These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device, in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.
The Vieras have standby codes that are not published because few Plasma TVs are serviceable by owners. Power surges will cause the blinking sometimes and the only remedy to the owner is to unplug the TV for a few minutes to let the power supply reset and plug it back in to see if you still get the shutdown mode blinks. If you do, the only remedy is to contact Panasonic at 1-877-95VIERA (USA) or 1-866-330-0014(Canada)
5 blinks to plasma display denotes a fault with its main power supply regulator board. If you wish to get more details, check this link.

the set is shut down becuase of an issue. Does the power light blink a certain number of blinks/ If so let me know the number of blinks and I will assist with possible cause of the protective shutdown.
Must check tv carefully for tv images burn in problems,plasma tv have that problems alot.This tv have major issues are power shutdown alot and power supply will not sustance and flashes it power light indcation.Have to unplug awhile like an hour replug back to get tv to work again.If u have chance to used it like 5 hour a day like for a week have warrenty for a week for a return it and get 95% of ur money back.Used it for a week about 5 hrs every day no power shutdown and no power LED light indication flashes i whould buy it.
You need to count the number of times it blinks in succession - this is the TV's trouble diagnostic system that pinpoints the area of failure. Sometimes, if you unplug the TV and leave it for a few hours, it will power back up.
2 blinks means the unit is having problem with 12 volt supply.
while power on you can check 12DC on power supply before shutdown.if the voltage is constant before shut down I would recommend to replace D board.
