Re: TV won't turn on.

Thats the code for convergence. This is something you can repair yourself for under 30 dollars. You will need the service manual to adjust your set after repair. Go to the following link and they have your service manual for 10.99 and that includes unlimited support to help you repair your set. They will even provide the link to order your part. After you order, if you will click on the contact us link and provide your email address they will instantly email your manual and instructions on how to enter into the chat sessions. I am one of their techs.

TV will not turn on

you either have leaky capacitors near the voltage regulators, cooling fluid leaking on the boards, and/or bad solder connections on the yoke plugs. this model is known for all 3 problems, but you probably need a qualified tv repairman to fix this right.

Tv Problem

Sony TVs generate an error code. The front panel LED (red) will flash anywhere from one to eight times which can isolate the problem circuit. It is not always accurate.

If you have a test meter which can read DC voltages and resistance in ohms, you can locate the problem area. If you lack the expertice to do so, contact a sony authorized servicer. If you have the ability, start by checking fuses on the "G" board ( power supply board) and the "D" board or deflection board.

A major problem area in this TV is the convergence circuit. There are six fuses around the convergence output ICs on the "D" board.

If any are open, replaces the output ICs.

No Power

does the front green led light flash?
unplug the set for 30 min then replug try to turn on. if the light does not flash then i might be a main fuse. Point... main fuse falure ussally means more than just fuse. if the light flashes then you have a shutdown condition. This set processor shuts it down for 1 or 25 different reasons as technicians we have a computer that reads errors much like a cars error codes.

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
