Panasonic th-50pz80 10 flashing blinking red lights
I just purchased the tv, cables hooked to tv, everything goes throw the rcv'er hdmi out to the tv.
Problem is when I turn on the tv with HDMI cable plugged into hdmi 1 or 2 I get blink flashes of 10 times then blank and restarts again but NO power on.
At first I thought it might be the cable but then I plug into HDMI 3 upfront everything works great. problem is I want all the cables in back of tv...
What can cause this problem? The rcv'er is a onkyo
Re: panasonic th-50pz80 10 flashing blinking red lights
The way to solve the problem with the TH-50PZ80U blinking light problem is to not buy Panasonic Products. I have had my TV about 21 months and it has started with the blinking light problem, just out of warranty. Panasonic is aware of this problem and refuses to do recall or fix the tv unless you are within the warranty or have bought the extended warranty. Legally they are within their rights, but I am also within my rights to air my complaint and inform others of this below par product. Who wants a TV that they have to unplug for a while and pug it in again for it to work. I want to push the power button and it come's on. I will never purchase another PANASONIC PRODUCT.

are you using a PC to feed a signal or maybe a cable with an adapter? I had the same issue when I used one of the rear HDMI ports to show a PC display. Apparently there is a software difference between the rear and side/front ports. Inputting the PC through the side HDMI port has solved the problem for me (so far!)
On a Panasonic TV the 10-blink error code can sometimes be caused by low voltage running through an HDMI cable, particularly from a Media PC or some video game consoles. Try disconnecting any HDMI cables and unplugging the Television for 30 seconds, then power it on without the cables attached.
If this works, connect the cables to the front panel (usually HDMI-3) which uses a different controller board.
I just bought a Panasonic TH-42PZ800U and had the same problem. 10
blinks and the TV would not start. Then after some trial and error I
solved the problem!
Here is my (apparent) observation and solution:
I had only one input into the TV, which was my HTPC connected via a
DVI-to-HDMI cable plugged into the Panny's HDMI 1 slot. *IF* the HTPC
was already on, then the Panny would have the blink of death. *BUT* if
the HTPC was off, the Panny booted fine (assuming I cleared the blink
of death first by powering off the HTPC, unplugging the TV, and
replugging the TV back in with the HTPC still off).
My solution was to move the HDMI cable from slot 1 to slot 3. After
making this one change, everything worked as it should. No more 10
blinks of death. I could even leave the HTPC on and turn on the TV
last, and it still worked. Tried this 10 times, worked 10 times.
I don't know if this will solve other people's problems, but I hope it
at least provides some clues. I wonder if this is a fundamental circuit
design flaw on the part of Panasonic, rather than a "bad batch of

You have the same problem i have. My Tv just did the same thing 3 nights ago. I unplugged the set, and let it sit ofr about 6 hours, and then tried it again. It turned on and played, but repeated the problem after about 20 or 30 minutes. So far all my research has led me to believe that its a power supply issue. Problem is, there are 5 boards in the tv with seperate pwer supplies, and the 10 red flashes indicate that its all of them. :-(. Im shopping for a new TV, and It wont be a panasonic this time.
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 :):)
