Panasonic TH-50PX77U Plasma

Just purchased a new, out of the box Panasonic TH-50px77u plasma tv. Hooked it up and tried to watch a DVD for the first time, power was on for about 30 seconds and then the screen went black. The red light next to the power indicator is blinking 10 times and then is seems to reset and do it all over again.

Am I toast?

Well don't tamper with it just return it, there is serveral problem that may cause this, most likely it is the power supply board.

My panasonic high definition plasma television, Model # TH-42PX75U, I CRACK IN THE SCHREEN, HAS SOUND BUT NO PICTURE . CAN IT BE REPAIRED WHAT SHOULD I DO?

It is possible to be repaired. Though I don't know about the availability of the screen. How long have you owned the tv? Your best bet may be to sell it for parts and purchase a new tv. If you have any questions or need any other assistance please let me know.

37" PANASONIC plasma tv, turns on, sound is good, but picture is not good. cannot see anything, except horizontal lines and statis (all snowy).

Is your Receiver/Cable hooked up right ?
check that.
If that doesn't help try going in video mode and playing a dvd with a dvd-player hooked straight in to the composite [Red/Yellow/White] plugs. then check if you get a picture if you dont the problem is most likely in your Tv

Is this Tv new ? or did it just start happening ?

Please respond with more details

without having a play with the remote its difficult to know exactly ,but either way their is a fault with your remote or the reciever in the actual set and the only way to get this sorted is the man with the right software to plug into the TV to diagnose the problem ,sorry to say it and that is to return the set with the remote to the dealer.

You can purchase the plasma panel for $1094.43 from using the part number: MD42H11A1J. This part has a dud value of $200 which means that you will get a $200 refund once the bad one is returned.

Hope this helps,

Purple lines bleeding over picture contors on plasma tv

I just had this problem with my pani pro plasma display (th-42ph9uk). Tried new wires, new cable box and had no luck. So, I went ahead and scheduled a service call.

Then, I bought a new surge protector - just a simple one from Radio Shack, that allows you to run the cable (coax) through it as well and it solved everything. Turns out it was a ground loop problem - and basically had nothing to do with the plasma.

Give it a shoot. simple fix for a very annoying problem. hope it works

Plasma tv screen goes black once you turn it on. Only sound

I have a panasonic TH-42PX60U plasma TV. When I watch TV programing I have no problems, or with the DVD input. But if I switch to another input, be it video game (PS2) or vcr the screen sometimes goes black and the red power lcd light next to the power switch flashes. Holding the power button in for a few seconds will shut down the tv. Then I can turn it back on and it may operate normally again for a undetermined period of time, before the screen goes black again. This never happened when new. The tv is about 1 year old. Any ideas on this problem? Thanks Ernie

No picture but sound on panasonic plasma

Unplug the TV and disconnect any HDMI cables to the set. If the issue goes away there is a possibility that your HDMI source is causing the problem. Anything on the HDMI can cause odd problems with the TV since the serial data and serail clock lines are routed on HDMI. Those are the 2 commmunication lines used throught the TV for operation so anything HDMI that might load down one of those can cause issues.
