Having problems with your Flat Panel Televisions ?

Panasonic TH-42PX600U The set just quit. It won't turn on. I checked the power cord and it is fine. I took the back off and it appears the two fuses where the power comes in are blown. Ray [email protected]



Answers :

There are a lot of sets that do this and it has been attributed to bad capacitors.
\015\012One thing is for sure and that is that the power supply in your set is pulling too much current. You can see the information on bad capacitors here:
