    nothing wet underneath, unless it dried by the time I got it open and looked. I'm new here so I don't know what is legal on this site. I know that the bulb is split in half. My ex looked at it and said it was the bulb.

  • jen-nay-gump Oct 30, 2008

    It has three tubes. the middle one is the one that is broke. the chassis No. is ITC222, the part No. is GRNHYB-570.

  • jen-nay-gump Oct 31, 2008

    well, what I look at kind of looks like a ********.....flat on each end and long tube in the middle. That middle part is what is broke. I'll try to contact that tritronics and see what I can come up with. If not I'll be back on here....maybe I'll take a picture of it and post it so you can see what I'm talking about. Thanks!

  • jen-nay-gump Oct 31, 2008

    looks like a *********.....I don't know why it bleeped that out.....



    Yeah, I think I can find someone that is electronically handy....

  • jen-nay-gump Oct 31, 2008

    still don't know why they are bleeping it out. How about a barbell?

  • jen-nay-gump Nov 01, 2008

    No, the tv doesn't come on at all. it tries then makes a crackling noise.

  • jen-nay-gump Nov 11, 2008

    Ok, doing this part now. Got a guy friend over here trying to figure it out. Been out sick for awhile.

  • jen-nay-gump Nov 11, 2008

    Couldn't figure it out. Just going to call a repairman. Thanks for your help.

Panasonic TY-LA1000 has good lamp, but black screen. light is blinking green, then solid green, then after some time goes red?


We have a PT-50LC14. We replaced the lamp 6 months ago with a TY-LA1000 bulb we bought from a company online (not directly from Panasonic) and it worked for 6 months. Then the TV started turning off on it's own...sometimes it would not come back on for an hour or so. We called the lamp company and we luckily had 1 day left on our 6 month warranty!! They sent us a replacement bulb and the TV would never power on. It would try to power up, but the bulb would never ignite. The power light would flash and then the lamp light would flash every 5 seconds. I had a friend that has the same type of TV and she ordered her bulb directly from Panasonic. I borrowed her lamp and it powered right up. We then called the online company and they sent us yet another replacement bulb, and I tried it today and it works. It seems like these TVs are very particular about the type of bulb used. Next time, we will be ordering ours directly from Panasonic and just paying the extra $100. We have been without our big screen for 2 very long months! I had called a local tv repair shop, called Panasonic directly, and read through countless internet forums, and I thought we were going to have to replace the ballast or get a ballast repair kit and start messing with the circuit board.
