PT 44 LCX 65 Panasonic Red spot upper rt quadrant of screen

This Rear projection LCD tv is about 1 1/2 years old and has developed a red spot about the size of a small pie plate in the upper right quadrant of the screen. It was bought at Circut City and they want to have nothing to do with it whatsoever.

Can you tell me what might be a probable cause and what might be involved in repairing it?

Thanks

    I have the exact same model and likely the exact same problem. About a 3in red circle near the top middle edge of the screen (slightly off to the right side), a blue circle about dead center at the very bottom, and a green circle on the left side edge near the center (slight up from center). The blue and green circles are a bit less obvious but certainly there. Seems like something in the optics/projection/lightengine is out of alignment or needs replaced. Off to see if I bought an extended warranty or not. Mine is about 2.5 years old.

This is a FIRMWARE problem. do not let someone replace any parts in your TV.

I had a repair guy come out with a small computer and he took the back off of my tv, plugged in the computer and the red dot slowly began to disappear.

this was in March 08, no problems since

If you have not already solved this - I have been told by two TV techs that this is due too the light engine going bad, needs to replace, about a $600 fix. I have the same problem and am shopping for a new set. SO, my Panasonic cost me $2,000 for two years of service, not that good in my opinion : (

There are color spots all over screen-pt-61lcx35


This, sadly is getting to be a very common problem with all Projection LCD TV's
Colored Blotches on an LCD Projection TV are usually caused by defects or marks on filters or lenses or one of the LCD panels themselves which are all located in the light engine (or optical block) First confirm that the lamp or main lens is not discolored by removing the lamp (unplug set and let cool before removing!) and inspecting the lamp itself and the lens that it shine onto. The light engine is an expensive part ($600-$1200) to replace and requires major disassembly. Get an estimate -Be sure to vote/rate me if this helped Thanks!

Red spot Panasonic pt44LCX65


Yes this repair is a warranty job - just make sure the tech adjusts the air filter settings if you live in a high elevation otherwise the TV will give you an air filter error and shut down constantly.

Light green and pink spots on my hd tv!!!


Hi--Bought my panasonic pt-52lcx65 on sale for $2200 in 8/05. Replaced the lamp for about $300 in 1/08, just prior to Superbowl. Admittedly, this was to be expected after family members watched lots of tv over 30 months. However, two months later the blue spot emerged in 3/08, and red spot emerged 5/08. Set looks decorated by a Andy Warhol or Van Gogh wannabe. I'm looking for a fix it solution. Dr. Bob Heiliger, Lebanon, OH.
