Thank you for your inquiry. You will need to reset the television.
To reset the television hold the volume - on the television and menu on the remote simultaneously until self check is displayed.
Unplug the unit for about 30 seconds.
Reconnect the unit and power it on and complete the first time setup.
This should resolve your issue. Please let us know if further assistance is needed. Thank you for contacting Panasonic.

You will need to count the number of red led blinks on the power indicator, if it is at least 10 then replace the power supply it is faulty, In my years of servicing panasonic Plasma, power supply failure is about the most common failue in this class of television from this manufacture.

Had the same problem. Was quoted $800 to fix. Searched the internet for 6 months and found this thread on avforums.com
Read through all the posts. Very simple fix, but you have to have some mechanical inclinations or you can cause more problems than you started with. I was up to 5 of the black lines, but decided to attempt the soldering these guys did and fixed it all for the cost of a soldering iron! Even if you decide not to attempt it, it gives you somewhere to start to tell a technician.
