Question about Panasonic PT-40LC12 40" Rear Projection HDTV
I have a 2002 model PT-40LC12 Panasonic projection LCD set. The other night, I stopped getting a picture, I thought the lamp was burned out, but then the next night it came back on, although the picture was dimmer. Then last night, again, nothing. I've already gone through one lamp, the first one lasted about 3.5 years. But I don't think it's the lamp.
I talked with Panasonic tech support and the person said my Ballast control is probably shot or going. He indicated that the first gen HDTV sets only last about 5 years anyways and suggested I replace it. I'm not going to do that just yet- If it is the Ballast control, can it be fixed? Is it worth it?
Sent me the serial number, and I can check for any re-call ...
