Question about Panasonic PT-47WX49 47" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Front glass? I recently purchased a used 50" plasma. I understand the risk in purchasing used but i cant' afford anything else. My concern is with a blemish in the middle of the screen about 8" long and 1/2" wide. When i checked out the tv I thought it was a smudge mark that could be wiped off and it was unnoticeable when the tv was on. Upon close inspection it appears to be on the inside of the front glass. Any idea what this is? If i need to replace the front glass is there a reason for the $400 price tag on a replacement? Thanks

Have a toshiba 50" Plasma TV purchased 11/06.

I do not think there is an issue with the TV. I do not think that the station themselves broadcast the Closed Captioning.

Whats the value of a mitsubishi 48 inch tv, model is ws-48511?

this is mostly in the eye of the one who thinks they need one!

12 months of age 60% its purchase price if it is in good working condition
24 months 50%
36 months 25-30%
48 months 10-15%

Beyond that it will be heritage listed and bring twice the price of its original outlay and be sought after by Mitsubishi who will be amazed that they actually made a TV that lasted that long. The average life of amy Mitsubishi and quite a few other modern Tv's is about 3 years before they require huge repair expenditure.
Often better to update wvery 12 months if you can afford it as they are not built to last like the old CRT's that will still deliver on a set top box long after plasmas and rear projections have been retired.

please rate my help++++Thanks for using FIXYA

Need LCD lamp for panasonic PT-50LC13

sure - worst thing that happens is that the lamp could blow up if you don't have an exact match. Get something in about the same lumen outout and you absolutely can re-use the module. There used to be a place called Zeeco sales, Don Zeiller in FW texas you could get them from. You may also search for used lamps on ebay. Keep your fingers off of the glass.

Sony KDS-R50XBR1

Here's the best way to get Sony's attention and possible help.

Send an old fashioned letter to Sony outlining the problems and your concerns regarding your TV. Make sure to prominently indicate that a copy of the letter is being sent to the complaint division at the attorney general's office in your state. After having to settle claims surrounding their optical block (light engine) issues they now understand that failure to address their customer's complaints may result in another judgement against them.

Good luck and give 'em hell!

Look in your owners manual and contact Samsung and complain about the Repairs. They can't do anything about the promotion deal, but they should check into the repair issue for you. Especially if the Company servicing the TV is an Authorised Samsung Center.

Hope that helps...
