The power light keeps flashing and the tv won't turn on. If you unplug for a minute and hit the power button it sound like it is coming on then it shuts off and the red power light flashes slowly. The TV is a Panasonic 1080i HDTV, about 6-7 years old.

Hi - I am now running into this same issue and have the same TV and bought it around 6-7 years ago as well. We bought it from Tweeter back in the day. So what did you do to fix the problem? I waited a few minutes but now am going to wait 24 hours before plugging it back in. You advice is greatly appreciated.

Thank you,

Sounds like your capacitors have gone on the power board. If you can solder, then its a cheap repair!

I found that unplugging the tv for 5 minutes completely from the wall does the trick, otherwose it is a bigger issue.

I am having the same issue. We aren't big tv watchers either so we haven't even used it all that much. Not sure if that matters but this is just ridiculous. It's mounted in an entertainment center so this is going to be a bitch.....I've tried unplugging it. Worked the first time. Not now. Thanks for all the responses. At least I know where to start now.:pt1cable:

Count the flashes. Panasonic is really good about that with its coding. You can Google the listing, and the amount of flashes will yell you exactly which component is bunk. My pana plasma had 6 flashes, so it turned out to be the SC pcb which is the main buffer board. $400 part, 3 mins to fix once the back is off (that took 10 mins with almost 30 screws). Very simple fix, there's only 5 boards and a power converter in my pana.
