Summary: This TV died with the blinking 10 times LED issue and it has no obvious blown parts. We had this set for only 26 months when it died. I've checked several websites and Forums to find out this is a very common problem and fixing it will only lead to it happening again most likely. Bad design will not buy a panny again.
Fatal design flaw makes unit unusable when viewing TV or movies in native 4:3 format
3 October 2010
Summary: The issue described in the last paragraph will not be a problem for any user who never uses the 4:3 format option when using this TV, but for me it caused me to return what would have otherwise been a fine TV As a movie buff, and just a person with general sense, I naturally want to see an uncropped version of any movie or TV channel I watch. This, and I assume all Panasonic units, offers four screen formats: 4:3, Zoom, Full, and Justified.
