Was doing an install the other day, customer had this particular TV. Hope I'm in the right forum, I've got a basic knowledge of TV's, and feel a bit overwhelmed (on the low end of the learning curve, here) ever since I got back from the ISF class in March.

Anyway, customer has a Panny PT43LC14, and is frustrated because he can't just listen to audio (music channels, etc...) without running up the hours on the lamp. I told him I'd look into it.

Any suggestions?

Respectfully,



Joseph

If the customer is using some type of converter box, I would feed the audio outputs to an amp and bypass the TV audio totally. That way, the TV would not have to be on to listen to audio.

I know of no TV (including the PT-43LC14) that will operate without the lamp being on. Even using a defective lamp will not pass the startup sequence and have the TV operational.

That which may be known of God is evident within man, for God has shown it to them, so that they are without excuse. (Romans 1:19-20)

Thanks, Tom. Is there an area of the forum where I can read threads that have specific info pertaining to the various types of TV and their technical differences? I've seen some stuff that's like "Plasma vs. LCD" with a poll, and stuff of that nature, but like I said...low end of the learning curve, and I'm trying to play sponge right now.

Thanks,



Joseph
