Don't spend the money on replacing the light engine! Panasonic has a new eprom upgrade that fixes the problem. Took about 15 minutes for the repair tech to do the upgrade. My set was a little over a year old and Panasonic covered the repair.

Had the same problem. It is the light engine. Needs to be replaced. Was told it would cost $600+ to fix if I didnt have the warranty. Two weeks later Panasonic called and told me that they cant get parts for it and are upgrading people with the same problem to a 50 inch model.

It sounds like it could be either an issue with the video processing in the unit or an issue with the light engine in the unit.

Black spots on screen

I posted this answer to a similar question someone else had, but it looks like you have the same problem...

This sounds like your optical block is failing. This is a very expensive part to replace, so much so that it may be better to just buy another TV. Sony has had some tech problems it seems with these; here is a link to some further info:

There is loads of info on this page about your issue and other problems and Sony's remedy (if any) for reimbursement. Good luck.

Purple spots in the screen

I'd like you to try doing this, select the service menu, and if the spots are still there, it's an issue with the DMD Board but on the contrary it might be the Digital Video Board. If you're decided to purchase the board check discountdashmerchantdotcom they have pretty accesible prices and good service, the only thing is that they only offer warranty to service centers, but they're good :)

this is a touchy subject for sony. basically sony has increased the brightness levels for the backlights to have better color tones in thier lcd's. well the downfall of this is the white spots you are experiencing. this is not a defect, you will never get them to go away, the only thing you can do is to turn the backlight and brightness down to reduce the white spots. if you contact sony, there is a software upgrade that will help reduce this issue...
