Our tv suddenly began showing what looks like a rainbow on the bottom third of the screen (last evening). Tonight, it is even more pronounced. What's going on?

    The advice was right on the mark, My husband replaced the ICs with the help of Sonny from the servicemanuals.vstore site. Our tv actually seems to have an even better picture than before. Thank you so very much for the help!

    I have a PANASONIC PT-51G45CU rear projection tv...made in 1997. I would like to fix it, but don't want to put alot of money into it. If I could fix it myself, it would be great. The tv has a blue wave across bottom third of it, kinda looks like you have 3d glasses on. You can still see the whole picture on the screen all the way around, just bottom part has that blueish wave through it. Don't know what is wrong with it, could someone please help...thanks..John.

The screen has a rainbow of red blue and green on bottom


The specs say this is a CRT type projection system, so it could be related to the display or to the TV. Since this has an SD card, it might be good to plug in the memory card with some pictures on it, and see if the problem persists with a source other than the tuner. That might at least narrow down whether you have a display failure/adjustment issue or something else.

Tv won't power up


Check the inverter if you do not know what a inverter is chances are you need to bring this into a shop and have this repaired as first the inverter goes then the lcd makes colorful rainbows this would be the first thing I would check.

Horizontal color line across the screen


Most likely a bad Vertical IC or bad connections on the vertical IC. don't continue trying it on. If you have a bad connection it could do more damage. You also could damage the CRT ( picture tube ). If you remove the cover and look at the bottom side of the PC bord with a good magnifiing glass you may see what looks like rings around the leads comming from the Vertical IC. The Vertical IC is mounted on a heat sink usually towards the front of the set looking from back. If you do see the rings around the leads try reheating with a solder iron. If this dosen't fix you most likely need a new IC.

Rainbow effect at top of screen


This is a convergence problem that can be as simple as poor solder connections on the pins of the convergence ICs or defective ICs. If you wish to attemp the repair yourself, please let me know and I'll look up the parts and provide additional details and instructions. Also, please confirm your model number.

Thanks,

Cracking noise and flickering screen


Sounds like you have a bad flyback Transformer...Crackling is high voltage leaking. I would quit turning it on and replace the main board in the set if you are good at soldering you can replace the flyback transformer but cost wise it is easier to replace main board. 20" might not even be worth the repair.
