I bought a ct-34wx54 tv second hand and it works great but it has a green spot on it i did the geometric option thing and it just moved the green spot around i also tried a heavy duty degausser and it didnt fix it either any advice? i hope the tube is not bad its just a slight green spot in top right hand corner other wise tv works great
IN your statement says tv is second hand and also you tried degausser method also. The problem is permanent magnetic field affected your tv set. So the best recovery is fix one button magnet in the affected area.

This may be a main board issue if the green spot moves. This is repairable. This may be a panel issue if it does not move and it is present on the panasonic splash screen and if it affects the osd menu.
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.
You really need to be persistent. I went on the Panasonic customer support webseite and started a web exchange. The first two attempts ended with "call your local authorized service tech" , etc. The third time, I described the prolem again and asked if the authorized tech would have the tool to fix the eprom if that was the cause of the problem. They finally gave me a name for their scheduling department and said they would pay for the diagnosis. I was pretty happy about that, but even happier when they said that this was a known problem and they would pay for the repair as well. They scheduled a service call. The techs came and fixed the eprom error with their tool within 1/2 hour. That was about 5 weeks ago, and all looks good so far.
It honestly depends on what type of TV. If it's a sony 60" it has to be a rear projection model, if it was bought recently or in the last few years it would be a LCD rear projection model. Repair is not impossible nor out of the question. If the green spot is a color stain burned on the screen it's replaceable. However, the cost of a new screen and with installation can be pretty high. Even if it's the LCD projector it's still repairable. Cost could be around 700-1000 dollars. If thats considered to expensive to repair then the answer is yes. Even if the TV did cost more than that you can find some awesome deals on new DLP TV's not to far off from that price range.
Hi--Bought my panasonic pt-52lcx65 on sale for $2200 in 8/05. Replaced the lamp for about $300 in 1/08, just prior to Superbowl. Admittedly, this was to be expected after family members watched lots of tv over 30 months. However, two months later the blue spot emerged in 3/08, and red spot emerged 5/08. Set looks decorated by a Andy Warhol or Van Gogh wannabe. I'm looking for a fix it solution. Dr. Bob Heiliger, Lebanon, OH.
well , yes , you have to purchase a DEGAUSSING COIL to take care of this problem and know how to use it (which its very easy) available at electronic stores (try EBAY) What you do is you place the DEGAUSSING COIL in front of the color spot and do circular motions while slowly stepping away from it . that should take care of that.
