Question about Panasonic PT-45LC12 45" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Loud pop Last night the tv made a loud popping noise, like a light bulb burning off excep much louder. The TV stopped working, no picture, no sound. This morning I turned it on, the green light comes on, the fans come on and but still no picture and no sound. There is a bit of noise that it had never made before. The filter was quite plugged up. Can this be repaired? What do you folks recommend

Re: Loud pop

Check the lamp.
Pull it out and look at it.
More than likely the lamp has shattered inside the set and needs replaced.
Bulb replacement is made for consumers and can easily be replaced.
Need any more information, respond to this post and I will reply.

I have a 60" Sony

It seems lamp/ bulb popped again, check lamp inside tv.
If tv does not show red blinking light then it would be lamp that knocked off, replace lamp in tv to fix its problem, please buy Sony original lamp for good picture in tv.
Let me know if you have additional question.

Sony grand wega kf-50we610 red lamp light blinking

The red light means that the prjection bulb needs to be replaced. They ony last about two years depending on hours of use. The low popping sounds as well as fan noise is normal for the Sony projection TV. You can Google the owners manual by entering the brand,model etc. and ask for the owner's manual. I had to go to several sites but eventually found it.

Tv went out after loud pop and has clicking noise does not turn on

If you have a Sony DLP, then the loud pop you heard is your lamp.  The lamps last approx. 4K-6K viewing hours.  Read your manual for replacement part number to reorder and very simple to replace yourself.

No picture, hear sound, television will shut off after a few seconds.

Lamp life is only a few thousand hours. Hopefully its only the lamp that made to noise. Don't turn on again until lamp is replaced.
