Panasonic flat screen power light flashes. Tried turning on power switch bottom left but it just clicks
JA: What's the make and model of your tv, and has turning it on been a problem in the past?

JA: How long has this been going on? What troubleshooting have you tried?

Offhand, that blinking light is a "fault code" built into the TV telling us of a problem. Can you please count the number of blinks between pauses (for example: 7 blinks, pause, 7 blinks, pause, etc.) and tell me what you get?
