Most likely the lamp will correct this issue.

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.

Vertical lines across screen on my panasonic tv PT-61LCX65


Try setting a portable fan aimed toward the cooling vents on the back of the set. If this eliminates or reduces the occurance of the lines, this means a circuit that controls the off/on of individual pixels has developed a thermal problem. This circuit is ordinarily loacted on the main circuit board and is likely to degrade further. You might inquire at the Panasonic service center if they have an exchange program in place and they will probably be able to confirm my suspicions.

LAMP HOURS


Sure.

Make sure the set is off but plugged in. Hold the "volume down" button on the set while pressing the "tv/video" button on the remote (at the same time) over 5 seconds.

This is a "customer" service mode where you can't screw up the set but can get some basic info on your unit. You cannot change any internal info in this mode.

Hit the "power" button when you're done and leave set off for 10 seconds before turning back on to reset your tv.

Good luck, Mark
