Re: Turns off

This may be the cause of an overcurrent issue caused by a component going bad in the power supply or horizontal section of the tv. I would not advise you fixing this yourself. This advise is due to the hazardous voltages that can be present during the repair process. I would strongly advise taking the set to a repair shop or having someone qualified come to your home to do the work.

I have a Panasonic PT-50DL54 50" rear projection tv. My tv screen won't come on but the fans will. The power led light flashes green like normal but than starts to flash fast for about a minute than the...

Time to get a new TV. I have similar problem. In my case, the set turns off, LED blinking green for about a minute or 2, then the set will turn on by itself. Something the LED started to blink yellow after blinking green and then shuts off. I can turn it back on. This happens 3 or 4 times in an hour. After that, the TV stays on for as many hours as I want until I shut it off.
And then the problem repeats everytime I turn it on from a cold start.
I have my eyes on the 50 inch Plasma from Panasonic. Bestbuy has one for 999.99.

Tv turns self off when turned on

Does it blink a certain amount of blinks pause a second or just blink constantly with no pauses? Let me know it will blink a code if its going into protected shutdown. And it will blink constantly for another reason.
