I had the same issue twice with a TH 42PWD5. turns out it was my UPS that was killing the switching power supply. Warranty covered it but when I removed the UPS not a single issue in 3 years.

SOURCE: red light flashes 10 times - Panasonic TH-42PX6U

hey there! i finally figured it out!! If you have a computer hooked up with the HDMI cable in the back of the TV and the computer is either on screen saver mood or sleep mood then it is trying to make the television go to sleep aswell. So the only way you can have a computer hooked up to the TV is if you use the front HDMI hook up. pretty weird but thats what was wrong with mine. Hopefully that was the problem :):)

SOURCE: Flashing red light 7 times on our panasonic th-42pz700u

hello you have what you call a "shut down circut" it is for safety and when one of the internal boards gets shorted or is not working properly, service doc reads as follows

7 Blinks SOS:
Pin 93 of the MPU IC9003 monitors the status of the SC, SU, SD board. During normal operation, the photo-coupler PC6480 outputs a low to pin 93. If the SC, SU, or SD board becomes defective, a high is provided to pin 93. As a result, the unit shuts down and the power LED blinks 7 times


thiera blinking 7 times is cuase by a fualt in sc,su,sd boards

SOURCE: TV Screen Stripes

NOt very clear.....

Multiple stripes all over the screen? Vertical or horizontal?

If it's only like an inch vertical lines put a mark on the cabinet where exaclty the line is, turn off the TV then open the back, you'll see lots of ribbon wires (gold color) from the plasma panel it self going to buffer boards, using the mark find the closest ribbon wire where the line is showing then remove and clean the contacts, make sure to reseat it properly when putting it back otherwise you'll just add more lines or black bar on the screen if pins are not seating properly.
But do not be afraid if the lines get worst just turn the power off right away and reaset the ribbon wire till you get it correctly.

CAUTION;
DO NOT try to do this while the TV is on oherwise you'll burn COF (Chip on film) on the panel and you'll end up replacing the whole PDP.

Good luck!

usually not very cost effective to replace the front screen. id say around 70% of what you paid for the tv.

Your TV is showing symptoms of power supply failure. It needs to be repaired or replaced. The remote has nothing to do with the power supply problem

The factory diagnostic for an 8 blink error code is: Driver SOS 3 SS-Board / SS2-Board; SS FPC Detect; SS Energy Recovery Circuit. Basically it means that the current absorbed by the X-Sus board is too high. It looks like this

You will need to open the tv and check the connections to this board and all the components on it. Also check the filtering capacitors from the power output line that powers this board.
If you can't find anything wrong then the entire board will have to be replaced.

How do i replace the backlight on a Panasonic TH-42px75u?


Plasma displays do not have backlights. The ionized gas (plasma) in the pixels is the light source, just like a tiny neon light. If your screen is dim or blank, check the high voltage supply that ionizes the gas.

No picture power button blinks


We cleaned the dust off the fans and TV now works fine. Hardest part was getting the TV down and the back off to get to them. Thanks.

Flashing RED lights in Panasonic TVs means a fatal error code. Unplug the TV, wait 1 minute and replug. If the LED still flashes it needs professional service.
