Sound ok, video bad...left half of screen has a darkened circle. The circle is brownish in color. You can see the tv reception through this brownish circle but reception is not clear at all. I checked the OEM lamp and it is clear and functioning.

    What is an LCD Pannel (is that the whole screen) and, like I asked in my original question, is it economically feasable to replace or fix it?

    Thanks

HI, ok, This repair will be very expensive. The Light engine is damaged at this point and, it will, eventually, fail soon. This inevitable failure of the engine will render this unit useless. The actual part price is enormous. it will cost 2,956.00 to replace this part. That is the actual part price. the labor is extra.

I would cut my loss and, purchase a new set in this case. the repair is not worth it in my opinion.

    HI again. i just thought you should know that the actual replacement Light engine is no longer available for purchase. it has been discontinued. I have check with our suppliers online and, this particular model of light engine is not available.

    This will make the decision easier for you. This is basically not a repairable unit at this time. The part you will need ot repair this unit has been discontinued.

I have a Panasonic TH-42PZ77U TV and the video is messed up. The left half of the screen is inverting colors and has a static like color mess moving/jumping around that half of the screen. Any suggestions...


More than likely you have a bad X or Y board. The only solution to that problem is to replace the defective parts. Call the manufacturer and see if your TV is still under warranty. Most of the time if it is under warranty they can dispatch a technician to repair the TV. If not, and you have to fix it yourself you are better off replacing the TV as the cost of repair could easily exceed three hundred dollars.

You still need to get an audio Left and right connected from the video source.And for the digital reception from the antenna source is not possible because your unit is not equipped with a digital tuner(it is NTSC or analog reception only)it needs an add on digital tuner that has an hdmi output.Newer ones now are equipped with digital tuners.

On left half of the screen [ KP51WS510 ], a redish shadow showing


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung, JVC, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Akai, Pioneer, Hitachi, Zenith, and others. You can get a convergenece repair kit wiith instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms
  • Screen Looks 3-D
  • Colors wont align
  • Screen may look distorted or warped
  • No Audio/Video - makes a chirping sound.
Problem #2

Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Color is off


Go to MENU on your original remote. Select VIDEO and adjust color.

If you are using certain cables (3 separate cables for video signal), you may have a bad connection on one. Try plugging your cable tv cable directly into the TV to see if it improves.

Last option is a rare color board issue in the TV that needs to be fixed (or replace the TV)

Horizontal color line across the screen


Most likely a bad Vertical IC or bad connections on the vertical IC. don't continue trying it on. If you have a bad connection it could do more damage. You also could damage the CRT ( picture tube ). If you remove the cover and look at the bottom side of the PC bord with a good magnifiing glass you may see what looks like rings around the leads comming from the Vertical IC. The Vertical IC is mounted on a heat sink usually towards the front of the set looking from back. If you do see the rings around the leads try reheating with a solder iron. If this dosen't fix you most likely need a new IC.
