It aint your fault mate. it happens :(

Not much to suggest really.

If you have no power light, check the fuse etc

the little power light is on -it flickers asi press the remote - but there is no picture or sound.

When i press the power button on TV, it sounds like it's turning on..............but again no picture or sound. i'm hunting for a rope and tree - advise ?

Thanks

Try pressing the AV button on the remote a few times.
You may have sky set up with the wrong input type.
Has it worked before or is it a new sky install?

Sky was working......i ment to switch to ordinary TV - i pressed AV - then screen went blank.

no sound or anything - turning the TV off isn't doing anything.

i can not bring up any menus from pressing the remote (but pressing the remote flickers the little red power LED) - i'm about to soil myself ! :eek: :oops:

Sounds a bit bleak mate :(
Sorry.

Let us know how you get on, if you survive :)

I'm sure they'll understand it's not your fault when you explain :smashin:

I just hope it's under warranty.

My sisters boyfriend sorted it.......................i'm most :censored: off, that someone who can't work a toaster, fixed it.

Oh pants !

And I was looking so forward to the rope & tree scenario :(

I've always thought about rope & loft. But knowing my luck I'd probably do it all wrong and end up coming through the bedroom ceiling & landing on top of my mother killing her instead !!! :rotfl: :rotfl: :rotfl:

Blimey, you're a bundle of joy :(

I know what you mean about bad luck though.
Barrel, boobs and thumb spring to mind :D

My understanding (as i was watching United V Watford, in a different room (whilst checking this tread for updates)) was this is resolved by holding the power button on the top left.
maybe it causes a soft re-set - i don't know, but it worked. :thumbsup:

as for the Rope & tree situation - knowing my look i'd have tied myself up by the ankles in mistake :)

Thanks to everyone for help and advice (even if some was, "look forward to the rope & tree", lol)

LOL. You mean it was put into standby then turned back on. ;)

Maybe not that simple lads. I had a panny do something almost identical. Holding down the power button on remote or even TV could not get this puppy to come back to life. Mine would power on for 1 sec no sound no picture and as the fans spun up then it would knock off and the power light would flash and if you pressed the remote then on the second press the TV would not recognise it. Tried everything :)

I will say again, on a properly functioning Panasonic plasma TV, if you hold down the power button it will keep turning the TV on & off. That is the way it works.
