Question about Panasonic TH-42PD50U 42 in. Plasma EDTV

10 flashing lights and no power; What is the problem and can I fix it?

I have the Panasonic 42inch TH-42PD5OU and I bought it 2 years ago. The TV shut down yesterday and is not coming back to life. It has 10 FLASHING LIGHTS next to the power button. I called a repair store and they said it most likely was a problem with the power supply and needed to be replaced for 800.00-900.00 dollars. What is the 10 flashing lights indicate? Can I order the needed part on my own? Can I replace the part on my own? I have read that these TV's are notorious for having this issue, please help. Thanks You Eric

    Arpi,

    I do not know what the DT board is or how to access it. Where can I find information (i.e. from you or a repair manual) on how to correctly disconnect this part.

Hello, there is a problem with DT board. In order to pinpoint the error please disconnect the DT board. If the set powers up (starts-up) with the DT board disconnected please replace the DT board. If you need more info please advice. Arpi

Panasonic th-50pz800u shuts down and i can not turn back on, red light flashing 2 times, sometimes 10 times


Good day!!!


That problem is usually cause of faulty capacitors on the power supply board..

Just follow this instruction to fix your TV..

1. Open the back cover of your TV.
2. Look at the power supply board..Its normally connected to the power cord..
3. After that,,try to look at the actual image of capacitors if it is bulged on the top so that you can easily determine the bad capacitors..
4. After that,,try to replaced the bad capacitors using soldering iron and soldering lead..replaced the capacitors only with the same type ratings and value..
5. Some of the capacitors not bulged so its better if have a capacitance meter

Panasonic th-50pz80 10 flashing blinking red lights


The way to solve the problem with the TH-50PZ80U blinking light problem is to not buy Panasonic Products. I have had my TV about 21 months and it has started with the blinking light problem, just out of warranty. Panasonic is aware of this problem and refuses to do recall or fix the tv unless you are within the warranty or have bought the extended warranty. Legally they are within their rights, but I am also within my rights to air my complaint and inform others of this below par product. Who wants a TV that they have to unplug for a while and pug it in again for it to work. I want to push the power button and it come's on. I will never purchase another PANASONIC PRODUCT.

Red light flashes 10 times - Panasonic TH-42PX6U


hey there! i finally figured it out!! If you have a computer hooked up with the HDMI cable in the back of the TV and the computer is either on screen saver mood or sleep mood then it is trying to make the television go to sleep aswell. So the only way you can have a computer hooked up to the TV is if you use the front HDMI hook up. pretty weird but thats what was wrong with mine. Hopefully that was the problem :):)
