Have TV Questions? Ask a TV Technician
Your TV has three lights on the front of it- Temp, Lamp and Power.
Which ones are blinking?
Also describe the blinking so I can look this up (for example: Red blinks 3 times every 5 seconds, while green flashes for 2 minutes then turns Red, etc.).
Did you need assistance with this problem?
Okay, these blink codes are pretty specific- so I'm going to look that up in the service manual.
That code indicates IC6003 detects the error of ballast, then detects the error when the thermal fuse in the ballast is open.
So according to that blink code, the thermal fuse in the ballast has failed, and requires replacement of that fuse, or of the entire ballast.
There's a kit at the link below to repair the ballast that includes the thermal fuse:
The location of the fuse is shown on page 7 of the service manual at the link below if you are looking to repair this yourself:

I'm not sure what you're asking?
In the picture on page 7, it shows the thermal fuse on the top of the LCD drive (CBA) which is your ballast. That fuse needs to be replaced.

Okay, follow those pictures in the manual I sent you and you will not have a problem. You'll need to purchase that kit I linked you to as well.

You're welcome- and sounds good.
The 5 STARS should be showing at the top of the page. Let me know if you cannot see them.
Do you need further assistance with this?
You posted a specific blink code which is referenced in the service manual directly. I posted what Panasonic's service manual states is the corrective action, and you're saying that's not it. Then maybe the blink code you gave was not the correct one? Not sure how you tested the fuse either here, but at this point given the information I've provided and the outcome- I will have to opt out and am no longer involved in this dialog.
