Hey guys I have a 55" ST30 that's about 16 months old that won't power up & after holding the power button for a few seconds, I get a 14 flash code. Anyone else seen this on this model? I'm outa warranty by 4 months or so. Has anyone had good luck with Panasonic helping them out with repair bills 4 months out? They said I could submit the estimate to them for review...after watching a few vids on YouTube I'm actually considering getting a manual & looking into it myself. The boards do not look hard to change, & can even be repaired if you can see a blown capacitor...I'm not a TV repairman, but I've had electronics training in the automotive field...am I crazy?? Anyone seen or done these types of repairs themselves? What kind of failures are common to Panny plasmas-capacitors? Thermal fuses? Any info would be great! Thank you all for your time!
