Hi , I`m Jack , I will be helping you today
A few questions coming up and please note that it may take a few minutes between replies;

What is the tv doing now if anything ?
Is there a light or blinking light at the front , clicking sound from inside when you plug in the power cord or try to turn it on ?
Or completely dead no activity whatsoever ?

I hit the imput button and turned it on. The red light blinks 14 times and then pauses. I have no picture, no light. It is a blank screen. I don't know if it is repairable or not. It seems to me that I have paid over $1200 total in August 2011 and in 51/2 years is a short time for t.v. to die. I paid $799 for the t.v. and additional $400.00 for delivery and set up. I purchased it at Best Buy in N. E. Mall, Hurst, Texas. I have always had great service out of phones, answering machines, hand held phone, and other Pansonic products. Needless to say, I was told by a man on the phone, a tech that on your wed site "there would be no charge". HOwever, I seem to have paid $5.00 , Please tell me just what the situation is. I don't know if the television is dead or if it can be fixed. Best Buy will come out for $99.00 plus $200 for labor. Please tell me just what I need to do. I would appreciate your help.
