I have a Panasonic Smart TV- Model number - TH-L55DT60A

Customer Question
Hi - I have...

Hi - I have a Panasonic Smart TV- Model number - TH-L55DT60A Serial Number - MN3250161 that is not working properly. When I turn the TV on a picture will attempt to appear on the bottom half of the tv (horizontally) for about 5 seconds them the TV will switch itself off. I guess the question I'm asking is - Is this a typical symptom of this model? and is it worth fixing the TV or is it best to purchase another one? Many thanks

Technician's Assistant: What Panasonic model do you have? How old is it?

Panasonic Smart TV- Model number - TH-L55DT60A Serial Number - MN3250161 . its about 5ish years old

Technician's Assistant: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?

I can't get a screen to turn on property to see if the menu will work.
