I called the Panasonic Concierge service and they took my info and gave me a case number. They also had me plug it back into the surge protector. It works for now, they said to try for a week in the surge protector see what happens. My problem is reported and if something happens after the warranty ends next month I'll be covered.
They also gave me the number for their Customer Care Plan (800-637-2007), I will call on Monday to see what extending the warranty costs.Edit:
01/18 Acting up again (2 blinks) while on surge protector swapping back to wall plug and it works, let it go like this for a few days to see what happens.Edit:
01/19 Now it won't power up at all, getting the 2 blink code, GS is coming in 2 days to look at it.Edit:
01/20 Will power up if i let it cool for a 2 - 3 hours, so seems to be heat related. GS Tech was here, he called Panasonic, may be power supply related, he will order one, let me know when it comes in.Edit:
01/30 GS replaced power supply board - the caps were bulged a bit on the original so it was bad, however still won't power on. Power LED now blinks 10 times.Edit:
02/03 The saga continues....GS tech came again today, this time with Panasonic troubleshooting guide. GS Tech followed the troubleshooting guide, he found the newly replaced power supply board was DOA, so he replaced with the old one, (the one with bulging caps), now blinking 2 times and won't power on at all.Edit:
02/04 GS Tech emailed me the troubleshooting guide for Panasonic TH-nnPZ8XU, if you want it, pm me. Not sure about posting the thing here.Edit
02/10 TV Fixed - Panasonic advised the GS Tech to replace the Power Supply board again, as they said they had seen my errors before.
Took 3 weeks and 4 visits by the GS Tech. Had the first Panasonic Power Supply not been DOA my problem would have been solved several weeks ago.
GS Tech was OK, however I had to call GS 800 number to get status on parts shipment and GS house calls, GS Tech was not good at scheduling his visits.
BTW - GS Tech measured the Vsus and Ve volts, both matched exactly the specs printed on the chassis label, no adjustment was necessary.
