Those blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.

If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device, in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.

I had a similar problem where my TH-42PX60 would turn on but all controls were disabled. I could not change channel, input, volume or anything other than turning the TV on and off. I called customer support and they directed me to this site: http://www.pasctraining.panasonic.com/specialapplications/productfirmwaredownloads/downloads1.asp to download a firmware update onto an SD Card. I inserted the SD card into the slot in my TV and powered it on. The update took about 3 minutes and I haven't had a problem since.
This is a link to the instructions to install the update:

SOURCE: Panasonic plasma TV model TH-42PD60U won't turn on

I had this problem in 2007 / 2008 here is what happened to me. Jan 09, 2008 - I also have brought the unit to the authorized Panasonic repair facility and the problem is a failure in the P-board which is the power supply board. The P-board needs to be replaced. The repair will cost $475 plus tax. $250 is for labor. The unit was nop more than two months out of warranty. This does not speak well for Panasonic. I have been researching the problem and it looks like this has happened to many of the Panasonic plasma TVs.
Jun 14, 2008 - As an update to my problem with the failed P board. Contacted Panasonic Service and talked to a customer service representative. I told them how I have purchased many Panasonic products and how unhappy I was with the failure of the product. They proposed paying the labor cost of $250 and I would pay for the part. I just hope it does not happen again.

It sounds like it's overheating. If you can put a small electric fan behind it and see if that fixes the problem.
My plasma has a regular box fan behind it to cool it off.

I turn on my Panasonic TH-42PD60U Television - red LED blinks and there is a clicking noise but TV doesn't turn on.


Panasonic plasmas are notorious for their power board problems.

I can't know which one of the few possibilities yours might have, but at the very least it is worth checking against the most common ones(s):

http://www.coppelltvrepair.com/p/54/repair-kit-for-panasonic-th-42px60u-panasonic-th-42px600u-and-panasonic-th-42pd60u

Read the listing, get a multimeter and check the described components for short or open (in case of a fuse) and if it matches then that's the problem and that's the solution.

For in-depth troubleshooting help consider using www.coppelltvrepair.com/diagnose - it's free to ask, but we may not always be able or willing to help and when we do we'll typically put a price on a consultation.

PANASONIC TH-42PD60U will not power on/no power light/have already replace power supply


If your power supply is new try to check the power cord..If you have a volt meter or multimeter range in AC..check the voltage input of your power supply it should have 110v to 240 volts depends on your electrical supply in your outlet..

If no voltage replace the power cord..Hope it helps..

Panasonic Plasma no sound, can't change channel


Yes the control board would definitely be the offender here. But a word of caution. Oftenj when this board goes 2 other boards are also compromised and not always obvious at the time people think they can just swap the board out.
It went for a reason, not just old age. So it is better and cheaper in the long run to get a professional to check it out.

Also from a safety aspect, this is the High Tension area of the TV. Also be aware that radiation of the X type is in abundance at the rear of the tube. The TV must be grounded when opening ( but my advice is dont!) Let the professional do it
