My panasonic television (CT-36HL43) will turn on shortly, with black screen, then click three or four times, then turn off, the red light flashes on & off. I'll unplug it for a few minutes and it goes through the same thing again.
A previous posted solution stated that it might be the Overvoltage regulator. If so, is it resettable? easily replaced?

Any malfunction associated with a blinking redlight usually indicates a
circuit problem or defective component. Unfortunately, the days of
taking off the back cover of your TV and replacing a defective tube or
fuse are long gone. Proper servicing will require troubleshooting
procedures that can only be performed by a qualified electronic repair
facility or professional television repair person. Ask for an estimate
and a realistic appraisal of whether the set can be adequately fixed.
Depending on the age and condition of your TV it may not be cost
effective to repair.
This is usually down to a safety feature cutting out the Television from harming itself. Or quite possibly a fault that make it turn itself off - it may well be thinking it's receiving the command to turn itself off.
Either way, it's impossible to find out without opening it up. A professional repair is the only way, check up on your warranty. You may want to plug it into a different power source, just on the off-chance that it may solve your problem - but don't get your hopes up.
