I've done a visual inspection after taking the back panel off, I was hoping it was just a leaking capacitator but they all look fine. Now I'm stuck. Any advice or suggestions?
I see that your plasma is roughly 8 years old, I would take it to a TV repair shop and get an estimate, it could be something cheap but considering your tv is so old, the part might not be available anymore. Does it perform the same way with all your components? Or just your cable, if its just your cable it could be your box not the tv. If its with all your sources ,DVD etc than it's your tv. Otherwise it's a good excuse to get a new one, they are so affordable these days now anyways. Good luck.
