    Know where I can get a service manual?

  • ginahill742 Feb 07, 2009

    The service manual states when the red light blinks 6 times the problem is in the "sc energy recovery circuit". Which board is that?

    Sorry about the first rating. I tried to upgrade it. Not sure if it helped. Well back to the tv. The service manual says 6 blinking light means there is a problem with the scan driver "sc energy removery circuit". Which board is that.

Most of the time when this happens it is the ysus board, that noise you heard was a capacitor popping. Another board runs about $175 and thats if you do it your self. A shop will most likely charge around 500-600, hope this helps, you could also try contacting panasonic and trying to get past the tech and onto casemanagement where you might get somewhere with an out of warranty fix.

My panasonic is not coming on,the power button is just flashing red(TH-42px50u)

Count how many times it blinks. Sometimes the problem is coded in the amount of times it blinks. If you see a distiction between blinks, say like 13 then a pause then back to 13 more blinks, google solutions for a 13 blink standby for your tv and you might be able to find the soultion.

Following a audible pop TH 50PZ85U will not power on.

Most common thing to happen is a capacitor went bad on one of the circuit boards making the loud POP sound. Odds are it's on the Power Supply Board if the TV isn't showing power at all. The picture below what a bad capacitor looks like.

They range from different sizes and color. Swollen, deformed, and raised top is the thing to look for.

Solder in a new capacitor on the board or replace the whole circuit board.

The TV shut off, made a popping sound. The

Power board short and bad capacitor blown, capacitors usually pop because of shorted or open rectifiers and linear devices that warp inside. This happens due to excessive heat exposure from the current draw. Bad diodes and FET's are usually the root cause as to why capacitors bulge then eventually pop. This means the the x-y sustain boards are not getting their supply voltage resulting a no picture....

The red light flashes an error code for a technician to read, the tv is in protection mode to prevent further damage. Get it serviced at your local repair center or take it back if its under warranty.....
