    My Panasonic PT-44LCX65 is having color problems as well. Started off with a blue area near the bottom middle of the screen. Now there is a green area on the right side a little over halfway down.

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?

Panasonic DLP TV Bulbs

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.

While pressing the VOL- button on the projection display, hold down the number 0 button on the remote control at the same time for more than 5 seconds.

A continuous flashing red light with the word LAMP on it would definitely mean you're going to need to spend a few bucks on a new lamp....or for a few more, upgrade to a TV from this century that doesn't require lamp changes :)

First- Did you replace just the lamp itself. If you did, you must make sure the lamp is flush into the lamp cage.

Second - Make sure the new one (if you bought it complete with cage) is flush also.
If you didn't have this problem before and have it now then retrace your steps.

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.
