Red light flashes 10 times - Panasonic TH-42PX6U

I heard that the flashing codes on Panasonic plasma units represent a specific type of error.

upon plugging in unit and pressing power, the red light flashes 10 times -- do you know what that represents?
My TV is now 1 1/2 Years old and out of warranty. The screen went black and will not turn on now. After reading your problems I can see that I am going to have a rough time repairing. Any help would be appreciated.

    It could be due to one input into the TV, which had the HTPC connected via a DVI-to-HDMI cable plugged into the HDMI 1 slot. *IF* the HTPC was already on, then it would have the blinking. *BUT* if the HTPC was off, it should have booted fine (assuming you cleared the blink first by powering off the HTPC, unplugging the TV, and replugging the TV back in with the HTPC still off). After this I would suggest to move the HDMI cable from slot 1 to slot 3. After making this one change, everything should work for sure. You could even leave the HTPC on and turn on the TV last.



    In case if it doesn’t work by this then check the power relay and the power supply either or both can be bad.



    Please revert for any clarifications.



    A “Fixya” rating would be appreciated.



    Thanks

The problem / symptom you are facing is a protection mechanism when a fault is detected the tv goes into protection mode and displays a error message in this case 7 blinks.

you will need a service manual which includes the list of codes and explanations of them.

I have to warn you, its not recommended attempting to fix a tv at home. Do you have previous experience?

TH-42PZ80U Panasonic Plasma, red light flashes 10 times


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.

Please make sure your connectors are in the proper place.

The HDMI inputs on the rear of the TV are optimized for use with Audio/Video devices, Blu-ray Disc Player, DVD Recorder, etc.
The front or side HDMI inputs only are designated for PC. To use the TV as a PC monitor, advise customers to use only front or side HDMI inputs.

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.

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 :):)
