Question about Panasonic TH-42PX50U 42 in. Plasma HDTV

2 Answers

I have a Panasonic TH-42PX50u that suddenly is stuck on one channel and no volume control either. Same whether using remote or on TV. Only turns on and off no other control.

Suddenly I have no control of the TV, either from the TV or remote except on and off. Can't change channels, volume or anything else.

Try changing the input device to something you are sure, works such as a DVD player. Look for any loose contacts in RC jacks/sockets/Cable. Look for jammed buttons on remote and/or on control panel. Try removing the batteries from remote and operating from the control panel of TV. If these are ok, Switch off TV manually, switch off power, remove plug and retry after 48 hours. If problem persists, please refer it to a qualified service technician.

    Hello Parasuraman, I had tried all of your suggestions with the exception of unplugging the TV. I will try that tonight and see if I have any success. Thanks for the feedback.

Check the remote control for its infrared emission. Check it with fresh batteries. If you wish to get more details about how to check a remote control, please visit this site. One among the posts has details about it. Surf the site with patience.

SOURCE: won't respond to volume or channel changes red light blinks 20x's when turned off.

It's definitely a firmware problem. I called Panasonic and they were very polite about the entire situation and sent me a SD card with the firmware update. If you don't have time and you're tired of listening to tv at the same volume there is a way to do a hard reset.

I figured that unplugging the unit would do this, but there is one other step that you have to do to ensure that this works.

Generally the power button on the tv is always in the "on" position, this is what allows the remote to work. In order to do a hard reset the on/off button must be in the off position. Make sure that is off, then unplug the unit, let it sit there for a minute or two and plug it back in. If the tv comes back on as soon as you plug it back into the wall/powerstrip then the button was not in the off position.

This isn't the best fix, you'll still need to get the firmware update but it will at least give you the ability to use your tv normally....well until it decides to randomly lock up on you again and you have to do this all over.

have Aiwa TV MODEL No. TV-A209
The problem that I am suddenly facing is that I can't change channels or volume or use any other function. I can't even turn it off with remote control.

Its stuck randomly on a particular channel that I was watching at that point of time.

Along with that channel it now shows a message in flashing red color that reads :-
AGING
O6895H

Now when I press ''Display'' button on remote control volume goes off and this code is shown :-
S123 K234 Y
000 001 1


The numbers in the second line can be navigated by ''CH+'' button and changed between 0 and 1 by ''Vol+'' button.

I really don't know anything about this. So, please help me out of this problem.

Panasonic Viera TH-50PX60U Plasma is stuck on one channel. Only the power function works on the remote and only the On/Off function works on the TV. Any ideas??


Forced to factory default: press and hold [VOLUME ( - )] on the TV and press [MENU] on the remote 2 seconds. Exit: Unplug Power to reset.
If it does not help, the main board need to replace. For further questions, please add your comment.
