Can you here the HV? I think yes and if so check the Proscan PCB. It's not supplying vertical pulse, or one crt has leaked and the G2 voltage is in short on the crt pcb.
I fixed thousands of Samsung PRTv and never I found the power supply defective.

It sounds that there is some loose contact with any of the IC heatsinks inside the circuit board. Your TV need a through checkup. It is really a skilled work to do with Plasma displays, as they adopts the latest technology. Even an experienced service tech: too will feel a little bit difficult to reach the exact fault point. In my view, it will be better to contact any service technician in your TVs case. If you do wish to get some ideas about the working of Plasma displays, check this link. If you are not familiar with electronics, do not attempt to repair. Whether you suffer fatal electrical shock! Instead, contact the nearest service center.

The power light is just blinking red on my panasonic 1080i hdtv. cant even switch it off using the power button. picture and sound come on for about a second when the tv is switched on after power cord...

The power light keeps flashing and the tv won't turn on. If you unplug for a minute and hit the power button it sound like it is coming on then it shuts off and the red power light flashes slowly. The TV is a Panisonic 1080i HDTV, about 6-7 years old.

Hi, We have a 42" hslc10668phz

generally when you get a constant green light all is ok. these different lights indicate different problems within the tv. so the pattern of lights you mention suggests there is a fault of some kind (is there a troubleshooting section in your manual)? either way it needs to be looked at.
