I have a Panasonic...

I have a Panasonic Plasma TV, Model TH-42PX80A which will not turn on. The indicator light flashes red nine times, then stops for a few seconds, and flashes nine times again. Got any clues what the problem might be? Regards, Greg.

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

Yes.

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

Yes, and I have tried it from different power sources.

Thank you, ***** ***** didn't work.

If you are sure that it blinks red 9 times pause 9 times and so on then I do not have good news as the plasma panel is bad....

It may be leaking or it may have a short circuit within the panel either way its not an economic option to replace it,let me know your thoughts here
