Panasonic PT-50LC13 Power Light Blinking Yellow

Hello,

When I power up my pt-50LC, the power button blinks green at first and then starts blinking a yellow/amber color, two quick blinks followed by a pause. The set does this until I disconnect the power. Anyone have a suggestion on what might be wrong? The bulb is still under warranty so I pulled out the bulb to send it in for a new one and it looks like brand new. Can the bulbs burn out and still look good?

Thanks.

    when i push the power button on it flashes green and then flashes yellow, it clicks as if it is trying to light the lamp after it does this a couplr times it the flashes red and then shuts off, but as it is flashing red, the lamp light turns red for a second. does this generally mean that the lamp is burned out? is anything else suppost to happen? like a fan turn on, or anything else?

    Thet v works for about 5 min. Then the picture go off and a yellow/amber starts to blink. If i pull out the power plug and wait for a few minutes the picture will come on again but only for a while. Shortly, iT will shut down and again I have to go through the whole cycle .

Yes very seldom do the lamps even look like they have been used, and unfortunately there is no way to test a lamp short of putting it in a known working set. Let me know if I can be of further assistance.

What does hdmi is blocked mean


Hello!
HDMI blocked could mean, that one or more HDMI inputs are turned off. In WD- series DLP TVs it's possible to disable one or more inputs, which are not to be in use, to speed up signal source switching. Most of modern sets are constantly monitoring inputs and automatically recognizing "plug"n"play" signals. blocking any input would not cause TV to shut down.
Yellow(amber) light means: lamp door interlock switch is off or malfunction. green blinking: set is initializing, about to begin normal operation. So: quite possible that lamp has been replaced incorrectly or door is not tight intermittently. Last possible issue: door's interlock switch is bad. Take lamp door off and you will find the switch with blue lever on the left side of the door inside plastic compartment. Push it with your "pinky" or pencil carefully, then ask someone to turn set on. Make sure, yellow light is off, before do so. If set starts normally, observe lamp's activity: it should stay on and getting brighter, while you holding switch. If lamp stops working, while there is no "amber" light, then TV shuts off, red blinks, lamp is bad. I just had to replace lamp twice, due to defective batch of lamps with housing. 3rd time I replaced bare bulb and it solved the problem. But there was no "amber" issue!
good luck,
Alex.

Power button blinks green about 1 minute then goes red


There is an additional problem,

if the bulb had been replaced by a technician, call them back and ask for additional support, since they did not fix the problem.

Power Button Blinking Red


Talli,
The number of blinks, called error codes, is crucial in determining what's wrong with your unit.. In this case the color wheel is faulty and needs to be replaced. In that unit the color wheel assembly is Panasonic p/n# TXFEN01RP4S and is available from many sources for about $390.00 plus shipping.
There are some companies like Tri-State-Module that have taken-up rebuilding color wheel assemblies but I can't be certain that this is one of the brand/models they support. If you can have it rebuilt you might save about half the price of a new one...
For your edification in the future here are the blink codes for your Tv:
1 | Load Shortage
2 | Over Volage
3 | Fan Sos
4 | Main 3.3v
5 | Lamp Disable
6 | Gc3fm-Iic
7 | Gc3fs-Iic
8 | Gc3i-Iic
9 | Color Wheel Stop

If I can help any other way just let me know...
Good Luck!
Bill
