    I have the same problem. When I turn on the TV, the orange light appears and then turns to red after a few seconds. It remains on red, but no picture or sound.

    the blue power light comes on then you hear a clicking sound then shuts off. sometimes the tv comes on and only stays on for a few minutes

    When the tv is turned on there is sound but no picture. When turned on, the red light that indicates when the tv is off, blinks 4 times then stays off just as if the tv is on.

Plasma Hyundai 42'' TV ,NO SOUND OR PICTURE

most times then not it's the capacitors on your power board that blew there for not supplying the tv with enough power if you open it up and check the capacitors it should be leaking some kind of liquid or the tops have bubbled up. its an easy fix cost>>2 dollars each

Should have been 3300 UF 10V caps that were bad? Shouls have been replaced with 3300UF 18V. 50V is huge. If it was replaced with a 50 the polarity may be wrong or the cap it too big to be seated property. Sometimes the caps just dry out and even a normal looking one will be the culprit of no OSD. Are you getting an LED fault code blinking? That should be a red led. Do you hear the relay clicking.? When you replaced the caps did you charge them? Just plugging in the set without trying to power it on for about 20-30 mins. I may be able to help you

Panasonic TH-42PX80U won't turn on.

You are missing 15volts. If this is a new TV, it could be as simple as a plug not fully seated on the power supply. Regardless, the repair should be covered by warranty and Panasonic is one of the best when it comes to taking care of the customer. Ifd nI can be of further assistance, let me know
