Red spot Panasonic pt44LCX65

My parents have a 44" Panasonic projection HD LCD that has developed a red spot in the middle to right side of it. Anyone else having this problem. I am afraid that this is a light engine problem and nobody seems to want to help them. The place they bought it from refers them to Panasonic who refers them to a repair store who charge hundreds just to diagnose.

They have only had this tv for about 2 years. I had a red splotch show up this morning. Changed the light bulb with the same issue present. I reviewed all the info on this website about it being an eeprom corruption and called panasonic. After about 10 minutes of info and troubleshooting with a dvd player to make sure it was the tv, they connected me to the next level of tech support. That person verified my info and conference called the repair desk to set up the appointment to fix the problem. All of this is going to be free of charge. TV is about 3.5 years old. While I have not had it fixed quite yet, I am impressed by panasonic, but am equally thankful for the info on this site that gave me the nmowledge to speak smartly to them.

    For those who check this...the repair company came out, attached a device to the back and turned it and the tv back on. After about 5-7 minutes, the spots just faded out. They said it was an issue with the buffers being filled and needing to be reset/emptied. regardless it worked.

Yes this repair is a warranty job - just make sure the tech adjusts the air filter settings if you live in a high elevation otherwise the TV will give you an air filter error and shut down constantly.

Light green and pink spots on my hd tv!!!


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.

Red spot Panasonic pt44LCX65


Thanks to this website, I got our TV fixed. YEAH!!!!!!!

Before I found this website, I called Panasonic and they told me they couldn't help me and to call my local service tech. So I did and they were going to charge me $250.00 to fix it and I had to take my TV to them. Well months went by because I just couln't afford it. Two more spots appeared and I needed this problem fixed. I turned to the internet for help and found this WONDERFUL site.

I then took all the information and called Panansonic again. This time I was on the phone well over an hour. I was very persistant and had all the facts about this being a manufacturer defect and that they were well aware of the problem and they had fixed others for free. I expected the same same service and wanted it fixed.

They switched me from department to department and finally with my persistant, I got them to agree to come out in fix it for free. They came out this with 3 days and my TV is fixed.

By the way my TV was out of warranty. I bought in 2005.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU FOR THE PEOPLE OUT THERE WHO HAVE EXPERIENCED PROBLEMS AND ARE WILLING TO HELP OTHERS!

Panasonic has a fix for this problem. No need to replace the light engine. Just have a service tech do an "eprom upgrade" - Fixed mine.

PT 44 LCX 65 Panasonic Red spot upper rt quadrant of screen


This is a FIRMWARE problem. do not let someone replace any parts in your TV.

I had a repair guy come out with a small computer and he took the back off of my tv, plugged in the computer and the red dot slowly began to disappear.

this was in March 08, no problems since

Red spot on HDTV


This is a LCD projection TV and will need to have the light engine replaced. Hopefully you have a warranty on it or it is still covered by Panasonic.
