Question about Panasonic PT-53WX42 53" Rear Projection Television

Power cuts out on PT-53WX42

While watching the TV the power automatically cut out and the TV went off. The remote nor the power button on the front of the unit would turn it back on. If you push the power on button on the remote or the unit itself, a red light on the TV, next to the power button, will flash several times, but nothing else happens.


I unplugged the TV for approx. 1 minute and then tried it again. The unit came on for about 3 seconds and then shut off. Then the same thing happens where the remote or the unit power buttons will not do anything.


Any advise?
