"But I still highly recommend not using an xbox on these big screen tv's since it will shorten the lifespan of the video chips by 50%!" Care to cite a source for this claim? Sounds like fishy hearsay to me. In any event, yes you will definitely need to make a service call to get this repaired. I'm having the same issue right now with mine and not long ago I had a capacitor go bad (which also required a $400 house call). Though I don't have the links anymore, a google search found me a few do-it-yourself forums that had some anecdotal instructions on how to replace the parts yourself. From what I read, in most cases these parts are under $50, but don't quote me on that.

I had the same issue. Basically, it's a convergence problem. The video chips overheat. And believe it or not this will happen every 4 or 5 years. I paid $400 to fix my Panasonic big screen tv. To top it off, I believe it was my xbox that did it - well, maybe it just pushed it over the edge since I've also had my tv for 4 years. But I still highly recommend not using an xbox on these big screen tv's since it will shorten the lifespan of the video chips by 50%! Rich

Hdtv with yellow half circle on bottom of screen

Odds are real good that the cooling fluid in the blue picture tube assembly has become contaminated. Only solution is to pull blue crt and dump out old fluid and clean and reinstall new fluid. Once done a fair amount of re-alignment is required. This is not a job for a do-it-yourselfer. Most tv shops would charge in the area of $250 to $300 for this repair.

Blue streaks across picture

Can you describe in a little more detail what the symptoms are? Are the streaks thin lines or are they large thick swashes of Blue? Is yur video still visible? Sounds like it may be the blue convergence amps or the resistor tied into the amps. is there anyway you can post a picture of your screen distortion?
