Question about Panasonic PT-47WX51 47" Rear Projection Television
Hope someboby out there can help. TV now 4 yrs old and is a great set. Recently it has been changing skin tones especially to a horrid lime green. The effect only lasts for 5-20 seconds, some days not at all and others a few episodes over a few minutes. The picture / convergence are all fine. I want to knock this on the head before it becomes a real problem. Regards, Ron Huston
You say changing skin tones and green problem. Well it sounds like CRT maybe going. Have this set been used for gaming? (Playstation, XBOX, etc) If so this has alot to do with it. Also you can see problems like this if loose connection around crt boards(on neck of tubes) check all three good. sometimes you can tapp on slightly and see a change. Use something rubber and be careful not to damage yourself or anything else.

Usually what I find in a case like that is that there is a loose solder joint on the CRT board of the red picture tube. When the connection is good the picture looks fine but when it lets go the picture turns that awful greenish-blue. On most sets the bottom front of the TV will disassemble to allow access to the CRT boards, and the solder joints can be resoldered quite easily. If you do not have experience resoldering boards in a projection TV then allow a qualified tech to handle it for you.
