Reset Time Problem on Panasonic TV (PT-50LC13)

I have Panasonic TV. Just recieved brand new bulb (PT-50LC13) and replaced it carefully. Tryed to turn on the TV and the power light turns green and flashes slowly a few times, then faster for about 1 minute or so and turns red. No picture at all. And as far as re-setting the hour meter. I should have a video picture to do the re-set right? Thanks for any help!

    I had the exact same problem and had a repairman come out - It was the ballast that had to be replaced, for aroud $500.

Power on the set, listen for afaint buzzing sound as the set tries to fire up. If you do not here it then your lamp driver, or ballast is most likely faulty. Also make sure you have the door and all covers back in place and secure. And make sure you insatlled an orginal panasonic lamp because some generic will not work.

hi I just read that this tv needs a few minutes to warm up i am going to .try it. iam having same problem. i had a tv tech install a bulb and it worked .
but i had a dispute with the tech about the cost of the fix and he took out his bulb and all though i purchased a new housing with bulb in it so that i didn,t have to touch the bulb, when i put it in i got nothing but green to flashing red to yellow. so if my bulb is good and the tech didn't

Need to replace bulb in lcd panasonic


After lamp replacement, make sure that lamp cover is properly fixed on its location and if TV still does not turn On then it is ballast power supply issue, qualified TV tech will fix it.
If you think you can repair ballast supply and have enough knowledge about TV repair, let me know to provide you technical info about that.

How to reset the meter of lamp


You need to have your Panasonic remote.
1. Make sure the power cord is plugged into a properly grounded outlet and turn on the set with the power button on the projection unit or the remote control.

2. While holding down the (VOL -) key on the projection unit press the PIP or SPLIT key at the same time. Hold it for longer than 5 Seconds. The PIP or SPLIT key is model specific:

PIP for Models:
PT-50LC13/PT-60LC13/PT-50LCX63/
PT-60LCX63/PT-43LCX64/
PT-50LCX64/PT-60LCX64

SPLIT for Models:
PT-43LC14/PT-50LC14/PT-60LC14



3. When the unit resets the lamp timer it will display a screen on the TV indicating it was reset to zero. You press recall on the remote to exit.

Panasonic model# PT-50LC13


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.
