Nothing you can do except take it in for an estimate of the damage. I've had a couple of those in for repair and the power supply took a nasty hit, which had to be replaced. One repaired for $250.00, the other declined and bought a new one, so the decision is yours on what to do.

Panasonic viera 50px80u tv will turn on but no picture. HELP?!?!

If your LCD TV or monitor has stopped working, or is displaying one of the following symptoms, then it's a candidate for some new capacitors
- Flickering screen
- Screen image disappears after several seconds
- Dim screen
- Slow start
- Power LED on, but no picture
- Unusual colors and/or lines
The primary cause of LCD TV and monitor failure is caused by faulty capacitors. You can examine the capacitors in your LCD TV or monitor and actually see if they are bad.
If they appear bulged on top, then they need to be replaced.
New capacitors will solve a host of problems in LCD monitors and TV's and will extend the life of your monitor or TV by several years.
Check the cables, connectors and connections.
Take it to a repair shop.

Hi Josh,
Your TV is 7 years old, so it is not worth spending a lot of money fixing. You could take it to a shop for an estimate.

The picture went out on my TV

This is not a user repairable issue and would require a TV repair shop. You may want to consider a new flat screen TV before spending the money on repairs.

What if the car is stuck in limp mode and it loses power?

if it won`t start call a tow truck to take it to a shop. if you don`t want to spend the money for a tow you won`t want to spend the money to repair the car anyways.

My 32'' HCT TV screen break, where can i take it

If you mean that the screen is actually broken ie the glass then you would pay more for a new screen than you would for a new replacement tv. If it is just not working it could be a back light problem or something else. Unless you are covered under warranty almost any repair is going to cost almost as much as a new tv. 32's are inexpensive now so you have to be careful on spending too much on repairs.

The easiest way to find a repair shop is to call the store you bought it from and they will have the information of the repair depot nearest you. I don't see where you are located so you could be anywhere in the world. Check your warranty, check with the store and repair shop for repair cost and check out the price of a new tv. You will most likely find a new tv is the cheapest way to go.

I have accidently broken my tv screen, when the tv is on there is a big crack and lots of black lines running off it but when the tv is off it looks normal. It happened when something fell into the screen....

Hi, it sure is fixable and maybe worth it too, you may even be able to judge before spending any money on it, just know the brand, size and model and you can either check on the net for the screen price or call one of the repair services (depends on your location) to get an estimate for the total (screen+labor), if the TV is large then they will set a date and send a Technician to you with the screen and will repair it for you... Some of the well known repair services across the country: Bestbuy, Sears and Walmart(in some ereas) and sure there is a lot more local ones you can find in the yellow pages... best of luck

-TV does not power on. -TV has been plugged into multiple outlets with no success. Was working just hours before. Now no lights power on, nor does the screen.

It sounds like you have a bad power supply module part number BN96-03057A for a model LNS3241D. Please take a moment to rate my answer. Thanks..

Power light stays red and nothing comes on on my RCA L37WD12 Flat Screen what is the problem? I guess it's getting power because of the red power light, but TV is not turning on! Please HELP

I just had my Vizio which blew up and the power light stayed on and you could not turn it off on the tv you had to unplug it and then when you plug it back in same thing all over again, no picture at all , My TV made a loud pop before this happened, paid 1700 for TV and repairs were 900, bought new TV instead, never buy a Visio, there customer service totally sucks, you get a warranty and they try to screw you with an old piece of junk refurbished TV, they tried anyway, after 2 months they finally gave me my money back and I bought a totally awesome, SAMSUMG, THE WAY TO GO!! It sounds like the same deal and if it is a Visio just do a google search and see how many people it has happened to that own a visio..steve

No power

Something inside is loose, so it's time to buy a flat panel tv or spend $50 to get it repaired.
