Sound problems on PT 50LC13

The sound doesn't work on my PT-50LC13. I've had problems with the lamp before (like many others), but this is the first time the sound hasn't worked. I haven't found another post on this topic.

I replace lamp on PT 50LC13 50 and still no picture or sound...could it be the ballst

It is a common fault to this model that ist ballast may get damaged,. Just replace it. If you stll do not get the problem rectified, inform me. I've its service manual [not user manual] in which all repair work has been explained with illustrations. All adjustments should be done, disassembling and reaseembleing etc. Byt I can't send that document diret to you by this site, as this Fixya new site does not allow any PDF files to upload by it. You have to buy one amoung my services advertised in Fixya site. You can also come to me and purchase my service, bt typing my nick name "gopakumarg43" on Google search box, and clik on 'Gopakumarg43-fixya' there. You can access my services publshed there by Fixya, and can select the apprpriate. When you purchase it, Fixya will give alert, and one link between us, through which we can communicate each other till yourTVs problem has been rectified. OK.

TV shut off and cannot turn back on

If your tv is around 2-4 yrs or used 6000-8000 hrs,never replaced the lamp before it could be time to replace it.The other most common failure is the board that powers the lamp,which is called the ballast.When its bad it will make a clicking sound or like wanting to turn on.The part # for your lamp is TYLA1000 you can find it here: Good luck and God bless you!

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.

PT 50LC13. Sound but no picture

Unplug the set fro about a minute or two and see if that clears the error. If you are using a surround amp that yoir video sources pass through before it gets to the tv then make sure that is set to the right input and working properly and finally make sure the source providing the signal is working. If all is good then you have an issue on your main board where the video switching is processed.

Panny pt-50lc13 steady amber flashing light

Sounds like a defective lamp diever or ballast.Listen for a buzzing sound when you turn the set on. If you do not hear it then most likely you have a bad ballast or lamp driver. Worst case scenerio would be the engine itself.

It could be the ballast that is bad. A bad ballast also shortens the Lamp life .
