    I have an 18 month old Panasonic PW6 plasma, and everything has been fine up until a few days ago. Now when the plasma has been on for a while it will turn itself off and the power light will flash red.

    If it is turned off and then back on the plasma will make a slight squealing noise and show the picture very faintly, turn off and then back on the plasma again and then it will work from anywhere to 30 mins to a few hours.

    Any Ideas?

    possibly the dreaded PSU fault normally they just pop and flash standby light.....do you have any warranty? otherwise a call to Panny CS and very very nicely ask for a service call, if it is PSU board faulty there is a chance you may get it done FOC.

    Did ever Panasonic correct this problem in the late production line?

    What caused it? driving the panel too high with too high contrast?

    no idea what cuses it PSU is a cheap unit (the difference between every generation since 4 series is they have got cheaper components etc) not sure if it applies to 50" screens as much as they have always had the better quality components and higher res since the 5 series IIRC
