Hello

Welcome

Likely to be either the power-board OR one of the scan boards this symptom is very common with plasma sets , what needs to be done is to verify which board is bad by using a volt/ohm meter so if you think you can do work yourself with the set please let me know cost of a board(s) would be around $100_$150, given the age of the set either a do it yourself repair OR a tech repair may not be an option however if you think otherwise I will be happy to help.

If you decide you want to use a tech www.tvrepairpros.com will locate a tech in your area

Let me know if you want to go ahead or need more help
