Error display in middle of screen says " Air filter cleaning recomended at this time". I have been all over this set and can't find an Air filter so I changed the bulb because there has been so much decussion on how bad they are, but that didn't fix the problem. Is there a way to reset this error code? What do you think is the problem?

Re: Panasonic PT-44LCX65 Projection TV
There is a filter in the front of the machine, right beside the lamp door theres another one. blow that out with can air will kill the error for a while then you might needs to get it serviced because one of the fans is caked with dirt and if you dont know electronics i would not try to take it apart to clean it.

Howdy, The problem is with the EEPROM in the TV that needs to be reprogrammed. But you need to have the proper Correction Tool (LSUQ0100). I don't think it's available to the public. Call a Service Company, but make sure they have the “Correction Tool”. Thanks for using FIXYA, big IRISH.
For the Air Filter message, the filters are located inside the unit, if already cleaned, perform a reset of the unit, Press Hold, VOL - on set and TV/Video on remote for about 5 sec. If a Lamp timer reset message, try VOL - on the set and Mute, Move or PIP on the remote (try all three)
The problem is the computer in the TV is set to hold data for 2500 "On/Offs" Once you turn the TV on and off 2500 times, the dots start to appear as the computer cannot store anymore date. Call Panasonic, they will send a tech to your house for free and reset the computer and update it at the same time from 2500 to 1 million on/offs so it wont happen again. It takes maybe 10 mins to complete.
heres what you do remove front panel "little black door below the screen" get some software cleaner "air" clean all in that box that you just removed the cover from also you might try cue tips and alcohol let dry thoroughly put cover back on and turn on tv it should work if the message comes on again turn the power on and off about 6-10 times and turn back on it should turn on and be fine .if that happens again just open the cover and blow with sopftware clean.sound wierd but after alot of experimenting i fixed my tv that i bought as a salvage because of that error message bhope it works
The fix for the air filter problem also you are probably getting the on screen message clogged filter also. It can be repaired by relacing the light engine (VERY EXPENSIVE) or remove the light engine and clean the filter much less cost infact none if you know how.
To clean the filter you must remove light engine and you will see at the top a black housing with two screws that must be removed to remove light engine.
A service maual on how to remove light engine is very helpful wich can be ordered on the internet. Any way you want to remove 4 screws from the housing you will then see the filter and 4 more screws to remove in all four corners, remove the screws and then pry the rectangular filter out of the assembly. This may take some effert so be careful. Look at filter through light it will probably be dirty wash with water and blow it out with comprssed air look at it through to insure it is clean then reinstall .Reassemble and you should be good to go.
I had the same problem and the stupid tv would shut off after 1 minute. We opened the silver front panel , took the bulb out cleaned it, took the cover off the grey box to the right and very carefully vaccumed the filter and wiped it off with a microfiber cloth. It works great now!!! Make sure you unplug your tv before messing with it.
