Question about Panasonic PT-40LC12 40 in. LCD Television
I have noticed yellowish/pink tints on only parts of the video and even if I have reconnected the hookups the spots still remain in the same place on the screen. Please let me know what this could be for I fear being ripped off by a technician.
This is a contaminated light engine, this TV is notorious for this. A techniciian who is familiar with this tv can TRY to clean it with canned air and a tiny brush. Panasonic even has a part number for it (basically a water color paint brush). The disassembly and procedure is involved and the results are mixed. If it can not be cleaned the only option is to replace the engine which is not cost effective. It will probably cost you a couple hundred to have the cleaning procedure done but some technicians will be hesitant because it is a lot of work and if it does not solve the problem most people will not want to pay the labor for little or no results. Good Luck
