    If the problem happened after a move then there is a good chance that there is a bad connections somewhere inside.


    The first thing to do will be to take the back cover off and look for physical damage, then you can look at the wires that interconnect the boards and make sure that the connectors are securely pushed in.


    Also if you look at the back cover you may have a number that looks like P60S601, that would be the model number, if you could give me that number it would help.

    Yes that would help.

    I`ll check for your reply tomorrow.

OK please find links above for Service and training manuals for your type of set, go through the troubleshooting procedures, and I am sure you will soon identify your problem. These are the manual used to teach the engineers to repair and service.
I get TV's all the time, in my shop, that have been "Transported" Without the original packaging, and the just moving them has caused them to fail..Often it is a dislodged cable, a fractured solder joint, dislodged cards, etc, look around heavy fittings such as heatsinks, transformer,big inductors, etc, and big metal units, these can cause joints to crack and go bad. Always start at the Power Supply, as if this isn't right nothing else can be, right? Anyway work through the manuals. You really need to get yourself YOUR service manual, for your exact make and model, that way it pertains to your set, and not a generic one.
IF you wish to try to fix it yourself, and I do not recommend it. FIRST, you Must get a service manual, then you need, equipment, an Oscilloscope is a MUST HAVE. Also a Multimeter, and soldering iron, a DE-soldering station, an anti-static wrist strap, (Any TV is extremely static sensitive). Now FIRST you must make sure the Power supply is 100% as if this is NOT then nothing else can be. Also there are safety considerations, any unit that can cause a Fire or Explosion, or both, needs to be attended to with the utmost care. As if it isn't done correctly, a catastrophe is indeed possible, Faulty sets can cause a fire, and a fire in the middle of the night, I believe is not good. And any person that has attended that set, will be held to account. Now with that understanding, I guess proceed if you wish. Troubleshooting say if it is shutting down, after a certain amount of time, of working and then faulting, then it is most definitely a "Thermal" problem, the way we "Find" problems such as this is "Freeze Spray" you use this on each component that is suspected of being the "Culprit" and you will soon,find that errant component. Now also not every fault is a Capacitor, I see many, many people that think, that Capacitors are always the "Culprit" now while that may be true in a few cases, a faulty Electrolytic Cap, or ordinary, Cap goes faulty, this is only a SYMPTOM, something has damaged those caps causing them to "Fail". One MUST always find the root "Cause", otherwise if you just treat, the SYMPTOM, the "Cause" will just make the "Symptom" come back, in short order, as the prime cause still, hasn't been fixed., Now Capacitors hate AC ripple, or Over Voltage. Thats it. Oh.. and Heat, if these Capacitors, are too close to a Heat Source, then thats a prime cause of failure. Resistors, hardly ever go faulty,and if they do, it is generally obvious. However it doesn't hurt to check values with our Multimeter. Remember though resistors are made, with up to 20% tolerance from stated value, as such, are not too critical, unless in Timing circuits etc. Always check, the Values, of resistors, as with any other component, with the power OFF. Now Diodes especially "Zener Diode", are another thing to check, those and ordinary "Signal Diode" should always be suspect. next we have Transistors and IC's. The Transistors MUST ALL be checked to see if they have a good, "Junction" this is done, with our meter set to "Diode Test" and usually are about 0.6 to 0.7. With IC's you must check, voltage levels, or Logic Levels, going in and out, have a look at the circuit diagram, and it will tell you what they should be. It is a good idea to always measure the Power Supply voltages, see if a "Rail" is Low, that will be because some component has gone somewhat or all short circuit, to Earth, now, if the "Rail" is Higher, suspect an "Open Circuit" component, like a Diode, or Transistor. The voltages expressed in the manual are spot on, ANY variation MUST be investigated. I have been doing all this for over 30 years now, and I do indeed wish, we could have a set of "Symptoms" and be ables to say.. "Oh that;s the so-in-so and replace this" however unfortunately this although does happen, most "Symptoms" can have literally tens, of "Causes" all often "Interlinked" One simply has to do a methodical troubleshooting procedure, and always think, "are my Voltages Correct" as this is how, you Fix the problem, by making them so. Keep up the good work. If that link above doesn't furnish a Service manual, it is imperative you get one, even if you must pay for it. It will pay for itself in about 2 mins. Now just replacing boards will most likely just end up with more faulty, boards, as related you MUST ensure that you have the cause of the event, before we change anything. I have seen so called, "Techs" replace every board, and virtually every component, and that STILL didn't fix it, because the "Fault, or Cause" lay elsewhere, and had not be repaired FIRST, you see that FIRST STEP, like everything in life, is, CRITICAL.
Now if you feel that it you do not want to do it. It is my professional advice is to get you set looked at by an Authorised Service Centre, and ask for free "Quote", this way, you will be able to make an informed judgment, as to repair or replace. As these days seemingly insignificant SYMPTOMS, often cost as much to repair as it may cost to buy.

Several possible suspects include: power board, main board--first step is test voltages coming out of power board--------remotely possible also is the display itself (panel which is screen unit) if it turns out to be that it is fatal.

I have experienced this problem a few times with your TV. First check and make sure that the speaker toggle option is set to "on". I have seen this 3 times and ended up replacing the television main board, which restored the audio.

Panny TH-42PZ80U Plasma TV No display on Power-up


I had this same exact issue. Panasonic sent a repair tech to my house since I was still under warranty. The tech was able to fix me up in about 10 minutes. He replaced the "brain" or A-board and now I'm back in business. This is NOT a power supply issue. The brain is the circuit board that has all the inputs attached to it (component, hdmi, etc...).

hope this helps!

Red light flashing, no picture/sound!!!!


HI, this unit has 3 main fuse links on the main board that may be blown. the fuse links should be check before you move further into the diagnosis stage. once you have checked the fuses and they are still in a working state, this will confirm a power supply board failure. this board provides and regulates the current flow and distribution of it throughout the entire unit. If the fuses are fine and the power supply board is damaged, the green light will come on briefly then, the main control will notice that the power supply is not functioning properly. Once the main control board senses an abnormal current, it will shut down the TV rendering the red light warning. The list of fuses to check are below. Remember, if they are fine and working, the issue will be the power supply board itself and, it will need to be replaced.

FUSE CHECK LIST--

3A 12v- fuse----(242208600623)
SM 3A 125v-fuse----(242208600657)
500 MA-fuse-----(242208611092)

ESA 42" plasma tv not turning on


I have a 42 inch plasma and I was watching tv last night on it and suddenly it turned off on it's own. I tried turning it off and on and nothing happened. Then I tried to unplug it and replug it and nothing. My remote does not work either. Anyone know what exactly happened? Did my screen blow or what? I hardly ever use the tv and I only had it on from 8:30 p.m. - 10:20 p.m. and it turned off. All the other tv's in my house worked fine - I checked them. Also, my dvd player and cable box is on the same power cord and both of them work. Any solutions or help would be most appreciated!!! Does it just need to cool down or did I burn something out? Help!!!
