Should I replace my lamp for my Panasonic 1080i htd t.v. pt-50LC14

Replacing a lamp won't work. There is not even one lamp in your TV. I'm afraid the lightening has done more damage than can be repaired. Even when some tech manages to repair te error, the TV can have the next error in days or weeks.
Try reading something about ESD. Electro Static Discharge and what it does to electronics. Electrostatic discharge

I have a mitsubishi wd 62530 08' model had blue showing through left side of tv working towords the middle, screen looks greenish yellow what is the problem

This is a known issue with these sets.

They use an OPTICAL LIGHT ENGINE which the lamp shines directly into: the blue section (it has blue,red and green sections with lens and baffles) is the first to get hit by the light and its heat.

Commonly it burns that area (blue) first.

This is permanent damage and either the display chip has to be replaced (over 200 part and not a do it yourself replacement) or the entire engine has to be replaced.

Sony and similar brands have the same problem--Sony is fixing a lot of them even if out of warranty for free (class action lawsuit!).

This is a 98% certainty in your case.

You may want to contact Mitsubishi to see what if anything they will do.

You might not get a straight answer from them so GOOGLE the model number and research this on the internet-------

My screen is blue for about 10 seconds the it

hi ham1968n,

As blue screen is usually the softer version of static for some television sets.

Simply, your television isn't getting a signal. Either it's not trying to get the signal from the correct component, or you haven't properly connected the cable to the television. So, try to check if the power cord is securely connected to the outlet.

Also, it won't be best to isolate any electronic devices such as radio, mobile phone, etc. that are placed near your TV in order to eliminate static viewing or any interference.

If the menu that you can see is not the television set up menu, but rather the cable provider's menu then the problem is with the provider.

best regards,

Red lamp light stays light

I doubt that it is the optical assy. it sounds more like a chassis problem either on the DM or the FMT board.

if it is a chassis problem it will cost about $250.00 plus shipping one way to fix the chassis

51mp392h Blue Convergence Problem

Hello rogeuryder,

This is the one thing that even make TV repair persons shudder. You don't really have a convergence problem in the normal sense. The convergence works. What you have is a misaligned convergence situation which any documentation and or book on TV repair will tell you that at this point manual convergence adjustment is needed and the only thing you will have to do is keep trying to adjust the convergence until you get the center aligned, and then work towards the outer edges using both static (Center) and dynamic (outer edges) convergence techniques.

As this may sound it is; Very Very Tedious.

Here is something that may help you:,M1

I have used this book when I use to teach TV repair. I hope you discover what I am tried to convey in my e-mail, this is no longer a question of can you fix a TV? It has become a question of do you have the patience to adjust a TV.

Good fortune in doing this, you will succeed if you just take your time and do static convergence first and then do the dynamic convergence with the manual controls. The procedure will be in the service manual.

I hope this helps

Thank you,

Blue screen with Green Star-burst image in center?

Here's something that might also be useful. After you turn on the set, and get the regular red blinky lights, hold down the Device and Menu buttons together for about 5 seconds.
The Power light will start to flash in a two digit sequence.

For example, 3 flashes, then 7 flashes = 37.

Here are the error codes, and the corresponding problem:

12 = No error detected, check power supply.
32 = Lamp Cover is open.
33 = Air filter cover is open.
34 = Lamp abnormality
36 = Light Engine (DMD or Lamp Fan stopped)
37 = Exhaust or Lamp Ballast Fan stopped
38 = Lamp Temperature High
39 = DMD Temperature High
41 = Short is detected
44 = DVI cable between FMT and Engine disconnected

Sony WEGA 42" LCD TV

Uh Oh! blue screen of death. Your light engine has warped a little from overheating and is distorting the picture.

My suggestion to you is to get on the phone with Sony and start complaining, then keep complaining until they agree to pay for it. Even if it is out of warranty.
You may have to get the problem diagnosed by a pro before they agree to pay for it though.
Hope ya fix it!
