Hello, My name is ***** ***** I'll be assisting you. I'm sorry you're having problems. In order to assist you, I need to ask for more info.

1) Are you saying you have the exact same blink pattern as the question above?

2) Is yours the EXACT SAME model number TV?

3) Are you a technician, or are you just trying to find out what it would cost to repair the TV?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
1- yes
2 -yes
3 - not a tech, but may attempt fixing it myself (engineer)
Customer: replied 11 months ago.
the similarity is complete, minus opening the box and measuring voltages
the tv has to remain unplugged for a while, many minutes, to produce the blink codes
Expert:  Aric replied 11 months ago.

Okay, the 10 blink code is the most general code Panasonic has- it literally points to nothing specific. Mainbaord triggers the 10 blinks by monitoring the power board, SC SD and SU boards. The question above gives very good detail as well as test points to fix the problem- it is conclusive and all the info needed is right there in that question. That said, I'm assuming you have a meter and have run through the checks that the previous tech indicated?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
i have a meter, but have not opened the box

Expert:  Aric replied 11 months ago.

I'm sorry, but I will need to opt out of the question. It is now open for other experts to view and assist.

OK, please unplug the TV and remove connectors SS11 and SS33 from the SS board. Plug in the TV and press the power button on TV and check..

Does the TV power up and stay on?
