Flashing power light is indicating an error code so please count how many times it is flashing pauses for 3 seconds and repeats the blink pattern and post that info here to troubleshoot the problem.

Also, can you recheck TV model number that seems incorrect/ missing few alphabets/ digits?

I typed it exactly as it shows, case sensitive too
Expert:  Shahid replied 6 months ago.

TX-P42C10B is valid model, before there was P missing in number.

7 times flashing light is an error code that indicates SC board failure, this board is located on left side if you're looking at TV rear and back cover is off. Need to replace SC board to resolve the problem. Please click following link to view SC board image and part number info that can be used to search/ google it to get replacement SC board better price info to order it if you have plan to do-it-yourself..

Thank you very much!I have no technological knowledge/skills so I would not be able to do this myself. Are you able to advise how much a repair company might charge?
Customer: replied 6 months ago.
P.S. I just clicked on that link & the page wouldn't open
Expert:  Shahid replied 6 months ago.

You can expect $250 plus repair cost from local TV repair shop. Question page shows you're in UK so that link may not work, let me post different supplier links..
