Tv is two years old we have full warrenty it will not even turn on now,have had a repair man out,and told it is the lamp,this is the only thing not coverd in the warrenty.And will cost approx.£350 ,can you tell me if this is a common fault and do you know of any one else who have had this problem.
I do not have this TV but I have a LG rear projection LCD - RT52SZ30RB and it has blue patches across the screen. I have had it for 3-4 years but the blue patches have been there for 1-2 years. It seems to be common with this model but no solution posted yet. Could it be lens alignment or dust on the lens? Any help would be great

Shudown,tv make alots of clicking noises too?Yes,mean the tv the Ballast board that help to ignite the tv projection lamp it is dead.How long the tv projection lamp been inside this tv already too?Like 2 years already?Change the tv projection lamp too.
chance are your problem is the projector lamp and not the mirrors. if the tv is 4 years old or more buy a new lamp, they are easy to change. as far as the mirrors go, you have take the back off to get at the mirror but its a lot of work try the lamp first.
The red light indicates the lamp is burned out. A new one is $100 to $200.
Depending on whether you use the old housing or want to order the lamp and housing together. There are lots of sources for this lamp online.
Once the lamp is replaced, it will be good as new and the lamp will last aprox. 8000 hours.
The first time my lamp needed replaced, the red light came on as well. This time my tv did the same thing, but after talking to my tv repair man he thought it was the lamp. He said that if you use your tv often then the lamp probaly needs to be changed after two or three years. I replacedmy bulb and it corrected the problem and I MUCH BETTER PICTURE.
Have you checked the lamps. Rear projection TV's have bright lamps, that can burn out. If you have had this TV for a while, that is the first thing I would check. If you still have to manual, it should tell you how to check the lamps and which ones you need to order.
These should be special lamps only Panasonic sells. Therefore they might cost a few bills.
I talked to an Akai certified tech who told me the problem is a bad convergence module. The part alone is $400. Fortunately, I purchased mine from Costco 3 years ago. Costco has a 100% guarantee policy that I was not aware of. I called them asking if I had an extended warrenty and they gave me the full purchase price as a refund ! If any Costco purchasers are experiencing this problem and you purchased the TV prior to March 2007 (when Costco changed their policy), you may be able to take it back and get the full amount you paid for it. I turned around and purchased a new, larger Panasonic for under $150 more. It has a 5 year warrenty.
The Akai service number (to reach a certified repair place) is 1-800-726-4405. The Akai people are very good and can direct you to options. For those near Pittsburgh PA, Contact Rosewood Audio in New Castle 724 654-3023.
I just took my Mitsubishi WS-65315 65" in to be repaired for the same problem and was told that it needed a new main circuit board part number 930b899005 as was told they wanted to charge me $1100.00. So I told them not to do the repair and picked up my tv and found that same part at Sears parts for only $225.00. Some of these TV repair places are theifs.
