Question about Projection Televisions
I have a panasonic pt50lc14 that has a dark picture. I have the brightness turned all the way up and some other settings out of adjustment to compensate and the picture looks good in hd but when watching regular especially if the picture is stretched it looks terrible. While replacing the lamp I noticed that the piece that the lamp shines through (I'm assuming it seperates the colors) appears to have a layer of dust at the bottom and was wondering if this was causing my problem and if that piece can be removed to clean as it is sealed ?
my recomendation would be save your money, and spend it on a new tv. by the time you pay for it you could of bought yourself a new tv...even though it wouldn't be a 50" you'll be much happier in the long run.........

push and hold the PIP (same as play) button in the remote control
push and hold the menu button on the front panel of the tv.
Do both actions simultaneously. Of course you have to be close to the tv to do this: pointing with the remote at the sensor AND holding the menu button of the tv panel.
Do this for some seconds and the screen is going to tell you the timer was reset sucesfull and ask you to push exit in the remote control to finish

SOURCE: Panasonic PT50LC14 Power issue
We have a PT-50LC14. We replaced the lamp 6 months ago with a TY-LA1000 bulb we bought from a company online (not directly from Panasonic) and it worked for 6 months. Then the TV started turning off on it's own...sometimes it would not come back on for an hour or so. We called the lamp company and we luckily had 1 day left on our 6 month warranty!! They sent us a replacement bulb and the TV would never power on. It would try to power up, but the bulb would never ignite. The power light would flash and then the lamp light would flash every 5 seconds. I had a friend that has the same type of TV and she ordered her bulb directly from Panasonic. I borrowed her lamp and it powered right up. We then called the online company and they sent us yet another replacement bulb, and I tried it today and it works. It seems like these TVs are very particular about the type of bulb used. Next time, we will be ordering ours directly from Panasonic and just paying the extra $100. We have been without our big screen for 2 very long months! I had called a local tv repair shop, called Panasonic directly, and read through countless internet forums, and I thought we were going to have to replace the ballast or get a ballast repair kit and start messing with the circuit board.

Pull the front off and you'll see the lamp compartment. Loosen the one screw and the lamp door with come off and look inside. Loosen the 2 screws holding the lamp then remove.

Lamp is located under lower front cover as shown in below image, pull that lower front cover and you will see lamp cover tighten with screw.
Remove it and lamp is there.
