When you trun on my panasonic PT-61LCX65 tv it makes no sounds the light blinks green. and then red and turns off. what is wrong. i have looked at the buble and it looks fine.


does the TV bring out sound even as the screen display is dark?

How long have you been using this TV and have you ever changed the lamp/bulb? Problem should be from the TV lamp/bulb.
Have the lamp replaced and hopefully, your screen should be perfect as before.

Let me know if you need directions in replacing the lamp, even though it is very simple replace.

Yours sincerely.

I have a panasonic projection TV, PT-60C13 that will not turn on. Upon pressing the power on button, the button flashes green many times, then flashes red five time then one orange flash. This red/orange...


The most common cause of Panasonic Rear Projection LCD TVs not starting is bulb failure. The PT-60LC13 users manual gives some help in translating the LEDs on the front of the TV.

If the TV worked normally for a period of time (months or years) and won't start, the most likely cause is bulb failure. There is no way to measure the bulb, sometimes the bulb is visibly damaged when it fails. Remove the Lamp Assembly and look at the bulb.

If there was an On-Screen Lamp Replace warning and TV won't start, bulb has failed.

The first step with all Panasonic Rear Projection TV "No Picture" problems is bulb replacement. If that does not remedy the problem, get a technician, there are no user serviceable parts. Guessing if the ballast, power supply, controller board or optical engine is faulty is not practical.

The Panasonic Lamp Gallery shows all Panasonic models and Lamp Numbers. There is also a link to Panasonic DIY bulb and lamp replacement.

Panasonic PT50LC14 Power issue

We have a PT-50LC14. We replaced the lamp 6 months ago with a TY-LA1000 bulb we bought from a company online (not directly from Panasonic) and it worked for 6 months. Then the TV started turning off on it's own...sometimes it would not come back on for an hour or so. We called the lamp company and we luckily had 1 day left on our 6 month warranty!! They sent us a replacement bulb and the TV would never power on. It would try to power up, but the bulb would never ignite. The power light would flash and then the lamp light would flash every 5 seconds. I had a friend that has the same type of TV and she ordered her bulb directly from Panasonic. I borrowed her lamp and it powered right up. We then called the online company and they sent us yet another replacement bulb, and I tried it today and it works. It seems like these TVs are very particular about the type of bulb used. Next time, we will be ordering ours directly from Panasonic and just paying the extra $100. We have been without our big screen for 2 very long months! I had called a local tv repair shop, called Panasonic directly, and read through countless internet forums, and I thought we were going to have to replace the ballast or get a ballast repair kit and start messing with the circuit board.

TV won't turn on - just replaced lamp

I had this same problem. This (panasonic) set is sensitive to the type of bulb used. Don't use a remanufactured one, get a philips/osram or an OEM. If that is what you have, move on to the ballast. Replacing the ballast isn't easy, if you are electronically inclined, you can remove the back panel and the page size aluminum brace, it has two large square cut outs. The shiny silver box under that brace ( maybe 10" x 4") is the ballast. That is typically the next thing that goes out. The bad news is the cheapest I have ever been able to find a replacement was around $350. But again, if you have soldering skills, order a ballast repair kit from ebay ($30) and go to work. If you decide to do that, let me know and I'll email you photos and walk you through it. Once the ballast has been repaired, if it still has the problem, The power supply is bad. At that point take the bulb back out and sell it on ebay or send it back and use a LFH (large F****** hammer) and take out your aggression. Its not worth fixing. The powersupply board is more than the TV is worth. Most of the time this problem is fixed with the ballast. But its a CHORE to get to it and remove it to work on it. I'd be happy to help and I can send vids and pictures, depending on what you'd like to do.
Good Luck.

Think this is worth fixing?

trust ME when i say setting convergence after doing repair takes alot of time to do /you can damage set if you do not have service codes and values/ you also must have the hand unit that comes with set in order to even get into convergence circuit, call your repair shops ask if they have a good blue tube for set and how much would it cost to repair?ARE you sure blue tube has been removed from set.?
