This appears to be affectionately known as the 'Panasonic flashing red light of death'. There seem to be a number of reports of this happening, mostly around 2008. Is this unit under warranty?

GreetingsCustomer the blinking light is not the "Panasonic flashing red light of death" in this instance. Instead, the 11 blinks of the light indicate a defective fan or a faulty fan controller PB board of the GPF11DU chassis. The fans will need to be checked for free movement and the PB board checked to make sure the proper voltages are available.

If you need additional information, please let me know.
