I have the blinking blue light on my 10yr old pioneer

Customer Question
I have the blinking...

I have the blinking blue light on my 10yr old pioneer plasma

Technician's Assistant: Can you guesstimate how old your Pioneer is? And just to clarify, what's the exact model?

I think 5080HD, but maybe 5070HD

Technician's Assistant: Does the TV menu work? Do you have the same problem on all sources/inputs?

Yeah I can't press any sources to change them it just says starting up, and then eventually shuts back off

Technician's Assistant: How long has this been an issue? What happened right before this popped up?

I was having problems getting audio via hdmi on cable tv so I was tinkering around I pulled the power plug out of the back while it was still on standby I realized. not sure if it didn't like that
