The red blinking light usually has a pattern that gives you a code to the possible problem.
Maybe you have a bad power supply board. You have to open the panel and do a few tests on the power supply's outputs to be sure.
It produces a variety of voltages for different parts of the tv ie. the plasma display panel and the audio system. The components supplying power to the audio system may have failed a year ago and recently the pdp.

plasma tv's are expensive to repair, most of the time you can get a better tv for the same price. You can reduce that cost by learning and troubleshooting it yourself.

My 42 inch Akai is about 6 months old,, and is showing green where black should be..
BUt there is help for you all.. Call Verizon, sign up for their "Expert Care" program. it's $10.00 a month, and active after the third month.
with a $75.00 deductable. THey will fix or Replace (give you choice of three alternate models/brands).
Free services under this plan are adjustments, and One FREE remote per year!.
i recomend you sign up for this program, and after 90 days. call for service. They more than likely will replace your TV's.
This is what they did with mine..
ALSO.
it doesn't matter how old your TV is, the plan is applicable to all TV's in your household. So one plan, one monthly payment of $10.00, covers all the TV's you own!!

Repaired one of these with the same symptoms about two weeks ago. My guess is that the SMPS has failed. In laymen's terms the power supply, Samsung p/n#Bn96-00249a and you should be able to purchase it at Vance Baldwin http://www.vancebaldwin.com/ and just sign in as a guest, select parts# and input the number above (no dashes). Be seated when you do they're a bit spendy - - about $270.00 dollars plus shipping and a $50.00 core... You get that back when you send them the old one.. After you get the back off the PS is located in the middle of the unit at the top of the screen. If you need the service manual to help just let me know. It's actually an easy plug and play repair... Good Luck Bill premtech@willapabay.org
