Question about Panasonic TH-42PX60U Television
RED LIGTH FLASHES 5 TIMES
Initially, the standby light or the red light flashing indicating that the unit has switched to protection mode., the unit in its self diagnosis has detected a fault. In order not to extend the damage, the unit prevents itself from turning on. Eventually the unit has to be opened up for a look and see. This of course would require a fair familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and a soldering iron. It would be to your added advantage access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional or claim warranty repair.
Incidentally, in the hope that this is a simple glitch, perhaps you can try unplugging from the mains and removing all connectors. After an extended period, reconnect and verify connections and try again.
Additionally, was there anything out of the ordinary prior to the incident such as power failure/interruptions, thunderstorm, TV used for an extended period pf time, the remotes has been inadvertently played with, or anything noteworthy.
Or have you tried just running the Panasonic with all eternal devices others removed specially HDMI connections?
Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.
