Question about Panasonic TH-42PD50U 42 in. Plasma EDTV
I have a TH-42PD25 Panasonic TV that plays the HD channels off a TimeWarner Motorola DVR very well , but when you go to view the analog cable channels off the same box ( comp color in, or HDMI, have tried both) they have no RED in them .. And lots if noise. This all happened after I turned the power off to install a Wii ... the Wii works great, color is fine ... so I'm at a loss to figure it out .. unles there is a tuner in the TV for analog cable that is toast.... but it upsizes the Wii picture and displays it fine ?

This is a known problem. Panasonic sells a jig to correct it. I had the same problem and bought the jig for $60. It plugs into a special port in the back of the tv behind a little door. You can read all about it here: http://www.avsforum.com/avs-vb/showthrea... if you want, contact me by replying and I can mail you the jig temporarily for $10 plus S&H. You'll save money and it worked for me, i just need it back.

are you using a PC to feed a signal or maybe a cable with an adapter?
I had the same issue when I used one of the rear HDMI ports to show a PC display. Apparently there is a software difference between the rear and side/front ports. Inputting the PC through the side HDMI port has solved the problem for me (so far!)

Most likely the failure of the Screen.
If you purchased the product new, and have the receipt Panasonic will repair it FOC from what I understand, at least 3 years, your TV is no where near that old yet.
If you bought it, but don't have the receipt.....

The way to solve the problem with the TH-50PZ80U blinking light problem is to not buy Panasonic Products. I have had my TV about 21 months and it has started with the blinking light problem, just out of warranty. Panasonic is aware of this problem and refuses to do recall or fix the tv unless you are within the warranty or have bought the extended warranty. Legally they are within their rights, but I am also within my rights to air my complaint and inform others of this below par product. Who wants a TV that they have to unplug for a while and pug it in again for it to work. I want to push the power button and it come's on. I will never purchase another PANASONIC PRODUCT.
