Have power but color is very dark. I've done research and a lot are saying to replace the bulb, but I'd like to test it if possible before buying a new one and its still dark like before. Any help wil


its the bulb. sometimes over time the bulb gathers dust, the bulb is running at extensive temperatures and debris begin to stain the lens. this is more common with pet owners or smokers. you could check the color wheel but i doubt any color loss is due to that being dirty or stained, reason i state that is because when my crt samsung gets dull its because the lenses on the crts red green and blue are dirty with dust debris.

I have a philps 51pw9303 digital HDTV monitor. The picture has gotten very dull and dark. The colors are very dim and dull. Is this a bulb problem?


Check the convergence settings if necessary, try to check the bulb cause sometimes is getting weak. If you want to replace the bulb don't forget to reset the lamp hour meter. Let me know your feedback. Good day and God bless. Hope it helps.

Hi,

The most common cause of Panasonic Rear Projection LCD TVs not starting is bulb failure. The PT-60LC13 users manual gives some help in translating the LEDs on the front of the TV.

If the TV worked normally for a period of time (months or years) and won't start, the most likely cause is bulb failure. There is no way to measure the bulb, sometimes the bulb is visibly damaged when it fails. Remove the Lamp Assembly and look at the bulb.

If there was an On-Screen Lamp Replace warning and TV won't start, bulb has failed.

The first step with all Panasonic Rear Projection TV "No Picture" problems is bulb replacement. If that does not remedy the problem, get a technician, there are no user serviceable parts. Guessing if the ballast, power supply, controller board or optical engine is faulty is not practical.

The Panasonic Lamp Gallery shows all Panasonic models and Lamp Numbers. There is also a link to Panasonic DIY bulb and lamp replacement.

ll projection TV sets have two very common problems. One is convergence ( 3D/Warped video) the other is CRT fluid ( Dull Video). Here are more details and solutions for both.

Common Problem #1) Convergence has gone out

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....

  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some pics of convergence problems.

Common Problem #2) CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

My tv the screen is dull the color is orange what is going on??? the tint wont fix the problem


Sadly, it is because your bulbs are going out. You will have to A) replace the bulb or B) replace the projector it self!

Picture is very dark on all channels. Settings have not changed. Do I need to replace the bulb?


You may need a drive PCB. This PCB can cause the picture to be too bright, no brightness or picture too dark, intermittantly or permanantly. Do check the bulb though and see if it is foggy looking or dull especially if it has not been changed. Thanks for using Fixya.

I'm not sure if my answer will help much, but it is free. My experieence with this site is that without paying for premium service, you won't get much help.
I had a similar problem with a different model Panasonic projection set.I got no answer on this site, but I did from an outside repairman.
Turn your color all the way down. If it looks black and white it is probably not a bulb problem. If you see a tint (blue, green, red) over the screen, it probably is a weak bulb.
The entire bottom front of my model was held on by velco and could be pulled off.
Behind this was a removable black panel. Behind this were adjustment screws for the three bulbs. This will probably only help temporarily if the bulbs continue to weaken, but it might buy you some time as the replacement bulbs are quite expensive. Good Luck
