Customer Question
I have a panasonic 1080i...
I have a panasonic 1080i HDTV. Everything has been working great ever since we bought the TV new several years ago. This morning, we can not turn it on with either the ON/OFF switch on the front of the unit or with the remote. There is power to the H1700 Monster Power Center. I paid about $375 for the TV. Any ideas about what's going on and whether it's worth fixing?

Hi and thanks for using JustAnswer!

In order for me to better assist you, can you tell me the exact model number of the TV? Also, are there any lights blinking on the TV? Maybe a green or red light? If so, is there a sequence to the blinking?

Please advise.

-Dan

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
