I dout taht the bulb is bad, but more likely the backlights inverter circuits may have failed or it is not getting the voltage to it. You will have to open it up and check the voltages and fuse. lamps are not easily replaced.
Post he pictures if you can for further help.

    16" TV is not worth putting the money into it anyway. You may want to give it to someone that is taking electronics class to learn how to troubleshoot the problem so it will not be a total loss.

Can not get picture to flip


Read the setup manual more closely, the answer was very vague and a person has to pay close attention to the pictures. Found one picture that showed the menu with "flip" displayed on it.

Panasonic LiFi model number PT-50LCZ70. Have red lamp light flashing on front 2 times. Have tried to turn it on and get no picture and no sound at all. I checked and the fan is running. What now?


After the red 2 flashing starts, press the power button on the front of the TV and hold pressed down for ten seconds.
You will hear a faint click comming from the back of set.
After 10 sec release the button and wait 10 more seconds then press the start button and release right away.
The green light flashes and the bulb attempts to start.
I found my picture will turn on on the third attempt of the bulb restarting.

When you do this and the room is dark you can see the bulb attempt to restart, My bulb has restarted on the third restart every time.

(note: The three start attempt happen after I do the button pressing
1 time and I do not need further button pressing restarts.

I think panasonic needs to let us know what the problem is.

I called Panasonic and they told me to plug it into a wall plug by itself.

I have it plugged into a multi plug adaptor now and have not tried this yet.

There is sound but no picture and there is no response when using the control buttons on side of tv or the remote. I turn the tv on and change channels thru Comcast cable.


Talked to a Westinghouse tech and told to unplug for about 3-5 minutes, then re-plug. It's like having to re-boot your computer when it goes down or starts acting wacky. It worked, I got picture. Says it could happen again, maybe 1-2 times a year is o.k., if it starts to happen every few weeks, then it's something more.

Has sound,picture only comes on for a couple seconds at start up.


This is a Backlight Bulb or Inverter (power supply for backlight) failure.
If in warranty, take it to service
You can try to order an Inverter, or if needed you can get a replacement bulb (not easily available)

Panasonic PT-50L14 50 lamp has no obvious defect


My first step would be to check the owners manual under troubleshooting for the lamp code for blinks green then red. I suspect the problem is in either the ballast that drives the bulb, or the bulb (P/N TY-LA1000) itself - you can't usually tell a bad one from a good one by looking at it. The ballast is difficult to replace, and I would call in a repairman to fix it if a new bulb didn't do the trick.
