Question about Panasonic PT-45LC12 45" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
Today during the superbowl of all times, the TV shut off and the lamp light started blinking 4 times. I turned the TV back on, it stayed on for about 30 seconds, then shut off again, with the lamp light blinking 4 times. I checked the lamp, all of the connections, the fan, and it all seemed to be working just fine. I finished the game on my old TV downstairs, and when it was over, turned the TV on again. This time it stayed on for a longer period of time (about 30 minutes), but then shut off again. Why is it doing this, and how can I fix it??
If it's staying on for just a short period of time it sounds like there is a sensor that is giving the unit a faulty condition (Perhaps for reason or due to a fault in the sensor). There are normally a few temp sensors in the TV around the Lamp and Ballast. They may be bad, or the lamp or ballast is just generating too much heat.

If the power light blinks slowly,
you've tried to turn on the TV during
the lamp cooldown cycle. Wait
approximately 30 seconds, and the TV
will turn on automatically.
If light blinks, pauses for about a
minute, and blinks again: the lamp is
trying to turn on (TV will turn on
when successful). If TV doesn't turn
on and sequence continues, the lamp also
needs to be replaced.

Have your TV serial number
and lamp type available (you'll
find this information on the
sticker that's on the right side of
