Typically this means you've got a power supply that went bad. I've been doing research for a potential class action lawsuit on these "blinking lights of death" problems that the Panasonics are having and that is usually why the tv will show 10 blinks. Occasionally another component inside the tv can be what caused the tv to shutdown and show the 10 blinks.
I'd like to hear more about your experience with the television and any contact you've had with Panasonic in an attempt to get the television repaired. If you're inclined to share your story with me, please contact me at kiaeger@levjen.com.

Plasma went out... red light blinking 4 times...


It sounds that the Y-Sustain or its driver sections has the fault. Visit this site for more details. Faults with Panasonic Plasma TVs are described in detail there. Blinking indications and faulty boards will be almost same to most of the Plasma TVs. Check this link, and select the site. Pull up older posts there. Sometimes, ads related to each post might help you to get details of availability of spare board.

I have a Panasonic TH-50PE700U


I think if you Google research the model with "10 blinks" you will likely find it is bad power supply or related to it.

Plasma 42" will not turn on, just flashes red light (10 flashes) at bottom front.


Hello K scott57,
You could try and go into the Panasonic installer menu, But handle with care as I dont want you to brick your telly more then it is.

I do recall there being a factory reset option in there somewhere.

How to get into this menu.

Hold down the V/- button on the tv itself then press the AV button on the remote 3 times this should bring up the hidden menu on the screen if it is going to allow you to get in On

Hope this helps you out.

Cheers Little Dish Fitter
