This means you have to go inside and see what your Power Board looks like-
We can do some simple tests to narrow it down.
Do you want to repair yourself?

Hi I've had my consumer unit cut my power and my Panasonic 50 inch plasma Vieira now will not turn on, I've tried the 60 sec power button then switch on but no joy!!, is there another way to override and get the tv to work ??.

Are you stuck in red standby power light?
Try these resets-

If you have a Cable Box, Unplug Box, hold the Power Button on box for 5 seconds, plug in turn on--
TV Reset-
Try this twice--
Unplug TV from wall plug for 10 minutes, then press and hold power button on TV for 60 seconds--Plug in turn on--
Reset-
Press and hold both 'vol' (+) and 'menu' on TV side panel.
Continue hold while pressing and releasing 'power' on the panel. Release the hold after a count to 5.
If you have no menu button use- ( input and volume up ) or try holding the volume and menu buttons after pressing power button, for TV to come on

There is one step you can take here, both as a possible fix, as well as a diagnostic evaluation
1) Unplug the power cord from the TV.

2) Wait at least 1 hour (60+ Minutes)

3) Press and hold the power button (on the set, not the remote) for 60 seconds
4) Keep holding power button while plugging back in, and for another 60 seconds after. When plugging back in, go directly to the wall outlet, bypassing any power strips or surge protectors.
or this---
1. Hold [menu] and [vol-] button on the side of the TV
2. while holding these, press the [power] button on the side of TV (NOT remote)
3. blue light comes ON and stays ON
4. wait 10 seconds then let go of [menu] and [vol-]
5. wait another 30 seconds and some type of picture should appear

Unplug the TV power cord from the wall socket. Press and hold the power button on the TV for 10 seconds. Plug the TV back in and turn the TV on with the TV remote

Also-
Leave plugged in, hold the power button, for 10-15 seconds, then unplugged it, waited a min, plugged TV back in, turn on

Let me know if these resets work.

This has been happening to us with our viera tc-p42x5 panasonic plasma for years. We came across your post with hopes that this would resolve the issue. Sadly it still doesn't work for days.

Tried following ur guideline to no avail. Even tried 2 different ways. Will wait 24 hrs n see if it will turn on or not. As I turned the t.v. on the power outage happened. Also it was plugged in on power surge. Only had the tv for 5 yrs. Should not break so soon. Any other suggestion beside waiting 24 hrs?

I have the same TV
TC-P42X5 bought it new a few years back it's very touchy when it comes to a powersurge of any kind.
When it's on unplugging or power flickers in a storm.
I let it sit unplugged
a day or two and that works for mine. I will try the reset next time never know.
good luck

Should have gone to specsavers!
How can you say best picture when in brightly lit frames the whole screen dims. They're one of the worst pictures I've ever seen. Get your self a decent LED or OLED TV, then you'll know what good picture quality is.

Tried both ways and still nothing. I even waited 90 mins. Not sure what to do at this point. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Thanks

Get a new power supply unit fitted professionally. It's the only way.
