Techs on the phone don't have direct access to the product in question. Something like that would have to be physically tested and observed before even thinking about any repairs.
If you feel ballsy, you can open up that power supply and check the filter capacitors. With no filter capacitor, you end up with a shaky DC signal, which could be what's triggering the flashing, as it'd turn back on whenever the voltage hits that DC value it wants to use.
If you see any capacitors in the power supply that have holes or have a pool of brown-ish stuff around the base, that'd be your problem right there.

No picture, then the LED blinks 10 times then pauses

The LED Flashing 10 Times indicates a problem with the Power Supply.

It depends on your Technical ability if you could repair or replace it yourself but a replacement Power Supply PCB is somewhere in the region of $500 depending on the exact version.

My panasonic plasma flashes ten (10 ) times and pauses and flashes again ten ( ten) times but won't stat, what is the problem? 10 flashes is an special signal?

10x flashing is a specific error code.
the model # will narrow the problem down further
the TV likely needs a new circuit board, probably a power supply P board or SC board
repair estimate = 200-400

My panasonic 42 plasma won't switch on red led light flashes 10 times then pauses before flashing again 10 times and so on

I would say you have problem with pboard or PA board
(10 blinks means unit shuts down becuase in tuner section there is short)It will happen if there is no 15V available from power supply

Good Luck
