    My tv is mod # pt-51hx41e. 52 inch, purchased in 2002. I have the same problem.

    I turn on the tv, the red light stays on for approx 7 seconds, then powers off.

    Can i repair this myself, or is my tv finished?

    Please help.

    My Panasonic PT-51HX40 sounds like it is coming on for about 4 seconds, then won't. I was watching it when it suddenly quit, something obviously overheated, but I can't identify what it is.

I have a pt50lc13 panasonic that would not turn on. I bought the ballast repair kit and installed it and a new panasonic bulb. The tv now turns on, but only for about 5 seconds and then there is a click...

I'm not sure if this is the professional way:) -- but when my pansonic 1080i was acting up just like that - I placed a small fan at the back of the right side of the TV unit and faced it towards the TV air vents and voila the TV stays on and stays cooler. No more blinking lights. I don't think the cooling fan that draws the air out of the TV was working and the TV was overheating. Saved me some money in repairs and after a year it is still working well. A quick and cheap fix - but it worked. Jeanne

Tv wont turn on> is there a reset switch?

reset button can apply when the tv turns on. first the tv has a short circuit and has to be repaired in order to be able to reset the tv to the original settings created in the program as brightness, color etc.
your tv now needs a visit to the workshop first, to turn on.

It shuts off all by its self but not all the time

If I was working on this set I would look for cold solder joints on IC501 Vertical output IC.

Panasonic pt-47x57 power does not stay on

You could have a voltage regulator problem with bad capacitors or a defective solder connection in the deflection circuits. A service call is needed to find out what is the cause.
