How to clean the filter

    Yea, I am having a problem finding the air filter. Some say they clean it often, but I can't find it. Last night watching tv and heard a bop and the tv went off. Did some research and thought it sounded like the lamp and ordered one from ebay. Now, today I have read many more things and don't know if that is the problem or not. Will know when I replace the lamp. However, when I took the lamp housing out today, the lamp was shattered inside. So, ?? Read it could be the power supply?? So, please anyone, can you help me out? I need to know how to get the filter out to clean??

I have been told by a certified panasonic serviceman that the filters are inside the light engine on the back side of the the tv....you can only enter thru the back to get to the light engine. Apparently there are several filters inside the light engine assembly. I was told the cost is around $250 to come out and clean the filters. I have completely torn out the back assembly of my projection tv but have not gone as far as to take out the light engine. That will be my new task, as soon as i find a cheap or free service manual on the PT-50lcx64 projection tv i have.

Reset air filter


Page 58 of the user manual says that after cleaning the filter when the power is turned on, you will be given the opportunity to reply "Yes" to the question "Did you clean the filter". I suggest you go through the motions of cleaning the filter again, removing the necessary parts. Then replace the parts, turn the power on, and watch carefully for the message "Did you clean the filter".

Clean filter message reset


the filter will need to be cleaned and if the set still shuts down then I would suspect the fan may need to be cleaned and possibly replaced.

Where is the air filter


No one seems to know what they are talking about when it comes to this issue. I had the same problem for a couple of months. I looked up and down the internet for answers and manuals and came out empty handed. I didnt want to pay a repair guy so i decided to take on this filter problem myself. The OSD should say Projector Fan Filter Unit Needs Cleaning. The fan filter unit they are talking about is on the projector itself. That means you have to remove the back panel. I placed the tv on a blanket screen side down. Revome the board inside the stainless case and remove the projector unit. You have to unplug a few cables...thin gauge wires so be careful. Underneith and on the side of the projector are two foam filters. I vacuumed the heck out of them and its been working fine. You could try getting away with removing the front panel to the right of the lamp. you will see the small foam filter to the left of the projector but there is another one under the projector. Try vacuuming the best you can. My tv was pretty dusty inside so I'm glad to dug in a little deeper.

OSD Message Panasonic PT-50LC14 Air Filter Needs Cleaning


I had the same problem and the stupid tv would shut off after 1 minute. We opened the silver front panel , took the bulb out cleaned it, took the cover off the grey box to the right and very carefully vaccumed the filter and wiped it off with a microfiber cloth. It works great now!!! Make sure you unplug your tv before messing with it.

Unplug the unit! Pull off the access silver panel from the front of the tv. there are 2 sma ll access panels on the front behind the silver panel. The one on the left, allows you to change the bulb, one screw to remove, Just to the right of it there is a second one. This has 2 small screws to remove to access the opening. Once you take this small cover off, you will see the fan compartment. On the top of it on the left side is one small filter, mine was pretty clean. The bear is the one on the bottom, that you can only see the edges, but there is a small opening on the bottom. It looks like it is suspended in mid air. Take a cue tip and clean the underside! I slightly wet my cue tip and it worked fine. I tried to remove the fan compartment, but it would not come out and I did not want to force and break it. Remember to unplug the unit first. After I used the cuetip on the filter, I have a small vacuum and cleaned everything carefully. I had heard to leave it unplugged for about two hours to let it clear after I reassembled the covers. I turned on the set and the message was gone and has never come back. I did not have to reset anythi.ng and worked for me. That was it for mine and it is working fine

Tepreture light comes on and OSD advising to clean air filter


if you take off the front panel to access the lamp for replacement. there should be the air filter near by that you can remove. Carefully clean it by blowing through it but use no liquids. If it is too clogged then filter replacement is probably needed. I think you have to get the filter with the new lamp otherwise.
