Question about Panasonic PT-40LC12 40" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Television shuts down as if thermal problem, but cool

Television powers up, lamp lights, picture and sound. After 30 seconds (give or take), set shuts down. Both the exhaust and intake fans shut down; however, an internal fan blowing on a PCB beneath the lamp area continues to run. The lamp indicator light flashes 4 times every five seconds after this occurs. Unplugging the unit and plugging it back in twelve hours later results in the same problem. In fact, the internal fan I mentioned above comes on as soon as the unit is plugged in. Thank you for any help that you can provide. I was recently laid off and am on a bit of a shoe-string budget.

Samsung HLS5087WX/XAA DPL shuts down after 30 - 60 seconds, 3 blinking lights


I beleive from what you have told me that most likely it is just a lamp issue, there are a lot of so called original equipment lamps and counterfit lamps on the market that will barely give you 1000 hours run time. When it comes to Television lamps cheeper is not better. Make certain to buy an original Samsung lamp, you should get about 3500 to 4000 hours from it. If you need further assistance or have questions please reply to continue.

Fan issue with hd-52g787 52 inch


The lamp is protected if fan does not work it has a thermal fuse that will cut power to lamp etc.

One of the real issues is the fans intake air from front of set and exhaust it out rear---sets and fans get coated with fine dust and cause problems including in some cases set shutting off.

Ok so I changed the lamp in my wd 62327 and now I have no picture or sound. The lamp light blinks the turns red and the whole tv shuts off. Any suggestions? Someone said to reset it but don't know...


If issue was different from before you replaced the lamp---remove lamp cartridge and look to see the place where it plugs in that the 2 pin socket the lamp connects to is not out of position or got bent when you replaced the lamp.

A reset if it has it is a recessed tiny button on front control strip up front--those when plugged in will blink (green) for 70 seconds and go out and then set can be turned on.

General: the set will shut down for a lot of reasons-----from a lot of dust inside on the fans (this one should have 3 fans) and I have seen it not allow the set to come up and then shut down---the sets intake a lot of dust thru the front and if the fans get coated the set will detect one or more are not turning at the correct speed, turn the lamp off and shut the set down.

Let me know what you find and give me more information if possible.

Hitachi 50V715 power on/off problem


I would check to see if any of the fans stop turning or don't turn when set turns on. They do have sensors monitoring them and the set will shut down if they are not turning. I believe there are three fans around the chassis.
Hope this helps,

SOUND AND PIC GOES OUT FOR 30 SECONDS, THEN PIC COMES BACK THEN SOUND. IS THIS THE LAMP OR THERMAL FUSE OR WHAT.


The lamp is going bad. If it was the thermal fuse it would not be intermittent. It is very common for some Sony sets like yours to do exactly what you describe when the lamp is going bad.
