If the TV goes in standby, then it is in protection mode.

Ensure also that the fault is not coming from a faulty receiver box sending
bad signal, check if you get same problem on DVD with no receiver box
connected.

Try first leaving the TV power cord unplugged for some times, let say one hour or so.

The flashing light indicates a diagnostic state called protection.
When the TV goes on protection there are only two possible causes.

1The internal circuits are jammed because of electrostatic charges accumulating on capacitors, or because of a wrong voltage read by the main chip on your monitor controller board. this started the protection circuit.

2 The protection circuit detected a wrong voltage or abroken contact, identified an internal fault and kicked in , starting the flashing light.

If you are in situation one, then the TV will reset just unplugging power cord for one or two hours,sometimes even minutes.

If you are in situation 2 , then there is an internal fault.

If under warranty contact the manufacturer ringing the number on the user manual

If you want to repair at your own expenses, just locate any good qualified repairer.

On LCD Pay particular attention at inverter and power board, power board can be inspected looking for bulged or leaking capacitors, then tested with a multimeter. The inverter is more difficult to test , there is need to read voltages, should be done by a tech. Also the LCD controller board can cause same problem

On Plasma, test Sustain (Ysus/Zsus) / Buffer boards , cables to plasma, digital board and power board.

On Rear Projection : check lamp, lamp ballast, power board, and convergence.

On CRT TVs, check ballast , flyback transformer, CRT, Tuner, Convergence.

SOURCE: red light flashes 10 times - Panasonic TH-42PX6U

I bought this tv in August of 2008. First episode occurred in October of 2009 - after manufacturer warranty had expired. It returned back to normal. Second episode occurred in March of 2010 and never got the unit to power up.

I had an electronic service center check it out. Turns out it's a defective power unit that's misfiring. The misfire triggers the overheat error code.

Panasonic retailer wanted $575 for parts and labor.

Service center executed finely and strapped on a 6 month warranty for $375.

I will be faxing a copy of the invoice and original receipt for a reimbursement.

My Panasonic TH-50PZ7OOU will not turn on. The red light on the lower left is on, but the screen is completely dark. pressing power button on both TV and Remote control gets no response.


Try to power it up with the remote control. When you hear the relay's click, see how many times the red light flashes. This will tell us what the fault is.

2002 bmw 530i key does not (remotely) unlock doors or trunk but they work fine manually.


Unlock vehicle. Enter vehicle. Close driver's door. Switch ignition ON and OFF. Remove ignition key. Press and hold unlock button. Press lock button briefly 3 times within 10 seconds keeping unlock button depressed. Release unlock button. Some models: LED flashes slowly for 10 seconds. Some models: Central locking system locks and unlocks rapidly to indicate correct programming. Repeat above procedure if central locking system does not work and LED does not flash or LED flashes continuously.
