Customer Question

Panasonic Viera. Haven't been able to turn it on. Have tried the methods of leaving it disconnected then turning power button on and volume at same time, unplugged for 1 minute then power on. Led flashes green upon start up then flashes red (not 7 times though) once every second. Next start up led goes solid orange and then next start up led flashes green constantly???

Sorry for delays here , please hold down the on\off switch on the set itself and let me know if the blink code changes

If you see any messages particular ones for a phone call they are not from me but the site, I do not use the phone call facility myself, only this texting method which I consider the best way forwards, if however you want to use the phone call option this will go to a board for another tech to take up, if a tech considers this viable by phone he will ring you, otherwise if you do not want it please ignore it thanks.
