My panasonic 1080i tv will flash green for approx 100 pulses then switch to red

I have tried leaving the television unplugged for 15 minutes but the same thing happens. I tried counting the pulses and got to approx 98 green before switching to red and was well over 100 red blinks.

    Once upon a time there were two really bad Panasonic sets this one and the PT-50lc13 both made about the same time. I would suggest you or someone who can get at the lamp it uses first examine it----the LC13 was recalled and all were exchanged as both it and yours were killing the lamps---the lamp should be examined and note the Panasonic ones should have a 2,000 hour or two year life. It is customer replacable and should be the first thing to look at.

    looks like part of the bulb is broken. There is a loose piece of glass from what I would assume is the filament. Is that a serviceable bulb and if so is it worth replacing the bulb or go with the housing?

    some advice, do not just replace the bulb with a generic one--those have a much shorter life and that is the reason they are cheaper, get a good one and shop the warranty as well, some are 30 days and some up to a year---if a broken piece of glass you may be very lucky

I have a 50" Philips

Most likely the power supply capacitors are going bad.
Opening the TV and replacing any swollen caps may solve your issue.

The tv will not switch on at the on/off it flashes green makes a clicking sound then the light goes red and flashes slowly at intervals

sounds that you may need to get a service repair for it, but try to turn it off, then unplug it. press the on/off switch for about 10 to 15 secs while unplugged, then wait for about 1 to 2 minutes, plug it back and test it again.

The power light is just blinking red on my panasonic 1080i hdtv. cant even switch it off using the power button. picture and sound come on for about a second when the tv is switched on after power cord...

The power light keeps flashing and the tv won't turn on. If you unplug for a minute and hit the power button it sound like it is coming on then it shuts off and the red power light flashes slowly. The TV is a Panisonic 1080i HDTV, about 6-7 years old.

Stand by light flashes red on powering up with remote and the green light flashes approx 15 or times before the screen illuminates.

thats pretty normal, it takes a good second or two to warm up and the display to turn on(at least0, you get the green flashes as you hold for on, 1 sec is a long time at times, lol, be patient, no problem with your tv!

Flashing RED lights in Panasonic TVs means a fatal error code. Unplug the TV, wait 1 minute and replug. If the LED still flashes it needs professional service.

Panasonic PT-50L14 50 inch will not turn on.

i looked at a copy of you owners manual, look at page 97 to 100. I suspect the red blikning light is the lamp led. if it is i suspect a bad lamp. the lamps are customer replaceable. page 98 show how to replace the lamp. unplug the tv & remove the lamp, look at it to see if it is damaged (inside the lamp is there any broken pieces of glass?) lamps are around 150.00 to 500.00. good luck.
