Customer Question

I have a Panasonic Plasma HDTV Model No. TC-P55ST30 Serial No. MF12860081. While watching, the TV went Blank/Black with no response to any controls. All I get now is the red light blinking in the front, seven times at a time. Is there anyway to reset this TV without taking it in for service?
