I started a separate thread, then I saw this livelier one come up; thought I'd post here too...
I'm not there to see it, but my friend's Panny TC-P50S30 was said to have gone black shortly after turning on.
Red light does come on upon powering up, no flashing. There was no other symptom, no "death throes". She tried disconnecting AC power for 10 minutes, no luck upon reconnecting. There is next to nothing in the manual on this.
Was bought in 2012. I know things break, but that seems a short life for a mature plasma product.
Anyway, I thought I'd check the knowledge base here to see if this was common for this model, and/or if there might be a quick, cheap, easy fix. Seems this is not a rare occurrence, having read back a couple pages in this thread. I don't mind taking a shot at repair.
Thanx in advance.
Oh by the way... anyone have a recommendation for a cheap-but-reliable multimeter?
