Recently my TV will work for a short time and then turn off. The power (red) light starts flashing. I have to unplug the TV, plug it back in and then it works for a few minutes then will turn off again on it's own. Anyone have any ideas?
Check or have a repair tech check connectors AP1 and AP2. Vibration rattles the power supply board (a crappy design, as the board is almost "floating") and causes the wires in the connectors to break, and may make intermittent contact. Heat may also cause intemittent contact. A very common flaw.
I just purchased the TH-42PX75U. It would run fine for an hour, then shut off...I would unplug and re-plug..same story. After much chatting on Panasonics Help chat option...7 blinks means there is a component that is not operating properly. Seems to be a common problem with this particular TV based on my online research. Anyone have any suggestions to make it easier to put this thing back into that box??!!
