Re: no picture

In the late 70's I was OJT for America West TV, the ink still wet on my CET diploma. I can remember my instructor Bod Fagren saying, "if you're not certain you can do it don't attempt to guess, ask questions..." It sound like what youre describing is a loss of vertical deflection. This is usually caused by the vertical IC having shorted out. In the 61H60 that IC is Q301 an LA7833s Toshiba p/n#23319787 and costs about $20 bucks. But other components feeding that IC, resistors and caps should be tested to determine if the IC failed due to heat or was stressed because of higher than normal voltages. In all a shop usually carries that part on-hand or has access to it. And the repair can usually be completed in a couple of hours. In short, I'd have it done by a reputable shop. Taking the TV to them will help keep the costs down too. If you're not too sure where to find a good repair shop try calling NESDA (National Electronic Service Dealer's Assn.) and they can usually give you a couple of referrals to one of their member's shops in your area. Good Luck Bill

Picture problems

Is it one color that has moved? Sounds like a convergence problem. Find a channel with a fixed picture, or if you have digital cable or satellite pull up a guide, something with a straight line across the screen. You will likely see one of the colors is bowed or or shifted. You may be able to adjust that with your remote under the "convergence" adjustments in the menu. If it will not adjust it will need work done to the convergence circuit. Not a DIY project.

Typically this is a convergence problem and can be repair relatively easy. Refer to this video to determine if you truly have a convergence problem. Also make sure you use your TV's original remote to make this adjustment.

Curved blue lines on screen.

You have a completely different problem. The screen voltage for the blue picture tube is slightly too high on your set. This will put fine lines in the background of the picture, called retrace lines. This is very common and easy to correct. Remove the front speaker cover and the access panel behind it. Look inside and you will see a black box with six controls, each control having a little white glue on it. This is the Focus/Screen block. Three controls are labeled Focus and three are labeled Screen. The screen control in the center is for green but I am not sure if the screen control on the left or right is for blue for your model. With the TV on, set it to VIDEO 1 but do not connect anything to the VIDEO 1 jacks. This will produce a pure dark picture, showing any faint lines in the background. Choose one of the screen controls and increase (turn clockwise) it slightly. If the blue lines do not get brighter it means you are turning the red screen control, so put it back where it was and choose the other screen control. When you find the blue screen control, decrease (turn counter-clockwise) it until just when the blue lines are gone. If you want you can check that the red and green screen controls are set to just below the point where their faint lines are visible. When done, replace the panels and your picture will be back to perfect.

You are on the right track. The problem is actually with the green convergence IC that controls the alignment. The convergence ic's take the information from the 3 pictures and align them into one picture on the back of your screen. Although this is an economical repair it is complicated and should be left to a quailfied service technician. If you are not sure of a local technician, panasonic's website has a servicer locator that can guide you to one. Hope this helps

Blue screen with Green Star-burst image in center?

Here's something that might also be useful. After you turn on the set, and get the regular red blinky lights, hold down the Device and Menu buttons together for about 5 seconds.
The Power light will start to flash in a two digit sequence.

For example, 3 flashes, then 7 flashes = 37.

Here are the error codes, and the corresponding problem:

12 = No error detected, check power supply.
32 = Lamp Cover is open.
33 = Air filter cover is open.
34 = Lamp abnormality
36 = Light Engine (DMD or Lamp Fan stopped)
37 = Exhaust or Lamp Ballast Fan stopped
38 = Lamp Temperature High
39 = DMD Temperature High
41 = Short is detected
44 = DVI cable between FMT and Engine disconnected

Problems with green arching lines

yes there is a small black box with 6 controls on it, take off the bottom front of the tv, behind that you should find a black piece of plastic you can remove by taking out 2 more screws. the black box should be in the upper i don't remember if the top 3 are the screen controls or the focus controls. the rows should be labled, you are looking for the screen control row. the green control is the middle one. you can try turning down the control till you no longer see the green lines. try adjusting in a dark room, it will be easier to see the lines & when they are gone. if you problem is not solved by trying this, then i agree with your tech & the green tube is bad. good luck.
