Sounds like a service code for the tv technician. Your tv has busted and now needs repair. Typical of these new tv's, especially plasmas. Your'e in luck with the Panasonic brand though. They have a large supply of parts available and will usually have a new power supply, power control board or circuit board available. Any off brand, U would have had to just throw the tv away.

TH 42PV8H A MY TV POWER NOT ON RED LED 2 TIME BLINKS


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

My panasonic viera plasma TH-42PX80U will not come on. tried plugging tv directly into wall, no go. someone somewhere suggested holding power button down for 10 seconds, did that. no response with remote,...


Hi:
You will need to count the number of red led blinks on the power indicator, if it is at least 10 then replace the power supply it is faulty, In my years of servicing panasonic Plasma, power supply failure is about the most common failue in this class of television from this manufacture.

TH-42PZ80U Panasonic Plasma, red light flashes 10 times


Panasonic said "A" board,
A board SOS Detect (Explanation)
10 Blinks SOS: The voltage regulators IC5400 and IC5401 in the A board generate SUB9V and SUB5V. The 9V and 5V from these ICs are monitored by IC1100. Any abnormality on the SUB9V or SUB5V lines, triggers the shutdown circuit and the MPU shuts down the unit. The power LED blinks 10 times.

But need to measure the connection SC2, if it short, it will be the SC board.

The knowledge obtain from: Real case of repair by myself.
Information from Panasonic training manual.

Panasonic plasma 50PZ85 power led blink 10 times


Either a bad power supply or a bad processor board.
A Good Service Shop should know what the 10 blinks are indicating.
May be a repair cost between $200 and 400 dollars.
Be prepared -
