Question about Panasonic PT-40LC12 40" Rear Projection HDTV

4 Answers

Panasonic PT40LC12 - Blinking green power light - no lamp fire up.

Lamp is new, Push power on and only get green flashing light. Fans are working. No lamp fire up. Opened unit and found all fuses ok. Found that the thermistor/temp measuring device is suspect, no resistance across legs. There is a label there that says F701 see service manual - Need to get another thermistor/device - do you have the part number? On the thermistor/component itself is written: L3 TAM 250V 5A Tf 115c (centigrade) 013 Thanks Tom

One has to take the set apart to replace. Do it yourself only if you have the skills and abilities to do basic repair of electronic equipment!

Lamp never fires Unit goes right to cool/shutdown.


The ballast might have gone bad, you'll need to check the output voltage of it. In some projectors, the power supply/ballast are combined as one PCB instead of 2 separate boards.

I've just replaced the lamp on my Panasonic PT-LM2E projector and it will switch on but no light comes out. The previous lamp blew in the projector after around 2000 hrs. The indicators are as...


I'd recommend checking the fans of the projector, and make sure that they're spinning. Since you've mentioned that the lamp blew inside the unit, bits and pieces of the lamp might have lodged itself within the fans. It might also have to do w/ the after-market replacement bulb, which I normally wouldn't recommend.

PT-AE700E projector appears to have gone kaput - not lighting up.


Because of high voltages and heat, there are many safety circuits inside these units. If you have a spare lamp, try replacing the lamp. Initial checks are made before the lamp is fired and sometimes a defective lamp can cause this. Also, can you descruibe what you mean by "noisier than usual"? Is the fan making more noise? Something elase making a noise?

Thanks,
Dan

A new bulb has been replaced. The red power light


Are you SURE that the lamp door switch is properly in place?? This sounds like a problem of this type. If this is Ok, and the lamp does NOT try and strike, check to see if the fans are starting. if they try and start, and then the set shuts down, one of the fans is bad or clogged with dirt. If NOTHING happens but the 3 blink code and the door switch is ok--perhaps the thermal sensor above the lamp has opened, due to excess heat and/or poor ventilation.

Hi I am having trouble with an LT180 DLP I'm getting a series of error messages culminating in the power light steady orange and the status light flashing a series of 6 flashes red. Inside I found that...


both lights flashing green indicate the projector lost power while it was running (didn't get to go through shutdown procedure). if the status light blinks 6 times, the lamp is failing to strike (one time means the cover is open, 2 times is a temperature issue, and 4 times is the fan). if it comes on and shuts off a short time later (less than 15 seconds), the ballast is going bad and needs replacing. if it didn't come on at all, it'd be either the ballast or the colorwheel. if the lamp light was red, it would be the lamp that needs replacing. nec won't sell parts to anyone who is not an authorized nec service center, so you'd need to contact one to get the part (although they may not sell it to you). but good luck!

My Viewsonic PJ458D lamp not coming on


I have the same problem before. I found a replacement fan. A computer chassis fan works perfect. It should be 60mmx60mm - plenty in E-bay for about $5.00. Very easy to open the unit to replace the fan. It has 2 fans in a rubber housing. Check which one need replacement.

Projector lamp flashes and the temp red led lights.


Purchased our76C in Jan, 2007. It is our second unit now that has had the same symptoms. When the unit starts up, the Power light is steady green as normal for a few minutes, but no image is projected. After a few minutes the lights do as you described. Both times Epson support authorized a new unit to be shipped out immediately. They said they had no known issues about it and didn't indicate what was causing the problem. Apparently it is not just the lamp wither. Also, the lamps both had under 20 hours on them.
