Question about Panasonic TH37PX60 37 in. Plasma Television
I have a 37" plasma panel which has given trouble free running up till now.
It's about 6 years old, wall mounted, being run from an panasonic tuner box. Picture fine when it works. responds to remote stby light green in normal operation.
Runs for about 5 mins then goes dark. the stanby light next to on switch now flashes red, one short flash followed by one long flash . unit will not respond to remote.
switch off then on provides a reset and picture returns.
I had the same issue twice with a TH 42PWD5. turns out it was my UPS that was killing the switching power supply. Warranty covered it but when I removed the UPS not a single issue in 3 years.

Hi, Usually any "Pops" are an Electrolytic Capacitor "blowing up" quite literally, or "Gassing" as it is called. This happens due to some sort of power problem. Capacitors hate AC Voltage and Current, and Heat and Over Voltage. All of which, I have no doubt it was exposed to before it went "Pop" This is only a symptom of a far greater problem, to come, no doubt, soon, the rest of the set will fail too. Please DO NOT USE. this set any more, you risk fire or explosion or both. If you MUST use it at least unplug at bed time. Theses days home repair except for the most rudimentary problem is not feasible, setting aside the safety aspect. In my professional opinion, I would recommend, that you get a "Quote" for repair from a Philips Authorised Service Agent This is very important, that you contact a Philips head office and ask for a referral. This way at least you can make a decision to repair or replace.

Thanks for using FixYa.These kind of issues in plasma usually happens due to bad cap on any of the boards inside. However, to check what has gone bad you’ll have to open the back of the unit you’ll need to check bulged/swollen capacitors on power supply board. As the unit won’t show anything for a long time so it means that it is the power board which is causing this issue. These issues usually happens due to overheating in plasma TVs after sometime, as these sets are very hard working device and produces a lot of heat.Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.
