of like the 3 red lights on the Xbox 360.  It will need to be repaired.  If it is under warranty then send it to Sony, otherwise we fix this issue in my repair shop, just go to joegoods.com

I suggest doing a google search using the tv model # and brand.
I have learned myself that different big screen tvs seem to each have their own common problems. I have read before of power supply issues that cause what your describing.

Refer to owners manual ! Blinking indicates the type of fault that is occuring on all your tv sets. example : power light on red - indicator light beside it green but blinks rapidly for half a second rapidly then shuts off. This refers to a faulty lamp or a lamp that is near its expiration. Read your manuals if indicators refer to easy repair sweet, but if it says call tech then bummer...
