I cant figure out where my lamp bulb for my panasonic model pt-56lcz70 is located so i can replace it

You have to remove the back panel of the TV - bottom portion. It is a total of 8-10 screws - just took mine apart 30 min ago. Once you do that the LIFI4000 unit is on the right side (looking at the rear of the TV). Next you must unscrew the whole electronics shelf which runs across the whole back of the TV. There are 3-5 screws on bottom and 2 above the electroics in middle of TV. Then the whole shelf will slide out. There are approx 6-8 wires you have to unplug to get the electronics out. Be careful not to mess them up. The power supply for the LIFI4000 is a separate unit and sits on top. This must be unscrewed first and then lifted off of the LIFI assembly. Not knowing how this assembly came apart i wasted alot of time unscrewing all the screws I could find to get the assmbly apart. Be careful not to lose any screws. The LIFI unit pulls out of the end of the rest of the electronics assembly.

Sorry that I have not gotten back sooner, have been out of town. Tried your solution worked for one day. Now what happens we have to turn off the power for 10 minutes then turn back on. Sometimes it works...

I'm sorry to tell you this, but I believe you will need to contact a repair shop. Is the TV still under warranty? Either way, contact Panasonic and select an authorized repair shop. 1-800-211-PANA

All the troubles I've seen with this model are because of the LIFI lamp. Panasonic warrants the lamp assembly for four years from date of purchase. Call Panasonic toll free hotline or go online for an authorized warranty shop. Good luck

I cannot locate the bulb in my Panasonic PT61LCX70-K

This model uses the LIFI lamp ***'y. It's not a customer servicable part so you'll have to call authorized Panasonic service center to change. However, the lamp does carry a 5 year warranty so do not fear. To answer your question, the lamp is on the right side of the unit as you look from the rear.
