    O.K. I don't have a blue "action" button on my remote. The only blue button on my remote is a button that says "ok" this the button you are reffering to? Also, can anyone expand on the error codes for me. The tv kicks off and sometimes turns back on by itself. Other times it turns off and I need to unplug it to get it to reset. I get 6 red blinking lights sometimes, other times I get 8 red blinking lights...Should I just go to Best Buy and get a new one... I really liked this tv until the grief started.

This also worked on my Pt-52DL52 Panasonic also by pushing the Blue action button on the remote and the volume down button on the TV. But first wait until the replace bulb warning light is off, then do it.

To get rid of "replace lamp" push the blue action button on the remote and the volumn down on the tv set for a couple of seconds. this has to be done at the same time, good luck.

I have a Panasonic PT-50DL54 50" rear projection tv. My tv screen won't come on but the fans will. The power led light flashes green like normal but than starts to flash fast for about a minute than the...

Time to get a new TV. I have similar problem. In my case, the set turns off, LED blinking green for about a minute or 2, then the set will turn on by itself. Something the LED started to blink yellow after blinking green and then shuts off. I can turn it back on. This happens 3 or 4 times in an hour. After that, the TV stays on for as many hours as I want until I shut it off.
And then the problem repeats everytime I turn it on from a cold start.
I have my eyes on the 50 inch Plasma from Panasonic. Bestbuy has one for 999.99.

You should have received a message on the screen about replacing the lamp. Also, the LAMP led on the front should be lit in red.
You can replace the lamp assembly easily for about $150 - $250.
Don't try to replace the bulb only.
A new Panasonic Plasma TV will cost about $1000 and good for another 5 to 6 years.

The power will not turn on and the power LED is flashing red.

PT-50LD54 is an LCD rear projection TV with a consumable bulb that wears out normally after 2-5 years of use.

Most likely you need a bulb. That is first step in any troubleshooting for that tv. Check out Panasonic Gallery to identify lamp and replacement bulb.

Changing bulb involves removing the lamp assembly and replacing the bulb in the lamp assembly. Like doing a puzzle. Requires philips screwdriver, pliers and patience. Don't have jam on your fingers when you do it.

Picture goes away on my DLP TV

that is an overheating problem. With the TV unpluged clean and or vacuum the internal tubes. Not the lamp though. Do not touch the lamp as any oils on your hands will cause a hot spot and the expensive lamp will fail.

Panasonic pt 50dl45 shuts off buy itself

You probably have a lot of dust inside.
Open the back panel and vacuum.
Also use compressed air to blow into the components. Do not blow into the fan on the right as it will get the dust inside the lamp housing.
