Question about Panasonic PT-60LCX64 Television
Dear FixYa Guru,
My 60inch Panasonic just prompted me the "Air Filter needs cleaning" message. Not in that exact context but it is due for one after being owned for nearly 3 years. My request is for directions to manually access and clean this air filter without hiring the professionals. To be more specific, where are the spots to clean inside and around the television. I've heard that it is a pretty nickel to have it done by the pros.
Many thanks in advance,
Cleaning filter for the Panansonic PT-501LCX64.
I just had a T.V. tech do this. The filters are located on the two removable filters on the back side of the T.V. They look like the speaker units. He removed those two units, unplugged them & set them on the floor. He took some type of electronic cleaner with a cloth & wiped them down. The filters themselves are plastic. He explained that air flows through some tube connected to these plastic filters for cooling down below. He admitted they didn't look dirty--put everything back together & it is working fine now.
I imagine that dirty or not the timer is automatically set for every 400 hrs. of use to give you the prompt that the filter needs cleaning & will shut off in one minute so you can call a T.V. tech?
So to reset the timer--follow the other detailed prompts listed on this board & or use your owners manual & follow the prompts for replacing the bulb. That should take you somewhere to reset the timer--so you have another 400 hours of operation.
I believe it's with the T.V. turned off--hold down the down volume on your tv itself while holding the swap button on the remote control for 5-7 seconds---then follow the prompts. You should see a prompt for replacing a bulb & then one for filter cleaning. Then just reset the timer.
Hopefully this will help?
