Question about Panasonic Viera TH-50PZ80U Plasma TV
Thanks for using FixYa. From what you have described it seems to be an issue with Y board however, Z and the logic board should also be checked. These boards are located on the right side of the unit and to check them you'll have to open the back of the unit. Once you have opened the back also check for any blown/bulged capacitors. 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 in off position.Please accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Hi, im sorry but i can only bring you bad news im afraid if you have any warranty then it will be covered but if your warranty has ran out then the only way it would be cheap enough to fix is if you could get hold of one with say smashed screen.
the problem is with new tellys they are not servicable like the old ones, you cant just by single chips and solder them onto the board they made these so you have to buy the whole board to get it working, and as it sounds like you have had a power surge then the chances are the video board is scrap and also the amp is bad the power board may be the only part working,
you could try a local repair shop on the off chance they may have the same telly in the shop that they are using for parts but basically thats the only real chance you have got unless its still got warranty left.
next time you get a telly or manage to get this one repaired make sure you buy a surge protector and then plug the telly into this as the next time you have a storm and lightning hits the power sub station the surge will be stopped by the surge protector and this then shuts everything down at the plug before the surge can reach the telly, they are not expensive to buy and you should also have one for any games console and pc or laptop as these will be damaged by small power surge.
let me know if you need further assistance ok

No, it seems that the storm with a lighting strike gave a power surge to the house and
it possibly fried the tuner and the LCD logic controller. It may have just bypassed the p
power supply and went straight to the components that maintain voltage/current to the
LCD controller and the electronic tuner.
If you get this repaired please purchase a "surge protection" power strip with rating of
50000 joules or more and see if it is guaranteed by the manufacture to replace your
appliance if it doesn't protect it.
