Usualy when there is a pop or bang, you can be sure that a component physicaly blew up inside!

The fix is to change the associated circuit board(s), or if possible the parts inlvolved. The cause of failure must also be found.

You local TV service man will most likely not be able to properly service this type of set, unless he is properly trained and equiped for this type of service, has access to all the proper test facilities, service manuals, and spare parts.

I would suggest finding out who the authorized service rep is in your area and send them the set for an estimate.

The picture just went off we heard a pop then no pic. We have sound . It is 6 years old appr.


It is the bulb, fuze, power board, or video processing board. Only the bulb or a fuze is user replaceable. All others you should seek out a qualified service tech.

I heard a popping sound and the tv screen went blank. Can you help?


The noise you've heard is more likely from the bulb blowing up. I would suggest to remove the lamp and visually inspect it.
Have you replaced the lamp on this DLP before?
Download the user's guide from this link and see page # 24 and 25 for more info about the lamp part number and how to replace it.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

New bulb worked for a short trail run now wont light up. flashing green led colour wheel is turning on start up


when you changed the lamp, did you blow the dust out of the projector? if the screen on the side of the lamp is blocked (i.e. with dust), the lamp will blow quickly. if the projector were to overheat, by the fans not running or blocked vents, everything would shut down and the led would blink red.

Tv picture does not come on


my first question is have you checked the bulb. the loud pop sound like the bulb blew and the rattling sounds like the lamos trying to fire. remove the bulb cover and unscrew the bulb

No picture, just sound


You need to replace your projection light bulb - the part can run from $100-350 depending on how you shop around, I would suggest ebay- as this was the cheapest route for me.

Made a pop sound then screen went black- won't power back on


I'm sure you've resolved this by now, but I am brand new to this site and have the same TV, and have had the same issue. Sorry it's a bit late.

The pop was definitely the bulb bursting. You can pretty easily do this bulb replacement yourself as Panasonic has provided a nice little pull out module that can be removed by popping the front plate off (which requires no tools at all) and then opening the hatch where the bulb assembly is and loosening just one screw. Once that is done you will be able to slide the entire bulb assembly out of the TV. Though they don't always shatter, I suspect that since you heard it "pop", you will find this assembly full of broken glass.

You can either buy an entire new assembly such as this one...

and just slide the new one in,

or if you're comfortable with it, you can open this lamp assembly up by removing just a few more screws (about 4) and just replacing the bulb. I did need to buy a very long #2 Phillips head screw driver to reach one of the screws.

If you search Google for TY-LA1000 you will find both the lamp kit and just the bulb. Be careful though for the really cheap bulbs, it does make a difference, so if it seems drastically cheaper than all the others, there is likely a reason.

Hope this helps you and sorry for the slow response.

I have a 56" Toshiba DLP TV, yesterday evening while watching the CNN news we have heard a cracking sound and the video disappeared, the screen went black. The audio was OK, but the two pilot lights...


Hi when was the bulb last changed as when the bulb goes it will do this. at the back of the tv is a panel, it will have vents an a sign saying something like bulb on it the bulb is in there and there is a screw holding this cover on and inside is a clip that holds the bulb in place, remove bulb and check it for its colour if its black then its blown and you just need a new one. if its damaged in any way replace it and do not touch the glass.

I think that the pop you heard was an electrolytic capacitor blowing its top on the picture frame board. If you are able to check this for yourself by looking on the board for the one/s with a bulging top or are a brownish/black colour like something has caught fire. And also in this situation smell can be of great help as it will smell burnt out but PLEASE before putting your nose or anything else in the tv take all necessary precautions against electric shock and discharge any electrolytic capacitors in the vicinity. If you are not able to do this yourself find a competant technician. Hope this helps.
