Question about Panasonic PT-45LC12 45" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
We turn it on and the green on and off light just blinks on and off but the tv does not come on we hear the fan but no picture, we had moved it to another location when this started. the lamp looks good and is not too old. what do you think could cause this? how do I tell if the lamp has gone bad or could it be another problem.
I had the same problem. I fixed it replacing the thermal fuse. You can get the thermal fuse from Radio shack. Hope this helps.

Good Day, teagues;
It sounds like a bad lamp. Lamps normally have a 5,000-hour life. Looking at the lamp can tell you if it’s bad if it looks burnt, but not always. Your Panasonic TV is also known for having failure of the ballast, which turns the lamp on. 95% of the time it’s the lamp, trouble shooting the ballast is a little more challenging.
The lamp replacement is a very simple process; instructions are in the TV’s owner’s manual. Call the factory, they will send you the lamp to your home with complete detailed instructions.
Good Luck, Big Irish.
