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.

I have ordered a ty-la1000 lamp for my panasonic pt50lc14 tv. the manual gives no information as to how to rset the lamp timer. please advise


I noticed that the manual on the below website has more information and instructions than the one that came with the tv on how to replace the bulb and reset the lamp timer, etc. Easy to do but they told me two years ago I had to have it done by a technician which costed me $300.

How do I clean air filter on the Panasonic PT-50LCX64?


I feel bad for you having such problems with the vendor and the technician too.
The location of that filter could be a small window in the back cover itself. could be a plastic window to the left side of the unit and is only a piece of plastic poliuretane kind of black sponge about 5 by 3 inches size .
What im interested telling you about the shut down condition and is maybe even most important than where is the air filter (who is one of the more than ten posibilities why the tv goes to shut down.
Note:
if the air filter is totally obstructed i would give one of ten probabities of suspicious why the tv shuts down:
first because the tv's air duct is not really isolated. The fan can eat air by any side of the air filter base as i said if the filter is totally obstructing which is really extreme. besides maybe the other 2 fans could help to cool down the unit in that case scenario. In my experience Most time the air filter holds tons of dust but is not totally obstructing the air passing, and really some other problems are in the set.

This is the really critical to know: if any of those fans stopped or maybe any sensor is overheated or the lamp is coming to dead or who knows.. a diagnosis is needed for this symptom really common in DLP technology.

Air filter keep popping on screen and shut off after 1 minute.


I had the same problem with my Panasonic tv, just 3 days after a technician came out to fix "fuzzy spots" which were multi colored, but mostly green spots. I really thought that the technician was in some way responsible, but Panasonic insisted that there was no possible way he was. It was going to cost $240.00 for him to come out to clean the air filter, and both the technician and Panasonic insisted that I couldn't do it myself. I had decided to buy a new tv to cut my losses. My boyfriend talked me into trying to fix it, we are both sort of mechanically inclined, and it was going in the trash anyway.
We took the back and top off the tv. It took some looking, but we finally found the filter, just over the projector. We removed the cover, it has to be done from the back of the tv, it is black and held on by 4 small screws, be careful not to drop them into the tv, we dropped one, but it shook out. We vacuumed the filter really well, and vacuumed around everywhere. We put the tv back together, not expecting it to work, but thinking at least we tried. It works great. It has only been a few days, but it seems like the problem has been solved.
Good luck if you decide to try. I have decided not to put another penny into the tv.
