My electric blanket is flashing the letter P and I can't select temperature.
What brand is your electric blanket? I see Flashing FF light. But I did not see any P anywhere.
If you have a digital control, it is designed to flash "FF" on the display to notify you that a problem may have been discovered. Gradient controls and warming throw controls use a blinking indicator light for this purpose.
Follow the instructions on the flag tag to reset the control or follow the steps below.
Unplug the system from wall outlet.
Check that the control is well connected to the module.
Plug the power cord into the wall outlet.
Set the control to "on".
"P" could be your pre-heat mode. The heat setting will change to the last setting after 1.5 hours. If you want to change to another setting during the pre-heat period, press the up
or down button.
I also did not see a P code in my research.
I would contact the company itself.
Try unplugging it for several hours and then plug back in. My mattress pad heater does this once in awhile. Unplugging it resets it. Also check your cords to ensure plugged into the blanket well.
We have a Biddeford blanket with 2 controls. One control has an E showing with no heat. Can you help me out?

Below is a customer response I found on a customer review site:
"E message fixed
We had the same problem. Our controller display just said "E". for us it meant that the controller cord was disconnected from the mattress pad at the foot of the bed. Try that."
The site also had many negative reviews about Biddeford customer service:
We appreciate the assistance with this - ours displayed "E" as well and it was the connection on the mattress being not plugged in all of the way.
I got a error code E4 non one side of electric blanket
E shows on controller even if I switch it to the other side? How do I fix this?
My blanket control has the E display. How do I fix it?

My Biddeford electric blanket keeps showing me "E", but is plugged in to the wall and my blanket!
This is the link to their page. http://www.bidd m/contact-us.asp They even have a toll-free phone number.
There are several things you can try before giving up.
Unplug unit from wall socket - unplug cord from blanket - plug cord back into blanket (be sure it is the proper way as some have a certain top and bottom) - plug unit back into electric socket.
If still getting error message then you may have to call Biddeford for help.
You do not say how old your blanket is but maybe it is still under the 5 year warranty and can be safely repaired/replaced. Here is a link to check warranty information and also a contact number if it is out of warranty.
If your blanket is older than 5 years you may need to check this recall information.
The control for my Sealy electric blanket says E. What is the error? I have checked the plugs and they look fine.
I have a dual control electric blanket. One side works fine, but the other control screen displays an E and will not work. Can this be corrected?
We have a Sunbeam electric blanket with a duel control. The main control is flashing 88-auto off-stay on. I am trying to find out why.
