Hi I am Tech Michael,

Have you replaced any parts to rectify this issue?

Also do you still get the blink code?

Thanks

Haven't replaced and boards yet. I guess that's the question. What should I replace given the results from the trouble shooting. It's not clear in the manual
Expert:  Master Fix It replied 7 months ago.

Hi, On this set, I've found the main board to be the fault most of the time with this error.

I would do that first. It's almost always the answer to this one, but please observe static precautions as this one is super sensitive to static electricity. It's easy to damage that board in this way.

When you get the board, let me know before you even open the package so I can assist, no extra cost for that.

The best place to get that would be: http://www.shopjimmy.com/panasonic

would definitely call them to order this part for many reasons.

Please call Shopjimmy: (877)(###) ###-####/(###) ###-####/a>

In any case, I will stick with you until this is complete.

Please rate my service kindly.

Also it is the only way I am credited for my time and expertise with you.

Once you rate, I will be notified and will add your question to my priority list so you can reach me anytime until this problem is solved.

Then you can reach me by simply replying to this message anytime.

Thank you and have a great weekend!

Sincerely

Tech Michael
