Question about Panasonic TC-P50U50 50" VIERA U50 Series 1080p Plasma HDTV w/ 2 HDMI

1 Answer

I have a Panasonic Model # TC-P50U50T and it will not turn on.

When I turn it on it goes right off with a eight blink stand by light. Can it be fixed and is it worth fixing.

These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/

SOURCE: 4 blinking lights

I fixed it myself!
I bit the bullet and ordered a replacement Power Board for AUS$290 and swapped it out myself.
Only took ten minutes, most of that time was removing and replacing the 101 screws holding the back panel on!
Working fine again now.
I did sit the two boards side by side and noticed the new one had moved some of the micro components from the back of the board to the front plus some other small component changes.
If your handy with a screw driver and have some technical knowhow I recommend having a go at fixing it yourself as it wasn't hard and probably saved $200 in service charges (all this assuming you are out of warranty!)

SOURCE: I have a Panasonic Model TC-P50S1 plasma TV and

Panasonic utilizes the blinking light as a form of self-diagnostics, similar to the "check engine" light in your car. If you've ever experienced that, you know that a check engine light could indicate anything from a loose gas cap to a major failure.

Panasonic uses the number of times the light blinks, to aid the technician in trouble-shooting the problem. The blinking light indicates an area of concern and helps the technician to isolate the problem and order the correct parts. This in turn speeds up the repair process, keeps parts cost down, and helps both you and the servicer by allowing the technician to complete a repair in one trip in most cases.
So contact an authorized service center.

Set wont turn on, stand by lights blinks 9 times


Have the same thing happening with ours... we were told by a repairman that it needs a new D Board. He told us that if we could fix the TV for under $500 that it was worth it, if not (which of course, we can't when you add in labor cost) don't fix it. I like the TV but I can buy a brand new flat screen for that!
Good Luck

Sony grand wega KF60DX100 Won't Power on


THE RED LIGHT THAT BLINKS IS IT THE LAMP BOX THAT THE RED LIGHT BLINKS IN OR THE STAND BY LIGHT THAT BLINKS ? IF ITS THE LAMP BOX THAT BLINKS THEN YOUR LAMP HAS BLOWN AND NEEDS REPLACED YOU CAN FIND THE PART # FOR YOUR T.V. FOR A NEW OR REFURBISHED LIGHT IN YOUR OPERATING MANUAL AND WITH THE PART # BUY A NEW ONE OFF EBAY,ALSO YOUR OWNERS MANUAL WILL GIVE YOU STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS ON HOW TO REPLACE IT AS THIS IS A COMMON PROBLEM WITH PROJECTION T.V.'S IF ITS THE STAND BY LIGHT THAT BLINKS I NEED TO KNOW HOW MANY TIMES IT BLINKS AS THAT'S A SELF DIAGNOSTICS CODE THAT YOUR T.V. IS GIVING FOR THE PROBLEM AND FOR SONY THERESE NO CODE FOR 1 BLINK OF THE STAND BY LIGHT.

No picture, standby light blinking


MOST LIKELY THE ERROR 3 IS THE 200V LINE TO THE CRT DRIVE IC.IC702. ON THE CRT PC BOARD. IT ALSO COULD HAVE GONE OUT IF YOU HAVE HEAVY USAGE ON THE SET 8-12 HRS A DAY. THE CTR COULD SHOT AND TAKE OUT THE I.C. AS FOR IS IT WORTH FIXING, THEY DON'T MAKE CRT TV'S ANY MORE AND THE NEW SETS SEEM TO HAVE A LOT OF PROBLEMS.
