The eeprom on this unit becomes corrupt and Panasonic has a jig that hooks up to the unit and corrects the problem. This problem has an extended warranty and you should call Panasonic and have them refer you to a service center to correct the problem and Panasonic will pay for this.

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.

Red, green, blue spots rear projection tv


Contact Panasonic to have this corrected. They will pay for it even if it is out of warranty. I contacted a local repair shop first and they wanted $255 to fix it in their shop. I called panasonic and they scheduled the same shop to come to my home and fix it in about 20 minutes. Way to go Panasonic.

I have a Panasonic model # PT-44LCX65 TV and have just replaced the lamp, as it was time to do so. A pink dot, that appeared before the old lamp needed replaced, remains on the picture. How is this fixed?


There are a few other threads on this board with the same issue, some say green spots, some say red spots, in my case it was blue/purple spots, but the solution is the same for all of them. Contact Panasonic and tell them that you read online that they are offering a warranty repair for this known "fuzzy spots" issue. They will send out a local repairman who will perform an EEPROM update to one of the computer chips inside of your TV, and viola good as new.
That is what others on this site suggested to me, and I did it and got all repairs covered under warranty by Panasonic even though my TV is 2+ out of the warranty period.
Good luck!

Pt-52lcx65 52 in.


call panasonic customer service....open a claim....problem is most likely that the eprom needs to be reflashed.....i contacted them several weeks ago, told them my problem which was 5 baseball sized colored spots, 1 red, 2 blue and 2 green. they had me perform a couple of tests using a dvd. when i reported the results they set up a service call with a local authorized repair shop. results were amazing. reflashing the eprom took about 4-6 minutes. in addition my brilliant color returned to the set as well as another problem of neon images going away. this was paid for by panasonic. my set was 2 years over warranty. panasonic has issued a service bulletin on this and are backing up these units.

hope this helps, i am quite satisfied with what was done.

Light green and pink spots on my hd tv!!!


Hi--Bought my panasonic pt-52lcx65 on sale for $2200 in 8/05. Replaced the lamp for about $300 in 1/08, just prior to Superbowl. Admittedly, this was to be expected after family members watched lots of tv over 30 months. However, two months later the blue spot emerged in 3/08, and red spot emerged 5/08. Set looks decorated by a Andy Warhol or Van Gogh wannabe. I'm looking for a fix it solution. Dr. Bob Heiliger, Lebanon, OH.

Red spot Panasonic pt44LCX65


Thanks to this website, I got our TV fixed. YEAH!!!!!!!

Before I found this website, I called Panasonic and they told me they couldn't help me and to call my local service tech. So I did and they were going to charge me $250.00 to fix it and I had to take my TV to them. Well months went by because I just couln't afford it. Two more spots appeared and I needed this problem fixed. I turned to the internet for help and found this WONDERFUL site.

I then took all the information and called Panansonic again. This time I was on the phone well over an hour. I was very persistant and had all the facts about this being a manufacturer defect and that they were well aware of the problem and they had fixed others for free. I expected the same same service and wanted it fixed.

They switched me from department to department and finally with my persistant, I got them to agree to come out in fix it for free. They came out this with 3 days and my TV is fixed.

By the way my TV was out of warranty. I bought in 2005.

THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU FOR THE PEOPLE OUT THERE WHO HAVE EXPERIENCED PROBLEMS AND ARE WILLING TO HELP OTHERS!

What are defect pixels?


Ocassionally images from digital cameras will have "defect" pixels. These pixels may appear in the final photograph as bright white, green or red spots that are out of place when compared to the rest of the image. Sometimes people call these spots "hot" or "dead" pixels. Usually these pixels, and other types of "digital noise" appear in the darker or underexposed parts of images; additionally, images taken at longer exposure times are much more likely to have this issue. Many Nikon cameras have a "noise reduction" or "NR" process that fixes these problem areas. When NR is activated and image exposure times drop below 1/4 of a second the NR automatically processes the images as they are saved. This Noise Reduction feature is sometimes called "Night Portrait" or "Night Landscape" Scene Modes. If these spots are seen on images photographed under normal conditions (bright light with exposure times shorter than 1/4 second) then the camera may need to be sent in to a Nikon Service Center for repair. Notice the green defect pixel near the center of this image.
