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

1 Answer

No Picture No Sound

When I turn the power on all I get is a blinking green power light and nothing else. The lamp is new. The cooling fan does not appear to be running like normal either. I have heard of lamp ballast issues or power supply problems. How can I determine what is the problem?

Check the lamp first ,it could have blown.If the lamp looks good consider the following,The power supply gives the ballast the voltage it needs to strike the lamp,its hard to tell without doing some voltage measurements,you can not measure the output of the ballast but the voltage from the power supply to the ballast yes. Call professional help if you are not familiar with safety when servicing tv's.

Put a new bulb in that i got from e-bay, tv switches on perfect but after a little while it turns itself off then red and green light start to flashing. i don't know what the problem is ????


Hello, I try to help. But your questions not spesific.
Below are conditions lamp indicators that appear blinking and solutions (for samsung) :

1. If Timer and Lamp blinking --> Auto timer on/off was been set, picture will appear ~ 25 second.
2. If Timer and Standby/Temp blinking --> A cooling fan inside the set is not operating properly.
3. If Lamp and Standby/Temp blinking --> The lamp cover on the rear of the set is not installed properly.

I hope that solve your problem.
Thanks

New lamp and still blinking lamp light.fan running fast and pulsing turns on and off and temp light blinks when using remote no light from lamp


MIne did the same thing, thought it was the lamp, bought a new one....still did it, figured it wasn't the ballast because the light came on for about 3-5 seconds - was told the ballast was bad, the ballast supplies high power to the lamp - if it is weak, it will not supply enough power and lamp shuts down. Bought a new ballast on Amazon for $62.00 - problem solved. I also tried a cooling fan - NOT the problem, was the ballast

the lamp may have overheated. check it for bulges, black spots or fogging. replace it if you have any of those. since the lamp uses vaporized mercury, the only way to test it is in another projector. it may also be the colorwheel or the fans. if all of the fans are running and the colorwheel spins up, it may be the ballast. you could send it in to a sharp service center for repair. if you chose to, try av solutions in ny. they're really good. www.avsolutionsny.com

Sony KDF-46E2000 - Screen Goes Blank


You definitely have a bad lamp. Sony rates the lamp life at between 4000 and 8000 hours. There are 3 things that effect the lamp life, listed in order of importance:
1) number of times the lamp is turned on and off. Every time the lamp is first fired, it takes life off the lamp. Customers I see that turn the TV on in the morning, leave it on all day and then turn it off on the evening can get up to 12000 lamp hours
2) ventilation. Be sure you have at least 6 inches of open space all the way around the set and that the vents are clear of dust and debris.
3) power. If the power is interrupted when the set is on, there cannot be a proper cool down cycle. The fans will run after you turn the set off to properly cool it down, if the power is lost this cannot happen. If your power is unreliable, buy a small UPS to let the set finish a cool down cycle

Occasionally a lamp will faill before the average lamp time due to being defective. from your purchase date it sounds like you got about average lamp time. Be sure to purchase AN ORIGINAL SONY LAMP as a replacement, becuase the aftermarket lamps are bad news, Be sure to rate this solution. Thanks!
