Question about Panasonic TH-46PZ800U Plasma TV

1 Answer

I have a 46" Panasonic Flat screen 2008' , Model # TH-46PZ80U, the sound works fine but the Picture is red to purplish haze with a hint of the picture in the background. I must admit I am at my witts end , I have spoken to several experts there, but it appears that I keep getting advice on rear projection TVs. I was told that I had a convergence problem and was sent an email with pictures of where I would find these stk392-110 resistors, but to no avail, I dont see any chips remotely similar to those described before. I have ordered the stk392-150 to replace these, if this is correct. Please give me some pointers and are we talking about the same TV?

    Sir Thanks for your reply, I may not have explained my situation properly, I dont have a picture under a picture I dont think, Before this happened, The red to Purplish hue would be intermittent, until yesterday it just stayed that way. Its like there is a red to purple haze or noise. Sometimes when turning it on, you think its going to light up properly for a second but it doesn't.

Okay if you got a picture under a picture in a background image that mean this TV has once expeience what all TV owners fear and that is Burn in. You have a static image that will not go away that means sometihng got burn in that happends on monitors as well as these have a image and its fixable...

What these other guys say is not correct information.. Read this information and good luck please do accept this advice as I worked hard to get the information for you.

Panasonic Viera PC-to-TV Via VGA has Purple Tint

Purple Panasonic PC>TV Problem:
The VGA cable uses three primary color RGB channels.
Red, Green, and Blue.
The picture is made up of pixels or dots arranged in a grid along the "X" horizontal axis and "Y" vertical axis.
The computer mixes the intensity of each color channel to create a unique color per pixel.
All RGB at 100% creates white.
R+G creates yellow.
R+B creates magenta, ie purplish.
G+B creates cyan.
So a purplish tint sounds as if your Green wire has no signal, which may indicate a faulty VGA cable or VGA socket.
Put another way, (R+G+B)-G=R+B=magenta.
So try another VGA cable, spray all socket pins with "Servisol " or similar contact cleaner.
All 0%=Black; All 50%=Grey; All 100%=White.

Panasonic Viera 46" plasma~no sound, no picture

I would use the warranty at Bestbuy at that point. Opening up the TV would most likely void the warranty.

No picture in HDMI

After reading tips on this site I did a manual reboot of my cable box. Sure enough, that had been the problem. I'm going to keep a watch on it from now on; if it happens again, I'll call for a new DVR/cable box. Thanks for all the info on this site!

Won't turn on

Once you take the back off there is a glass gma fuse withing a few inches of where the power cord plugs into the board at. This should be a 6.3 or 6.5 gma fuse. Very common to blow in your model because the degausing coil is a little to big for it. There are other reasons for it to blow but 99% of the time you change change it and the set will work again. Let me know if you need more help or info!
