Troubleshooting a TV that will not power on just takes a few basic steps.


Verify power cable has not come loose by tracing it to the electrical outlet or surge protector into which it is plugged. Replug the power cable if it has come loose at all. Sometimes, TV power cables can also be unplugged from the TV itself. If your TV has this type of power cord also verify that it has not come loose from the back of the TV.


Plug the TV's power cord into a different slot on the surge protector or a different electrical outlet to test for a possible issue with the surge protector or the electrical outlet.


Contact Panasonic technical support or have the TV serviced if it still does not power on at this point.
