Tv will not power up Panasonic PT-50LC14

Ok guy's i have the same tv and simular problems, first check the lamp light located next to the sd disk input (on the front). if it's not blinking then 2 things 1) more than likely it's the lamp if you haven't replaced it by now your one of the lucky ones, you can find them online for around $100, in which i paid over $300 for two differnt bulbs. the warrent only covers 1 bulb. 2) this happens to me once in a while try unplugging it let it set for a minute or two, replug it back in and try it again. but it depends if the light shines yellow (orange) and blinks twice, then try it again. you kinda have it cycle through and that should work. if not then unplug the unit, then take off the front cover and use a philips screwdriver remover the bulb (located behind the cover in the front) then i highly recomend doing this on a weekend pull out the shop vac and **** out the dust inside the lamp housing, then take off the back housing along with the left side speaker and first clean it out with a rag, then go through it with the shop vac. basically if dust builds up the unit will trap the heat and that it's why it will overheat and shut down.

Should I replace my lamp for my Panasonic 1080i htd t.v. pt-50LC14


Replacing a lamp won't work. There is not even one lamp in your TV. I'm afraid the lightening has done more damage than can be repaired. Even when some tech manages to repair te error, the TV can have the next error in days or weeks.

The Power Light is Red


yeah, should stay red when unit is turned off, indicating there's power but it's doing nothing.

Per user manual:
Solid red - power off (standby mode)
blinking red - power off (now cooling)
blinking green - power on (preparing to light lamp)
solid green - power on

unplug it, and let it set for a minute or 2, then try it again...if it does it again hit the power button again to turn it back on...also once the the tv turns on make sure you reset the counter for the bulb..that will also cause problems...to reset the counter press the (-) volume on the tv while holding down the (-) press spilt,pip on the reomte...the lamp will reset and the indicator will go out

Panasonic PT 50LC14 problem


You have to close the lamp door. It has a switch in it much like a clothes dryer door in that when it is open it wont operate.
