Thank you again for trusting us with your problem. Please reply as soon as possible so that we can finish answering your question.
If you wish to repair it yourself what type of electronic training do you have?What type of TV test equipment do you own?
Where are you located?
It blinks every second..maybe a bit faster..could be 2 blinks per second.
I would suggest that you call Panasonic 1-800-211-7262 and ask them for the firmware update 1.04. This could possibly correct the problem. If not the only way to know for sure what is causing the problem, which parts that are no longer within factory specs and for proper repair all the electronics must be diagnosed by someone with the correct electronic test equipment and the skills to use the test equipment Let me know what the firmware update does and I will continue if necessary.
The red light blinking is blinking to let you know the TV is getting power but the safety circuitry has detected a problem and is keeping it from powering up. You might try unplugging it overnight and then plugging it back in if you have not already. This power reset can correct the problem if it is not part or firmware failure.
Thank you. I like that answer better. We will leave it unplugged overnight and call panasonic when they open if this hasnt corrected the problem.
