That sounds like an issue with the comcast box itself, is it all ports ? Seems strange it would work with one component and not the other. That makes me suspect either the cable or the component.

The port didn't matter, none of them worked with the Comcast box. The box worked fine with the new TV that he had bought, though, so I figure that should rule it out as being the issue. He even tried to piggy back the Comcast connection into the Xbox 1 and as soon as he did, the picture just dropped. I don't plan on having a cable box on this TV but I want to make sure there isn't some other issue at hand that could trickle down to the other boards. Might just pull the A board and send it to ModuslinkPTS to be on the safe side. My new neighbor works for an appliance repair company so maybe I can see if he can source a board. Can't hurt to ask.

Wish I could help you on that, but you never know. My 65VT30 had some HDMI issues and an A Board replacement fixed it up. Still holding strong in my Master Bedroom.

I hope you get it sorted out and I'm still enjoying mine. How much did you pay for it?

Thanks guys. I am going to pull the board today and ship it off to ModuslinkPTS for repair. I paid $1200 which I thought was decent for not having to drive far to get one. There were some other better deals out there, but it would have been a day or 2 of driving + hundreds in gas or a TON of shipping charges. The TV is mint otherwise, only 3300 hours, and has 3 pairs of 3D glasses so I was OK with the price.

No activity here in a while - will post to see if there is any response.

65-VT30 with no issues since original retail purchase. Last night while watching it the screen powered of and came back on about 20 seconds later. There red light did not blink - where should I start looking first?

My 65-VT30 is still working flawlessly and I've owned it for five years now. I hope it lasts forever! I hardly ever use the 3D functionality but I do watch Avatar in 3D once a year to make sure it's still working properly.

Same here (though I have the 55-VT30) and I bought mine in Dec, 2011. Almost at the 5yr mark and not ONCE has it gone out on me by itself and not ONE dead pixel ever. Only wish I had the 65-VT30 as I now moved into a larger place with a larger living room so now my 55" that looked BIG....looks small I thought about getting a 65-VT30 on Amazon or ebay and sell my 55-VT30 and it's also been calibrated for 2D & 3D by an AVS Forum member. Flawless indeed.

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?
