    i have a panasonic PT-51645CU. it also runs then shuts off. To get it to restart, i have to unplug it and re-plug it in. Sometimes it will shut off right away, sometimes after an hour. Could it be the bulb and is it user-replaceable?

    I have the same problem. There are no lights on after the shutdown. I also have to unplug and plug it back up to get it to come back on. I have also twice now replaced the convergence chips. I am not sure if the two problems are related or not.

    My Panasonic PT-47wx49e has developed the same problm. One TV tech said (after just looking at it not turn on) that it's the High voltage transformer & estimated $500.00 to repair.

    Is he right abouthte problem? Is he right with the estimate?

    Can anyone help?

don't know what the blinking lights mean on yours but if you contact
Slinteriors the guru who asked about that ... maybe he can help.

I don't have a solution; however, last night my panasonic projection PT-47WX53 just turned off. I tried to turn the power back on, at the TV, and the red LED blinked several times and would not turn back on. I then waited approx. 5 minutes and it turned on again only to see the set-up menu again. Does anyone have any insight into this.

Pt47wx49 panasonic rear projection tv has very dark tv scenes

Has this problem been getting progressively worse? I would suggest cleaning the CRT's inside the tv with lcd screen cleaner or something similar. Make sure the tv is unplugged, all you have to do is undo some screws on the back to gain access to the inside of the cabinet. Hopefully that's all it is. Your set has no lamp if it is a Panasonic Pt47wx49.

Shut it self down after 5 seconds.

TV's have a circuit that monitors the high voltage and shuts down the set if it senses something amiss.
On projection types, figure on just replacing the entire board that has the flyback transformer on it.
