Panasonic PT-61G52V Serial # MY 72060014, Set manufactured in July 1997. Set won't stay on. Turns on, picture and sound are normal for about 2 minutes. Then, shuts itself off, makes some popping and thumping noises, and sometimes will come back on after about 15 minutes, sometimes won't come back on at all. Local repair guy says $150 to diagnose and advise. Is this a viable set to repair? Hate to dump $150 bucks into a ten year old set, but if I could get it repaired for less than say $300 it might give me another few years of service. Any thoughts?

Try to find the defect if it is started try to manipulate the components by a wooden or plastic object that because of differences in time, but more priority to think its a thermal defect try to speeding up the time that the tellevision will shuts off with an hot hair dryer and a canister cold spray to freeze some places in the hope that it will start up to find the place where react the faultering defect component on.

Panasonic PT-56LCZ70 T.V. works fine but the picture is red. Any ideas why?

If you mean the picture has a red cast to it you can go into your setup mode and change teh color temp setting to normal or cool. It sounds like it is set in the warm mode which adds more red to your picture.

Reset Time Problem on Panasonic TV (PT-50LC13)

Power on the set, listen for afaint buzzing sound as the set tries to fire up. If you do not here it then your lamp driver, or ballast is most likely faulty. Also make sure you have the door and all covers back in place and secure. And make sure you insatlled an orginal panasonic lamp because some generic will not work.

It shuts off all by its self but not all the time

If I was working on this set I would look for cold solder joints on IC501 Vertical output IC.
