Hi , I`m Jack
Perhaps I can help you with this problem , a few questions coming up and please note that it may take a few minutes between replies;

A 42" Panasonic tv made in 2007 has 90% chance of being a plasma tv .

Usually the model number would start with the letters TH-P then the screen size as in TH-P42....... in your case.

If you cannot locate the model number on the back , can you confirm it is plasma ?
