Question about Panasonic PT-50DL54 50" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
Thanks in advance for your help!
My (3) year old Panasonic PT-50DL54 is shutting down after about 5 minutes. The lamp light will either blink, or, I had the power button blink (5) times. (Thanks, Bill for the Blink Codes). I usually can "re-boot" the TV and I can get it back up and running. The picture quality is still great, so it does not look like the lamp has gone bad. Or has it?
By the way, this problem started happening a day after I hooked up my kids Wii (Game Console) to the RCA input on the back of the set. I had to slide the TV from the entertainment center to get access to the imputs, but it definitely was NOT "man handled"! First I thought the power cord was dislodge (NO), or perhaps the IR Emitters (Niles) and the Wii Blue Tooth remotes were "interfering" with the set. However, after powering off those (2) devices... I am still having problems.
Chances are the cooling fan for the lamp is bad, or the temp sensor for the lamp might be defective.
