Hi; the blinking light code means that you have a fault in the power supply unit, unplug the tv from the power source, check all transistors you will find some of there shorted, just replace them; if you need a help about repairing i'll help you

    Thank you for your quick responce. Some help in repairing this would be helpful. Is it the board just above the plug, and how th test transistors?

    I'm doing factual research for a potential class action suit regarding these blinking light issues that Panasonic plasma televisions are having and I'd like to hear more about your experience if you're inclined. If you're willing to share information about your experience with the tv and Panasonic (if you've contacted them), please email me at

I have the EXACT same model...and now have the EXACT same problem. Mine was manufactured in March of 08. It has low hours on it it was in storage for about 5 months this past summer. I did find a youtube video of a man in Briton with this problem. He is an engineer and determined that it is a failed comb driver, which of course, is built into the actual screen, requiring the entire screen to be replaced in order to fix it.

I guess I'm lucky because my failure is on the far right of the if you are going to have 2" of black, that would be a place to have it I guess. Most programming is tolerable this way...but man, I did my research before buying this unit and bought it based on the reviews of its picture quality. It really is the best plasma picture I have seen to date. But now I have to question Panasonic's reliability. Sent a nasty gram to Panasonic Support...we'll see what happens.
