My Plasma model # XXXXX 5N50A550S1F suddenly stopped working. It will not turn on. Checked outlet, fuse bow, cable, etc it is dead. Do I née a technician?
Hello, sorry to hear you are having this problem.

I can assist you but yes, it seems your Tv has an internal failure. Unplugging the power cord for a few minutes is the only thing you can do unless you want to open the Tv up, diagnose the failure, order and install parts. I am a technician and theoretically I could help you do that but there are no guarantees of the outcome and it would all hinge on your willingness and ability to use tools like a meter and solder. This can get very complex so I do not recommend it for someone who has no previous experience. If you decide to DIY, take the back off the Tv and reply here to get started.

If you cannot do this type of DIY work then you can find a trusted local repair shop by entering your zip code info here:
