You have to reset the lamp timer per the manufacturer's instructions. Reset procedure usually comes with the lamp.

    1. Press the Menu button (use the one on top of the projector if you can--it's a little easier than the remote)
    2. Arrow to OPTION and press the right arrow (if you do not see OPTION, arrow to Advanced menu, press the right arrow, and then arrow to OPTION and press the right arrow)
    3. Arrow to LAMP TIME
    4. Press and hold the right arrow for 3 seconds
    5. Up arrow to RESET

    Ah, I thought you were getting some display. Sorry.

    While it's possible the lamp has already gone bad, I suspect that the lamp ballast, or LPSU has a problem. Could be caused by lightning or power surges. I'm afraid you're going to have to get someone to take a look under the hood.

The TV keeps shutting off, then shortly after turns back on, then shuts off again... Plugging the cord into a different wall outlet doesn't solve the problem. Please help! Thank you


I'm having the same problem. My TV will play for for awhile and then it just dims down for about 1 to 2 minutes then powers up again. The green light stays on doesn't blink at all, and there is no red light that comes on or blinks like when our lamp went out. We replaced the lamp about 6 months ago and it's been working great until this week.

See Here:

ehow.comreplace-bulb-panasonic-hdtv
as well as in your manual. Sometimes the lamp must be reseated
by removing it and reinstalling it with great care making certain
the door and all the gaps are closed tight.

If the lamp replacement or reinstallation does not solve the
problem you will likely need a service tech to look at the tv
as there are few user serviceable items for Plasma sets. Most
of the repairs are done by computer connection that downloads
the error messages and interprets what went wrong.

Hope this helps.

While it is suspicious happening so soon after lamp replacement, your main power supply may have failed. In earlier sets, these were problems that eventually happened.

RCA DLP HD50LPW166 Works fine for 15sec


Same Problem here. After some investigating and speaking with one Lamp supplier they told me to replace the Lamp Ballast first (this is mine EUC 120 P/H11 9137 008 09405). I found one on Ebay. Since this may also wear out the bulb, I may have to replace that also. If I can get my TV working (HD50LPW166YX6) for around $150.00 for both, I'll be happy even if i get only 6 month of use out of it. Did I mention the TV was free? :o) Hope this helps.
