Heat is the enemy of electronics, and these sets operate hot. You might wish to unplug the TV for an hour or more. If this power reset does not allow the TV to turn on component failure is indicated. These sets are assembled using the wave soldering process they are known for having cold solder connections. The safety circuitry shuts the TV set down when it detects a problem. This model of TV has over 3,000 parts which include millions of transistors inside the integrated circuits. The capacitors will change value, leak and become defective. Resistors will change value and burn. Integrated circuits and transistors can go bad. This can cause other components to become defective, which can have a domino effect and cause other parts to fail. Replacing one defective part may make the TV operate for a short time but the part will fail again since if the parts that caused the failure to begin with are not replaced. The only way to know for sure what is causing the problem, which parts that are no longer within factory specs and for proper repair all the electronics must be diagnosed by someone with the correct electronic test equipment and the skills to use the test equipment. I wish I could tell you there was a quick fix or button to push that would fix the TV but that is not the case or the solution needed to get the TV operating correctly.
The 4 blinks signifies problems with the Power SOS P Board. If replacing that dosn't solve the problem, then you'll need the help of a technican. I cannot conclude into that, because the error codes do not tell exactly what will be needed to repair the TV. This requires testing.
I hope that solves your Problem, If so kindly accept it.
Thank You, Arjun.

I did see this though which was nice - although I am not sure how useful it would be to someone not electronically proficient.

1 blink STV 5v sense DG Board

2 blinks 15v SOS D Board

3 blinks 3.3v SOS D Board

4 blinks Power SOS P Board

5 blinks 5v SOS D Board

6 blinks Driver SOS 1 SU / SD / SC Boards (SC energy recovery circuit)

7 blinks Driver SOS 2 SU / SD / SS Boards (SC floating voltage area)

8 blinks Driver SOS 3 SS Board (SS energy recovery circuit)

9 blinks Panel Config. SOS

10 blinks Sub 5v SOS / Main 3v SOS DG Board DTV 9v SOS / Tuner Power SOS

11 blinks Fan SOS PB Board

12 blinks Sound SOS H Board

13 blinks Communication error DG Board with IC8001 (Pesks Lite 2)

That the four blinking lightsindicates a power supply failure, and need repair from techinical service if this have warranty.

Good luck.

SOURCE: All of a sudden my

Your tv has a faulty power supply board also called SOS-P board. Take of the back panel and look for any obvious defects. Start by checking the capacitors for cracked/swollen/leaky capacitors. If the tops of the capacitors are not flat then it indicates that the components are faulty. If you find any you should replace them with exactly the same values. Ex: 40v,1000mF
If you don't find any a component level repair might still be possible so if you are skilled in electronics and know how to use a meter you can start by downloading a service manual. Unfortunately I don't have one for this model but you can download it from the link below
Once you have it post back and I will help you troubleshoot this issue.

Ur power supply board is dead, u know basic electronics’ and soldering? Most of the times, the power supply board just have dead leakages gases capacitors.These capacitors always bulges up on it top,or puff up on it top.Replaced these gases leakages capacitors will get your tv power stable,and work again.Or tries websites like, to buy a whole refurbish power supply board for the replacement.

It sounds that the Y-Sustain or its driver sections has the fault. Visit this site for more details. Faults with Panasonic Plasma TVs are described in detail there. Blinking indications and faulty boards will be almost same to most of the Plasma TVs. Check this link, and select the site. Pull up older posts there. Sometimes, ads related to each post might help you to get details of availability of spare board.
