    Hi ButtFuzz, thanks for the info but still no joy. The exact model is TH-42PX70BA. Its red light flashes ten times before stopping then starts its flashing again.

    First thing to do is unplug it from the wall for about 30 minutes, then plug it back in and turn it on and see if the problem still exists.

Bummer.

Everything I read in the AV forums on the internet seems to indicate this is a bad PSU board.

I'm assuming that is the Power Supply Unit. Judging from other repairs, this is probably a $400 USD repair.

Maybe you can go to the store you purchased it from and buy an extended warranty on the unit (backdated - and you'll be charged accordingly) and get it repaired for the cost of the warranty instead of the higher actual repair bill. I've negotiated situations like this in the past. Make a comparison of the cost of the warranty v expected repair bill.

Best of luck, and sorry I could not be of more assistance.

The power switch is located on the lower left side of the display, right near the on indicator light. Check page 13 of the manual from this website. It shows exactly on the picture from that page.http://service.us.panasonic.com/OPERMANPDF/TH42PZ85U.PDF

I would use the warranty at Bestbuy at that point. Opening up the TV would most likely void the warranty.
