I bought a 52" Polaroid for like 50$ and the

the white circles are called halos caused by technically a burn-in u either ignore or change the screens particularly the one on the inside for a new one......the halos have made a burn-in on the screen its like taking a spot light and pointing it to a surface for long the light will eventually image its circular image on the surface like a discolouration hence the snow like white balls as u call them....another suspect the optical dome glass maybe dirty u got to open the box screen chamber and use a soft cloth to clean it

Panasonic model TH-42PW4 manufactured 2001. TV cuts out and goes into stand-by. Sometimes only bottom half of display works. Can hit on button and it will come back on, not dead yet. Dennis

Well Dennis I do not want to discourage you , But it is a problem with the power module or the the board

just for kicks have you seen if the remote Power Button is sticking or the TV
I know this sounds crazy but if the remote is sticking it will send an IR signal
to shut off/stand by

Thank You

Red circle and yellow tint in our white

If you have RED color that starts from Center of the Screen,(no red color on sides ) 100 % your light engine is deffective..
In order to solve this issue Replace Light Engine Control Board (also called Driver Board ) attached to light engine.

Good Luck

Sounds like you have burn in. A condition from watching a channel a lot that has a non-moving picture, like ESPNHD usually does. It's kind of the same condition old console style video games would burn the score into the screen.

Blue on the left and right sides of my rca scenium, 65 inch hi def rear projection tv

Well what may have happened is a bad thing, See if you can find some way of displaying a totaly white pix, and have this full size filling the entire screen. If the side bars are still there this means the CRT's are burned and this is a perminate thing, The fix would be to change the CRT's mabe just the green and the red but they still run about $285.00 each. This was cause by having the set run in a format that DOES NOT fill the entire screen

Image retention

most manufactures say not to have a still image on the screen for more than 15% of your viewing time. to fix this you will have to replace the optical assy. i did come across a sony projection where the burn in was actually on the screens themselves. the only thing you can try is to put an all white video pattern on your tv for at least 48 hrs.

Hello, one of possible solutions is to replace capacitors (10uF/50V) on HYPER (PD0246) module. Please ask the tech to check/replace them. If you need more info please advice.

Screen Burn In ?

Nope Not unless you replace the tubes with the burn in them You have to take off ther front screen and look into the lens while tvs on and you will see what tube is burned worse. Sorry!!! but I have heard of folks equilizing the burned tubes by taking a solid color one at a time (red,green and blue) and keeping on only one color on for 4 to 6 hours one at a time and them all on at a time for a solid white and have seen some pretty good results.. Good Luck
