Greetings. I have a Panasonic TV (TH-P50V20A). It is displaying a flashing red light, and will not turn on.

Technician's Assistant: Is your Panasonic TV connected to a surge protector or power strip?

No, it isn't.

Technician's Assistant: Have you tried to power reset your TV (unplugging the power for 1-2 minutes, then plugging it back in)?

Yes, but perhaps not for that long. Will do that now.

Technician's Assistant: Anything else you want the TV Expert to know before I connect you?

No. I'll try the disconnecting first. Thank you.

I love this site! $9 instead of a repairman or new/used frig can't be beaten. This older woman will worry less now that she knows about this site. Bless you all.
