I hope I placed my inquiry in the right place. I'm trying to figure out what is wrong w/ this panasonic tc-p42g15. I have taken some voltage readings and have a few question I hope somebody could help w/.
First off here are the symptoms when plugging in the tv you hear a relay click. when you try to power the unit on the red LED beside the power button comes on and stays solid, after a few seconds the panels backlight will come on and go right back off, and the LED never changes/blinks, and you can't power down the tv w/o unplugging it.
The measurments I've taken so far....
TPVSCAN--46.2 @ Grnd Base
TPSOS7--1.3Mv had some fluctuation but held at 1.3 eventually
I've put the result that I don't know if they are correct or not in Orange.
The voltage from the P board to the SS @ P11 is correct VSUS and the 15v.
At P2 going from P board to the SC-the VSUS voltage is there.
One thing I'm not sure about is at P25 connector at the "top" #1 I get 5v and on the next #2 I get 15v which is right. But after that #3 to the end of the connector approx 8-10 wires I don't know what the voltage should be if any.
Also coming into the unit from the AC plug, the live and neutral sides each has their own fuse "f601, f602" from the it goes to a zdiode z601 and a cap c601---at this point the circut continues on, but @ cap 601 there is another diode 602 to a "bulb" of some sorts a601 to ground. My question is what is this bulb? Is it gas filled? I didn't see a filiment in it.
Srry for the lengthy post, just trying to include any helpful information. I would like to know what else I should be testing or looking for, and any information or advice is much appreciated.
