SOURCE: Bose lifestyle 25 system and Panasonic Plasma Tv not working together

I posted the message as Tet Tet before. I can now tell you that I have resolved the problem. The issue is with the Panasonic 50Inch TV. Some people reported the same problem but only when the TV was up on the wall. It turns out that the problem lies with the metal discs which screw on at the back of the TV to enable you to hand the TV on the wall bracket. In my case I had excessive interference caused at the back of the TV (could be the fan). When I put the TV on the wall bracket the metal discs would be in contact with the wall bracket which in turn was acting as an antenna causing the iterference to the bose remote which operates at a frequency of 27.45MHz. You can solve the issue by adding some insulating tape around all the metal discs avoiding them to make contact with the wall bracket. If that fails Panasonic will swap your TV for another one like they did with me. I can now enjoy my Bose System with the 50 inch Panasonic TV. It took me three months but managed to get a solution. I hope this helps. For further info you can mail me at rizzocarlo@hotmail.com. These discs should be made of metal because they are perforating the metal screen at the back of the TV. Panasonic please change this design.

SOURCE: LG 42PX4MVH PLASMA TV - Sound but no picture.

I have the same issue with my LG 42PC3DVA and I narrowed it down to the Y SUS board. After a little research there are a few items that are prone to go. The ceramic fuses (as you found), sometimes the capacitors on the Y SUS, Z SUS, and power supply go along with them You can tell because thy will be bulged at the top instead of flat. I replaced a few of my capacitors - they are only $0.89 each so it was MUCH cheaper than a board.

The other thing that is common on the Y SUS in particular are the FETs (also called MOSFET). They can be replaced if you are good with a soldering gun but they are static sensitive so be grounded. They are also a bit tricky to test so you may want to do some research on how to determine if this is the issue... or you can just replace the whole board.

It is glass but it may have a treatment on the surface, typically cleaning it will help. Buff with a microfiber cloth.

SOURCE: Desperately seeking a service (repair)

I have searched for quite some time for this Service Manual for you for free, and it just is not available anywhere online. The best I can find is a place you can purchase it from and receive an instant download, for $7.95. Definitely much less expensive than buying it directly from Panasonic, or taking it to a service shop. So sorry I couldn't find a free one for you.

Please make sure you rate my answer 4 thumbs up, it is extremely important to me. I would be forever grateful if you could do so. If you need more help on this question please just respond to my answer here and I will get right back to you.

Here it is for $7.95:

Hi, Mary.

This sounds to me like it is a bulb issue, and not something worse, like failed capacitors.
If that is the case, then yes, it is worth repairing it.

You need to get the old bulb out, either by removing it yourself, or by having someone take it out for you, and the take the old bulb to Fry's or BestBuy.

They both keep tv projection bulbs for flat screen tv's in stock.

I hope that I've helped you understand what is going on, and that it helped.

Have a nice day, and good luck.

I had my 50 inch panasonic veira flat screen tv on when it was thundering in lighting in now i have no hd


Hi Carlos,
Thundering and lightening can damage your set in many ways. Sometimes if you are lucky, you escape with a blown fuse and some minor safety components damaged. Well open the back cover and see if the fuse is blown. If there is no other visible damage, try a new fuse of the same rating. If the tv works, well and good and if the fuse blows again, please consult the TV tech.
Good luck.

Panasonic TC-P42G15, plasma flat screen tv owner. lost power while watching, would not turn back on. got flashing red light at first. unhooked all cables, and power cable. plugged back in, tv turned on but...


Please check these 3 boards for blown fuses, bad caps, blown/shorted components.
Power supply, Y-SUSTAIN, and Z-SUSTAIN board.
You should download any one of the PLASMA TV training manuals to learn how PLASMA TV works from the link below, it will help you to get more understanding.

First, look at the screen in darkened room to see if you can see any slight glow from the screen, if it does, then the problem can be the T-CON (not getting the 12vdc) or the main logic board not feeding the signals to the T-CON board.
if not, next place to check will be the power supply module, make sure it has 24vdc which is required by the backlight inverter to work, the reason for not having 24vdc can be from bad DC filter caps (leaking/bulging top, high ESR) or short circuits in the inverter board which will cause the 24vdc supply to go into shutdown mode, so you may have to disconnect the power cable that feed the inverter board to see if the 24vdc will work without the inverter board hookup, you will need to apply about 3~4 amp of load to the 24vdc to make sure it can handle that. There are fuses on the backlight inverter boards also. So there is some troubleshooting you will have to do to find out the causes of the problem you are having.

When looking up close I see white dots ( almost looks like static ) on darker scenes on my new Panasonic TC-P65S1 Plasma. Only been running for about 24 hours


Your panel voltages are improperly adjusted. If you have the 30 return options, take it and get another. If not, contact Panasonic... they will set you up with a servicer who can properly adjust the panel voltages. I hope this helps.
