Question about Panasonic TH-42PX60U Television
I heard that the flashing codes on Panasonic plasma units represent a specific type of error.
upon plugging in unit and pressing power, the red light flashes 10 times -- do you know what that represents?
Hey there! i finally figured it out!! If you have a computer hooked up with the HDMI cable in the back of the TV and the computer is either on screen saver mood or sleep mood then it is trying to make the television go to sleep aswell. So the only way you can have a computer hooked up to the TV is if you use the front HDMI hook up. pretty weird but thats what was wrong with mine. Hopefully that was the problem :):)

I found a solution that might work for a few people. I had my mine (TH-42PX80U) set up with my PS3 on HDMI1, X-Box on HDMI2 and computer on HDMI3. After moving yesterday, my PS3 and computer ended up on 3 and 1 respectively. Then this morning I had the red light for the first time in two years. Apparently the video cards on some computers cause problems for the plasma unless they're plugged into HDMI port 3 like I originally had it. I made the switch, unplugged the tv for thirty seconds, and presto, problem solved.

I bought this tv in August of 2008. First episode occurred in October of 2009 - after manufacturer warranty had expired. It returned back to normal. Second episode occurred in March of 2010 and never got the unit to power up.
I had an electronic service center check it out. Turns out it's a defective power unit that's misfiring. The misfire triggers the overheat error code.
Panasonic retailer wanted $575 for parts and labor.
Service center executed finely and strapped on a 6 month warranty for $375.
I will be faxing a copy of the invoice and original receipt for a reimbursement.

I have the same issue. Originally the tv just shut off, no blinking light whatsoever. Wouldn't come back on so I bought a new power supply board. After installing the new board, I now get 10 blinking lights. Does anyone have another solution for this?

I was struggling with same problem,I am lucky to find the cure at no cost.In my case D935 on main pcb (with tunner) was not seated properly thus not sending pulses to Y Sustain pcb

Same problem. Temp fix.
When plugged in, error code flash 10 times repeat.
Unplug the TV, error code should flash about 3 repeat. Wait untill it stops flashing.
Plug back in and turn on TV. If this doesn't fix it, it's a defective part/unit.
