Question about Panasonic TH-42PWD6UY 42 in. HD-Ready Plasma Television
My 42" Plasma TV has always been plugged on the outlet. Today, I found there was no red light on the TV. I tried to unplug and re-plug, there was no power come to the TV set. I don't see there is any place for fuse replacement or other opening that I can check. Any suggestions?
You have burned an internal fuse on the main power board. There are 2 right next to where the main power line plugs in ( after the noise filter ). Yes, you will have to unscrew the rear plate to get to it ( about 24 screws ). You just follow where the lead goes from the plug - you will see where the fuses are - right next to where the plug mounts to the power board. To check this set your meter to ohms and check for continuity - odds are one of the two fuses is done. THIS IS A PANASONIC SPECIFIC FUSE - it cannot be replaced with one that looks like it or fits the same slot. This fuse is a time-delay slow burn fuse and replacing it with anything other than the correct type will cause more damage and possibly total the unit. The panasonic part number is K5D802BNA005 and is available from several parts retailers - just google "panasonic part K5D802BNA005" and many reputable firms will come back on the search. They cost approx. $1.95 US ( so the shipping is probably 7.00 more ) Hope this helps and be careful of the internals and static electricity from your body.

If you have blinking lights or no lights or steady red light this is a power problem the best solution is to get a service manual for your set and find the symtoms and there is usually a trobleshooting guide for the repair in the service manual a steady red light means the p a board needs to be checked or replaced blinking lights can mean a fuse is blown or a board may be bad no lights may mean bad connection bad power unit or fuse before you start guesing or calling expensive repair company do your research find a service manual and if you really can handle this fix then you can get a used non working tv and switch out the parts with out spending a fortune..most people break the screens so theres plenty of lcd's being sold as is for parts try ebay or craigslist ..
hope this helps

The fuse is located on the inside of the tv. you have to remove the the rear panel as if repairing.

A blown internal fuse would cause things to appear completely dead. It is not intended to be user serviced. If you do find a blown fuse, never replace it with a larger size. Using an oversized fuse may cause additional damage. If the same size blows again there is some sort of fault, typically something like a shorted diode, electrolytic capacitor, or switching transistor.
There could be more than one fuse. Sometimes there is one on the AC power coming in, and one or more on various outputs from the main power supply. The AC line fuse may fail simply from a nasty surge coming down the power line. Other fuses usually blow from internal faults.
The main page for this site suggests there are service manuals here. I haven't seen any. They'd be very helpful to someone like me that understands electronics. They're generally beyond what end-users can understand.

JoeJoe206, your problem sounds the same as what just happened to my FWD-42PV1, which was 2 months past its warranty. When i plug it in, the green light goes on and i get clicking every few seconds for about 15 seconds, then it gives up and just goes to red. The picture never comes on. There was a pretty detailed diag manual i found online that indicated that it is most likely the A board or the G board (the power board) but the troubleshooting section looked translated from Japanese. Both A and G boards are pricey boards ($400/$550). If you find anything interesting, drop me a line at markahlady -at- yahoo.

Try plug it somewhere else in the room or plug something that you know works in the outlet where the tv was plugged to make sure there is current

If you are under warranty and have a TV over 32", then they should come to you and repair it. Call the help line and they'll set it up. It could take a week for a local tech to make it.

DO NOT BUY GATEWAY LCD TELEVISIONS.
China does not supply any service manuals to the usa. The technical department at GATEWAY do not have any manual are
very poor technition help.

I had the exact same problem and had to return the unit for repair. After examination I was told it was a power supply and they would fit a reconditioned (as they don't make new ones! ) for $750 AU.
Several visits to my home, the repairer, angry phone calls and about 10 weeks without a working TV and I got the unit back. The power works fine but after several weeks I am seeing white snow appearing on the screen !

There are a couple of possibilities here. If the set is indead dead,
the most likely culprit is the "standby" transformer. If you are
getting a click followed shortly thereafter by another click, then the
TV is detecting a problem and shutting down to prevent further damage.
And if you get no clicks or anything at all, I would suggest you to look at the fuse and the standby transformer. The standby transformer is a small transformer that supplies 5V to the system even when off to allow remote control. You need to see if the primary side of this transformer is open or not. You should have 5V.
