Power button flashes Orange every 5 seconds. I have to press the Power button 2,3 times in order for TV to start.

I have a Panasonic PT-50LC13..When I come home and turn the TV on..The power light Flashes GREEN as it supposed to, then after a couple of seconds in starts blinking ORANGE every 5 seconds. I have to press the Power button again 2, 3 times in order for power button to turn GREEN and TV to turn on. If TV has been working for couple of hours and I turn it OFF and then ON again it usually turns on without a problem. What is the problem? and can I fix it myself?? I'm a pretty handy guy. Thank you.. Please help

    I've chenged lamps on this TV twice in 7 years. Usually when the lamp is bad, LED(LAMP) flashes and TV does not work. This time it's different (Lamp) LED is not flashing or lit red. Can it be because of the filters, can i clean them myself?

I'd be looking at voltage ratings for the three fans and the the blower fan located under the projector itself. Check the air filters there are two but hard to get to the one under the projector lense. Id say toss and replace they have alot of issues that's why panasonic quit making tvs

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

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.

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.

You have to reset the lamp timer. Turn the power back on. While pressing the VOL button on the projection display, hold down the PIP button on the remote control simultaneously for more than 5 seconds. The screen should show something that says "LAMP TIME WAS RESET TO 0. The lamp indicator should go out.

Panason PT-50LC13 TV won't come on, light blinks green then red


Ballast failure is more that likley the problem. Is the lamp light blinking,...once every 5 seconds? Discontinued part and can only be purchased used or rebuilt. Rebuilt units are available, check Ebay. Have a service type person confirm problem before throwing good money after bad!

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.

Blank Screen - Panasonic PT-50LC13-K


Hey Ben, The TV is alerting you it is about time to change your light bulb, it will keep on doing this until the light bulb just dies.
Order your Bulb via On Line at any of the places, there are different prices, but average for the authentic one with the chasis included is @ 260.oo and only takes @ 5 days to get delivered. You can save up to 140.oo if you just order the pure light bulb, and go the extra mile changing it, I just explain someone how to about it, only takes you 30 mins. Good look, I hope I get help for my problem too.
