How to set up the colour on my Panasonic Viera TV

Here is a copy of your users manual, it tells you how to adjust the color on the TV, Magnets do not affect Plasma TV's. If your picture looks bad you might have a defective or failing part if you just need to turn the red up or down or make the picture more blue or green the users manual tells you how to adjust it.

Orange tint too screen

To know what is wrong do a simple test almost anyone can do

Model listed has three picture tubes, with rear cover removed turn set on and look into the three lens, each should have a picture--one red, one green and one blue.

If any one of the three look like a floodlight you have bad glycol in that tube.

This will not be a do it yourself repair, The liquid is toxic and like antifreeze to keep the face of each tube cool.

Do not attempt to take the lens of the affected tube apart, that can be fatal to you and the set.

Let me know what you find and I can give you options.

Picture has gone pink and there is no sound - Samsung HP-T4254

It sounds like either the X-Main board or the Main Board has failed. I recommend calling 1-800-samsung to find the nearest service center to repair it. You can spend a lot of money replacing parts on a plasma before you find the defective part.

Cracked plasma screen

A plasma display is a very expensive part to replace. When the plasma display is broken, the tv is usually not worth repair.

Call Nec at the number listed on the owner manual, and ask a quote on part or repair.

This sounds like your Z sustain board has gone bad. I just repaired an HP plasma today with the same complaint. All the modules inside were LG. The Z board is the one on the Right side of the set with the cover off or facing the back. You might have 1 or 2 ceramic fuses on it, check them, if one is bad Replace the board.

Have you ever had this problem?

Sorry Ginko, but a convergence problem would have the curves down from the top and up from the bottom. The hourglass shape is a pincushion problem. This can be as simple as a bad capacitor in the pincushion circuit.

Could you please confirm the model number so I can look up the probable part?

If the Video (Picture/Pix) is gone but you can hear the Audio (sound), then it could mean the YSUS PCB Assembly is gone/kaput/finish. Can replace the PCB, not repair the PCB due to timing circuitry involve. Cost maybe roughly $500 depending where you located. The PCB is located on the left hand side of your TV when you are facing the back (Back open). Might find 3-4 brown flex membrane connecting to the plasma panel. The PCB has a silver or black aluminum heatsink (big) on it.
Good Luck.

Pincushion Picture on a big TV screen!!!

The set has 3 IC's(one for each color)strictly dedicated for the aligment of each color,if one them does not align is because is going bad or is already bad becuase picture can not be adjusted,the IC's can be identify because they are mounted on a heat sink and have the markings STK--- ---,they are all the same and need to be replaced with an exact replacement.If you are familiar with tv service you can replace them,sometimes the new ones need to be aligned from the service menu,you will need the service manual,soldering and unsoldering will be involved,If you are not too familiar be safe and seek the assistance of a servicer.
