My TV wouldn't turn on and so I unplugged it, then plugged it in again. It turned on this time but now I have a distored screen. It seems a bit blurry, especially around the edges where there is also a rainbow glow. What happened and is it repairable?

seems like a power supply problem inside the tv and when the transformer gets warm it is giving you problems you might have to get a tech seviceman to come out and have a look at it as it is not a job you should do yourself when it comes to replacing the power supply hope all goes well
Also had the same problem with our Panasonic 50" Plasma...could not change the channel or the volume (with the remote control nor with the actual TV controls). Before I called for repair, I UNPLUGGED the TV and then plugged it back after a minute. I was surprised....the TV started working again. (Switching the TV on and off is not sufficient). I could change channels and volume, etc. So this saved me a repair this time. Might be worth trying this solution. Wouldn't hurt one bit, but rather save you a repair fee.
My son put a penny in the SD card slot of my Pansonic flat screen tv. I finally got the penny out but now the volume and tv controls do not work. I can change the channels through my cable box but that is it. The volume does not work on my cable remote or the flatscreen. What do you suggest I do to fix this problem?? Thanks, Josh
Sony tech support (no charge) said it was definitely not the lamp.
Their suggestion- By unplugging the TV for a minute then turning back on, the blue color was substantially but not toally reduced.
Perhaps there is an electrical charge building up distoring the color by having the TV in the ready mode for too long and by unplugging, the charge dissipates?
No other phone solution recommended other than calling for repairs.
your system control section has failed due to sudden power failure.

You first need to rplace the outlet if it sparks where the surge protector is plugged in as it should not spark for any reason. then you need to make sure thast its not the outlet causing your problem by running an long extensition corn or moving the set to a differant outlet.
