Can you please get me the full model number off of the back of the TV?Also, that blinking will generally be in a pattern (for example: 7 blink, 7 blinks, etc.). Can you tell me what blink pattern you have?

Okay, please give me a few minutes to pull this set up.
Ask Your Own TV Question

Sorry for the delay. A 10 blink code on this 42" Plasma indicates a hardware failure has occurred (most commonly with the power supply board or mainboard), and generally requires repairs made to the set.

However it's worth it to try a hard reset, as sometimes the processor in the TV can simply have locked up.

The first thing you would try, is disconnect the set from power, then press and hold the power button on the TV itself (not the remote), for 10 seconds and release. Then plug the set back in, and also check that the power cord is connected tight at the TV as well. Press power once, and see if the set powers up normally. Try this procedure up to 2 times, and please let me know what happens.
