Question about Panasonic TH-50PX60U 50 in. Plasma HDTV
Hi, my 1 month old 50 in. recently just turned itself off. After a few times trying to turn back on , I unplugged from the wall and tried again. The tv is connected to high speed cable. when it all came back on again, a black vertical bar in the exact center of the screen, going from top to bottom, came on. I have tried unplugging again etc. but nothing is removing the black bar. It shows when I do the retention scroll too. Everything else works fine, and the picture is excellent except where the vertical bar is. Can this problem be corrected , or is the tv defective?
My problem turned out to be silly but simple. I recently took my TV off the wall and mounted it on a stand alone platform. I snaked the power plug through the back tube and left too much tension at the entry point for power. If you leave the slightest tension the female connector will jiggle and it will shut off. It normally takes 3 minutes before you can retry and then the problem persists. Try allowing more slack and/or buying a new power connector to make sure the plug connects correctly. Good Luck!
