It keeps doing this cycle until I unplug it. Panasonics helpline is closed so until the morning I am stuck. Has anything like this happened to anyone else?
here is a little update on my situation...
Last night 10pm the tv refused to turn on. I pressed the power button, the red light came on, tv made a clicking sound, redlight went off, repeat. I unplugged the tv and let it sit for 10 minutes and tried again. Same thing. I unplugged it and let it sit for an hour.
11pm. Plug tv back in, press power, tv starts with no problems. I turned it off and back on. So far so good. I leave the tv on while I do some work on my computer.
12:30am. Tv shuts off for no reason whatsoever. I unplug the tv.
1:00am. Plug tv back in. Powers up with no problems. Watch tv until 4am. I assume all is well.
The next day...
12pm. I planned on calling Panansonic but the tv turned on and off several times with no problems. I think I had the tv running non stop for 4 hours.
8pm. Tv starts up with no problems.
9pm. TV shuts off for no reason again. Unpluged it
11pm. Plug TV back in. Starts with no problems. Works perfectly untill....
1:30pm. TV shuts off again for no reason. I unplugged it again and now I am here writing this message.
Does anyone have any idea of what could be causing this? It is really starting to drive me crazy. I really wish these things could have gone wrong when Panasonics help line is open. I really really hope I didn't get a TV with a bad power supply or something like that. I really love the TV, when it is actually working that is.
EDIT: Plugged back in 2am running fine ever since. Calling Panasonic in the morning.
