Question about Panasonic PT-50LC13 50" Rear Projection HDTV

Finding a decent priced ORIGINAL Panasonic PT-50LC13 bulb

My lamp is getting ready to go out, it's flashing red! I went to Best Buy & they want $284.15 for it. If anyone knows of anywhere where I can find a cheaper priced bulb, I would be most grateful.

My panasonic pt-50lc14 turns off the power light flashes red and temperature light flashes.

Examine the lamp first and be aware the model 50lc13 and 50lc14 which are almost identical had all sorts of problems----the lc13 was part of a massive recall/exchange that cost Panasonic tens of millions of dollars.

could be lamp or even the ballast which was the real issue involved in the recall.

Panasonic pt 50lc13 Ballast update done Bulb blew out just replaced and now the amber ( yellow flashes twice ) every 5 seconds how can i check the door lamp switch? is it just an open closed switch? thanks...

The door switch is in the front. The switch is triggered when you put the lamp door cover back on. It is a switch thats spring loaded so when you put the lamp door back on it automatically presses the switch.
If you have any other questions please feel free to ask.

Lamp light flashes on Panasonic PT-52LCX66


You should change the lamp. I have a tip at which explains the process and where to get the parts at the best price. Your panasonic may or may not need the lamp timer reset. Your manual should explain the process.

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.

What aftermarket lamps work and what ones don't

I just bought the bulb and housing from a seller on ebay. Its an OEM part that comes with a one year warranty. That is why I made the desicion to buy it for $118. You can buy remanufactured parts for a few dollars less, but if you can get an original part why buy a recyled part.

I read on a different problem how the philips bulbs are better bulbs than the original bulbs. If you go that rought it will cost you about $149, just for the bulb and you will have to remove it from the housing. There are instructions on utube on how to do this. I went with the OEM part because of the price.

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.

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.
