Question about Panasonic VIERA TH-65PV500 65 in. Plasma Television
Same problem...working one minute, now nothing but a flashing red light. TV is about 2 months old.
When the power light blinks the set's protection circuits are causing the unit to shut off and blink. The series of blinks is an SOS signal that a servicer can decode to help diagnose the problem.
For those in areas other than in the US, I can't really say what the issue might be as the SOS patterns may be different for different countries. But, if you can find a service manual for your area you should be able to at least get an idea of what might have happened to it. There's no guarantee that what you read is the actual problem without further testing, however a solution which may work is press & hold the power switch on the TV -- that resets the switch..
psl rate my suggestion.
