Question about Televison & Video
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...
