Question about Panasonic PT-50LC13 50" Rear Projection HDTV

Blank Screen - Panasonic PT-50LC13-K

Hello, I have a Panasonic PT-50LC13-K (rear projection) TV and it has some issues starting. When I plug the TV in and power up the TV, it shows a faint light in the background of the full screen and then some green lines and then it fades to a full black screen. During this time the sound of the channel is being played through the TV speakers. The power button shows a solid green light, but there is no display on the screen.

Once you turn it off and properly wait for the lamp to cool and the power button to become a solid red. I unplug the TV for 5 seconds and plug it back in and power on the TV, sometimes it will work and power up to the the proper display, other times it will just show a brief light on the screen, then the green lines and fade to black.

I am trying to find out if this is a known issues, or if the TV is worth fixing or not?

Thanks,

Ben

Hey Ben, The TV is alerting you it is about time to change your light bulb, it will keep on doing this until the light bulb just dies.
Order your Bulb via On Line at any of the places, there are different prices, but average for the authentic one with the chasis included is @ 260.oo and only takes @ 5 days to get delivered. You can save up to 140.oo if you just order the pure light bulb, and go the extra mile changing it, I just explain someone how to about it, only takes you 30 mins. Good look, I hope I get help for my problem too.

Is Worth Fixing Panasonic PT-50LC13-K Rear Projector TV


most likely a bad mainboard or bad caps in the power supply. Borderline on the repair-ability. I would check Shopjimmy.com to see if used parts are available. If they are it may be worth it.

Pt-50lc13 is it a HD tv?


It is a HD ready TV meaning that it may not have a HD tuner. If you have cable this should not be an issue but if you want to receive HD channels through the air, then you would need a HD tuner.

Need to replace bulb in lcd panasonic


After lamp replacement, make sure that lamp cover is properly fixed on its location and if TV still does not turn On then it is ballast power supply issue, qualified TV tech will fix it.
If you think you can repair ballast supply and have enough knowledge about TV repair, let me know to provide you technical info about that.
