The problem could be the convergence system. You need to contact an authorized repair shop to replace the convergence IC. It should not cost you too much.

Have a great day!

My tv wont start up. I had the color wheel replaced 11 months ago at a cost of $285. the tech that did the work says he only warrants his work for 90 days. How much is the color wheel and is it...

The PT5492S doesnt have a color wheel since that model has three CRTs instaed of the single lamp. Double check the model number and I will assist with the issue.

When I leave my TV plugged in too long the color goes out and everything is red. What causes this?

Depending on the age of the TV it sounds like its over heating after being on for a certain amount of time. If you can hear the tv start to make different noises/get louder over time then it would confirm the over heating. If it is over heating you can attempt to remove the back panel, or place the tv in a more ventilated area, or even place a little fan blowing into the back of it. A lot of large TV's can have over heating problems due to the large screen.

Hope this helped.
