Question about Panasonic PT-43LC14 43" Rear Projection HDTV
My red light stayed on but the TV would not come on. Manual suggested to replace the lamp. Bought the lamp and now trying to install lamp, but appears to complicated. Is there a good source for dismantling the TV so you can install the lamp, such as a service manual?
Long screwdriver? maybe if you consider about 3" being long (explains why wifes upset). I have replaced the bulb only and the housing with bulb several times with this pos tv. The housing and bulb is one philips screw behind the front snap off panel (the big front piece that has the hdtv stamp in bottom right corner, just pull out it has push in plastic stubs) then remove the philips screw next to the big white warning label where there is a small half circle cutout around it in the label. then one screw on the big black piece of plastic with a fold down metal handle. Then just pull strait out, little snug but as long as you loosen the screw it should slide right out. to replace just slide in whole housing replacement and tighten the 2 screws back up. As for just replacing the bulb, I buy mine off ebay and they have all come with real ez instructions. I believe there is 2 screws holding the clip for the 2 wires coming off the housing, just take that out as the new one comes with wires. you just screw on the 2 wires to new bulb tighten down the wire clip and put it back together. The housing can be just pried open with a flat head screwdriver (think there was a couple tack welds) then after new bulbs in just bend back in as much as you can, it will clear in the tv and be fine so it doesnt need to be exact. Hope this helps and if anyone wants another one of these tv's you can have mine!

Huge thanks to whoever said the unit is replaced in the front, not the back. Ignore the instructions that come with the full replacement lamp unit. Just pull the front panel off and it takes 30 seconds to swap out!

Question about this model? I need to replace the bulb do I need to replace the housing. There are 2 seperate costs for bulbs out there. One cost for bulb alone and one cost for bulb and housing... Sugggestions?

Seems it all went fine for me. Just make sure you have a nice LONG phillips head screwdriver. Only problem I'm having is the bulb timer won't reset. Pictures working fine though

Yes there is a service manual, but it is not complicated all you have to do is reverse order, you have to attempt this so you will be able to fix this yourself, dont think it is complicated, just go for it, it is easier than you think
