Hi,

Unfortunately this appears to be a common issue developing with these Panasonic sets i.e the '7 blinks of death'!

Several customers are complaining about it. The problem is caused by one, both, or all of the following boards: SC board, SD board, and SU board.

Most commonly, the SC board is the one that has failed and because Panasonic have received so many complaints about this issue they are now agreeing to replace the SC board under extended warranty.

However this is not widely known amongst the general public and Panasonic have kept it very quiet.

I would suggest that you make contact with the Panasonic Concierge service centre. Make them aware that you are aware of the SC board issue and that there is an extended warranty on this and ask them to replace it.

However if it happens that one of the other boards has failed be aware that Panasonic are not covering these under warranty and you will be charged for the repair in this case.

The Panasonic Concierge service is available from here

Thanks for using FixYa.

    thanks for the info. TV just went on the blink after trying to play a dvd. Searched google and found my problem is not unique. I had the blinking red light 9 times. You saved me a ton of time. Read this review, called panasonic and they are scheduled to come in a couple of days.

    I have Panasonic local distributor saying Panassonic is not covering extended warranty of "7 blinks of death" case (TV only 2 year old)
    Located in Israel, I could not get Panassonic online to answer. Any suggestions.?
    They are asking for 250 USD for the card replacement...and it is suppose to be under extended warranty, right?
    thanks for your comments

    Can you send me some reference about Panassonic "agreeing to replace the SC board under extended warranty. "
    My SC card went dead and local distributor says this is not the case...
    Any link to Panassonic approving this one? Thanks a lot !

PANASONIC TV P42ST30B JUST WENT OFF NOW RED LIGHT FLASHES 7 TIMES, STOPS, THEN FLASHES 7 TIMES AND SO ON


These 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. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
