    What are you trying to display? Cable, Sat, PC? Change the aspect of the TV to Vivid or Zoom, if the set still will not display check the settings of the input device.

This is actually(And Sadly) an extremely common problem with the Vieras. The number of times it blinks is a fault code. 7 and 10 blinks are typically board failures inside of the unit usually being the power supply. It can be other things like a clogged fan freaking it out etc. If you search google you will see many cases of this problem and what each # of blinking lights indicates.

Things you can try at home are:

Unplug the unit for 20ish minutes. Sometimes this brings it back.
Did you install something else on the circuit? If you put for example a window air conditioner in place or something that is drawing alot of power it will not let the TV itself have enough power to run.

Sometimes if you are handy and have some soldering skill and skill using a multimeter you can check the capacitors and other components in the rectifying and filtering stages of the power board and replace them if they are bad for cheap. Capacitors would be the easy one to spot because they swell and look terrible when they go out. DON'T DO THIS IF YOU DON'T KNOW HOW TO WORK ON ELECTRONICS. OR DON'T FEEL COMFORTABLE. THERE ARE SOME DANGERS INVOLVED.
Otherwise if you have 7 or 10 blinks at a time it will need service.

SOURCE: Panasonic viera tc-p65vt50, lite blinks 12 times and then starts over.

These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
Blinking codes details to many popular brand TVs are given. Surf the site with patience.
If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.

How do I connect my computer to the Panasonic Viera TC-37LZZ85 so that the TV becomes my computer's viewing screen?


Presume your TV doesn't have a VGA input,
Does it have a HDMI input? So, if your computer has a HDMI output, you can watch your screen connecting HDMI
There is no other way. with a standard computer and TV.
Early personal computers had an audio/video output. I don't know if there is any similar video card currently.

Tc-p50u50 cracked screen


It is not worth it to replace the screen. I found that everyone recommends scrapping tv or finding another broken tv and using that screen.

I cant connect to the internet I have the cable going directly into the TV and I still cant connect to the TV can someone tell my why?


It is sad to say that Panasonic - 50" Model: TC-P50U50

lacks the ability to connect to internet.

It should have an Ethernet port.

I have a panasonic TC-P50ST30 and viera link will not work with my charter HD DVR cable box. I have a HDMI cable connecting them.What can I do?


Unfortunately, your charter HD DVR cable box is not a Viera link device that is compatible with the TC-P50ST30. Viera Link only works to control Panasonic HDAVI devices that are Viera Link ready (and that use the same Viera link coding) when using the HDMI cable. Thus some Viera link devices of different generations will not work with the same Viera link remote.

The manual for the TC-P50ST30 is available here: http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/TCP42ST30.PDF . See page 32 for details on the Viera link controls.

I wish that I had better news for you. However, you will need to use separate remotes for your cable box and the TV.

I have a 1 1/2 year old Panasonic TC-P42U1 plasma tv. While watching a show, it suddenly shut off and won't come back on. What do you think caused this and how can i fix it? Thanks.


Try unplugging it completely for 30 seconds to 1 minute. Plug it back in. If it still won't come on, it's likely taken a power surge and popped a fuse or power supply, which means a trip to the service center.

Panasonic TC-P42U1 plasma. Lost it's vivid colors basic color is black and white and green and blue if tint color tone etc. Is turned up. However a blue ray video plays with full color. Could it be a lose...


I have an old Toshiba TV and was going to replace it with a new plasma because it has suddenly (the week of July 19, 2010) lost color. It has only green and blue tint. Changing the "tint" on the menu didn't help. The color comes and goes relative to nothing that I can measure, such as how long it is turned on, etc. Reading other complaints from owners of Plasmas, I am thinking it is cable related. I have Charter Cable. Playing a DVD, I have to readjust the tint back to normal. Hope this info gives clues.
