Question about Panasonic VIERA TH-P42X30 MULTISYSTEM PLASMA TV FOR 110-240 VOLTS

Open Question

My Panasonic TH-P42X30Z has the dreaded 8 red blinking light when it is turned on. What's wrong?

Googling says the SS board. Panasonic won't confirm as they say that 8 flashes mean different things on different models. Sounds wrong and I can't find the board ID to ask Shopjimmy.com

SOURCE: Flashing red light 7 times on our panasonic th-42pz700u

hello you have what you call a "shut down circut" it is for safety and when one of the internal boards gets shorted or is not working properly, service doc reads as follows

7 Blinks SOS:
Pin 93 of the MPU IC9003 monitors the status of the SC, SU, SD board. During normal operation, the photo-coupler PC6480 outputs a low to pin 93. If the SC, SU, or SD board becomes defective, a high is provided to pin 93. As a result, the unit shuts down and the power LED blinks 7 times


thiera blinking 7 times is cuase by a fualt in sc,su,sd boards

The factory diagnostic for an 8 blink error code is: Driver SOS 3 SS-Board / SS2-Board; SS FPC Detect; SS Energy Recovery Circuit. Basically it means that the current absorbed by the X-Sus board is too high. It looks like this

You will need to open the tv and check the connections to this board and all the components on it. Also check the filtering capacitors from the power output line that powers this board.
If you can't find anything wrong then the entire board will have to be replaced.
