Hi My Panasonic Viera plasma 3d television won't switch on.

Customer Question

Hi
My Panasonic Viera plasma 3d television won't switch on. Its 2 and a half years old and all that happens is the power light flashes a few times, pauses then flashes again. Any idea how to resolve this issue? I used it a day ago and it was fine, turned it off when I finished with it. Then came home the next day and then this.
