Question about Panasonic PT-47WX49 47" Rear Projection Television
I have lost my owners manual due to Hurricane Katrina. The best way to describe my problem is it seems my one of the light bulbs went out in the TV. The picture is just not bright enough. On scenes that are dark the TV is really really dark. Can you change or replace a light bulb in this TV?
I'm not sure if my answer will help much, but it is free. My experieence with this site is that without paying for premium service, you won't get much help.
I had a similar problem with a different model Panasonic projection set.I got no answer on this site, but I did from an outside repairman.
Turn your color all the way down. If it looks black and white it is probably not a bulb problem. If you see a tint (blue, green, red) over the screen, it probably is a weak bulb.
The entire bottom front of my model was held on by velco and could be pulled off.
Behind this was a removable black panel. Behind this were adjustment screws for the three bulbs. This will probably only help temporarily if the bulbs continue to weaken, but it might buy you some time as the replacement bulbs are quite expensive. Good Luck
