For a few chassis types of the Panasonic DLP projection sets (not the CRT tube type), this issue is resolved with a firmware upgrade on the light engine. Your firmware somehow got corrupted and it will degrade with time to even more spots. The new software is robust and self-correcting and have never been back to the homes where the upgrade was done. Many times, power outages, static discharge, or killing the AC power until the set turns itself COMPLETELY OFF (such as plugging the power cord into a cable box with the AC outlet set to "switched"), can cause this.

The fix provided by the factory (usually for free) and should be done by an authorized service center. Don't try this yourself... Simply call the Panasonic helpline, explain the problem, ask politely for a
concession form for repair and the recommended servicer in your area.

MOST IMPORTANT!!! Call ONLY a factory authorized service center! Anyone who asks for money to fix your set is jerking you around and don't use them. I've met people suckered into buying a new light engine to repair their set...

Color splotch when TV is powered on, then TV powers down automatically


Good Day;
It is very common for this model from what you spoke. If you handy return to me, Big Irish, and I will continue to help you.

99.9 % of the time of what you stated it sounds like a shorted CRT, picture tube. I have seen hundreds.
First, call the manufacture and complain about your concern and ask them for a CONCESSION because your tube has gone out.
2.If that does not work ; call a factory authorized service dealer to confirm problem and get an estimate, then return ti #1.
Good Luck, Day, Big Irish. I hope I helped.

Light green and pink spots on my hd tv!!!


Tiny particles of dust on the light engine lens can cause this (and was a service call for me about a month ago), or possibly the expensive light engine.
