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!

    Our TV is an HD RearProjection Tv. We have had it for four years. You would turn it on and it would come on for a few minutes and then click off or would have problems starting all together... Then one day it would start and no picture and the bulb light on our TV would come on... Do I need to replace a bulb and if so where do I find it and how much is it?

My Panasonic LED TV picture goes away after a few minutes

Could be a bad connection that disconnects when heat in the system causes it to expand. Take to a pro or call manufacturer, they might have a recall or free repair available.

How to reset tv

hi Tracie,
is the set making a clicking noise?
is the power light flashing on the front?
or no power light at all just dead?
if the set is just dead, just put your ear to the back vents can you hear like a very faint screaming noise and can you smell and burning in the vent?
if so it just could be capacitors on the power board.
if its clicking the that will need a service kit on the power supply board.
if the power led is flashing then you will need to count how many flashers from start to finish when you first turn set on.
hope this helps.

Panasonic TC-P42X1 acts like it is turning on, the screen turns black, then the tv shuts itself off and back on again.

Rule out any loose contacts in power outlet, RC Jack, cables and connectors. The problem described by you calls for opening the back cover and further investigation, which should only be done by a qualified service technician.

Is totally dead. First, I received blinking led, but right now, nothing. Si habla espanol, mucho mejor para mi, si no, puedo conitnuar en ingles.

Hi Eduardo,

First of all, thank you for contacting regarding on your TV problem.

I'm assuming here that your TV's model no. is TCP50S2. Most of the blinking LED on Panasonic TV's has a corresponding error code let say the led blinks 5 times(won't turn on), it is a 5 Volts malfunction either on the P board (power supply board) or on A board. Some of the blinking led error code are related to faulty electrolytic capacitor on the power supply board. It will dropped the normal working voltage of the power supply and will disable the unit. Faulty capacitor most of the time has a physical indication of fault like bulged/dome at the top and can be easily identify through visual inspection. Watch the video below for more info.

In your case, you've mentioned that the TV is totally dead set now, this is an indication of fault either on the P board or on A board but most cases I've encountered a faulty P board (power supply). I've suspected that your P board gone to multiple parts malfunction aside from the capacitor.

If you are going to DIY, I would advice you to check the output of the P board using a multimeter to confirm its condition. Once it has a missing voltage, replaced the entire board. Click it HERE for the P board's replacement.

Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!

Ratings and feedback are highly appreciated!

Kind Regards,

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.
