What you possibly have is dust on the green or blue lcd panel inside the optics assembly. Since the red is showing through the dust is not as bad on that lcd panel. I suggest having a service center attempt to clean the optics assembly, although replacement of the assembly may be required, some of the light engines are sealed systems.

Problem with Panasonic PT-53WX54J 53 in. Rear Projection HDTV Television - Green Screen


You may have a component failing in the red drive stage possibly the blue as well or even the quadrature stage. A can of cold shot should help narrow the search considerably. It is also possible the red and blue projection tubes are nearing the end of their service life as well. If you have the means to test the tubes themselves, check the red and blue tubes for gas.

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.

My panasonic has a softball size red spot on it, and the lamp light indicator is blinking. how can I fix this myself


It is software, ans is replaced for free even if it is out of warrantee.
Don't rush to replace the lamp, it is probably OK.

Red blotches


This is phosphur burn and the only solution to this issue is to replace the CRTs(picture tubes) The cost of this, as you can imagine, is quite high and probably not worth doing.

Hello, please check the IC7102 (24LC64). This is eeprom that contains the convergence data. Please ask the Panasonic dealer if they can supply a replacement IC with the data for your HD. If you need more info please advice. Arpi
