Question about Panasonic PT-61LCX65 61" Rear Projection HDTV

2 Answers

Green spot / glow in center left side of Panasonic PT-61LCX65 LCD Projection HDTV

Our TV is a little over 2 years old. Recently we reached the lamp hours so the hours indicator message was showing on the TV but we were waiting for it to actually go before replacing it. A green glow appeared one day. It is approximately 8 inches to the left and 12 inches above the center of the TV and about 3-4 inches wide. There are also some 'shadows' that appear in shading areas during certain scenes (more with people scenes than cartoons). I have replaced the lamp and reset but the problem still exists. Any solution would be greatly appreciated.

I have this problem today and called panasonic. I told them it was the eeprom issue. We troubleshot and then they sent me to the next level of tech support. They set up an appointment to have someone come out to repair the known issue. My tv is well over 3 years old and they never even asked........just said we will fix this.
Call them and see what happens

This unit has a chonic issue with corruption in the eeprom that causes spots and shadows. The correction is to find some service center that has the jig to hook up to your unit and correct the eeprom. This is an extended warranty issue with Panasonic and if you contact them they should be able to refer you a qualifed service center and Panasonic will pay.

Blue and Pink spot on my Panasonic Projection LCD


Panasonic didn't release a 61" LC13, are you sure that you dont have a PT-61LCX65, 35 or 15. If your model ends with a 5, call 1-800-211-PANA (7262) to schedule service, they have a fix fuzzy the fuzzy colored spots they are covering under warranty.

Panasonic PT-61LCX65 tv has color spots


if you mean color spots size of a dime or so.
  • easiest: it is dust in some step of the projection light path.
  • hardest: the light engine could be damage
if you mean little ones as little dots (a neddle punshing) red and blue but always there:
  • condition call it: pixels always on: light engine is the reason.
as you see the light engine is the main part here, IT is expensive repair. so if you can survive with those little dots do it.
IF it is dust, is good idea asking for and estimate to see if can works.

Panasonic PT-61LCX65 61 -- Neon Yellow Lines


I called Panasonic and they are sending a repairman. My TV is 3 years old. They said they'd cover the repair as a one-time in-warranty even though it is out of warranty because they've been having problems with this model. Don't do like me and try to live with the problem.

Good luck to all that have this problem.

Spots on picture


I had the same problem. Panasonic is kind of a pain about the whole thing. You have to find out who your local Panasonic repair place is, tell them there is a service bulletin and they will get on it. You must be diligent! Do not take no for an answer! If it comes down to it, and the repair shop won't do it for you, then call Panasonic and endure a loooooong wait time. Trust me though...this is the issue. Once the eeprom gets fixed/updated/whatever, the picture looks amazing! Good luck.
