Question about Panasonic PT-47WX49 47" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Power problem Our TV is dead. It would turn itself off after about 5 seconds of being turned on, and now it won't even turn on. I've called panasonic who gave me the name/number of a tv reapir shop but we've not taken it in yet. Anyone with a clue what could be wrong and/or how expensive this might be to fix? Thanks for your help in advance!

My panasonic projection tv 60'' has a power but auto shutoff after 5 seconds then blink red light 3 times

Dead power supply. I recommend a new tv rather than throw good money after this old thing. A new power supply will cost $200 or so plus installation. Sometimes dead power supplies take other components with them as the voltage surges.

When I power up, 5 seconds later this back projector TV turns itself off

t does sound like a bulb problem, either its over heating and shutting off to protect itself, or its already shot. Give a TV repair shop a call and see if they can give you an approximate price, then decide to ditch or repair it.
