Hey there! i finally figured it out!! If you have a computer hooked up with the HDMI cable in the back of the TV and the computer is either on screen saver mood or sleep mood then it is trying to make the television go to sleep aswell. So the only way you can have a computer hooked up to the TV is if you use the front HDMI hook up. pretty weird but thats what was wrong with mine. Hopefully that was the problem :):)

I bought this tv in August of 2008. First episode occurred in October of 2009 - after manufacturer warranty had expired. It returned back to normal. Second episode occurred in March of 2010 and never got the unit to power up.

I had an electronic service center check it out. Turns out it's a defective power unit that's misfiring. The misfire triggers the overheat error code.

Panasonic retailer wanted $575 for parts and labor.

Service center executed finely and strapped on a 6 month warranty for $375.

I will be faxing a copy of the invoice and original receipt for a reimbursement.

I found a solution that might work for a few people. I had my mine (TH-42PX80U) set up with my PS3 on HDMI1, X-Box on HDMI2 and computer on HDMI3. After moving yesterday, my PS3 and computer ended up on 3 and 1 respectively. Then this morning I had the red light for the first time in two years. Apparently the video cards on some computers cause problems for the plasma unless they're plugged into HDMI port 3 like I originally had it. I made the switch, unplugged the tv for thirty seconds, and presto, problem solved.

I have the same issue. Originally the tv just shut off, no blinking light whatsoever. Wouldn't come back on so I bought a new power supply board. After installing the new board, I now get 10 blinking lights. Does anyone have another solution for this?

Posted on Aug 05, 2010

  • dr_touny Dec 16, 2010

    I am having the same 10 blinking lights issue with my TV. I ran some diagnostics and I suspect the problem is the P board (power supply board... the only beige one). However, the 10 blinking lights can be indicative of 3 different board problems.

    1) The P Board
    2) The PA Board
    3) The H Board

    Or a combination of the above. If you already replaced the P board, try the following..

    Disconnect the connection from the PA board to the H board. Turn your TV on. If you see 10 blinking lights, your H board is fine. If you don't, replace your H board. Next, disconnect the connection from your P board to your PA board. Turn on your TV. If you see 10 blinking lights, your PA board is fine, if not, then your PA board is also messed up.

    If running both these tests still produced 10 blinking lights both times, then it could be 1 of 2 things. Either you bought a bad P board, or your PA board is messed up. The only way to differentiated is by checking voltage, which I'll assume you'd rather not do.

    Good Luck!

Same problem. Temp fix.
When plugged in, error code flash 10 times repeat.
Unplug the TV, error code should flash about 3 repeat. Wait untill it stops flashing.
Plug back in and turn on TV. If this doesn't fix it, it's a defective part/unit.

Panasonic air con - when you turn the air con on it runs for about 3 mins and then the timer light flashes. Air con will not work.


• Once abnormality has occurred during operation, the unit
will stop its operation, and Timer LEDs blink.
• Although Timer LED goes off when power supply is turned
off, if the unit is operated under a breakdown condition, the
LED will light up again.
• In operation after breakdown repair, the Timer LED will no
more blink. The last error code (abnormality) will be stored in
IC memory.
• To make a diagnosis:
1. Timer LED start to blink and the unit automatically
stops the operation.
2. Press the CHECK button on the remote controller
continuously for 5 seconds.
3. "- -" will be displayed on the remote controller display.
Note: Display only for "- -". (No transmitting signal, no
receiving sound and no Power LED blinking.)
4. Press the "TIMER" or button on the remote
controller. The code "H00" (no abnormality) will be
displayed and signal will be transmitted to the main
unit.
5. Every press of the button (up or down) will increase
abnormality numbers and transmit abnormality code
signal to the main unit.
6. When the latest abnormality code on the main unit
and code transmitted from the remote controller are
matched, power LED will light up for 30 seconds and
a beep sound (continuously for 4 seconds) will be
heard. If no codes are matched, power LED will light
up for 0.5 seconds and no sound will be heard.
7. The breakdown diagnosis mode will be canceled by
pressing the CHECK button continuously for 5 sec-
onds or without any operation the remote control for
30 seconds.
8. The LED will be off if the unit is turned off or the
RESET button on the main unit is pressed.

When you have the error code, we can work out what to do next.

Hi I have a panasonic split air conditioner. It turns itself off immediately after turning on, the timer button then flashes and that's all.... I have checked for an error code it is H00. I have also made...


Hi Tania,
Have you gone through this checking sequence.? it's from a Panasonic a/c manual. It could be something as simple as a clogged filter. Once you have rectified the fault, you will probably have to clear the fault code as described at bottom below, before it will condescend to work again.

Will not turn on red light flashing


How many times is the power light flashing? This generally is an error code from panasonic. In the tech world they call this the red light of death - panasonic plasmas had multiple issues - tell me how many flashing lights and we can go from there. when you plug it in - push power and count how many times it flashes before the pause and then it will do the same thing again and again.

Thanks,
Michael

TH-42PZ80U Panasonic Plasma, red light flashes 10 times


Panasonic said "A" board,
A board SOS Detect (Explanation)
10 Blinks SOS: The voltage regulators IC5400 and IC5401 in the A board generate SUB9V and SUB5V. The 9V and 5V from these ICs are monitored by IC1100. Any abnormality on the SUB9V or SUB5V lines, triggers the shutdown circuit and the MPU shuts down the unit. The power LED blinks 10 times.

But need to measure the connection SC2, if it short, it will be the SC board.

The knowledge obtain from: Real case of repair by myself.
