press recall and Volume- till solid screen shows, then hit recall till you see codes on top left, then hold volume- and mute(same time) till all codes return to 000000000000, then hit exit. turn off tv and check to see if it works

"panasonic pt 50dl54 50 in rear screen does no

Try disconnecting all of your HDMI cables and plugging the power cord of the TV into another wall outlet. If this resolves the issue, you may have had a small power surge from either your wall outlet or one of your source devices. It is recommended to connect your TV to a surge protector if you haven't done so already.

some times when the lamp is not sitting in place it will give you this problem. removed the lamp, put it back and make sure it goes all the way in. close the door and attach screws if any. remember if the lamp door is not close, your tv will not turn on. had the same problem until i reseted the lamp in place. good luck

Power Button Blinking Red

The number of blinks, called error codes, is crucial in determining what's wrong with your unit.. In this case the color wheel is faulty and needs to be replaced. In that unit the color wheel assembly is Panasonic p/n# TXFEN01RP4S and is available from many sources for about $390.00 plus shipping.
There are some companies like Tri-State-Module that have taken-up rebuilding color wheel assemblies but I can't be certain that this is one of the brand/models they support. If you can have it rebuilt you might save about half the price of a new one...
For your edification in the future here are the blink codes for your Tv:
1 | Load Shortage
2 | Over Volage
3 | Fan Sos
4 | Main 3.3v
5 | Lamp Disable
6 | Gc3fm-Iic
7 | Gc3fs-Iic
8 | Gc3i-Iic
9 | Color Wheel Stop

If I can help any other way just let me know...
Good Luck!

Can I reset the lamp timer without the original remote

No, original remote is needed for this--a universal will not cut it.If Panasonic the remotes are usually reasonably priced and have all the features you really need.

Noisy cooling fan

I will presume you have posted the correct model and brand (a lot of people here do not)IF the set has fans (confirm the brand and model) either they are covered with dust or you have a bad one----cleaning them on the blades often will fix this on PLASMA or even DLP sets.To know more I need the brand/model confirmed.

Panasonic PT-50DL54J DLP TV Flashing Light

I had the same problems that most of you have been having, tv turning on and off, lights flashing in all different colors, having to unplug tv to reset and all of that good stuff. I noticed that most of the time this would happen once the tv would start to heat up, and I could hear the fan working a little harder. Well I am not an electrician but It was very simple to unscrew the lower bottom park of the tv, where the fan and most of the electronics sit, then I used an oxygen tank ( I work for a medical company ) to blow out all the dust in the tv, ( you can olso use the compressed air use for computer, but if grandma or grampa have some O2 laying around, it works really good, LOL. )and was very surpriced to see how dusty it was, then I removed the MAIN FAN ( you only need to remove three screws, however there's a box in fron of it, which you'll have to remove first in order to get to the fan ). this may sound a little complicated, but trust me it is not, once you have taken the fan off, clean it all the way around ( best to use a clean rag, the compressed air was not doing the job.
long story short, once I cleaned the fan and put it all back together. The TV still didn't work LOL, Just kidding, It has been working perfect for a little over a week.
If I can help in any other way, please e-mail me @ [email protected]

hope this helps.

My Panasonic PT-50DL54J DLP television

The fault symptom as you indicates is with lamp problem itsef. If you are aware in electronic equipment repair, you can do it by yoursef. Replacing the lamp is a crucial work indeed. If you have confidence to do this work, chenge it by yoursef. Lamp can be detached from the TV, and can be replaced. There is a number for lamp and must be replaced with same type and number. There is a chance to break the lamp while taking in out from the device and to insert a new one. So if you are not so experienced, let it get replaced by any well experienced service technician I advice. OK.
