My experiance is to not put money into a TV that is over ten years old. TVs stress out their electronic components worse than almost any other electronic product. After 10 years, there are so many parts that are ready to fail that your are probably wasting your money trying to get any more life out of it.
Another option is to wholesale replace the main board by sending it to Module Exchange at 972-298-1212, or PTS Electronics 800-844-7871 ptscorp.com.
Be careful on buying a new one though. Often times, these new technology ones are much worse. Always Google the model number of the set you intend to buy and add the word 'repair' or 'complaint' to see if it is one of the many models that are customer service nightmares being produced by even the most reputable companies today.
Hope ya fix it!

The vertical driver is starting to fail. It's the device that supplies the height of the picture. Hence the name. I do not have a part number for this item. You would need access to a service manual. Is the model # correct? I did a quick search & haven't found anyone who recognizes that #. Not even Panasonic. If the model is correct than Panasonic no longer supports your TV. There maybe a repair shop with a copy of the service manual somewhere in the US. Gaining access to manual for the parts list then finding a suitable replacement part could be quite challenging. The fact the unit is 15 yrs old means that you've more more than received your money's worth. With the advent of digital broadcasting starting next year, its probably time to seriously consider upgrading.

Only the right side of my Panasonic Plasma TV (TC-P50UT50) is displaying. The left is is black with some white flickering lights. Sound and video on the right side are perfect.


Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis.

To some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement.

Panasonic tc-l32x2x


I can very well understand how disappointing this is. But no company can ever do a free replacement for such causes. You need to have pest control in the house as the cockroaches can damage any electronic equipment from microwave oven to audio/video equipment in the house. If you do not do that, it will be Panasonic today and some other brand tomorrow.
