Question about Panasonic TH-42PD50U 42 in. Plasma EDTV

1 Answer

My Tv isn't working. I have the TH-42PD5ou 42 in. The television keeps making a clicking noise. I just got basic cable yesterday with no cable box. I have a cable going into the bottom of my tv. I was trying to find out how many channels I got from the serive. I kept hitting the up channel button on the controller. It search through the channels. There are channels like 79, 79-2,79-3,79-4. It just doesn't go throught 79,80,81. There were some programs on certain channels on other ones there wasn't any. Any way the problem right now is that the tv keeps making the channel flicker noise as if I'm clicking the channel. But I'm not touching the controller at all. How does this reset? I unplugged the television from the wall for about 15 minutes and that didn't fix the problem. Please Respond A.S.A.P. Football comes on in about 90 minutes. Thanks in advance, Leonard.

How to reset tv

hi Tracie,
is the set making a clicking noise?
is the power light flashing on the front?
or no power light at all just dead?
if the set is just dead, just put your ear to the back vents can you hear like a very faint screaming noise and can you smell and burning in the vent?
if so it just could be capacitors on the power board.
if its clicking the that will need a service kit on the power supply board.
if the power led is flashing then you will need to count how many flashers from start to finish when you first turn set on.
hope this helps.

It sounds like either one of your cables isn't seated properly or there is a color mismatch in them. Make sure the colors match the plugs on both your tv and Roku and also that all cables are fully and securely plugged into the respective device. If none of that fixes the problem, try using a different cable if possible, as you may have a defective cable.

Vizio TV issue

this is an indication that the power supply is working. The clicking noise shows that the power supply is booting up. If you still does not have power, it may be the main board that is not working.

Arcing noise coming from TV

Clicking, popping noise on certain channels. All connections checked for tightness, and sound is isolated to the TV, not cable box or home theater. What is the cause and fix? Does it involve an inhome service call?
