Customer Question

I have a Viera 2011 plasma. We had a power outage the other night and now the tv won't come on. It's on a power strip so I reset that. But now when I try to turn on the tv, the red power light comes on and then blinks 7 times. No picture after.

OK you have a problem, 7 red blinks is normally scan board failure so its very likely this is the cause, what needs to be done now is for checks to be made with a meter (volt-ohm) and for those board(s) that are bad be identified and replaced I can help you with that however you do need to consider costs boards could amount to $200 this is if you do the work yourself Let me know your thoughts here Please consider rating the answer positively there will be a rating bar of stars usually at the top of the page, rating me positively enables me to receive credit from the site, thank you, ***** ***** will remain open and stay open as long as you need it, if you have any concerns please reply back and I will address any of your concerns Many Thanks Anthony
