Question about Panasonic TH-42PX60U Television

1 Answer

Plasma picture problem after ~15 minutes

After about 15 minutes of being turned on, the picture on my Panasonic Plasma TV (Model TH-42PX60U) becomes covered in a red pixellated appearance (not really sure how to descride it). Almost like a negative view, but some solid red areas with the edges pixellated. Additionally, we are at about 6000 feet (which I heard after I bought the TV, may be an issue). Any truth in that?
Since the set is out of Warranty, I'm looking for recommended service center in the Colorado Springs area.

    I have the same problem with my Panasonic plasma but get the fuzz and pixelation in red and green. It isn't constant and I do get a normal picture at times too. There doesn't seem to be aanything obvious that causes it . its just happens sporadically and really disrupts viewing.

When we turn on our TV, there is a green shadow and green pixals. it lasts for 10-15 minutes and then goes away.


This symptom is the beginning of the end of the TV. Unfortunately, the repair costs, which probably involve the processor, would exceed the price of a new (and better because of features available) TV. Sticking with plasma is logical for price and quality.

Green tint in picture


Are the lines completely through the screen or just the upper or lower part of the screen? If through the whole picture, lines in the picture of a plasma can be caused by a defective Main Logic Control board or a bad plasma panel. The panel, if available would be very expensive (cheaper to buy a new TV). If the lines are just on the upper or lower part of the screen then it is the upper or lower scan drive board. Here is a list of the parts for your TV.

Actually have the 50in same model, TV power goes off after on for 30 minutes and takes 10 minutes to turn back on. Sleep timer is off.


If the problem is same with different input devices and you have ensured there are no loose contacts in power outlet, RC jack, cable and sockets, the TV needs servicing.

TH-42PX60U wont turn on. Blinks 10 times. replaced the power supply board, but the same issue.


What I'm learning is there are several models of Panasonic TV's that have a video card that doesn't play well with HDMI applications and the end result is, you need to call this number and not only make arrangements to replace the bad board,but also this!
Your model doesn't show below,but I'd certinly inquire about the necessity of a "Firmware" update!,,,Panasonic knows FULL WELL they have a HUGE problem here!
Hope this helps!

At panasonic.ca I found the listing for the fw update under customer support-important notices

I had a similar problem where my TH-42PX60 would turn on but all controls were disabled. I could not change channel, input, volume or anything other than turning the TV on and off. I called customer support and they directed me to this site: http://www.pasctraining.panasonic.com/specialapplications/productfirmwaredownloads/downloads1.asp to download a firmware update onto an SD Card. I inserted the SD card into the slot in my TV and powered it on. The update took about 3 minutes and I haven't had a problem since.
This is a link to the instructions to install the update:
