Hello, my name is XXXXX XXXXX X will be glad to assist you. The problem is not caused by the power button on your set. The 7 blink pattern of the power light is actually a code used to tell a tech what the problem is in the set. 7 blinks on a Panasonic plasma is a fault on one of the sustain boards in the TV typically, or possibly the Main or the Power Supply board. Either of these faults is something that requires internal testing and component replacement to fix. You're looking at roughly a $300 parts and labor repair depending on which circuit has the fault. I know this is not the answer you'd hoped for but there isn't a quick fix for this problem and the set does require service. if you'd like, you can use the following site to locate a tech in your area: www.tvrepairpros.com.
