Looking for some troubleshooting help on my 50" Panasonic Plasma.
Model Number: TC-P50G25
Manufactured Date: September 2010
Connected Devices: PS3, Apple TV, AT&T Uverse, Panasonic Sound BarProblem:
We've been experiencing sporadic power problems for about a month. Sometimes the unit wouldn't power on after being shut down. Sometimes the unit would power back on after several tries, but not have audio. Sometimes the unit would power back on only after killing the power for 5-10 minutes. etc. The power and audio issue was too random to pin-point anything in particular. I'm a bit suspicious of the HDMI 1 (ARC) port. This was connected to the Panasonic Sound Bar which appeared to quit talking to the TV all together.
Part of what's baffling me is the blink code. It blinks with about a 2-3 second gap, but doesn't stop (20+ blinks). I can't match the code to any of the codes I've found listed online.What I've tried(Multiple Times):
- Disconnecting All Devices (Problem Still Exists)
- Disconnecting Power for 5-10 Minutes (Problem Still Exists)
- Self Check + Factory Reset (Problem Still Exists)
The Self Check indicates that everything is OK, however at the very bottom of the self check, it indicates an SOS: 01. I can't seem to find any specific fixes for SOS: 01 online.
I'm mildly skilled with electronics. I was able to remove and solder in a new capacitor on my 40" Samsung (Which I'm running untill I can get my Panasonic working properly). I'd rather figure out how to repair on my own vs. a costly repair from a repair company. I'm not opposed to buying a few tools (e.g. voltage tester) if need be to further troubleshoot.
Can anyone point me in the right direction?
