Question about Panasonic PT-43LC14 43" Rear Projection HDTV
I just purchased this TV from a frined about 4 months ago for a really good price. He purchased this unit about a year ago brand new and never had any problems with it. The unit was working perfect ever since i brought it from him and all of a sudden last week Tuesday I hit the power button on the remote and the TV turned on after about 10 to 15 seconds, which is normal but after it turned on it all of a sudden turned off. Now when ever I hit the power button the power light flashes on the TV which it normally did before it powered on but after 10 to 15 seconds the screen still stays blank and you can hear a like light rattling sound coming from the TV not sure what that is. I am not sure if a bulb blew or what is wrong with it. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you.
Sounds as you have a bad ballest. The ballest is the power supply that turns your lamp on. You can check your lamp by removing it and it should be clear and no broken pieces of glass. With the lamp removed install the cover and turn it on you should hear no noise and when the power light turns red you should see a LAMP red led blink every 5 seconds. If no noise then the lamp is bad. If you do hear noise you have a bad ballist. Hope this helps. Frank
