Customer Question
It wont turn on...

It wont turn on the light flashes 10 times

Technician's Assistant: What's the make and model of your tv, and has turning it on been a problem in the past?

I cant get to the model # because its mounted to the wall above our fireplace but it is a 50 inch plasma about 8 years old

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

Yes it wants to turn on but then goes off 2-3 seconds later

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

About three or four months every once in a wile before when it started to happen we would leave it on and just tune in to another input that was not in use
