Question about Panasonic TC-P46S1 TV
My suggestion is that you get an estimat from a dealer on repair costs and you decide whether you want to spen money on a part or new set. This is a bad circuit board and probably the power supply. The repair will be around $200.00 minimum unless you get lucky and there is no major issues and the board can be repaired.
The service manual says. you have what you call a "shut down circut" it is for safety and when one of the internal boards gets shorted or is not working properly, service doc reads as follows
7 Blinks SOS: Pin 93 of the MPU IC9003 monitors the status of the SC, SU, SD board. During normal operation, the photo-coupler PC6480 outputs a low to pin 93. If the SC, SU, or SD board becomes defective, a high is provided to pin 93. As a result, the unit shuts down and the power LED blinks 7 times
thiera blinking 7 times is cuase by a fualt in sc,su,sd board.
If the board shorted another before it went dead you could have other issues, thats why you need a tech to look at it and give you an estimate. You never know, this being so close to warranty they might work with you on it.
