Question about Panasonic PT-61LCX65 61" Rear 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.
