    I have a 3 year old Panasonic THD-42PWD that last night suddenly flashed and went off.

    The standby red flight was flashing (rather than static like it normally is when its on standby) and I couldnt get it to switch on again with the remote.

    When I switched it on at the TV the screen came up but very faded (as if the contrast had been raised to its highest setting). There was also a high pitched whining.

    If I switched it off again at the TV and left it off for about 10 minutes and then switched it on again I am back to normal.

    Does anyone know what the problem is? I cant believe its the screen itself.....maybe the power supply or input board?

    Any help much appreciated as its just done it again.

    Sounds like the power supply board. They're quite easy to swap out (apparently).
