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 .
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...

I have the same problem with my 50" panasonic PT-50LCX64 tv. I have a call into a technician to see if it is going to be a cost effective repair, I am very unhappy with their technical support. I also have removed the bace and cleaned everything back there and blew it out. Their techs. say it is an internal filter that has to be cleaned by a service center or dealer. They will not say where the filter is at so I can clean it myself.
Yes you need to clean the AIR FILTER located in TV.
Please follow the steps below to clean it.
1. Turn the television off and unplug the AC cord. 2. Locate the dust filter on the left side panel of the TV. 3. Using a phillips screwdriver, remove the two screws that hold the dust filter cover in place. 4. Remove the filter cover, set it and the screws aside. 5. Carefully remove the filter from the TV. 6. Clean the filter material by dusting with a lint-free cloth. 7. If the filter is soiled, you can rinse it with water. Do not use detergents or soap on the filter. 8. Completely air dry the filter before placing it back into the TV. 9. Replace the filter cover and secure with the screws.
For showing location i have attached a image.
heres what you do remove front panel "little black door below the screen" get some software cleaner "air" clean all in that box that you just removed the cover from also you might try cue tips and alcohol let dry thoroughly put cover back on and turn on tv it should work if the message comes on again turn the power on and off about 6-10 times and turn back on it should turn on and be fine .if that happens again just open the cover and blow with sopftware clean.sound wierd but after alot of experimenting i fixed my tv that i bought as a salvage because of that error message bhope it works
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.
Call the factory for an authorized servicer near you, your TV guy doesn't understand Panasonic...
If the lamp thermal sensor is active, the fans just keep running because it thinks the thing is hot (to save an expensive part from exploding). It does not give any error message.
Fan 1 is used for air filter detection. (It's essentially the same run-sensor type fan used in their stereos.) Fan 1 plug P2902 at the right side of the light engine board may not be making good contact or the fan is not running. The micro must get the proper feedback signal from that fan to keep it happy.
Try making sure that your cable box is turned on (if you have one) then try the volume down button (on the tv) at the same time as the tv/video button (on the remote).
If that works please post back about how you got past the first menu that does not allow you to reset the air filter hours...
We have the same issue and we cannot get past that menu.
I don't think we have an air filter???
you must have a wd series mitsubishi..the lamp tempurature sensor has a manufacturing problem..mitsubishi has an updated one to take care of the problem..the sensor itself is not bad it is the way the wires are crimped in the plug,,the new one is soldered..the part number is 299P313010A,
