I had the same problem with my Panasonic tv, just 3 days after a technician came out to fix "fuzzy spots" which were multi colored, but mostly green spots. I really thought that the technician was in some way responsible, but Panasonic insisted that there was no possible way he was. It was going to cost $240.00 for him to come out to clean the air filter, and both the technician and Panasonic insisted that I couldn't do it myself. I had decided to buy a new tv to cut my losses. My boyfriend talked me into trying to fix it, we are both sort of mechanically inclined, and it was going in the trash anyway.
We took the back and top off the tv. It took some looking, but we finally found the filter, just over the projector. We removed the cover, it has to be done from the back of the tv, it is black and held on by 4 small screws, be careful not to drop them into the tv, we dropped one, but it shook out. We vacuumed the filter really well, and vacuumed around everywhere. We put the tv back together, not expecting it to work, but thinking at least we tried. It works great. It has only been a few days, but it seems like the problem has been solved.
Good luck if you decide to try. I have decided not to put another penny into the tv.

I have a sony kf50xbr800. This TV was purchased new in 2001. After 5 1/2 years the lamp had to get replace. TV been working good till now. While watching tv it will go to stand by mode, after about 2-min's...


The thought is that it needs to be either cleaned out. Dust build up in it's air intake filter or you probably need another new lamp. Usually when these set's shut themselves down is because they are overheating or they can't maintain the voltage to keep the lamp lit.

32" Insignia (Model IS-LCD32) Temporary Solution!


Hi there! Sounds like loose connections or cold solder on either PSU or main board. May also be control board if you mention the fact that menu screen pops in and out. If still under warranty I would return it to the supplier or else refer to a repairer. Best Wishes and Good Luck, JUS004

Air analog 3 message keeps popping up what does that mean?


I bought the 32 inch LCD tv. I contacted Sharp. Here is there response.
Thank you for contacting Sharp Electronics Corporation.

The display will populate on screen any time there is a change to the incoming signal (mono to stereo audio, weak/fluctuating signal strength). Unfortunately there is no way to deactivate the on screen display. If you are able, try using an alternate connection (composite video and analog audio; yellow, red and white cables) from your source device (cable/sat box, if using) to the unit. This will prevent this issue from occurring by providing a more consistent signal. Let me know if you have any other questions!

Panasonic PT-60LCX64 Air Filter Cleaning


Cleaning filter for the Panansonic PT-501LCX64.

I just had a T.V. tech do this. The filters are located on the two removable filters on the back side of the T.V. They look like the speaker units. He removed those two units, unplugged them & set them on the floor. He took some type of electronic cleaner with a cloth & wiped them down. The filters themselves are plastic. He explained that air flows through some tube connected to these plastic filters for cooling down below. He admitted they didn't look dirty--put everything back together & it is working fine now.

I imagine that dirty or not the timer is automatically set for every 400 hrs. of use to give you the prompt that the filter needs cleaning & will shut off in one minute so you can call a T.V. tech?

So to reset the timer--follow the other detailed prompts listed on this board & or use your owners manual & follow the prompts for replacing the bulb. That should take you somewhere to reset the timer--so you have another 400 hours of operation.

I believe it's with the T.V. turned off--hold down the down volume on your tv itself while holding the swap button on the remote control for 5-7 seconds---then follow the prompts. You should see a prompt for replacing a bulb & then one for filter cleaning. Then just reset the timer.

Hopefully this will help?

Air Filter Cleaning error message


There are indeed 2 air filters on the light engine. To clean these, it is necessary to open up the television's back lower panel, remove an electrical component, then slide out the projection unit (you must be very careful - this is over $600 to replace if you break it). The air filters are pretty easy to clean...I used gentle strokes from a soft bristle hobby paintbrush and blowing (I wouldn't recommend using a can of compressed air for this...these filters are somewhat fragile). Dust out the rest of the unit pretty good (use EXTREME caution when doing this). Then put everything back together, and then you have to go through the re-alignment procedure. You can obtain the technical service manual on the Internet...sorry, but I can't help you find it...I am not sure about the legal/copyright ramifications of distributing the manual w/o Panasonic's permission...but its out there...Google is your friend. I would NOT attempt this repair without this manual...it contains crucial diagrams, and "gotcha" warnings (like what order to tighten screws for example). This isn't a hard repair if you just take the time to prepare, move slowly and methodically, and don't be in a rush. Good Luck!
