PT-47WX49 - Pink wavy horizontal lines

I have been having this issue for about a year now. My only 'temporary' fix has been to switch my cable box setting back and forth from 480p to 1080i ...back and forth whenever the lines show up. Some days I can go all day with either setting and some days I may have to switch a few times. I know it is not my STB since I can get the same lines during DVD play which is using a component input just as the STB.I even changed out he STB just in case. I am assuming that the component inputs are failing somehow. What is odd is I thought maybe it might be a heat issue but I can turn the TV on after being off all night and have the pink wavy lines from the get go. Anyone know what might be happening?

Re: PT-47WX49 - Pink wavy horizontal lines

Try doing a reset of the TV first. On Panasonics this is done with the TV on and then pressing on the POWER and ACTION (on the fron of the TV only) buttons at the same time until the screen blanks out or a diagnostic screen appears. Once you do this all custom functions (color,tint,channel memory) will be back to factory defaults.

Look to see if it happens on the rear audio and video inputs--that will narrow down where the problem is.

Be aware this model was RECALLED and all original owners were supposed to have the set replaced a few years ago.

Also rule out the signal---if using a cable box connect the cable without it directly to the coax fitting---box can cause this---stranger things have happened.

Horizontal lines on start up

I get the exact same issue, exepct now it never clears up. I have tried to find someone to come look at it but no one does "house calls" anymore and everyone I call makes it sound so easy to just toss this beast in a car and bring it in. One of the repair techs said the issue sounded like the board had been zapped by a lighting surge...but of course there was no way to be sure unless I brought the set in.

Horizontal lines when I first turn on my Pansonic 51" PT-51HW41 Projection TV

It's probably failing capacitors, does it squeal while this is happening?
