Question about Flat Panel Televisions

1 Answer

Red patches in black areas and halos in bright areas

This TV is just over 2 years old and is almost unwatchable due to the red bleeding in the black areas. Any advice on how I go about fixing this. It doesn't matter what the input is - Scart/ S-Video/ Ariel - I get the same problem.

    Adjusting the contrast doesn't seem to make much difference at all.

If you adjust the brightness or contrast does the "bleeding " get less or more apparent. This sounds like a high voltage problem that used to occur in CRT's.

How do I fix the problem with my TV? Details are below.


Normally on the Panasonic tv this will call for a service call. The key to getting it repaired correctly is to check for a certified Samsung repair shop because most of the parts come from Samsung. Now if you want to do your own research call to 800 number for Panasonic Tv see if there are any problems with that model that the manufacturer has extended but does not post. I had one repaired that the red light on also so I understand and it went out approximately 4 3/4 years. If your in the Atlanta area use Norman electronics they have repaired hundreds on tvs for me due to my work.

My TV has gradualy developed a blurred picture over the last month and now is unwatchable, is it worth fixing. It is 8 years old


guessing this is a rear projection tv. You did not provide a model number. Check the CRT fluid to be sure it is clear and not cloudy. Since you mentioned the problem was gradual over time, I'm guessing it is the fluid. This would be more obvious if you were seeing like a frosted look to the picture or dark areas and bright areas, which are caused as the fluid clouds up.

Your alternative is to try adjusting the focus of each bulb on the focus block of the tv. I think with an older Philips the focus block is in the back of the tv.

It seems as though you are using the component video inputs. If you are then more than likely you have bad connections between your peripherals(dvd, xbox, etc.) and your TV. Just make sure that all the connections are tight/pushed on to the terminals all the way and that you don't have bad cables.

I haven't found the cause. I find that leaving it switched on overnight cures it.
