Usually a flashing power light on a rear projection TV means a bad bulb, try replacing the bulb. Also try unplugging it for 10-15 minutes, then come back and plug it in and try again. Also if its been a long time since its been serviced it could be dust buildup causing overheating, do you hear the cooling fan running? It could also be a failed cooling fan. Generally the first thing i do with projection TV's is clean them, clean all the vents, pull the bulb out, clean out the cooling fan and bulb housing, and then try a new bulb. If that doesn't fix it then its a bigger internal problem and there is no quick fix but have it serviced.
it works!! First i took off the front panel. Just check your manual
for instructions, very easy to do. If you do not have a manual just
down load one from google.. The instruction are easy to follow. The
screw they have you loosen with a alan wrench is attached to the
plastic, so you do not have to worry about dropping it inside the tv.
Removing the lamp was simple. once out you will notice on either side
are two small mesh screens. One of mine was 80% blocked with dust, the
other side was only 30-40% covered. I used a vacuum to remove the
blockage, i did not want the dust and dirt to go inside the bulb. i
then cleaned all around the lamp. Reinstalled, and we are go to go.
The kids are happy and i am happier since my wife not be buying a new
total cost of repair $.00
time required to fix, less than 15 minutes.
Also when my TV was loosing sound and picture and then return. I did
turn off my TV, then turned on. I nothiced a red blinking light. Mine
flashed 5 times. After some reserch, 5 times is video related, bulb or
video board. google red flashing light with the model you have and you
will find what all the codes mean.
So if yours is flashing 5 times try the above, it might work for you and it is well worth the time before you call a tech and drops hundreds of dollars.
hope this helps.
when your tv blanks out, turn off the tv and then it back on. below the power button usually flashes green light. does yours flash red? if so you need to count how many flashes. the number of flashes will help in resolving your problem. then google red flashing light sony and you will find what the red flashing lights mean.
It very well could be the ballast. I unfortunately have this tv and keep extra bulbs because they go out about once a year. Last time when I replaced the bulb the tv blinked and the red lamp light flashed like it does when the bulb is bad. Ballast repair kit fixed it up. This is certainly a design issue but you'll get no help from Panasonic. If tv comes on the goes out after a while, clean the fan filter.
Remove the lower front panel by removing the 2 large round screw heads at the lower back corners, one on each side. Remove the retaining screw on the right side of the metal horizontal retaining strip in front of the bulb holder, remove bulb retaining screw in the upper left corner of the bulb holder. Pull the bulb holder out towards you and check for dust build up on the top screen on the bulb casing, if there is an abundance of dust it will restrict the airflow across the face of the bulb which causes it to heat up and turn off. Once the dust has been cleaned your bulb should now work as it should without a problem.
please check how many times the red light flashes. If it is 3 times this means that the lamp cover is not fastened securely.
If the red light flashes 5 times this means that the lamp driver is defect.
