panasonic TH-42PX60U has no power. Replaced fuse and power light blinks 10 times then pauses and repeates.
Hi! My name isXXXXX am happy to help you with this! Please bear with me and be patient as sometimes these issues take a little bit of figuring out before we know what's wrong. If you could give me some more information it will be very helpful:

-What was wrong with the tv before you replaced the fuse?
-How old is the unit?

Please give me this information and I will be happy to assist you further.
Thank you,

OK, do you see the two large plugs going out of the power supply, one goes the to ss board on the left and one to the sc board on the right? (these two connectors are in the top left of the board)

There should be two wires to each connector. I need you to set your meter to ohms and measure between the two wires. what do you get?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

0 readings

0 ohms? The same reading you would get if you touch your meter leads together?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Yes 0 ohms

OK unplug both wires and check the pins on the board. What does it read?

Customer: replied 3 years ago.

Same, 0. I have two meters, both read 0

OK if those are reading 0 ohms on the board then you have a bad power supply and you need to replace it.

TXN/P1BJTU is the part number you need, I would recommend ebay myself, thats the cheapest I have found it yet.
