Question about Panasonic PT-52LCX65 44" HDTV
I was watching may Panasonic PT-52LCX65 the other night and the picture went out. There was a red indicator on the power on light and there was a red light flashing on the right hand side. I waited a couple of minutes and turned it back on and it came on and was working just fine. The a few minutes later it went out again and won't come back on. Now when I power it up it just has a flashing green power on light and no pic. Never got the bulb timer message that I know of. Basically I thing it is buld time and I want to make sure. I am living in Korea work of the Army and it takes a while for repairs. Any tips would be great.
Last Saturday evening, I experienced the exact same behavior on my Panasonic PT-52LCX65; it shut itself off without warning. I turned it back on, and it shut itself back off after about a minute, and the red "Lamp" LED on the TV began blinking.
I never got any warning message that the lamp was about to go out, but I've just replaced the lamp and now the TV is working just fine. We had to mail-order the new lamp, because neither H. H. Gregg (where I bought the TV on "Black Friday" 3 years ago), Fry's Electronics, nor Best Buy carries the part locally.
My wife found the new bulb WITH its holding apparatus for something like $120 online, roughly half what other sites were charging. We paid roughly $55 for UPS Next Day Air. The first bulb that was sent arrived broken (some UPS rep apparently thought "Fragile" meant "Shake and Drop"), but the company we ordered from cheerfully rushed us another one, and the second one was in much better shape. (Panasonic doesn't pack these replacement bulbs very well; there's a heavy bulb with a lot of air around it that Panasonic doesn't fill.)
More details available if anyone wants 'em. Hope this helps. -- ChuckE
