Question about Panasonic PT-51G53 51" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

Sound but no picture

I noticed lately the picture had been shaking but just last night when I turned it on, the picture was good for about 5 minutes and then it went away leaving a small rainbow of color across the middle of the screen. I have perfect sound and sometimes the picture will reappear for a few minutes and it's gone again. Can you help?

His is the vertical circuit going bad. you willl need a repairman for this. unless you can solder? a cost of repair might range around 400.00 good luck :)

Re: Sound but no picture

Was it shaking up and down or from side to side?? It could be a verticale sweep problem as thats the most common fault in this set and another one is the horizontal output goes bad because of a defective high voltage transformer. It could also have bad capacitors on the secondary side of the flyback switching supply. This is a hard call with out seeing a schematic. Good Luck.

I've had a Samsung HLR5064W for almost 5 years. Lately I've noticed when I turn the set on, the picture dims after about a minute. Is this a lamp issue??

Yes it's the lamp. I had the same issue in the middle of last year. I bought the whole bulb assembly for $220 Canadian. I'm confident that it was through Samsung USA.
I did find a site that said you could "save money" by buying the bulb only, but their price was the same for the bulb alone, as I paid for the whole assembly.
It took about 15 minutes to get the bad one out, and put the good one in.
Now I need to find out how to adjust the mirror angle...
Good luck

Picture has gone bad on my 70 in Misubishi

My recommendation is have a svc co. look at it. That model was noted for multiple electrolytic caps being bad and also solder joints. As long as the picture was good prior to your problem then I would say it's worth repairing. I worked on the same model for 3hrs to take care of all the problems and preventive maintenance.

TV picture goes out

The tv is shutting down because of a power problem. It could be the power transformer or a color gun overheating. Expect at least a couple of hundred dollars to fix it. Some shops will do house calls for around $65 and can diagnose the problem and give you an estimate. Usually they can just remove the board, take it to the shop and repair it, then reinstall it.

Power light flashing/ no picture

I have the same problem. The only way to get the TV to come on is to unplug it, but once you get it back on it turns itself off again in a few minutes.
