Top 20 Panasonic TH-42PWD3 42 in. Television Questions & Answers


Are you sure they are subtitles rather than closed captioning (if it is TV rather than DVD, it is closed captioning)?

If it is closed caption, pressing subtitle won't turn them off. If there is a button that says "Closed Caption" or "CC" press it. If not, press menu and look for the CC option (it should be under video or audio depending on the TV). Turn it off.

If you are watching a foreign language movie on TV (not DVD) it is likely hardsubbed (you can't turn the subs off because they are burned into the video).

You either have a bad Main board or simply a bad touch control button in other word one of your side buttons is defective and it is blocking any other signal to the main board, but usually its a bad main board. In some cases ther is a FIRMWARE update from Panasonic, you may want to call Panasonic or check there website for any type of FIRMWArE UPDATE.

These blinks (flashes) are fault indication. By the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit stage inside the TV. Count the blinks occur at one time switch ON, carefully. Do it once again, and make sure about the number of blinks. If the flashes are continious, non-stop, the main system control IC should be suspected. If you wish to get more details, check the site linked here. It has blinking codes detail to many brand TVs. Pull up older posts. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Check the site in 'Mosaic' view. It will make search easy.

Try disconnecting all of your HDMI cables and plugging the power cord of the TV into another wall outlet. If this resolves the issue, you may have had a small power surge from either your wall outlet or one of your source devices. It is recommended to connect your TV to a surge protector if you haven't done so already.

Check the signal cable, resolution of the source and input mode of the TV.

It will be better to replace the power regulator board to LCD TVs rather than trying to repair it. The repair charge and components cost might sometimes exceed than the price of a new one.

This is not an easy job, you need lots of space, time and patience, You need to remove the back of the tv and then you need to remove all the screws around the outside that hold the front on, You need to disconnect the speakers and front panel controls in order to remove the panel from the front bezel, Then you will see how the protective glass attaches, allow 1-2 hours and be slow and keep track of where everything goes, also be careful not to damage the circuit boards and be cautions as the boards can store high voltage.

Plasma TVs do run hotter than LED TVs. I suggest placing your TV into power saving mode which should reduce the heat.
