Found that the thermistor/temp measuring device is suspect, no resistance across legs. There is a label there that says F701 see service manual
I went here for a tech manual for the Panasonic
then ordered
Manufacturer: Panasonic
Part Description: FUSE
Part Number: LSJA0411-1
it was mounted to the case that holds the lamp. had to remove the back panel, etc. Also think I had to splice in the fuse or something. was a while ago.

i purchased a NTE8115 from my electronics supplier, closest I could find.
Radio shack also has them.

remove the back cover and measure for continuity across the thermal fuse
above the lamp housing.
if open jump it wth a 5 amp fuse, be sure to close the safety switch with
the small blue lever then try to power on.
If comes on ok you will need to replace the entire ballast assembly to get
that fuse.
Panasonic does not have a part number for just the fuse on the PT40LC
It is possible to cut off the fuse and replace with another but dont solder

My blinkers are not blinking , i check the Relay, fuses , bulbs still nothing ..... Please help me fing the problem

Did you check the signal flasher or the light relay? If the green dash indicator arrow is coming on when you operate the level for the signal lights but doesn't flash , you have a bad flasher if the indicator does not light up you have a power supply problem.

I have a Sony Wega LCD Projection 60wf655. When I turn it on, the red light turned green and blinks green 6 or 8 or 10 times or indefinitely. No picture but after a minute of being on the screen glows...

This could be the "thermal fuse" which usualy is next to the light bulb. Part cost around $5.00. Please check your manual for directions depending on light and times blinking.

Blinkers wont turn on its not the bulbs or fuses 01 tahoe

Did you replace the hazard/flasher/blinker relays?- they are in the fuse block usually.

This is weird, but try this: Turn on your hazard lamps and turn your steering wheel all the way left and all the way right.
Then turn on your left blinker and hold the blinker on while you turn all the way left, then right. It will click and try to turn it off but keep it held down and turned on. Then do the right blinker the same way.
I have had this problem with every GM I've ever had, something about the detent-return and the blinker relays getting reset. I'm not sure why it works, but if your flasher relays are good and your fuses,bulbs and wires are good then this is probably what will fix ya. I've had this happen often enough that I always do this first. My GM vehicles were/are all 60s to 90s models- old school, but try this before you do anything else with it it's free and only takes about 15 seconds to do. Sometimes I have to do it more than once, but eventually the detents reset and they work. Viola!
Good luck and please rate this solution if it fixes ya!

Sony LCD projection TV - bulb problem

Hi! sweet123,

Please answer this question. Were the 4 bulbs visabley bad; say broken or did they have a milkey look, or broken wire inside? In other words did the bulbs you replaced look as good as a new unused bulb? Please reply.
