Pt-61lcx65-red spots on screen

My tv has developed two red spots on the screen. They tend to be noticable on dark backgrounds. I am able to operate the tv for any application needed but would like to get the red dots off my screen. Any ideas??

Check with Panasonic. I have the same issue and was originally told that the optic board needed to be replaced ($1700). I waivered on getting it fixed and spending more than the tv is worth. So I now learned that there is a new fix for the bad optic board and Panasonic is repairing it free of charge. Repair is schedueled for next Friday (Feb 1, 08). I'll report back if it was successful. This repair involes an eprom on the optic board. Hope the sheds new light........

I had the same problem red blotch or circle on right side of picture.
It was corrected by an eprom upgrade done 5/5/08 for me free of charge under warranty.This tool should be available to do yourself but I do not think it to be the case.

Good luck

When you trun on my panasonic PT-61LCX65 tv it makes no sounds the light blinks green. and then red and turns off. what is wrong. i have looked at the buble and it looks fine.


Hello,

does the TV bring out sound even as the screen display is dark?

How long have you been using this TV and have you ever changed the lamp/bulb? Problem should be from the TV lamp/bulb.
Have the lamp replaced and hopefully, your screen should be perfect as before.

Let me know if you need directions in replacing the lamp, even though it is very simple replace.

Yours sincerely.

Panasonic pt-61lcx65 green spot


This may be a main board issue if the green spot moves. This is repairable. This may be a panel issue if it does not move and it is present on the panasonic splash screen and if it affects the osd menu.

Panasonic PT-61LCX65 tv has color spots


if you mean color spots size of a dime or so.
  • easiest: it is dust in some step of the projection light path.
  • hardest: the light engine could be damage
if you mean little ones as little dots (a neddle punshing) red and blue but always there:
  • condition call it: pixels always on: light engine is the reason.
as you see the light engine is the main part here, IT is expensive repair. so if you can survive with those little dots do it.
IF it is dust, is good idea asking for and estimate to see if can works.

Red spot on HDTV


This is a LCD projection TV and will need to have the light engine replaced. Hopefully you have a warranty on it or it is still covered by Panasonic.
