Ok so I've had my panasonic p46st30 for a while now--number of years maybe 3-4)--and it was working fine up till now. I've been combing and reading through the thread but apparently not many people had the same problem as mine and the ones that did their questions never got responded so I was wondering if anybody would be kind of enough to help me?

My tv now won't turn on at all--the display when turned on makes the usual 1 click noise when you first turn it on and then displays a black screen and stays there--with the red LED on the front bottom screen displaying power staying at a constant rate with no blinking. Whereas after this happens the remote doesn't work or respond to the tv, and also the buttons on the tv do not work at all--all buttons including the menu--yet the power on the tv is on. So I'm not sure if this is the A board or not?

Would somebody be kind enough to help me with this?

Thanks.

Sounds like it could be in locked mode, shorted Sc board would be high on the suspect list which can produce locked solid LED, no codes.

"Shutdown but No Blink code - Power LED stays on (Check for Shorted Vsus* / Vda** / P15V)."

"Red Solid LED (No Blink): LSI error. This condition is triggered when the power supply SOS-detect-signal is triggered during the startup process."


"These conditions can cause the TV to shutdown while the power LED stays on (Solid red)
New
1.
Over current condition detected by the power supply during start-up process.
􀂉
Shorted Vsus.
􀂉
Shorted Vda.
􀂉
Shorted P15V.
2.
Wrong diagnostic by the A board"


Also recommended to replace the SC mounting bolts with preferred bolts with flat washers and spring washers like they use to be as these new ones are not suited and work loose, create poor earths and arcing. you may find some loose on this board an the SS board on the other side.

you may find some more info on Badcaps.net Affects this whole series (2011) Sc board short is very common

ModuslinkPTS do rebuilds and Sd/SU boards need to be checked for shorts as well.

TX-P42S30B - 6 blinks

Hi,

I have a TX-P42S30B with 6 blinks.

I've found the ShopJimmy YouTube video for diagnosing the offending board BUT it's naturally for the US model.

My question is: do you think I can follow the diagnostic advice for my UK model?

Hi guys.

I have the 7 blinks problem on my ST30, i suspect it can be a problem with the A board because when the error happened the hdmi cable was folded on the conector. I think it might short the A board.

How can I check the A board? SAT ask me 300$ for that...

The service manual tells you how to test each board for specific problems. If you're good with a multimeter, it's probably not too hard to check. Was there any prior indication that something was wrong (loud buzzing, pink/purple IR and ghosting)? The SC, SD, SS, and SU board are a common problem on the 30 series and 7 blinks can indicate problems with them.

I'd be going down the Sc,SD,Su path first for a 7 blink. Not sure what you mean by cable folded on conector.

full model # would be handy for looking up the correct service manual. Sometimes it's possible to isolate all the boards to check if A board is triggering 7 blink but the other boards are more likely and 7 blink is common failure of this series as too loose mounting screws on the Sc and SS boards

Sorry for that, english is not my native language, what i tried to say its the hdmi connector was broke inside of the TV

I let a image i found on the web similar to what happened, except the connector got stuck on the TV.

Has anyone had problems with their Moduslink repaired boards? I had my boards repaired in January. They worked fine until 2 weeks ago when I got the 7 blinking lights again. I've tried contacting Moduslink several times over the last 2 weeks hoping they might help me out but I can't get a response from them. I was hoping for more than 3 months out of the repaired boards.

No problems with my Modus repaired boards yet, it's been about 2 months *knocks on wood*. When you reinstalled the boards, did you make sure to either use the updated screw kit or loc-tite (blue / medium) the original screws back in? Getting ready to send them the A board from my 65" VT30, hoping all goes well.

keep in mind panasonic designed these boards, modus repair the fault present. It's unfortunate but I do my own and have a 2 repaired board still working after 5 months.
