Question about Panasonic TC-26LX20 26 in. HD-Ready LCD Television

Grey cloud across the screen

I bought the TV in Feb of 2005 - I started to notice this grey cloud creeping across the TV around Feb of 2007. It started on the right and is now almost all the way across the TV. I called Panasonic 877-958-4372 and asked if this was a known defect. Though they were courteous I was kinda shocked when they said "you are the 1st to mention this .. it is expected that with all the sets manufactured there will be a few that will have defects". I understand the reality of that statement but to have them simply pass it off as "oh well that happens" was kinda surprising. With costs being low compared to 2005 I am simply going to purchase a TV other than Panasonic and put this one to the curb...

Sounds like a backlight failure I suppose. It's a lot of work to fix them.

Blurry, purple bar across middle of plasma tv screen


Plasma screens are extremely susceptible to getting broken from any impacts to the face of the screen. What you are describing sound very much like distorted or dead pixels. It may not be a fixable issue, you may have to replace the entire unit or live with the purple bar. The reason you don't notice it as much when the screen is dark is because purple is on the darker end of the spectrum, and will be most visible in contrast to lighter ad brighter colors.

Grey cloud


This sounds like a diffuser problem. Basically the LCD Panel is defective.

32" LCD TV use about 8 horizontally mounted flourescent bulbs. They use a plastic material that diffuses (spreads) the light from each bulb evenly on the screen. If this Diffusion Material becomes wrinkled it will leave a grey cloudy look on the screen.

It is possible that the LCD Panel Glass is defective buy honestly I would guess the diffuser.

This isn't cheaply repairable and it is better to replace the TV unless you are experinced with Electronics repair. There may be a possibility to pull this material out and replace it with something readily available from Home Depot but I have not tried this before. It is possible to pull this from another LCD TV.

Gray cloud


If the stain is irregular and static that is a faulty LCD display. The repair is expensive. Contact Polaroid at the number listed on owners manual as the TV has one year factory warranty cover.

Blue area near center of screen


Uh Oh! blue screen of death. Your light engine has warped a little from overheating and is distorting the picture.

My suggestion to you is to get on the phone with hitachi and start complaining, then keep complaining until they agree to pay for it. You may have to get the problem diagnosed by a pro before they agree to pay for it though.
