Question about Panasonic TCP42C1 Plasma TV
No picture the unit has steady red light fro 30 seconds upon turning On then then off.
Try to hard reset it. Unplug it from the power strip for about 4-6 hours and try to turn it back on. If you get BSOD-Black screen of death again and LED blinking then you need to replace the blown caps on the power supply board (PSB) Radio shack or harbor freight tools to get a solder kit w/ flux and about a dozen new thru- hold caps 2v above the current ones on the board. There is also refurbed PSB's on shopjimmy partsstore and ebay. To gain access to the PSB you need to remove the back panel. The PSB with be Printed on the Board Power Supply and the REV number (part number) will also be printed on the board. Disconnect the wire harness and ribbon cables if any and a few screws to pull the board out for repair or replacement. The board only goes in one way. Number the wire harness or take pics to you now which wires go where when you go to replace the board back in the set. Make sure you do this with the TV unplugged...

The six blinks indicates that an internal fan is either bad ot blocked by dust or debris, You should be able to look in the back of the unit and see some cooling fans. Chances are one on them is not turning and will need to be replaced
