You have a part failing in the high voltage circuits that supply the Plasma display, this will most likely require a entire new circuit board, in short it will end up being cheaper to replace the TV, the new LCD"s are cheap and very reliable.

Ohms was on the right track. A brighter picture will require more power. There is a problem within the power supply and the protection circuits are kicking in to prevent further damage. Since this works for a while before the problem shows up, I'd be looking for either connection problems or a heat related component failure. This is not likely to be diagnosed remotely. A service tech will need to reproduce the problem and then use a "freeze spray" to locate the offending component. Since there are high voltages inside and the panel is very fragile, I would suggest that a service center be used for this repair.

When it's BRIGHT, more power is needed (by default screen color is DARK so low or no power is needed).

Internal electronics issue. Got the know-how to look at electronics ?

    OK I am going to suggest that you go in to the menu settings and (lower) the>Brightnes< & >Contrast< 50%

    See if the TV starts to have the same problem


    IF this continues THERE is an internal problem with the board or power module...... PLEASE bring ot to a Autorized Repiar man>


    Most TV specialist will not charge you not look at it and what ever the fee is (small) they will apply that to the repair cost so you are not charged EXTRA


    I sure hope this help you narrow out the problems

Cannot get my playstation 3 to work,the sound works but no picther.i have it hooked on hdmi.its not the cabel because it works on my other tv


The only thing that comes to mind is maybe you need to reset it?? If your other tv can display high resolution than the newer one it might be blacking out. When the ps3 is on, hold down on the power button for a few seconds until it beeps. This should reset it and allow you to change your display to suit the new tv.

50" plasma wont turn on!!


To reset a TV you simply unplug it for an hour. Your TV needs to be repaired. If you're under warranty the repair will be covered. If you're out of warranty you need to be prepared to pay at least a couple of hundred out-of-pocket.

I hope I've provided you useful assistance and that this information allows you to make an informed decision as to how to proceed from here. Please be sure to vote on my response. I hope I've earned a good rating from you today.

Please post a comment if you need additional assistance so that I can help you further.

My Sampo 50" Plasma tv has started blinking


In my solution I suggested part-store where you can find boards for your tv. I'm not sure what board is defective as TV isn't in front of me and in my opinion you need qualified tech person to identify what board is required to resolve the TV issue.
Thank you.

it could have over heated you can try to reset it first unplug it for about five minutes and try to turn it on if that dont work the remote might have a set button try holding that down until the red light flashes twice, then turn it on if not then hold the power button down on the set for a good five seconds to see if that resets it. if none of that works you will have to go to panasonic .com for the reset instructions.with the red light blinking the power supply is most likely good you just need to reset i.
