I have a Panasonic pt-56dlx75 television that has

I have a Panasonic pt-56dlx75 television that has just began shutting down after a couple of hours use and then begins flashing a orange indicator 6 times in a repeated cycle. The owners manual simple calls it a "Malfunction 6" but does not elude to what that entails. Anyone know what this malfunction 6 means, and/or knows how it can be corrected?

Temperature is a common reason why many Rear-projection TVs do not perform well when they get to hot. You may start to see your TV shutting down automatically when it overheats. Here are a couple of things you can do to prevent overheating. First make certain any TV ventilation ports are free and clear of debris and dust. Second make sure the TV has enough room for airflow. Third, the temperature in the room should be around 72 degrees. Due to the high degree of heat generated by a rear-projection TVs, it is not advisable to watch TV on a hot days when you don't run the air condition. This could cause damage to your TV.

  • Check the fan. Once the television is turned off, it is just normal for its fan to become louder. A projection TV actually depends on its lamp, which requires cooling so that it will not prematurely burn out. If the room where your TV is placed is very hot, the fan would also continue to run.
Replace projection lamp. To properly do this, make sure that the lamp's bulb has cooled down and the TV is unplugged. Carefully remove the cover of the lamp's compartment using your screwdriver (Phillips-head). Unscrew the sealed part of the lamp that can be found at the television's rear part. Take away the old lamp cartridge and then insert a new one. Seal the lamp with screws, replace its cover and then screw tightly.
iF THE Problem persist you have to fix it the power supply inside.
God bless you

SOURCE: Panasonic PT-50DL54J DLP TV Flashing Light

I had the same problems that most of you have been having, tv turning on and off, lights flashing in all different colors, having to unplug tv to reset and all of that good stuff. I noticed that most of the time this would happen once the tv would start to heat up, and I could hear the fan working a little harder. Well I am not an electrician but It was very simple to unscrew the lower bottom park of the tv, where the fan and most of the electronics sit, then I used an oxygen tank ( I work for a medical company ) to blow out all the dust in the tv, ( you can olso use the compressed air use for computer, but if grandma or grampa have some O2 laying around, it works really good, LOL. )and was very surpriced to see how dusty it was, then I removed the MAIN FAN ( you only need to remove three screws, however there's a box in fron of it, which you'll have to remove first in order to get to the fan ). this may sound a little complicated, but trust me it is not, once you have taken the fan off, clean it all the way around ( best to use a clean rag, the compressed air was not doing the job.
long story short, once I cleaned the fan and put it all back together. The TV still didn't work LOL, Just kidding, It has been working perfect for a little over a week.
If I can help in any other way, please e-mail me @ gsierra11@yahoo.com

hope this helps.

SOURCE: Panasonic PT-51HX41E Convergence Problem

Hello pzemenides,

I posted this in an eariler solution and there are numerous referencesto this type of problem on fixya.com, however it fits in this case, sohere it is:

This denotes a convergence problem. Believe it ornot it would be cheaper for you to replace the two convergenceamplifiers and the biasing resistors. You would not actually bereplacing the convergence board since these devices are usually locatedon the deflection board in most cases. However in answer to yourquestion, the boards are easily removed, depending on your level ofpatience (lots of cables to move around), I would also advise you toeither mark down all of the connection you will remove, or take picturesof the board and its connectors. If you choose to just replace theAmplifiers and the biasing resistors there is a lot of information onthis site on how to do so: This will get you started:

1) Unplug the TV and then get a schematic of the TV I use http://www.servicemanuals.net or http://www.manualsparadise.com
2) On the schematic locate the STK392-xxx series IC packs (or whatever Convergence ICs your set is using) (usually attached to a large heat sink)
3) determine if the STK392s are 110, 120 or 150.
4) if the STK392-xxx's are 110s replace with 110s (forget that upgrade stuff it is a hit or miss game that I don't believe you want to get into), if they are 120s replace with 120s and so on.
5)Nowto replace the STKs: remove the module from the TV and unsolder theoldSTKs along with the bias resistors, and replace them with the newones(be sure to apply heat sink paste to the STKs when attaching them to the heatsink)
6) make sure there are no short circuits form your soldering job.
7) Reinstall the module and then turn on the TV.
8) do manual adjustment and the auto-convergence test and then things should be back to normal.


I hope this helps

Ineed to reset the lamp timer on my panasonic pt-56dlx75-k tv I installed a new lamp


terryc43,

This should solve your problem.

1. Turn on the television.
2. Press the down button on the TV Display (not the remote)
3. While pressing the volume button, press the "split" or "PIP" button on the remote.

This should reset your lamp timer.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating!!

Takes to long for unit to come on, when pressing power on remote, green light comes on, but it takes over an hour for the picture to come on.


could be a lamp problem, turn the set off, watch the front led light next to LAMP, count how many flashes in sequence, eg. 2 flashes indicate lamp problem, 3 flashes internal overheat problem. if a orange light flashes next to POWER indicator you have a power malfunction.

After a few seconds the lamp light began to blink red, its a panasonic pt-lb10svu, show no pic at all has a new lamp


Hi, Replacing the lamp in a Sharp LCD projector requires the lamp indicator to be reset. When the lamp needs to be replaced, the indicator becomes red. Resetting the counter for the lamp hours to zero will also reset the indicator to green.
  • Attach the power cord to the projector and plug it into an electrical outlet.
  • Step 2Locate the buttons on the top of the projector and simultaneously hold down the "Enter", "Menu" and "down arrow" buttons, then press the "Standby/On" button.
  • Step 3Continue holding all four buttons depressed until the lamp indicator light begins flashing green.The counter is now reset. Zero hours will now be displayed on the screen.
