Question about Panasonic PT-50LC13 50" Rear Projection HDTV
This is a model which was part of a rather large class action lawsuit a few years ago. Most were if original owner exchanged for a new model.
Many had problems where the lamp would repeatedly fail. I know as the shop I work for was involved in the exchange program and we would pick up the old set (problem or not) and deliver a newer model to the customer.
We did Panasonic authorized repairs and they did want the old sets back but told us to take anything out of them we wanted as they were just going to scrap whatever got returned to them.
The most common failure in these sets was the Ballast which is really the power supply that fires the lamp up went bad. At one point in time they completely ran out of replacements and had a "kit" where the supply had to be removed and several parts in it replaced out of hand.
I did this several times in people's homes. A newer replacement Ballast eventually arrived but it is pricey and not a do it your self job to get at, remove and replace.
For your information my recent research shows:
Manufacturer Panasonic Part Number LSEB3087A Description PC BOARD List $160.25 Your price $127.38 Core charge $250.00The board in a metal box is sold on exchange basis as they really do not want to have to continue producing parts for this model.
Some of the sets we picked up actually worked fine but by then the word was out.
Let me know if you have questions or need advice as I am here to help you.
