I changed the power supply board and it does the same 10 blink code, what can be my next steps ?
Expert:  Pete replied 11 months ago.

Hi Emmanuel,

A 10 blink error code on your Panasonic TC-P46S2 plasma TV can be caused by a fault detected in one more more of the following areas:
Sub 5v SOS / Main 3v SOS DG Board
DTV 9v SOS / Tuner Power SOS

You will need to check you definitely have the correct voltage outputs from the power supply board first, then troubleshoot other areas of the TV circuitry.

I understand, that is what was posted all over the net, but now what connectors and what pins do I have to look for. I don't have the block diagram of this TV. Can you help me on that?

Yes, you can get the service manual and block diagram from

Hi, just checking in on your question, do you need any further assistance?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
To be honest, this is not really what I excepted.
I thought we would have a one to one conversation or chat and figured out the issues together.
I did not think I had to understand in depth the 109 page service manual and figure out the issues.
I did not have time to look @ the block diagram. I will try to look @ this this weekend.
The answers you gave me are the same I could find on the internet before posting to this web site.I will let you know probably next week.

We can certainly reply back and forth and have a conversation on this topic.

However this type of troubleshooting is always best solved through carrying out the voltage checks to narrow down the affected area.
