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 :):)

One of the circuit boards, possibly including the power supply has a critical failure. The power supply is in the protect mode. This type of set is serviced by board swapping, and then doing the necessary adjustments to match the new boards as required.

It would be best to call the factory authorized service for a quotation.

If the set is out of warranty you may find it fairly expensvie to service.

Panasonic said "A" board,
A board SOS Detect (Explanation)
10 Blinks SOS: The voltage regulators IC5400 and IC5401 in the A board generate SUB9V and SUB5V. The 9V and 5V from these ICs are monitored by IC1100. Any abnormality on the SUB9V or SUB5V lines, triggers the shutdown circuit and the MPU shuts down the unit. The power LED blinks 10 times.

But need to measure the connection SC2, if it short, it will be the SC board.

The knowledge obtain from: Real case of repair by myself.
Information from Panasonic training manual.

SOURCE: My Panasonic Viera 42" Plasma,

Typically this means you've got a power supply that went bad. I've been doing research for a potential class action lawsuit on these "blinking lights of death" problems that the Panasonics are having and that is usually why the tv will show 10 blinks. Occasionally another component inside the tv can be what caused the tv to shutdown and show the 10 blinks.
I'd like to hear more about your experience with the television and any contact you've had with Panasonic in an attempt to get the television repaired. If you're inclined to share your story with me, please contact me at kiaeger@levjen.com.

Plasma TV, loud bang, dead screen


I have a Sony KE-32TS2 set. We heard a very loud bang, and the screen is dead. We still have audio and the ability to change channels. One electrician friend suggested a blown capacitor in the powersupply. I'm pretty handy with electronic repair. Can I do this myself?
