Gauge goes between 3/4 and redline , back and forth .. give it some gas and heat goes cold and gauge get high to redline

Sounds more like air in the system, bleed the system and make sure the radiator cap is good. If it still does that then the system is taking air in and needs to be checked further.

Red spot on screen

Got the same problem with same TV (PT-61-LCX65) that was bought 4 years go in 2006 - first red spot appeared, then few weeks ago got green one nearby. Fixed it for free.
I called Panasonic using the phone number in the manual (1-888-843-9788), selected Service, told that I got the problem which is most probably "a manufacturer's defect" that should be fixed for free - they redirected me to next step, then to next one and in about 20 minutes they arranged me a home-visit by support person (the guy had to drive 2 hours to get here!). Every thing went _very_ smoothly, I am very satisfied with Panasonic's support, it was just one call with few redirections.
The service guy came in two days, unscrewed back panel, connected some kind of box to one of the boards (eeprom programmer?), turned TV onto some channel and let the box do its job for about 5 minutes - then all of a sudden spots disappeared and picture is OK now. The service guy told me that the overall picture quality should have also improved all across the screen, I guess TV sends some kind of feedback to that box for optimization.
It was free service, the service guy mentioned something about law action and that Panasonic is required to fix that for free.

Controller wont wirelessly connect to the xbox to turn it on and take PLayer 1 spot, but when you sync them, its syncs, but still wont take player 1 spot.


It sounds like something happened to the power button/wireless card on the XBOX 360. There is a card on the front of the console that has the power button in it. However it is also the wireless receiver for the controller as well. Now if you have tried another controller and it does the samething then it is most likely the issue is with the power button/wireless card. Now if you are still under warranty then you might give Microsoft a call about getting your XBOX fixed.

Phone numbers
Toll free: (800) 4MY-XBOX
Direct dial: (425) 635-7180

If you are not still under warranty this is actually an easy fix. What you will need the XBOX 360 open tool, torx 8 and torx 10 driver. Once you get the case off then you will unscrew the 3 screws for the power button card and then remove it and replace it with the new one. The connector is kind of like a USB port. They are real easy to get off ebay.

Hope this help,

The device does not turn on and when it does, the screen is fuzzy

1. It could be the power button.
2. It could be a battery problem
3. Loose wire connection that goes from the battery to the board.
4. Firmware issue

I would advise you to contact the manufacturer for repair. It one of these is bad, then it has to be repaired.

Hope this helps.

Wired X-box controler problems

bend the cable and have a game playing so that you know when you hit a dead spot.mark the spot that is makeing it pause.go about 3cm above and below it.take a pair of scissors and cut at the points.strip the wires and twist them together.color goes with each other color green goes with green red goes with red.i used hot glue to keep them from falling apart.just have a little come out of the nozzle then stick the wire in the nozzle.rap it in electrical tape and test it out again for bad spots.if you want to you can take a old camera usb cable and strip both ends ad attach it to the xbox controller to make a xtended cable.if you make the extender cable don't worry about the yellow wire just leabe it out///trust me this works for i have did the usb mod to my xbox and cut of the original connector and put a regular usb on the end.i now use the controller to play halo on my comp. if you got any questions please email me at

Xbox360 during game play screen gets trippy green dots

It is possible that its a bad av cable, however if you are getting rrod, there is an internal hardware problem. If you are still in warranty, call microsoft and get it sent in asap, if you are out of warranty then go pick up a new system. If you have a pro or elite system, you can just reuse your hard drive. So you can buy an arcade version(which will likely have newest mother board JASPER) and just put your hard drive assembly on it. There should be instructions on how to remove the side panel/hard drive on microsofts xbox support page.

Red spot on LCD

1) That red spot means that a pixel is stuck, actually it's very common on LCDs.
2 and 3) It usually occurs for a manufacturing issue.
4) The most of the time it doesn't mean that the whole screen is going to fail, but in my case I would take advantage of the warranty if the laptop is brand new and the warranty is still there.
Good Luck!!!

XB360 Screen colour changes and then disappears

Could possible be your television.

Or maybe your Xbox is overheating.

Try placing your Xbox in a cool spot, direct a fan at it, etc.

Or try getting a new TV or Xbox.
