Hi all, came across this epic thread whilst looking for a solution to my all too common problem it seems!!
We own a Viera TH-50PZ70B which we've had from new in 2007 and hasn't given us any trouble before. Until yesterday. On pushing the power button and then channel button on the remote the screen remained black?
Now i've trawled back through this thread but i'm getting a bit lost with it all tbh!
Screen stays black on pushing power button, the red power light blinks when pushing the channel button on the remote but doesn't switch to green.
If i hold down a channel button on the remote then push the power on button on the tv the red will switch to green like it's going to come on but doesn't.
The batteries in the remote are new, and i've tried a spare remote with no luck. Left the tv switch off at the mains overnight as a last resort in case something had overheated but it's still the same.
I read about the power led flashing fault codes but mine doesn't seem to be doing that. It just rapidly blinks maybe 30-35 times before going back to solid?
Now as it's about 7 months outside of warranty and probably only worth around £300 is it worth me going to the expense of trying to get it fixed or is it only fit for the bin now?
I'm fairly competent with tools but as a mechanic normally used to working on cars... But if it's a simple case of swapping a power board or the like out then i may just give it a go.
ANY advice happily received as i don't fancy blowing myself up
Thanks in advance,
