Question about Sony PFM-42X1 Plasma TV
The light turns red to signal the fact that the power source goes in protected mode - its safety system has detected a short on one of its outputs. So yes, it could be a problem with the power source itself - some of its filtering capacitors have aged and are now drawing a lot of current thru themselves. But it's much more likely that the problem is somewhere else - in your case the most probable fault is the Y-sus board, since the fault appears when it's time to start the plasma panel.
