Question about Panasonic VIERA TH-65PV500 65 in. Plasma Television
I was in London for about a year and i bought this plasma Panasonic Th-50PX60B. Now i am back in my home town Mumbai (India), i shiped the plasma here. I waited for like 2 to 3 days to turn my plasma on after which i did and when i turn it on i get the picture but no sound and it just goes blank after 4 to 5 seconds and then there is no picture and no sound. And also the red light blinks for 11 times. I have put a complain across over here but it seems they do not have the Circuit diagram of my plasma as it is not manufactured in India and also the particular model is not manufactured anywhere. Please if anyone out there can help me i would be really very thankful.
The power supply, and or some other board in the set has probably failed, and the supply is in the protect mode.
These sets are not serviced at the component level unless the fault is very simple. They are serviced by swapping out the modules.
As for the schematics, the service reps mainly use functional diagrams, and use the factory level alignment sections. They replace the failed modules and then do any necessary calibrations according to the service set-ups. At home I don't think you would have the necessary facilities and tools to troubleshoot the set and to do any of the calibrations if necessary.
As for the electrical power, is there any difference between where you are and back in the UK? If there is, and if you did not use the proper power conversion equipment the set was probably damaged.
Another aspect to look at is if the broadcast system is different between India and the UK. If so, the set will not be able to receive any programing without the proper conversion process. Signal conversion will add some quality loss.
I strongly think your set may not be compatible to the standards for the country where you brought it because of the fact that the set is not locally supported.
I am located in North America. When I was working in TV service we had people bring TV sets from different parts of the world. There were both electrical and signal standard differences. In the end, they had to buy a new TV set that would work locally. The foreign set ended up being a useless monument in a storage room.
