I had the same problem with a Panasonic Viera Plasma TC-P50S3 with 14 flashes. I used an ohm meter to check continuity of the boards inside, starting with the power board (power to TV off). Check YouTube for videos on how to do this. The SC card showed a fault (It was reading close to zero ohms on both pins. I could find no one who supplied SC boards and could only find repair kits. Repairing a circuit board is outside of my ability, time and tools. I found a place online to send the SC board in for repairs. $65 plus shipping. I was getting $350 "ballpark" quotes from Panasonic authorized TV repair shops. If none of this works for you, there are TV salvage companies who will pay you some cash and pick up TV from you. You can also sell it on craigslist for salvage parts or part it out separately. The various boards seem to cost around $100 each and you likely have four or five in your TV. At least for my TV, the parts don't seem to be out there, so there is a demand for the salvageable parts.

SOURCE: WONT TURN ON
Most likely, the problem is a defective Main Processor Board. This is the board with the antenna, RCA and HDMI plugs. You cant repair or replace component parts on this board, so dont even try. You must replace the complete board. The TV says Sylvania, but it is a bloody Funia TV. Several years ago this foreign company bought out broke-azzz Sylvania . They are still carrying the Sylvania name since Sylvania was a popular TV name in the 70s. Every electronic company in the USA is now owned by the Chinese, so call Funai and order the part from them. Dont be surprise if they dont have a clue what the heck you asking for. America and all electronics have gone to the puddles. Do you know why? GREED.

Right now, your TV is in " Protection Mode". A damaged part has occurred inside on one of the power supply boards. The red flashing light is a trouble code for a tech to trace the trouble circuit path.
If you have electronic experience with circuit boards, you can find a Service Manual for the TV on the internet for less than $20. This Service manual will have the schematics, red light codes, circuit diagram, and part number list you need to fix the board.
