Blue Flashing light on Pioneer Plasma

Hi,

We have a Pioneer PDP507XD plasma that last night decided to sitch itself off and now won't start up again.

The display is showing a flashing blue light that flashes in batches of 8 and although when you try and switch the TV on the red light comes on for a short time, we then go back to the 8 flashes of blue and no picture or sound.

Any help greatly appreciated.

PS: Tried removing the power lead for a period of time as suggested in the manual but this has not cured the problem.

Pete
