The lights are there to inform you on the status of the power source. They are flashing because the power source is in protected mode - a part inside the tv has failed and the power source has shut itself down to protect itself and the rest of the tv. To find which part you must open it and test the components. The most likely part on a tv of this age are the electrolytic capacitors - look for bulging or leaking ones. 
If you haven't done that before then it's better to call a repairman, if you mess with it the damage could get even bigger and more expensive.

    Is there a way to reset this condition. I believe it may have been a kind of glitch to the system because I missed a connector reassembling the TV

  • Azrael SRL Jul 29, 2010

    It's not a glitch - an actual part is dead. If you missed a power connector no wonder that the tv fails to work - the part that was supposed to be powered by that connection got fried by the signals that were sent to it by the other components. 

    The problem you have isn't something you can reset, it's not a setting, an actual part has been fired, creating a short and the power source is designed that way as to shut down if a short happens on one of its power lines. You can disable that protection by soldering a connection on the board but this is a sure way of completely destroying it if you don't take other measures of protection.
     The tv must be tested, the fried part identified and replaced, and only then your tv will start.

Hi Bismi, my PV-DM2792 behaves for last four days in the same way - double clicks when power button is depressed and the light PROG is flashing every second continously. I have called to the Panasonic customer service and they could not propose a solution to this problem other than contact an authorized dealer in my area. SirJ

TV and remote

Some suggestions: 1. Try fresh batteries in the remote. Weak batteries make it hard for the TV to see the signal from the remote. 2. Is there sunlight or ambient light hitting the TV on the infrared receiver (the part which sees the remote)? If so, it could be "blinding" the TV. 3. DO you have a ceiling fan which is casting a "flashing shadow" onto the TV? This can interfere with its ability to see the remote.
