    Have the same problem with Panasonic TH42PX60U. TV is a little over a year and a half old. When I turned it on, a few seconds later, we heard a loud pop, and now it won't turn on. The power button blinks, but no sound or video. The cable box which is using the same outlet was not affected. No lighting or bad weather to cause this. TV is still under warranty since I got the extended warranty, only I hope they don't try to weasel out of it. Does anyone have any idea what could cause this?

Ten flashes from the light is a problem that needs to be issolated by a tech the 1st board to check is the PA board,and all the boards require authorization from panasonic to replace. that is why a tech must do the repair. if the unit is under warranty they must honor the warranty. extended warranty must honor the agreement you signed or purchased. there are a total of 6 boards that can cause the 10 flashes and can be costly to repair that is why I say when ever buying these types of sets get the extended warranty. these sets are no the sets of old they are not componet level repaired but board level repaired.

if you have the right tools then you can do it, make sure unplug the tv unit first while replacing the board. then mark or put a label to the connector that you were disconnect not to interchange that can cause of damage to the other board.

I accidentally overheated my Panasonic Plasma TV TH-42PZ700U. It won't turn on, and the power button blinks TEN times.

Check and see if there are any blown caps on the power supply. If there are replace them or change your power supply.

Thank you

I plug in my TH-42PZ80U and it doesnt turn on but a red light blinks ten times.

Apparently this common problem is due to a faulty power board. Contact Panasonic for a replacement if it's under warranty (hopefully) or a local repair shop. Good luck!

How to setup picture in picture function on my tv. panasonic viera 42-px600u

This is controlled by the Split and Swap buttons on the remote; the size of the second picture can be adjusted with the Aspect button. First press split and use the Input button to select the source of the right picture of the split screen (TV channel or video inputs). Then press Swap and use the input button to select the source of the second screen. Swap again if desired or press Aspect to change the size of the main screen window. However, it is not available if you are using the HDMI, PC and SD Card viewing mode. Since the TV doesn't have dual digital tuners, you can't watch two different digital channels on the split screen.

The manual for the Panasonic TH-42PX600U is available from from Panasonic here: . See page 18 of the manual, page 10 of the PDF.

I hope this helps.

whole power board.Tries, for refurbish power board.

TV clicked and went picture, no sound. Power light blinks ten times in one second intervals and then pauses for about five seconds.

Most problems with TV not turning ON is a power supply related problem. The relay click are a normal process that powers up the circuit boards. Right now the TV is most likely in " Protection Mode ". The TV detected a bad circuit board and it will prevent the TV from fully turning ON. This keeps the other circuit board from being damaged. The power light blinking is a code.
If by chance the TV is still under warranty, go that route.
If not under warranty and If you have some electronic experience, if you can find and purchase a Service Manual over the internet. This will help you diagnose the source of the problem and fix it by soldering in the new part. The Service Manual will give you circuit diagrams, blinking light codes, test points, and part# lists. Usually, cost under $20.

I hope I shed some light on the subject for you.

No power

I would guess it's the power unit for the TV itself.

If it's still under guarantee I would have thought you should be able to get it replaced.
