Question about Panasonic TH-42PX75U 42 in. Plasma Television

3 Answers

42" panasonic viesta plasma tv cuts off after about 30 minutes

It cuts off after maybe 30 minutes. If I unplug it for a while I can turn it back on and it will cut off again in about 30 minutes. When this happens I also noted the little red light by the power switch on the tv blinks 8 times then pauses and blinks 8 times and so on... This tv is only about 14 months old.

    I am having the same problem except it turns off every 15 minutes. It is less than 2 years old. I did not expect something like this to happen to a Panasonic TV! Paid a lot of money for it...and would not expect this from Panasonic. Is there a part that we can order to fix it ourselves?

    I too have this problem. The t.v.is relatively new. It shuts itself off - sometimes within seconds of turning it on. Sometimes it will run for 15 min or so. The little red light blinks eight times, then will stay red for a couple of seconds, then will return to blinking eight times. Needless to say, this expensive unit cannot be depended on at all.

    I too have the same problem with the same tv. Mine also is just over a year old. After a bad experience with a Phillips I bought this Panasonic because of their dependability.

    Mine just periodically shuts off and then in a minute or so you can hear it click twice and then

    you can turn it back on.

Adjust the automatic shut off settings on the set using the menu system. the newer models are programmed to shut down to avoid the burn-in problem associated w/ plasma scenes.

The "D" board will have to be replaced in the unit to fix that issue.

Hello gws51,

This sounds like a shutdown circuit proble, which is caused by the draw of excessive current. I would suggest that you have a qualified TV repair person look at you set and repair it.

I hope this helps

Thank you,

My lg plasma tv is cutting off the edges of the shows we are watching. I cant find a setting that will take care of it. Can you help


hmm normally these settings are found in the picture settings of the set top box or just a setting in the tv's picture settings now there might be an option to say fill screen that may work best for some or leave the tv in 16:9 some broadcasts may only be in 4:3 at times this is normal broadcasting and not much can be done unless the setting on the picture option is set to fill screen

I have pioneer plasma tv about 6 years old. I turned the power on, sound but no picture. Do you think it is worth fixing?


no
plasma tv units consume considerable power and the latest led units don't so for the extra cost of a new unit , there will be a power saving over the years

My sony wega kf-50E200A tv keeps turning off. during each cycle the green light blinks 42 times and the tv comes on again for about 3 minutes and it happens all over again


More than likely the power supply is defective, but without testing and the repair manual that is just a guess, you make the decision to replace or repair the TV.
