@alsf250 start with this information:

14 BLINKS This code is triggered if there are abnormalities during data exchange with the standby CPU ROM. No F15V connected to the A board at plug-in (Open connection of both pins 10 & 11 between P6 and A6) Shorted F15V developed after the TV is up and running. Holding the power switch for over 5 seconds after the unit has gone into shut down and it’s in lock mode with the power LED solid red (Note: the LED stays on if the power button is momentarily pressed). Commonly failed boards are the A- P

This model also has issues with the SC board " if you have a multimeter , measure the resistance at Vsus lines to the SC and SS and see if dead short. TV off .

If shorted then you'll have to isolate Vsus power to each board (SC , SS) and check at the SC and SS connectors.

Or , remove the Vsus power lead from the SC, turn the TV on, if the front LED starts flashing like it's starting up and then stops with a different SOS code (other than solid or 14 blinks) that would indicate what was just removed was shorted.

If no change, reconnect (check there's no residual voltage present), do same for SS. From here

Could be SC or SS.

I’ve got the 14 blinking red power light on the front panel of my Panasonic 2011 plasma smart 3-D TV I paid $1750 for and not happy at all about it. It’s been sitting in the back guest bedroom for over five years and only the past nine months brought it to the living room as our main TV and maybe watch three movies on it in those 5+ years and that’s it has been turned off and unplug from that power supply all this time. That is actually absurd for TVs that Panasonic knew there were issues with the continue to sell them to unsuspecting consumers and now they don’t even make TVs, probably because of this problem in the overwhelming at Jack’s and a man’s from Customer for refunds are replacements, and their solution was to get out of the TV making business altogether. Now we have one TV making country for the most part, South Korea.

What are the estimates to get this TV working with the 14 blinking red Power light? I remember being so proud and happy with the picture quality and the 3-D when I first purchased but only watched avatar, and a couple other 3-D movies when the excitement factor wore off and stopped using the TV for over five years
