Thank you for the reply. Please check the red blinking light for any pattern (for example: 7 blinks, pause, 7 blinks, pause, etc.) and let me know what you get.

from memory i think it blinked red three short,a gap and one long
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 2 months ago

Panasonic sets don't blink like that, it would be a continuous pattern of the same blinks over and over. The blinking is a code, and each pattern of blinks is specific to the problem.

Do you need assistance with this, or is the TV working now?

Customer reply replied 2 months ago
it hasnt stopped yet. this problem started last week end. I stopped and started it several times and this is the longest it has stayed on for that time. could it be dusty or overheating.
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
it flashes ten times and has a brake and flashes ten times again continually
Customer reply replied 2 months ago
it has shut down again flashing red ten times continuasly
TV Technician: Aric, Technician replied 2 months ago

Thanks for the reply. A 10 blink code indicates a failure of the Mainboard or Power Board that's occurring and will ultimately require repairs. It's not dust causing it but rather wearing components within the TV itself. I would suggest running it for as long as you can and when the issue becomes unbearable to simply replace the TV. On this 7 year old set the cost of repairs is between $350-$450 parts and labor and that is what a new 50" LED 4K Smart TV starts at these days.

Other than that, I'm sorry for the bad news and wish there were a quick fix.

Let me know if you need more help. Also, could you please click a POSITIVE RATING (3-5 stars at the top of the page) and click SUBMIT so that I am credited for working with you today?
