Question about Panasonic PT-43LC14 43" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Okay, so my Panasonic PT-43LC14 went black in mid show last night. The bulb is approximately 18 months old. The LED indicators upon Power On are; Power LED blinks green for approximately 70 seconds; Then the Power LED switches to Red Blink, and the LAMP indicator blinks once every 5 seconds. Service manual indicates this means lamp or ballast issue. I've inspected the lamp, and it doesn't appear to be burned out. I've disassembled the TV and check the ballast for visual issues and see none. Upon power on for the past year, when the lamp turns on, there is a single audible Click. Since the no picture issue, there is no audible click. But, with the rear panel off, I can hear a faint repeated click if I listen very closely. The sound comes from the right sight of the ballast, closest to the lamp. Checked the fuse in the ballast for continuity, and it seemed fine. Thoughts?

Check the bulb again and look at the root of where the main stem comes out inside and be sure you don't see any bubble like appearence around the stem at the bottom there. If you do see this then the bulb is bad. Otherwise try this: Hold volume down on front of unit and pip on remote for about 5 seconds. Message will come on screen that timer has been reset to zero. This sets the lamp timer to 0

The TV shutdown error code can help you with this problem. If the power led flashes green for 2 Min's then red. The Lamp led should flash red 1-2-3 or 4 time every 5 Min's. These are error codes that may point you in the right direction to you problem.

Flashing Green Power on light not picture


Last Saturday evening, I experienced the exact same behavior on my Panasonic PT-52LCX65; it shut itself off without warning. I turned it back on, and it shut itself back off after about a minute, and the red "Lamp" LED on the TV began blinking.

I never got any warning message that the lamp was about to go out, but I've just replaced the lamp and now the TV is working just fine. We had to mail-order the new lamp, because neither H. H. Gregg (where I bought the TV on "Black Friday" 3 years ago), Fry's Electronics, nor Best Buy carries the part locally.

My wife found the new bulb WITH its holding apparatus for something like $120 online, roughly half what other sites were charging. We paid roughly $55 for UPS Next Day Air. The first bulb that was sent arrived broken (some UPS rep apparently thought "Fragile" meant "Shake and Drop"), but the company we ordered from cheerfully rushed us another one, and the second one was in much better shape. (Panasonic doesn't pack these replacement bulbs very well; there's a heavy bulb with a lot of air around it that Panasonic doesn't fill.)

More details available if anyone wants 'em. Hope this helps. -- ChuckE
