Question about Panasonic PT-61LCX65 61" Rear Projection HDTV
I can not find the air filter on my tv, what do I need to do to take care of this error message. TV shuts off 1 min after error msg appears. thanks
Remove all the screws from the lower panel the ones with the arrows , after all the screws are removed the lower panel should come out , in the very center of the tv inside you will see some wires in front of a black plastic cover about 6" X 3" .carefully move the wires out of the way by moving them down . after the wires are moved get a phillips screw driver with a magnetic tip memove the screws from black cover be very carefull not to drop the screws into the tv . after the screws are removed carefully pull the black cover off . under the cover youll see the "AIR FILTER" carfully pry the filter out i used a butter knife .
take out the filter and blow it out using light air pressure. the filter may look clean but its not ,check it by putting a flashlight on the filter and looking through it before and after . to reinsstall just reverse the process.. before i discovered this i called panasonic directly they stated i had to take it to a authorized service center, i called a center and they said $350.00 for a house call and 250.00 if i brought it to them .
good luck i hope i saved you some money !

Open the back. There is a center piece in middle. Pull this out and there are two metal filters on either side. pull out filters and wipe with clean cloth. Put everything back and thats it.

Hi there. You won't see any obvious air filters like the old sets....
Fan 1 is used for air filter detection. Fan 1 plug P2902 at the right side of the light engine board may not be making good contact or simply isn't running. The feedback sensor built into the fan tells the micro what's up with the cooling system. If the fan isn't happy, neither is the set.
This needs to be checked by a qualified repairman, since if there actually is a clogged filter (very rare), some significant disassembly is required...
Good luck, Mark
