Hi , I did try the "unplug for 60 second" idea, to no avail. The model # is KP-51WS520. The flashing light is 10 blinks from the "stand by " button. (This standby button is shared by the word 'timer" before the "standby" but the "timer" button seems almost like a dummy button, as it does not go on or off, or click or anthing? Thank you for responding and I will check back in the AM.
The power reset procedure was supposed to resolve the issue however if the standby light is still flashing after doing so then it indicates that there is something wrong on your TV and it will require service.
