I have a PT-44LCX65 I have replaced the bulb and now the tv is turning everything that is really bright to a green color. When in cinema mode and settings are dark it doesn't really do it, but if you put really bright you see green everywhere. I was wondering if there is any kind of solution for this? Thank you for your help

Re: green tint to bright spots on screen
Try to observe the problem when there is a white screen or predominantly white screen. If the screen is green or yellow where it should be white, its most likely a problem with one or more of the small LCD panels in the TV's light engine.
Its an expensive problem to fix. The light engine most likely will have to be replaced. Check with Panasonic customer relations for possible assistance.

Unfortunately your light engine(also know as optic block) may need to be replaced. If your tv is out of warranty, it will probably cost around $1000 to fix. There is a slim possibility that the optics lens could have dust on it and a tech could clean it for much less than that. This is a very common problem in any dlp tv and they are all expensive to fix. I've replaced several of them at our shop, but about half of the customers won't have the tv fixed and will get a new one. Good luck!
You need to contact a serviceman. Your light engine needs replaced. Panasonic requires prior tech authorization for parts order fulfillment such as this. PN: TZSC03045 It will be costly, roughly $800 with $250 core charge. Labor and trip fees are another thing altogether. I hope this helps.
I had the same problem, first a blue spot then a green spot showed up. I contacted Panasonic Customer Support. They sent someone out and they fixed the TV for free. They reprogrammed the EEPROM chip in the TV. It is a defect. My TV was 4 years old and out of warranty. They came out last week.
So long as it is not happening by something you have done. It will be fixed free of charge. Call them, it solves the problem.
There are a few other threads on this board with the same issue, some say green spots, some say red spots, in my case it was blue/purple spots, but the solution is the same for all of them. Contact Panasonic and tell them that you read online that they are offering a warranty repair for this known "fuzzy spots" issue. They will send out a local repairman who will perform an EEPROM update to one of the computer chips inside of your TV, and viola good as new. That is what others on this site suggested to me, and I did it and got all repairs covered under warranty by Panasonic even though my TV is 2+ out of the warranty period. Good luck!
