Panasonic Plasma TC-P42C2 does not power up at all

by barryj341 / October 30, 2012 5:34 AM PDT

I have read other posts and they discuss blinking red lights, I have no power light at all. No indication the set is on. I have tested the outlet. The power button does not power up and the remote does not power up. I have unplugged the set wated an hour and plugged it back in, still nothing. Does anyone have a site I can go to for help or is the a class action against Panasonic or what part do I need to replace, HELP I will never buy another TV from Panasonic.....

Clarification Request
I think this model started shipping mid-2010

So the usual 2 year warranty may still apply. Your post seems to come out swinging which can send help away rather than to you.

I guess my frustration is showing, I need help, I didn't mean to scare off people, thanks for the advise. I have not been able to find my warranty but since you say there is a 2 year warranty I will look harder. Thanks

I think you should try AVSFORUM as well since there are more folk that dive into TV repairs. I'm an old hand at many electronic repairs but as I don't see a ready service manual could not supply that in a reply. Maybe someone at AVSFORUM has it.

Sorry about the come out swinging advice. That is, I usually get beat up for writing that but I think you get the idea and are ready to post again on the forum I noted.

Warranty Update

In reply to: Good to read this.

Well as luck would have it I found my purchase invoice and it is dated 10/2/10 but I did purchase the 2 year extended warranty. Unfortunately the company I bought the TV from (6th Ave Electronics) went out of business and so did my warranty.

Thanks for helping,l posting on AVSFORUM now looking for assistance.
