Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. “Air filter cleaning” in your set is something that should not be done by a normal user as it requires to remove the light engine assembly. It can only be done by someone who has good knowledge of the internal circuitry of the TV and probably also owns a service/repair manual. If you still want to clean it then you can access the filter from the front of the unit then pull off the cover, remove the 4 screws in the center and remove the door. There are usually two sides to the filter out of which the top side should be vacuumed and the bottom side the dust should be blown. However, as I said it is not recommended to be tried at home. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

This is a sign that your TV needs servicing.

The proper way to clean the air filter is to remove the light engine assembly and access. This requires a qualified service tech or at the very least someone with some good electrical repair knowledge and a service manual. It is not recommended that this be tried at home.

That being said, I have heard that supposedly you can access the filter from the front of the unit but I have not tried this myself:

  1. Pull off the cover (it unsnaps).
  2. Remove the 4 screws in the center and remove the door (not the lamp door).
  3. There are two sides to the filter, vacuum the top side, and use canned air to blow out the bottom side.
That said for DIY-er benefit, I really can't recommend blowing dust around inside an HDTV, and really do recommend a service tech do this maintenance for you to avoid further trouble with your TV.

I hope that helps.

OSD Message Panasonic PT-50LC14 Air Filter Needs Cleaning


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.
