About a month ago, I experienced my first dose of my Painarsechronic TH50PZ80 TV not switching on once warm and being presented with 2 flashing red lights.
Of course the problem was intermittent and the repair agent I lugged the TV too could find no problem
Had to take time off work, organise a trailer, box it, pay $99 for the quote and the TV was scratched by the repair agents just to rub salt in to my wounds
Had no problems 'til a few nights back when my wife switched it off and on again within a few minutes after the TV had been on several hours.
The last 2 nights before going to bed I have switched the TV Off and then immediately on again and copped 2 blinking lights so at least it's now consistent. Unplug the power cable, leave for 10 minutes or so and she fires up.
From reading other posts, it sounds like I'm in for a nightmare regarding tracking the exact problem (despite 2 blinks suposedly meaning it's a dead 15v SOS D ) and getting it fixed but if anyone has experienced the identical symptoms and successfully fixed the problem, I'm all ears (or eyes in this case)
I've only had the TV 2 years and as much as I like the Panasonic Plasma's image, I won't be buying PainArseChronic products again as recall Panasonic Home Theatre Projector owners having many problems a few years back and being told to suck eggs by Panasonic!
Panajunk, I hope you manage to resurect your set and will be interested to read how you get on!
Cheers with Beers

I've already replaced the D board which was supposed to take care of the 2 blink problem - and it didn't!
I still have the 2 blink - 10 blink problem. The 10 blink is supposed to be the main power supply, so now I've ordered a refurbished main power supply and will try that.
If the power supply doesn't fix it the TV is going to the junk yard and I'll never buy another Panasonic product as long as I live.
It's going to be a week or so before I get the board, so stay tuned and I'll let you know how I make out after I change the power supply.
