Going crazy, because my TV apparently has an intermittent shut off problem. Then Power LED blinks 7 times cyclically. That's a tech repair of at least $250 (a local quote), probably a main PC board.

Holding on off switch and then release turns it back on in the same condition electronically as when it turned off.

During game 6 of NBA playoffs, yesterday evening, tried it, and sure enough, it works normally, like 3-4 years ago.

By now, I have ordered a new replacement TV. Should I take a chance, keep the Panasonic and pray a lot? I can cancel the order until they officially ship Tues and install Wed.

If you keep the Panasonic, you will need to have it repaired. Only you can decide.

Being old, decided to just let them take the plasma and recycle it. The guys brought over my new OLED 55 inch LG, beautiful thus far.
