Question about Panasonic PT-43LC14 43" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Screen Brightness I recently replaced my lamp on my TV because I had a problem with the unit shutting off at random.The new bulb took care of that problem,but it seems that my picture is still not very bright.I've got it set to the max setting and in the vivid mode.It looks pretty decent in the evening and low light conditions but I think it should be brighter.Is this common for LCD projection TV's? or could there be other problems with it.I've looked at the regular LCD TV's and they seem much brighter than the projection units.

    I think it was Osram if I remember right.

    I am having the same problem right now. The picture has gotten darker and darker over the past month or so and I replaced the lamp (which had actually busted completely the day before my new lamp arrived and caused the TV to power off). I bought the Panasonic TY-LA1000 replacement lamp but not from Panasonic and the picture came back, but the picture is still dark!! Very frustrating. Any solutions out there?

What lamp did you replace it with? Some of the aftermarket bulb sources are not the original brand and do not work as well.

    Well, these models from panasonic are frought with trouble. See
    the complaints on this link and you'll get the idea.
    www.consumeraffairs.com/home_electronics/panasonic_lcd_tv.html

    Panasonic isn't the only one with lawsuits against them.

    I think the high voltage power supplies for the lamp is not well
    designed and can't control the bulb voltage causing to commonly blow up
    the bulb or in your case, be low and dim.

I heard a pop on the Toshiba rear projection TV (model #62hmx84) and immediately lost the picture


Sir the problem of your unit is the lamp try to replace it it is much better to use a gloves and wash your hand after replacing the lamp because this lamp contains mercury. follow this steps.
1. Unplug the unit to main ac outlet. Remove the bulb housing cover from the back of the TV. Using a screwdriver, carefully remove the cover to reveal the old bulb. Using a cloth, remove the bulb from the TV by first unplugging it from the wiring harness. Carefully rock the harness back and forth until it comes free from the bulb. Push in the bulb slightly and turn it a quarter-turn to remove it from the bulb housing.
2. Install the new bulb. Do not touch the new bulb with your fingers, as any grease or fingerprint from your hands will damage the tiny mirrors in the bulb. Instead, carefully handle the bulb using the cloth. Insert it into the bulb housing and secure the door. Test the unit. Plug in and turn on your Toshiba TV and make sure that the new bulb is installed properly and that the image looks crisp.

3.
Reset the lamp time counter. Each Toshiba TV comes with a lamp hour meter stored in its software. If you do not reset the lamp timer, the unit may stop operating when it gets to a certain time (refer to your manual because each Toshiba TV is slightly different). To reset your Toshiba lamp timer, turn off the TV, wait 10 seconds, hold down the "on," "menu" and "input" buttons on the remote at the same time, and turn the power back on. A yellow light should appear in the bottom corner of the TV indicating that the lamp timer has been reset.
Hope this help good day and best regards.

I found where that switch is, that gets pressed when you have the back cover to the bulb screwed in was hanging, and I can get the new bulb and my replacement bulb to work for about 15 secs, and at one point it was working really good. Can anyone help me with this problem, cause Im getting frustrated.

Please help if you can, id really appreciate it.

See Here:

as well as in your manual. Sometimes the lamp must be reseated
by removing it and reinstalling it with great care making certain
the door and all the gaps are closed tight.

If the lamp replacement or reinstallation does not solve the
problem you will likely need a service tech to look at the tv
as there are few user serviceable items for Plasma sets. Most
of the repairs are done by computer connection that downloads
the error messages and interprets what went wrong.

Hope this helps.

Samsung DLP TV shuts off


Hello All, I may have an inexpensive solution to your problem. I had the same problem with my TV as well. It would shutoff by itself about an hour after it was turned on. The when I would turn it on again it would shut off after 5 to 10 minutes. Finally I got fed up. I knew it was not my bulb because the picture still looks good. I did here a buzzing if I would turn the TV on right away after it would shut off. That was do to the bulb recharging itself. I noticed the TV was extremely hot in the back. So automatically I thought it was the cooling of the set. All post I read keep saying the TV would last about 2 years to a year after a service. Which would be right because (most) service repair clean out the units before installing new parts. What I did was I opened unplugged the TV from the wall and opened unscrewed the back panel door. I used my Air compresser and blew out all the dust inside. ( A can of compressed air should do the job if you do not have a compressor) I removed the bulb and blew out the dust on the bulb as well. I did not remove the bulb from the housing unit. After I dusted the bulb and housing unit I reinstalled it. I keep my home clean but you should have see all the dust that came out. The dust covering the components overheat the unit which causes it to shutdown. It has been about 2 weeks and have not experienced any problems since. All I can say is give this a try and maybe this will work for you. This will only cost you about 10 dollars and 30 minutes of your time. This is better that Hundreds of Dollar in repair.

Sony KDS-R50XBR1 shutting off


When the lamp becomes weak in this Sony the unit will shut off intermittently. I would replace the lamp and use only an OEM Sony lamp, not an LTI or other knock off. The knock off lamps are of poor quality in my experience and opinion.
