Red light blinks 9 times on Panasonic TH-42PZ77U

We were just watching tv last night and the tv suddenly turned off. the red light of doom at the bottom left hand corner of the tv seems to blink 9 times and then pauses, 9 times and then pauses.

it can't be the surge protector, because everything else plugged into the surge protector still works.

we also completely unplugged the tv for a half an hour, just in case it was over heated or something, but when we plug it back in, the blinking resumes.

help!

    Our TV did the same thing--suddenly turned off and the red light continues to blink even if the TV is unplugged. The electronics store personnel don't know why it happened or how to fix it and think only a technician can fix it.

Hello, panasonic plasmas have a safety shut down circut to protect the main panel when a short is present or internal circut panel is non functional some info i found in the service manual for 10th generation plasma
if your tv is still under warantee take advantage of the pany free service other wise it is a matter of exchanging the defective board then you will need electronic skills for this repair if you plan to do it yourself. it would be wise to have a skilled tech check it out and give you a estimate there are some techs that will come out and check it for free and give you a repair price.

here are some repair manual tips for blinking panasonic .. i didnt find 9 blinks on this manual i may be using a different manual but these are panasonic plasma blinking fault tips for 10th gen
becuase all models have different blinking codes you may need the model specific service manual

for 10th gen model some models 2008,2007,

8 Blinks SOS:
Pin 91 of the MPU IC9003 monitors the status of the SS board. During normal operation, pin 8 of connector SS23 outputs a low to pin 91. If the SS board becomes defective, a high is provided to pin 91. As a result, the unit shuts down and the power LED blinks 8 times.

9 blinks panel config sos

10 Blinks SOS:
The SUB5V and DT9V sources created on the A board are monitored by IC1100. If they are not present at pin 30 and 34, the MPU shuts down the unit. The power LED blinks 10 times.

10 Blinks SOS:
The F_STB_15V of the P board, as well as the derived SUB5V and DT9V sources are monitored on the A board for excessive current. If a short circuit is developed in one of the supplied lines, pin 114 of IC1100 receives a high. The SUB5V and DT9V lines are also monitored for excessive voltage. When an over-voltage condition is detected, a high is also output to pin 114 of IC1100. The DT9V is provided to a DC/DC converter to create the BT30V for the tuner. If the BT30V becomes excessive, a high is output to pin 114 of IC1100. A high at pin 114 of IC1100 causes the unit to shutdown and the power LED to blink 10 times.

hope this helps..

Watching dvd, great pictue and all of a sudden black out


7 Blinks is the failure of the SC/SU/SD PCB's (1 2 or 3 depending on how lucky/unlucky) you are.

Panasonic have a great warranty usually. Give them a ring, it has failed.

The flashing LED is the fault code.

10 blinking light.


It is called mainboard and is the one where you plug your video (HDMI,component) cables if you want to order a new one you need your product code, it is located in the back of the TV, same place as the serial number.
