I currently have a TC-P60ST30 in my living room that I purchased in 2011 and a now broken TH-58PZ800U in my bedroom that I purchased in 2008.
Unfortunately, the 5-year old TH-58PZ800U made a loud pop before immediately shutting off and producing a 4 blink code. After unplugging it and plugging it back in, there wasn't any blinking lights until I pressed the power button which resulted in a 2 blink code. I tried following the troubleshooting guide on Youtube.com using the compressed air to cool the two 15v chips but it still wouldn't turn on.
How much money, if any, would you spend on the TH-58PZ800U to repair it before putting the money towards a TC-P60ST60 or a TC-P60VT60?
How does the TH-58PZ800U and TC-P60ST30 compare with the newer models like the TC-P60ST60 and TC-P60ST60?
Thanks for the help!
