Turn on power, but no picture, when you turn off power see picture for a few seconds before tv shuts off

When I turn on my Philips 50 inch tv the red power button lights up and it sounds like TV turns on, but there is no picture and no sound. When I turn the power off, you can see the picture for a few seconds before the tv turns off.

Please offer any assistance.

Turned itself off. I turned it back on and the green power light blinks for awhile then blinks red for picture or sound

Get rid of this TV. Had one and replaced the bulb and light engine many times. Just buy a Samsung or Vizio 50+ inch instead and be very happy. Those Panasonic projection TV's were terrible. You will find a 50 inch Vizio for around $500 bucks and it will blow your mind how great the picture looks.

Sounds like your lamp is bad. I think this is the set where you have to take the whole back off to replace the lamp. Once you take the back off, its on the left hand side.

it could have over heated you can try to reset it first unplug it for about five minutes and try to turn it on if that dont work the remote might have a set button try holding that down until the red light flashes twice, then turn it on if not then hold the power button down on the set for a good five seconds to see if that resets it. if none of that works you will have to go to panasonic .com for the reset instructions.with the red light blinking the power supply is most likely good you just need to reset i.
