Hi everybody.

I have a 2002 Panasonic plasma, model number TH42PW4.
I know it is getting on a bit now, but it suddenly switched off on me and I don't suspect it to be a major problem.

I switched it on one day and it stayed on for a few seconds before going on standby.
The red LED then blinks 1 long, 1 short, 1 long, 1 short, etc.
This is what happens now whenever I switch it on.

I obviously don't want to spend out on it at a repair shop as they aren't worth much now, but I did pay a good bit for it when new so thought I would have a go myself.

I have opened it up and can't see anything obviously wrong, can anybody offer me any advice what to look for?
Any advice would be much appreciated as I am completely stuck!

Two blinks can be a problem with any of the following Boards:

SC - Scan Out
SS - Scan Out
C - Data Drive

Sorry, only a technician will be able to find out which Board is defective.
