Re: Panasonic 52 projection tv lamp light ?

Sounds like the lamp failed early (not uncommon) and one of the fans has something rubbing on it. Clean the interior and fan filters and replace the bulb (for lamp #TY-LA2005) as follows:
Projection TV makers charge an arm and a leg for their replacement lamps. They make it easy to do but as a result the custom lamp assy is expensive. The trick is to just buy the bulb for your model TV from any number of us aftermarket sources at a fraction of the lamp price and install it in the old lamp yourself. really easy. Some models are real bulb hogs though. Look them up on the net (include the word complaint or repair) before you buy, or you might be sorry. Many class action lawsuits out there - even against some of the name brand makers.
Hope ya fix it!

The tv made poping sound & it lost the picture but the sound was ok, their is buzzing sound coming from inside the tv, after about a min. the set turn off & red light stays on. reset tv, same...

This model is prone to a lot of problems to the point where a year or so ago they offered a chassis replacement on an exchange basis.

I would with rear cover removed try to localize first where the sound or buzz is coming from: The ballast? the Light engine? The power supply?

I can help but as I said this model has a LOT of chronic problems.

When you turn the tv on it makes a buzzing sound 3 different times and remains black

Sounds like you just have a bad lamp. The buzzing sound would be the spark gap on the ballast trying to fire the lamp. Access door for the lamp is on the side in the rear. A few screws and pull it out, you'll prob find that the glass has broken inside. New lamp part# is TS-CL110U and around $170

My WD-52525 started a rubbing noise coming from the back area. I figure it's the light engine. Color was off and it won't restart, has a lamp light now. Lamp is 4 months old. Sound like light engine?

This sounds like your color wheel. this will affect the colors on your screen. Do check your lamp though, at 4 months you still should have a good lamp. Unless you have a bad ballast affecting the lamp as well. If you hear a rapid clicking or an electrical buzzing type noise. "ballast"

Turn on and red light comes on after two min. and it shuts off

on that model its possible for the lamp sockets from the ballast get pushed back inside the tv. Remove the bulb and verify that the sockets are firmly attached to the rear wall of the lamp compartment.

Screen is fine when I first turn on TV, then goes black

Sounds like you dlp lamp is going out. That's a pretty old TV and if you are still running on the stock lamp this is exactly the type of thing that will happen. The lamp model for this particular tv is the ty-la1001. You can find that over here:

Bad lamp?

If you have the owners manual look on page 64 and see what it says there about the light lighting up in the front of the unit. if you do not have the owners manual, you can get one for free here:
