Question about Panasonic PT-50LCX63 50" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Just installed 4th bulb, last one lasted 1.5 years. After shutting off tv the power button will stay lit, when I go to turn tv on later the screen gets partial power then goes black again. Before this new bulb I would have to wait another 10 mins to be able to turn on successfully. It takes multiple times with time in between for it now, please tell me what to do, Thanks!!

    I installed new bulb 1 week ago today. Last night the tv refused to stay on, after probably a dozen tries over a few hours of turning on

    Yes, I replaced the bulb myself. Why exactly? So I should confirm the light bulb housing connection to the tv? Last night I pulled the back cover off the tv, I carefully

    The only thing my tv does now is run the fans which I can clearly see because I have the back cover off. Where

    Is there any way of checking the bulb? It obviously worked for about 6 day when it finally turned on and I pulled it out last night and it was still in one piece. That would be great if it was just the bulb. Anything I can do to check the bulb?

    It does not sound like the bulb. Go back and check the connections, (plugs) some times they will work for a while, but then, if they are not snaped in-place, they will begin to fail.

  • JOHN BABA Jan 04, 2011

    I failed to ask you! Did you replace that yourself, very important, as there is voltage present ?

  • JOHN BABA Jan 05, 2011

    The DM power board has some bad capacitors or leaking caps. Check for buldged up or puffy
    or swollen caps on the power board. Replace them only with the same rating as the bad ones.

    Also check that your fan is working

  • JOHN BABA Jan 05, 2011

    then if the bulb is not lite, you have a defective bulb. I would check on the warranty on it.

  • JOHN BABA Jan 05, 2011

    There are a few PICO fuses right next to the bulb housing. Check those, they are short, looks like a resistor. You will need a OHM meter to check. If they are good. Then you have a bad bulb

After a period of time, vertical lines appear on the screen. Looks like jail bars. Sometimes turning the TV off, then back on will clear it. All channels. I replaced the projection bulb about 6 months...

no solution, same sounding problem though. last year we were getting lines through the screen and flickering and then the bulb burned out. had it replaced, 2 months later it did it again (they wouldn't stand behind the bulb so we had to buy a whole new one) this time had the bulb and ballast replaced because the repair guy said usually you have to replace both (why didn't they replace them both in the first place?) .. a year later and it's doing it again.. we get the flickering of the screen going on and off and horizontal lines that flicker across it. after turning the TV off and on a few times it seems to go away (or after it warms up)

i know know if i should order another bulb and ballast and spend the money for it to happen again or if it could be something else

let me know if you find a solution..

I have a Rheem Criterion II Gas Furnace that has been acting up the last couple of days. It is model #RGPH-12EARJR. It will cycle on, ignite the pilot, 4 burners light and stay lit from 5-10 seconds then...

Turn off the power to furnace.
on the last burner to light there is a small metal rod in front of the burner. This is a safety called the flame sensor. It is dirty. Unscrew it from the bar ( 1 Screw) unplug the connector wire from it and clean it with steel wool. it will be kind of burnt. Plut back in place and turn on the furnace to cycle.

TV wont turn on, makes buzzing noise and shuts off

I have two RCA HD52W59 TV's. I have had one for 3 years and one 4 years. The one I have had for 4 years is giving me the problem. Last week the tv turned off while watching it. It wouldnt come right back on. 10 minutes later we tried and it worked fine. the other night the kids were watching and it turned off and smelled like something burning. I tried turning it right back on and got no power at all. I tried to turn it on two days later and it made a buzzing noise and the green light went out. Never did get a picture, no powering up on the screen. Any ideas? Don't want to spend alot of money. Really loved the TV hope it isnt junk now. Better yet I hope the same thing doesnt happen to the other one I have.

My HD50LPW62AYX2 RCA TV sometimes reverses the blue and reds. The peoples faces are blue, especially the lips.
Sometimes turning the TV off and then back on again fixes the problem. At other times this correction is good for only a second or two.
Do you have an English owner's manual available on line or otherwise available?
