Try changing the input device to something you are sure, works such as a DVD player.

Switch off TV manually, switch off power, remove plug and retry after 48 hours.

If problem persists, please refer it to a qualified service technician.

Check your input to the TV, and if possible connect it to a different TV and then try connecting a different input to your TV. If nothing works, the TV has developed some internal problems. This is then a case to be handled by a qualified service technician.

If you have tried using different input devices, looked for loose contacts
in power outlet, RC Jack, cable and connectors, the TV might need service. Also look for any jammed buttons on remote.

Before making voltage tests etc---Unplug the set, a box or receiver if in line----leave them disconnected from power for a while and plug back--allows the unit/s to try to reboot.

If you have OSD it if the set could be the main board or even the power board causing this.

Check whether the mute function is set to On. If not, check its speaker and audio output card.

The problem might be in the input cable connector, if it is same in all channels or in some channels. After making sure there is no lose contact in the connector, if the problem persists, there is a problem in the tuner/if section of the TV. (May be a leaking or burst capacitor!)

Just called Panasonic to inform them I had the same problem. I was told by the rep that this is not an issue that they will address as this is a third party site and anyone can post whatever they feel. She had a very condescending attitude and said since their site didn't have any info on this trouble they would not stand behind their product. Panasonic has lost a customer and I will be sure to tell everyone that will listen to stay away from that company. This is the second major issue I have had with this TV in the 4 yrs I have owned it. The rep said what she could do for me wa to have one of their sales people call and offer me a "loyalty discount"........yea ok.

The set uses two boards to drive the screen --one for each half or side.

Different names are used like sustain or in LCD sets inverter.

CAPACITORS ARE THE MOST COMMON PROBLEMS WITH PANASONIC POWER SUPPLIES. THESE CAPACITORS EITHER BLOW UP ,CRACK OR BULGE ON THE TOP... IF YOU SEE ANY OF THESE REPLACE THEM... YOU CAN PUT A LITTLE HIGHER VOLTAGE TO KEEP THEM FROM FAILING BUT DO NOT CHANGE THEIR VALUETHIS IS THE CAUSE FOR NO PICTURE ONLY A BLINKING LIGHT ON YOUR TV BUT NOTHING ELSE.

Most of these snap together in the middle all the way around.

IF YOU GET it apart wash the mat with all the buttons with dishsoap and rinse---use no chemicals to clean it===consists of circuit board, mat with all the buttons, front and rear covers and batteries.

Usually when one button or a few cease to function something got spilled and got under the rubber like mat.

Let me know if questions--have fixed several hundred remotes including one I dropped into a glass of Iced Tea.

Hello,
The issue you describe is consistent with a power supply board issue. This is the board where the AC goes to. This problem may have occurred as a result of irregular power supply, or excess power supply or power surge.
The TV is receiving current but cannot circulate or transfer the current to other necessary part of the TV because of the defective power supply board. You might be lucky it's just a blow fuse. Also a defective transformer can cause your TV not to power on.
All these can be checked on the power supply board.
But more often bad capacitors causes problem on the power supply board. I do not think the power board needs replacement, rather those defective capacitors is causing this issue. Open unit up and take a look at the power supply board.You will probably see one or more electrolytic filter capacitors that are bulged up in the top-not perfectly flat like the others.
The value of these capacitors will be different, most likely they will be somewhere around-820 to 2200uF/25 V( or /10V sometimes)
You can replace them with same values but I would recommend the voltage rating to be higher(like 35V for an original 25V) for reliability purposes.
What happens is,these bulged top capacitors will cause a low and unfiltered DC voltage=main board will malfunction(the relay will keep clicking until the caps are holding enough charge to bring the voltage up over a threshold point).
You can buy these capacitors at any Fry's or Radioshack store or you can order them online at vendors like "mcmelectronics.com"(look for electrolytic capacitors). After replacing these capacitor(capacitors) most likely the normal operation will be restored. Or you can by a refurbished complete power board to save you some stress.
Note: There may be also some other causes for this symptom ,like a defective T con board ,or main board,but the bulged top capacitors are the most common cause for this issue.
If you don't know about TV repairers, take the TV to the nearest repairman to fix the fault for you. Also, note that TV stores a lot of current, so wait a while before opening the TV back cover.
I hope this helps.
Good luck
