The problem could be that the filter on the back of the TV needs to be cleaned. Remove the pop out door and clean the foam filter. Do not get it wet, just use the vaccum or blow the dirt out. There is a fan behind the filter, so any dust and pet dander is filtered before the air is sucked into your unit. I make it a habit to clean mine every 6 months. I'd do it more often if your house is in a dry dusty location.

My LED tv screen is dimmed on the right 1/3. After some use it eventually goes totally black?

Back - light problem. Check and replace damaged component/s at its back-light inverter board, or replace this board as card basis. If you wish to get some details; check the site linked here. Surf the site with patience. Pull up older posts. It will be best to replace the inverter board as card basis.
Some model sets; especially LED back-lighted types; the back-light inverter circuit will be part of the main power supply board [SMPS]. In such cases, the power supply board might need replacement.

I am not familiar with your model of TV, BUT.... the symptoms you describe suggest that the device is OVERHEATING INSIDE, and a safety function is shutting it down UNTIL it cools enough to eliminate the safety hazard.

IF that's the situation, the CAUSE WILL NOT correct itself, and requires the services of a QUALIFIED Television TECHNICIAN!!!!!

To continue to use the TV without correcting he overheating problem will eventually result in self-destruction of the TV, AND POSSIBLY A FIRE!!!!!

Get it properly repaired by a professional technician NOW!!!!!

TV goes off suddenly. Searching for connection.

'Searching for connection' sounds like it's looking for a network link. check your internet connection. If it's supposed to be watching cable or broadcast TV, check the setup menu.

TV loose power, then regain 20-30 times a minute

It's trying to speak to you... it wants you to repair it. It must be where the relay is that turns the tv on with the remote control. All aging electronics needs the electrolytic capacitors replaced. When they age they throw the voltage off and cause many other parts to blow up. Aging solder joints could be a factor too. look for parts that have been overheating. The circuit board may have parts desoldering themselves and or overheating the circuit traces.

I have a model number PT-50LCX64 Panasonic rear projection TV. After turning on the TV about 3 minutes will elapse and TV will automatically turn off by itself.

Probably the fan isn't working or is dirty and needs cleaning. The projector bulb is overheating and shutting down the TV. Clean or replace the fan.
