Panasonic Viera 42" TV won't tun on

There is a red light next to the manual power button that flashes 12 times.  I cannot turn the TV on manually or with a remote.  I've pulled the power cord out for a few minutes, plugged it back in and encoutered the same problems.
Any suggestions?

    when i was viewing the tv it was fine and then all of a sudden, no picture.
    I have tried to hold down the power button on the remote but to no avail. Did you find any solution to this problem, big worry!

    My Panasonic Viera does the exact same thing. I always have to unplug it and plug it back in for it to work. This is so frustrating.

    I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM BUT, I HOOKED UP A PS3 TO MY PANASONIC HDMI AND THEN HAD TO RESET MY PS3 TO PUT IT BACK ON MY REGULAR TV AND HELD THE PS3 BUTTON DOWN FOR 6 SECONDS TO RESET IT THEN MY HDMI TV DIDN'T WORK AND THE RED POWER BUTTON DOES THE SAME THING AND I TRIED TO HOLD THAT BUTTON DOWN TO RESET IT BUT IT DID NOT WORK.

This problem happens when you connect a DVI-HDMI input to the back of the set. It can happen other ways too though. Press and hold your power button, which will reset the unit to it's factory defaults, and should return it to normal use.

Your TV is showing symptoms of power supply failure. It needs to be repaired or replaced. The remote has nothing to do with the power supply problem

Panasonic viera tv won't turn on. Power light


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
