Question about Flat Panel Televisions
I have a 42 " Magnavox plasma tv. About every other time I turn it on, it ends up losing both picture and sound. While the 'power' indicator stays on, the only way to temporarily fix the problem is to unplug the tv, so it can reset. The problem may occur again within 30 minutes, or it may not happen again until the next day. Any ideas?
Do you know if i can use an inverter from any LCD tv, or does it have to be specific to that model? I was thinking about taking an inverter from another broken TV.

Hi, this is quite a common problem for plasma screens and LCD screens. The fluroscent backlight is more than likely faulty and would need replacing. The best thing to do is to take it to a service centre because there are no user servicable parts inside the plasma.

The six blinks indicates that an internal fan is either bad ot blocked by dust or debris, You should be able to look in the back of the unit and see some cooling fans. Chances are one on them is not turning and will need to be replaced

Adjust the automatic shut off settings on the set using the menu system. the newer models are programmed to shut down to avoid the burn-in problem associated w/ plasma scenes.
