I have the same problem with my 50" panasonic PT-50LCX64 tv. I have a call into a technician to see if it is going to be a cost effective repair, I am very unhappy with their technical support. I also have removed the bace and cleaned everything back there and blew it out. Their techs. say it is an internal filter that has to be cleaned by a service center or dealer. They will not say where the filter is at so I can clean it myself.

A screen comes up and says time to clean air filter, Where is the air filter located?

I just experienced the exact same thing. The tv will shut off if it gets too hot, and a clogged air filter will make it too hot. My tv is still under warranty, but I watched the technician do it. He removed the front and back part of the tv. He got down to the bulb enclosure in the rear of the tv, which is where the filter is located. He used my dirt devil and a brush to clean out the filter and the whole general back of the exposed tv. The he put all the pieces back on the front and back of the tv. Hope that helps!

Tv turns off and said the air filter needs replaced. also the temp light is flashing. Please help Garrett

There is a mesh filter between the ouside air and the fan, it stops the insides of the TV getting full of dust -
Some sets you just unclip a cover and can clean the filter, others you have to take the whole case off to get to the filter - There is also maybe a "reset" button you need topress inside the set to tell it that the filter is now clean and it is safe to power up...
Leave feedback good or bad.

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.

Air Filter Cleaning

Call the factory for an authorized servicer near you, your TV guy doesn't understand Panasonic...

If the lamp thermal sensor is active, the fans just keep running because it thinks the thing is hot (to save an expensive part from exploding). It does not give any error message.

Fan 1 is used for air filter detection. (It's essentially the same run-sensor type fan used in their stereos.) Fan 1 plug P2902 at the right side of the light engine board may not be making good contact or the fan is not running. The micro must get the proper feedback signal from that fan to keep it happy.

Good luck, Mark
