SOURCE: Fault code F498 on panasonic
as far as i understand, it is caused by dry joints - poor workmanship. Try taking the top off and pressing down on right-hand side the green circuit board with the dvd in standby. Then switch on. If that works then what i did was to take all the screws out and jiggle it then put all screws back except the one to the left of the board, next to the brown board. seems to work now. Tip found on another forum, no credit to me

F498 is a communication failure between DVD and Main micro. The only solution would be to resolder flash ROM on DVD PCB . If that does not work, you need to replace DVD pcb. However, 99% of the time resoldering would fix the problem.It's a job for an engineer with smd reflow equipment.The solder to the Flash ROM IC37001, needs to be reflowed.If it still won't power up, the decoder pcb. would be the next suspect.If you have electronics repair experience and would be able to do the repair, revert and i would be able to send you a link to buy service manual that would be required and would be able to add few more details.
Let me know,if needed further assistance.
Hope i helped you.
Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
