Question about Panasonic PT-50LC13 50" Rear Projection HDTV
TV DOES NOT TURN ON.
GREEN LIGHT ON BUTTON IS BLINKING FOR EVER OR TURNS RED.
It very well could be the ballast. I unfortunately have this tv and keep extra bulbs because they go out about once a year. Last time when I replaced the bulb the tv blinked and the red lamp light flashed like it does when the bulb is bad. Ballast repair kit fixed it up. This is certainly a design issue but you'll get no help from Panasonic. If tv comes on the goes out after a while, clean the fan filter.

When this happen on my tv, it means that the HID bulb is blown. If you get a new one, make sure to get the OEM bulb from Panasonic. Other bulbs I've tried omit a strong burning smell that does not go away over time.

Your service manual on page 82 steps you through decoding the blinking
1) there are two lights on the front near the reciever of the remote signals (Temp indicator and Lamp Indicator)
2) If the Temp indicator is on then they recommend you contact a service center
3) If the Lamp indicator is on and the power light stays on (no blinking) then you need to replace the lamp. Otherwise it says to contact the service center.
4) Counting blinks with the lamp indicator (1 every 5sec - lamp will not light or is abnormal, 2 every 5sec - lamp voltage is abnormal, 3 every 5sec - lamp temp is too high, 4 every 5sec - other error)
