Question about Panasonic PT-40LC12 40" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Won't turn on

Electricity was intermittently going on & off for a few seconds...after that, the tv went dead. when i turn it on, all i get is the blinking green on/off light. i figured it was the lamp, since i replaced it once before. I took out the lamp & noticed the end of it had a crack in it. so, i bought a new lamp, installed it, and i still have the same problem. tv won't turn on...all i get is the blinking green on/off light.

I bought the tv in 2002.

    I am having the same problem with my Panasonic PT-40LC12 due to a short power outage. It was working before the power outage and now when I turn it on all I get is a blinking green light on the power button. I haven't taken it to a repair shop yet because I am hoping for a cheaper solution. Any help?

    i got the same problem. i turned it off one night and the next morning all it didnt work. the green light blinks but the tv doesnt turn on. i noticed that when the light is blinking green i hear a slight clicking sound close to where the light bulb is located. I also changed the bulb about 1 month ago so i really dont think its the bulb.

    Ditto. I'm hoping it's just a fuse, but might be a MUCH more expensive ballast problem.

Better to call the manufacturer so they can test it and check for problems. If still within warranty they will replace it, I guess.

Why won't my TV turn back on even manually??

total dead usually means the fuse---unplug the set for safety and remove back cover---follow power cord just inside and you will find the fuse in a snap in holder--check to see if bad.............if good let me know and I will try to assist you.

Tv turns off at differing intervals.

It's probably time to buy a new lamp. They can be very expensive to buy, sometimes up to 400 or 500 dollars. If you think the lamp might be failing prematurely, contact LG's support or warranty department to see what your options are. If you must buy a new lamp, you should check into relamping the existing housing for the bulb. Some bulbs are easy to change the bulb and leave the reflector, saving you money, however, most of them are not easy to change. you'll have to check online.

My Samsung hcn4226w won't stay on.

There are many protective circuits inside the set that will shut it down if a problem is detected. It sounds like there are intermittant detections of problems and the "restart" temporarily clears the problem. If the unit is no longer under warranty, open up the back with the set unplugged and try reseating all of the boards and connectors. The trip may have jared a few things loose. Update this with the results.
