Question about Panasonic PT-40LC12 40 in. LCD Television
It usually takes 3 trys or more to turn the tv on. Each try the green light will flash for a while and then the red light blinks and the red lamp light will blink about every 4th time. Then when the tv turns on it will turn off again anywhere from immediately to a few hours of use at which time the red light blinks again along with the red lamp light. I seem to have an easiere time turning it on when it is warmer in the room. When I get home I turn the air on, so it's warm when I first get home. I tried switching out lamps. I had the lamp I took out when the "change lamp" light came on a year ago but get the same result. The tv worked fine before I moved but had it shipped in our last move and wonder if something go jarred loose.
Sounds like it may have been jarred or theres a larger tall capacitor in the power supply that goes bad in these sets alot. Its not something a layman should attemt. As a matter of fact the only thing in this set that is user replaceable, is the lamp. Sorry but your going to need the service manual and soecialized tools tom trouble shoot this set. you really should seek out a pro for this repair.
