Question about Panasonic PT-50LC13 50" Rear Projection HDTV

Open Question

Nov 2004 Panasonic DLP HDTV made popping noise. Doesn't work now.

Turned on my 2004 Panasonic 46" last night (exactly four years old this month - it should last much longer than this) and it made a loud 'popping' noise followed by a colorful, thin, horizontial line across the middle of the TV screen.

Any suggestions on how to diagnose this problem would be greatly appreciated. Repair men tell me they want $100 just to look at it and the amount will NOT be applied toward the cost to repair; if it's worth repairing. I'd be upset if there is something I can do ahead of time to troubleshoot whether it's even worth fixing before paying $100 for someone to tell me the same thing.

Thanks for your help,

Stephanie

This is pure conjecture but I think the cooling fan has failed or is running slow.
Check to see if it can still be heard.

This system seems to be a bit weak on reliability.

SOURCE: Panasonic PT-47X54J Not working

Probably vertical output IC451. I just changed one and is working perfectly now. On CRT tvs, loss of vertical drive will result in a thin white line across center of screen. In these projection sets the vertical and horizontal are fedback and used for convergence. Loss of vertical will cause shutdown same a power supply failure.

No picture, siren type noise as restarting


My Toshiba dlp 62hm116 was used for 3 months then stored for 2 years, I turned it on yesterday and it makes a loud grinding noise which I think is probably from the exhaust fan area and the picture is black except white at both vertical sides. It worked fine the last time I used it 2 years ago. Any ideas?

Samsung DLP HL-R4266W..no sound or picture. TV is completely dead


Assuming the noise is a high-pitched whine, then yes, it is the color wheel.  If the color wheel goes out, the TV will turn on for a while, then turn off when it can't establish color wheel sync.  The color wheel has to be in sync with the mirrors on the DLP, so if sync can't be established, the TV turns off.
You can order a new color wheel from Sears or partstore.com (among other places) and replace it yourself, if you are so inclined.

Samsung dlp


HLS4266W 43" dlp. In less than 1 yr whining grew worse, but did know what it was. Year passed with warranty and lamp went out. Replaced lamp. Worked for 3.5 hrs. Turned on next day and did not work. Got another lamp, but did not work. Figured out might be color wheel. Replaced it too. TV started up. Watched that night. Turned on next day, heard loud pop. Lamp never came on. Withdrew and reinstalled lamp a couple times to see if that worked. Did not. Currently, with new lamp and color wheel installed, lamp light blinks, but no lamp comes on. What now?
