Re: red, purple and green dot

Its the light engine. Had a tehnician come and look at mine and was told it would have cost over $600 if I didnt have the warranty. Panasonic called 2 weeks later and told me that parts are no longer available for my model and are upgrading me to a 50 inch tv.(from 44 inch)

The blue dots are due to a failing optic block. The lamp is only making them show up more obviously. The TV is probably failing as the blue dots will get larger and eventually take over the screen.

Trying to replace lamp in HDTV and having trouble. Does not function correctly after putting in new bulb. Boots up and then visuals go black and the green power light keeps flashing. Help?

Make sure its an original Osram or Philips bulb inside the housing. If its a cheap lamp it will act this way. If it is an original lamp, then you may have a power supply issue. It shouldn't affect your TV but you may want to try resetting the lamp timer by following the instructions that came with the lamp.

Dots on screen

you have to get a repair guy to come out. When this happened to me the guy changed the bulb (which didn't work) and the actual internal projector (which did work). But he had also said there was a software fix for this problem that is considerably cheaper.

Green dot in middile of my screen

The green dot in the center sounds like a burn mark on one or more of the picture tubes inside the set, and the curved lines are telling me that you have a problem in the convergence circuits. The blue haze around everything white tells me you either have a lot of dust build up on the lens over the CRTs, or your picture tube(s) are very weak. If this set is over about 12 years old, I would replace it. I doubt if you will be able to get the green dot out of the picture without changing the tubes which would be VERY expensive.
