TX-L42 E5B


Novice Member
Just a bit of advice needed .I have a 55 inch Panasonic Viera smart TV .Gone back to Manufacturer under guarantee, to be repaired .I got a TX-L42 E5B from the retailer while waiting for my own TV to be repaired.When I connect my Sky box to the TV it causes the TV to go into blinking red light. Continuous blinking and will not turn on .However when I power off my Sky box the TV will turn on and work perfectly .Just wondering what I am doing wrong .I am also afraid my damage the TV by trying it again.Thanks in advance .

Your Sky box...Sky, SkyHD, Sky+HD or Sky Q?
Connected how, scart or HDMI?
Have you tried a different cable?
Have you tried a different input on the TV?
Make sure the TV is switched off when connecting/disconnecting.
