Question about Panasonic PT-44LCX65 Television

Spots on the screen

TV is 17 months old. I've been seeing a few dark blue spots gradually appear over the last few months and now an orange spot has appeared in a different location. I use this tv as both computer and tv and it is on sometimes 20 hours a day. I have an extended warranty, but the repair shop will be taking it away for at least 2 weeks, during which time I will be tv & computer-less. Is there anything I can do or is this outside of my limited bulb changing talents. I have NOT changed the bulb yet.

    Thank You.

    While I'd like to think the solution was that easy, as clean as the rest of the house is, I don't understand how dust would enter the cavity to get onto the mirror. Having sufficiently ruined enough SLR viewscreens, I'd rather NOT be polishing any Hubble's myself :)

    The blue spots are in a near diagonal pattern and the Orange in a near corresponding spot on the opposite side of the picture as the largest blue one, so it seems pattern-like.

Your problem could be dust or dirt on the lens inside the reflection cavity or the problem could be the light engine. If the problem is the light engine, thank god you have an extended warranty as the light engine alone cost somewhere around 1000 buck. Good Luck.

1,white spots appeared on screen,means the DMD is broken,you need a new DMD.
2,the projector running off after only a few minutes,means the Inductor (Sensing element),near the Color Wheel. Use a cotton swab moistened with alcohol to wipe the Inductor.

Dark spots on LCD screen


I hate to say it but what this is is contamination under the actual LCD glass. This propblem starts during the manufacturing process and can rear its ugly head over time or after running at high temperatures for long periods of time. It can also appear as dark 'tiger' stripes. There is nothing that can be done to repair this. If you have an extended warranty, the mfg should exchange the panel for you. If your warranty is up, take photos and contact Toshiba online and try to get them to cover this regardless. This is a mfg defect.

In most of the case, the problem is a defective display LCD panel, this problem in some terminology is called PIXEL RETAINING, it means the pixels are locked up, there is no good permanent solutions for it, you have to change the LCD panel.

TV issue


There are many causes for spots on top of an LCD rear projection tv, you are probably in the first two cases, both require part replacements and repair job.

If the spots are faint blue, green or pink shadows, then it can be a problem with the anti polarization panel placed on top of the LCD.

Similar spots (colored shadows) may be caused by a problem with the light engine, in that case the fix will be expensive.

If the spots are bright lights, like an aura, that is a problem with the color wheel.

Problems on the light tunnel can cause static gray shadows.

If the spots are static dark stains than that is lcd liquid, the LCD panel must be replaced.

Mistubishi WD-52527 52" LCD Projection TV


those are going to be dust spots on the LCD panels internal to the optical engine. i suggest that you take the screen off and take off the panel i nthe middle of the tv with 2 screws in it and there will be an area that has 3 metal fins covering thin orange ribbon cables. the 3 square objects at the end of those ribbon cables will be the LCD panels spray wiht air compressor unitl clean and that should greatly help your problem.
