TV screen won't turn on. Standby light solid red.

My Panasonic Viera plasma TV won't turn on. It won't respond to the tv remote. If you press the power button on the side of the tv the red standby light comes on solid but the screen doesn't turn on. No sound comes out either. After the red standby light comes on the buttons on the side of the tv don't do anything, including the power button.

Is this a good question?

Now I just noticed that the solid light started blinking. It blinks 14 times and then stops for a second then blinks 14 times again.

Turn tv off at the tv. Now keep your remote stand bye button held down. Whilst held down, press tv button on. Green light should come on. From bugsy13

I tried everything to solve our similar problem with our Panasonic Vieira TV and this is the one thing that finally worked. Thank you so much!

I'm a manager at a retirement apartment block. A 94 year old resident told me her tv wouldn't come on. I went through all of the fault finding in the book, but got no answer. I put the problem into google and your response came up. I went back to the tv and lo and behold it worked! Thanks so much for posting this solution.

Panasonic TX-P42U30B. Red light on and flashes with commands from remote but does not come on. This reset worked a treat. Now changes to flashing green and then starts. Many thanks, Have since found out

that set had suffered a power cut, so this could have caused the need for a reset

OMG it worked! A million thanks!

Wow! Yes this has worked for me too! I’ve just done it and the tv came on for a few seconds but now the picture and sound has gone but the green light is now on.

Can you help anymore with this? Please!

I thought I’d fixed it but now a new problem!

My tv turned itself off. The stand by light is on. I have tried turning off at the plug and turning back on but still nothing.
