    Hello,



    I replaced the bulb in my PT-50LC in November but I can't get the TV to power on. The power light flashes green - slow at first and then faster. Eventually the power light turns to red and continues to flash until I disconnect the power. I pulled out the bulb and it looks like brand new. Anyone have this same problem?

    I replaced the bulb and the TV will still not turn on. Green light flashes and then the red light flashes for a period the turns solid red. Cannot seem to find a solution.

    Same here! Just recieved brand new bulb and replaced it carefully. Tryed to turn on the TV and the power light turns green and flashes slowly a few times, then faster for about 1 minute or so and turns red. No picture at all. And as far as re-setting the hour meter. I should have a video picture to do the re-set right? Thanks for any help!

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.

SOURCE: My Panasonic PT- 50LC13 doesn't turn on

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)

Panason PT-50LC13 TV won't come on, light blinks green then red


Ballast failure is more that likley the problem. Is the lamp light blinking,...once every 5 seconds? Discontinued part and can only be purchased used or rebuilt. Rebuilt units are available, check Ebay. Have a service type person confirm problem before throwing good money after bad!

Reset Time Problem on Panasonic TV (PT-50LC13)


Power on the set, listen for afaint buzzing sound as the set tries to fire up. If you do not here it then your lamp driver, or ballast is most likely faulty. Also make sure you have the door and all covers back in place and secure. And make sure you insatlled an orginal panasonic lamp because some generic will not work.
