Hello, I have a Panasonic Viera TC-P42ST30 plasma TV which suddenly shut off and will not turn on. No response to the remote (batteries good) or controls on TV side panel. Pressing power switch on the set lights the power LED solid, if the switch is held down for several seconds, it blinks 14 times, pauses and repeats. Will not shut off pressing power button, must unplug to stop. Can you please assist me in troubleshooting?
