Question about Panasonic PT-50LC14 50" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

On my pt-50lc14 hdtv my screen is stuck on this message, 5v eeprom), 3.3v (gc2), tv-factory mode

After replacing the lamp and cleaning out the filters and eye light lens and putting the tv back together. I turn on the set and the power light blinks yellow and the lamp and temp lights blink red simultaneously with the yellow power light about 8 times. After that the set turns on with a message that says Choose a language, (1) English (2) Spanish (3) Francias. When I try to select number (1) my remote blinks red and I'm unable to choose a numeral. After powering off with remote and back on I get a different message that says, 5v eeprom) 3.3v (gc2) tv-factory mode. This screen stays the same even if I repower off and back on. If I unplug and try again it is the same. What did I do wrong? What is the problem, How should I fix this? Is it worth fixing?

Have you tried any of the reset commands?
Try these....please let me know the result:

Method 1
1. Unit power must be ON and unit must be in STOP mode.
2. Press and hold [CH UP] and [CH DOWN] ON THE UNIT for over five seconds. The unit will turn off.
3. Press [DVD POWER] to turn the unit on.

Method 2
1. Press [STOP, TUNE MODE] on the main unit and [>10] on the remote control at the same time for about 3 seconds until the message "Initialized" disappears from the television screen.
2. Turn the unit off and on again.

Method 3
While the unit is off, press and hold [VOLUME +], [OPEN/CLOSE] and [POWER] on the main unit at the same time for more than 5 seconds.

Method 4
While the main unit is on, press [POWER] on the main unit for more than 4 sec. (All the indicators will blink twice when the main unit is reset.)

Another possibility is to unplug the power cord......wait 30 minutes and plug it back in, possibly repeating the steps above. (Method 1 should reset the unit but maybe trying each of them may be necessary until it is reset.

The message appears to be one that displays when the unit is in a setup mode.

Thank you for your reply.

    That probably is not the problem. Coming from the tuner PCB there is two pin connector that can plug into one of two locations. You probably plugged in into the wrong location.

OSD Message Panasonic PT-50LC14 Air Filter Needs Cleaning


I had the same problem and the stupid tv would shut off after 1 minute. We opened the silver front panel , took the bulb out cleaned it, took the cover off the grey box to the right and very carefully vaccumed the filter and wiped it off with a microfiber cloth. It works great now!!! Make sure you unplug your tv before messing with it.
