Received a panasonic th-42pz80u from my father in law. He said it did not work. I plugged it up and it worked for a few hours. Now I get nothing when I plug it up. Is there anything I can do to restore power for good?

Try using a different outlet, if that doesn't work see if you have another power cable that is the same power as the one on the T.V. and try that. If that doesn't work then there is probably a problem on the board near where the power plugs in. It could be fixed by a firmware update or it may need to actually be repaired.

It sounds like it's overheating. If you can put a small electric fan behind it and see if that fixes the problem.
My plasma has a regular box fan behind it to cool it off.

Panasonic plasma TH42PV8H blinks 12 times

This is an error code indicating failure of some board and might need attention by a qualified service technician. Switch off TV manually, switch off power, remove plug and retry after 48 hours.

I plug in my TH-42PZ80U and it doesnt turn on but a red light blinks ten times.

Apparently this common problem is due to a faulty power board. Contact Panasonic for a replacement if it's under warranty (hopefully) or a local repair shop. Good luck!

Screen has a long black line down the center.

I also have the TH42PZ80U and I just had the certified Panasonic repair person out. The problem is this is the THIRD time in two years. Any quesses on what's wrong? It's a bad panel, again. That's right, three bad panels in the two years I've own this tv. I am now one month out of the panel warranty and guess how much the bid is to replace the panel. $1542! I only paid $1300 for it. Panasonic better make this right. I think a whole new tv is in order just for my trouble. After reading about so many of us having this problem, we are probably getting close to a class action law suit.
