Question about Panasonic PT-51HX42 51" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Nights seens are WAY to DARK

Did you ever figure out what to fix on the tv.. to clear up the darkness?

Same issue stated above, I opened it.. i dusted it ... cleaned the lens... lined up crosshairs and convergence.. tried every setting, but it just doesn't help with dark scenes.. they are very dark... Dark Night, was painful to watch, and Serenity too.

    So I called panasonic up today, and they confirmed my model doesn't have a g2 / focus splitter, they had me return it to factory settings... and well it still dark, so they had me call a service place, and they said need $90 to come visit and problably need to adjust the grayscale for another $90... can anyone out there save me $200 and educate me on this... Panasonic said all color controls on my model are done via the tv.. I have 1 screen where I have 9 + to align both red and blue too and also one screen for green convergence and red and blue line ups.

    THanks..

Do you know what a g2/focus splitter looks like?
if so and you can get to it, adjust the g2 controls ever so slightly.

    it is usually behind the front speaker/support cover.about 8" x 6" with about wires going in and out. it has 6 adjusting screw slots. 2 for each tube

  • Jim Clark Sep 08, 2009

    the screen before you get to the convergence should have controls picture, brightness,hue or tint & contrast. A new thought ; does your have a color temp adjust, if so select the cool setting.

Why do i have dark smudges on my tv


Usually that is actually dust that has gotten in behind the lcd screen.The dust congregates on top of the tv and eventually falls in through the air grids. Im not to sure how to rectify this without opening the tv up not something I would recommend and can break your warranty.

WS-55807: Images are dark on right side of display, but will go away after 3-4 hours.


you could be on the right track get some freeze spray and go around all the parts to see if you can make it act up, same with heatgun or hair dryer when first turned on heat one area at a time to narrow your problem down

Depending on where you got the TV, a reputable store would offer to exchange or replace it if they couldn't get it fixed to your satisfaction. Otherwise, check with your attorney general for the lemon laws in your state. If you get a choice of a replacement, check out the Toshiba 62HM196 in Decembers issue of Consumer Reports.
