I had this same problem with my 7 month old Panny 42 PZ700U,Panasonic sent tech out to pick up and was repaired 3 weeks later...3 months now and still works great!!! Tech said SC board was bad,and also said that there have been "some" repairs on these sets,but for as many of these sets that are out there,the repair rate is low compared to other brands.

I got the same problem...contacted panasonic because it was within the one year warranty, nice customer service but after that service fell thru...likely i had circuit city warranty and they got right on it to find a repair guy...but after a week parts are on back order and by reading....don't know if it will fix or not...i am letting this play out and will post the results.....really severe problem with the Sep-Oct 07 builds, i suppose..

Same problem. Have to wait until they open back up tomorrow to make the call.

I am also having a problem with mine. One day I got a message on the screen that said An error has been detected and recovered. The next day the tv shut off and seemed to be recycling (turning itself back on) and then the power button flashed 13 times. I called Panasonic PISSED and they told me it meant that a servicer needed to come check it out, blah, blah.
So today the guys showed up and they said that they would have to take it with them and I said NO, Panasonic told me they were going to send you the parts and it would be fixed in my home.
So they are coming back on Saturday to replace three of the circuit boards (power and I forget the two others). Needless to say I am VERY DISAPPOINTED with Panasonic because I have only had this set in my place for FOUR months and this happened. BS. Truthfully Panasonic should simply exchange these sets because something was obviously missed in their QUALITY CONTROL.

I have a similar problem. It turns on ok, but after an hour, if I turn it off and try to power up again I get 10 flashing red lights. Must unplug and wait to cool down to room temp - then it works. Had the H-PCB and DG-PCB replaced and still no luck. I am exchanging for another one. The service guys want to take it with them, but would provide a loaner. Need to return this within the next two weeks to get an exchange...
