Question about Panasonic Viera TC-P58S1 58 in. Plasma HDTV
I also had the 7 blinking lights and no picture on my TCP55GT30 16 month old TV. The diagnositics show a bad SC board. Panisonic will cover the cost of the board only. The $350 labor charge is mine to eat. I spoke to Panisonic and they basically don't care. They know they have a problem but aren't willing to accept it and recall the boards or cover the total repair cost. So for me I think the cost (25% of the total cost of the TV) on top of what I already paid for the TV is rediculous. This was supposed to be a state of the art, top quality TV, which it obviously is not. My $300 Emerson flat screen, 4 yr old TV work just fine. I wil never buy another Panisonic product in my life time. I understand that things go wrong with anything, but the difference is how the company handles the problem. Oh yeah, my brothers did the same thing at 12 months. Real quality.

hello, you have a either your su, sd or sc boards fualty and it is a driver sos1 thats what the manual reads the best thing to do if your not electronically inclined or able to fix it is to get a service manual and make sure it is for your specific model and size you will find what the 7 blink codes mean, on my side i have a 42 in pana the service manual for this set and your is similar so since it is not the same model i cant tell you exactly what the truoble is but your best bet is to find a service manual find the 7 blink fualt then without getting ripped off you will know what the service man needs to do if you dont know or cant replace the parts yourself that is besides having to download firmware from your computer to a sd card and update your set but you need to solve the blinking code first it may solve the entire issue. the tv should come on when you resolve the blink codes or replace the fualty board or boards

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 :):)

seven blinks on this model is the SC board. it will need a new SC board and the software update for the new board. usually only authorized servicers have the software need to do the upgrade. but if you were to contact panasonic then they might be able to have it fixed for you for free since this was a defect in manufacturing. of course this depends on how long you have had the tv.

Usually seven blinks indicates a Y sustain problem. Its either the Y sustain pcb and/or the buffer boards. I would highly recommend calling an authorized service center for this if you don't know what you are doing.
