Re: Tv starts to come on, shuts off and then power LED...

I would check for loose intermitant conections,by now your set might have a few,if you are familiar with tv service you can remove the back cover and with a wooden or rubber handle tap in different areas of the chassis then plug it back in try to turn it on if the set comes on and stays on you should try tapping on the chassis to see if the set goes off,We need to find where the loose conection is to correct it for good.The set should have a few overheated areas witch will need to be resoldered.(like the convergence IC's),If you are not too familiar with servicing you should call for assistance from a servicer.Let Us know if you need more information.

I have a Panasonic PT-50DL54 50" rear projection tv. My tv screen won't come on but the fans will. The power led light flashes green like normal but than starts to flash fast for about a minute than the...

Time to get a new TV. I have similar problem. In my case, the set turns off, LED blinking green for about a minute or 2, then the set will turn on by itself. Something the LED started to blink yellow after blinking green and then shuts off. I can turn it back on. This happens 3 or 4 times in an hour. After that, the TV stays on for as many hours as I want until I shut it off.
And then the problem repeats everytime I turn it on from a cold start.
I have my eyes on the 50 inch Plasma from Panasonic. Bestbuy has one for 999.99.

TV turns on but turns itself off after short amounts of time

This set is equipped with LED diagnostics. Once it shuts down on the front of the set hold down the MENU and INPUT, (sometimes labeled DEVICE) buttons until the LED starts blinking a 2 blink sequence. For example one blink pause two blinks long pause and then repeats is the code for no problem. All of the fault codes begin with two blinks and then one through 4 blinks. I suspect that yours will be a 2 - 4 code because of loss of vertical sweep. Which is bad solder connections on the deflection yokes. A common problem with these units.

Power LED blinks red

it is a bad fan. it also could be a power supply. Quite often the real problem is dirt clogging up the fan(s) to the point that they need to be replaced. Operation of the set in a dirty environment is not a good idea
