7X blink error code indicates sustain board failure and sometimes power supply board also found defective due to short in sustain board. Mostly it is SC Board failure, sometimes SU or SD board go out adjacent to SC board located on left side of rear of the screen

what does that mean
TV Technician: Shahid, Technician replied 1 month ago

Please click the following link to view SC, SU, SD and Power board images and part number info if you have a plan to do it yourself

TV will take apart and need to use a multimeter to troubleshoot the problem to determine what circuit board is bad to get it replaced in the TV to fix the problem. If you are not comfortable working on it yourself then you may please use the following link to get a list of TV repair shops in the area which will help to get repair quote...

I'm sorry there is no easy or quick fix for this problem and it is definitely hardware failure that needs defective board replacement to resolve the issue. I trust my input will help you out to make the decision about this TV repair or invest that money in new replacement TV.
If you have any additional questions, feel free to ask. If you're satisfied, please rate me a 5-star at the top of your page so I can get the credit for my work on the website.
Thank you.

Different expert here. It looks like Shahid is away from his computer. Do you still need help troubleshooting the plasma?
