Is this something that's been addressed by Panasonic? Did they make notice that this is an issue that has been rectified for 2009/2010 models?

Its been acknowleged but I dont believe there was any intent orf addressing anything. Its by design, apparently.

Guess thats that.

has any one out there gotten panny to make good on their defective sets, either by repair or replacement. I have a unique problem and that is I live in St thomas and there are no techs here and no panny stores. my only option is replacement.

Default 10 blinking lights Pansonic TH-50PZ85U

I just got the 10 blinking lights power death full time. It happened a
few weeks ago, and powering it off for a bit and back on fixed it, but now its dead to the bone. I've tried letting it sit unplugged over night.
21 months old. My son has a 46" that is less than a year old, so still
under warranty, but over the past 3 weeks, he has had the repairman out 3 times and awaiting the 4th as he can't get it fixed - it lasted 15 minutes last time. I liked this TV so much I recommended it to a friend, who also has had the exact same problem.

Whomever it is here saying he doesn't think its that widespread of a problem, I have to disagree as I don't know that many people that I discuss tv issues with, but 3 have this problem and that can't be all
considence. Sorry, but I'm going back to SONY after getting the $600 estimate as what happens when that board doesn't fix things like for my son, and I'm stuck with another $600 part. Thanks, but NO THANKS on Panasonic ever showing up in my house again. I
have had SONY for 25 years and never had to repair one and only
bought the Panasonic because SONY stopped making plasma TV's.

Does anyone here know just what board is replaced for the 10 blinking lights? I'd at least like to try fixing it myself if I can find the
right board. The quote included $250 for parts.

Default Blinking Lights of Death: Still an issue in March 2010.

I received a TC-P42G25 today.
The packing appeared intact and with no visible damage to the carton.
It installed into my home theater system with no problems. I only have on input into the tv, which I put into HDMI input #1 (of course).

After approximately 1 hour, the TV screen went blank. The red power LED light is blinking 7 times, then stops for a few seconds, then repeats. Remote control and power button on the tv have no effect. I tried unplugging the set for a minute and re-plugging it in, tried moving the HDMI input from HDMI #1 to HDMI #3, and tried SD content channels in HDMI #3, cycling the power to the tv for 30 seconds between each test.

Still no picture, no power, just 7 blinking lights.

Sure was a nice picture for that one hour, though.

Just exchange it. Every mfg has the occasional dud. It is unavoidable, but Panasonic has historically had the highest reliability, so you just got unlucky.

Good luck!

Default Th-42pz77u

Both my brother and I picked up the highly rated (by Consumer Reports) TH-42PZ77U Plasma TV for Christmas back in 2008. My set lasted till just past New Years and then had the blinky 7/10 death. I called the Panasonic toll-free Consumers Hotline # on Jan 4th (Sunday) and actually talked to a Human without much effort. The technician worked with me to diagnose the problem via reboot/reading the codes and promptly told me that would need to be professionally serviced. He then put me on hold for a minute or so and actually conferenced in a Local Tech whom was able to come out in a couple days. Service Guy actually brought me a loaner set of same size/brand and had my old one back to me in two weeks time (replaced two(?) internal boards).

By far the best Customer experience I've ever had with any electronic product.

Flash forward to today. My brothers TV is now experiencing the same problems, Blink 7 Code, though is well out of the 1 year warranty.

Hopefully Panasonic will help him out as seems that this model/year is problematic.

Seems like the Panasonics are quite as reliable as they are touted to be.

Apparently, due to the pressure for lower pricing, quality is becoming a casualty. Not just in Panasonics, but in all CE.

I disagree. No doubt cost cutting has hurt Panasonic reliability some, but not nearly as much as the other mfg. Other than the black level issue how many long threads are there about Panasonic problems versus the other mfg? Considering also that Panasonic sells more plasmas than anyone else easily, I would say that alone proves that Panasonic is still the most reliable brand easily.

I bet you cannot find one brand that never has issues.

My point was that they all have issues.

Hi Guys

I bought the Panasonic TX-P42G15 in January, and today I too was struck by the fierce venom of the 7 blinks of death. I had my PS3 hooked up when it happened, and i've tried to switch between all 4 HDMI ports, but no help. Luckily, we have a 24 month warranty on almost all products in Denmark, so there should be no problem having it fixed. Is it worth having it fixed however, or should I get my money back and buy another TV? I got it at a very good price, almost 30% off, so it would be difficult to get a TV of the same amazing standard, for the same price. Do you think I can negotiate a deal so that I get get a new TV if the same things happen again no matter what?

I have no idea how it works with techsupport in Europe, but I'll have trouble sending the TV back since i threw away the box. I bought it online, and I think the retail store is in bloody Norway.

Any ideas, tips, experiences, thoughts on what to do while I wait for a new TV?

On that we agree. There is no "perfect" HDTV or any other product to my knowledge. Mass production lines will always have a few lemons but some mfg have much more than others. Of course there is also the point of how well mfg take of the customers who get such unlucky sets.

Past history has shown that Panasonic is at the top for this as well.
