Question about Televison & Video
The problem this television is experiencing is from the lamp of the television. It is faulty and needs replacement.
The lamp is located right behind the screen, it is what gives the screen light when turned on.
The reason the lamp got faulty is due to overheating. Once the panel is overheated, then the bulb will be damaged and might be too weak to bring light to the screen.
Try to call in a repairman to fix this for you, because the process is very technical and difficult, it requires the hands of an expert.
Another reason your television is not coming up might be that there is partial contact on the power panel of the television. to fix this is simple, all you have to do is open up the television, get the power panel and clean it with naphthalene using a brush in order to clean up any lead that is causing the partial contact. Dry it up and intall it back on the television.
Or you can get a new power panel for the television.

Thanks for using FixYa. A plasma TV is a very hard working device. It is working harder than any TV that has been built before, and as a result it produces a lot of heat. 75% of technical problems in plasma TV's are caused by overheating problems. You’ll need to check the power supply board first for any swollen/bulged capacitors. As power supply board is the hardest working board in a plasma TV, it develops voltage to supply all components, high current + high voltage. All this is only recommended if you have electrical expertise & know how to solder/re-solder components as these units contain high voltages even when switched off. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
