Try restting it by unplugging the tv for a few mins and it should rest to original factory default settings but leave it unplugged 10-15 mins to be sure.

Wot is up with wy tv it is stuck on the standby light and wont turn on

Hi, Its most probably a few capacitors on the power supply board,
it is an easy fix if you can use a solder iron.
Hope this helps.

You Need a new Power Supply, part # LJ44-00025A
buy it here for $139
I have my tv working like new.
If you want this time the power supply last, do not turn off, just press tv/video button to switch input source, let the tv in sleep mode.

Stuck on Standby, Fujitsu Plasmavision: Model pds4229e-b

I had exactly the same problem with a Fujitsu General PDS4208E. After looking at the forums etc bit the bullet and tracked down an ORIGINAL remote. Paid yesterday, arrived today - batteries in...screen back on!! One proviso here: Before you pay big money for an original remote (and ONLY they will work with these 2nd generation plasma screens not universal remotes) make sure that your screen WAS working before it was in the standby mode. try on +44 208 968 1444. Ask for Andy. He seemed to know what he was talking about. About £50 +VAT plus next day delivery charge. Alternatively borrow mine at £5 a button press!! ;-))
