    this is an older '99 model 55" tv. the red l.e.d. light that is flashing is by the power button. it seems that several years ago i was told that you could push two buttons simultaneously when powering up and it would cure some problems. i can't remember which two buttons

Is this set a tp55 projection or a 36a40 direct view? If projection, these sets are bad with convergence problem. Meaning the color goes haywire, red, green blue are all misalign. If this was not what you experienced then it also could be a sound problem or vertical. Either way if you press power and will not come on it's tell you that there is a problem that needs to be address.

Power wont turn on..battery led flash orange

Remove battery. Maybe faulty? Try another cord/charger with the EXACT same specs. Reseat the Memory Mods. has the AC jack been damaged by pulling on the cord? Try plug in and at the laptop's AC jack "wiggle" the AC jack plug. Any change?

When turning on my panasonic cinemavision tv, it makes a click sound then the power button light flashes red three times, no picture comes on the screen, any ideas what should be done?

Most likely a power supply failure although the flashing of the LED a fixed number of times may point to something else such as a lamp failure. If you can find a forum for this series, you may find a Panasonic tech who can give you a better read on this.

If the red light flashes at plug in you likely have a main board that is bad. If you have to press the power button before the red light flashes you likely have a bad bad supply board. This will need to be diagnosed by a technician to be sure of the problem.

TV is not powering up and red light keeps flashing

I had the same red blinking led problem on my Toshiba Theaterview tv. I resolved by:
- Unplugging the tv.
- Press several times (3 or 4 times) the tv Power button.
- Plug the tv back in and press the Power button once to turn the tv worked!!!

I've had the problem before and tried unplugging the tv for a couple of days and that had also worked, but I this recent solution seems to be faster.
Good luck!
