I Have a Panasonic tv TX-26LXD52 quite old, around the time of HD ready.
Assistant: How old is your TX-26LXD52?
Customer: Its worked fine since I had it but now wont turn on. The red led flashes a number of times and a slight glimmer on the screen then goes dead.
Assistant: Anything else you want the TV Expert to know before I connect you?
Customer: not sure exactly how old maybe 12 years?

Hello! are you there?

Hi sorry for the delay, I wasnt able to get online yesterday.

If its flashing rapidly this points to a faulty power board, based on the age of the TV its likely to cause one issue after the other over the coming years, so would advise against repair.

However that said you can source he part here, for around £20, but with this model its hard to tell if there are other parts also at fault, so would allow £50 in parts as there is also a second PSU (sub board) which may also need to be replaced.
