Panasonic PT-51HX42F Alignment problem

Thanks in advance for taking a look at this folks!

According to a posting on craigslist, I'm debating on whether or not to buy the TV. I go to look at it tomorrow. What should or can I do to get this thing all fixed up? Is $50 worth the investment.

This is what he posted on criaglist:

"51 inch Panasonic color TV for sale. HDTV capable. TV works fine, but color needs to be readjusted (repaired). Cash only please and will need to be picked up."


The guy explained it to me like the colors don't line up. I asked him, does it look like you're watching the TV with 3D glasses and he said, that's pretty much exactly it. That was a guess on my part... so ANY advice or direction on either self repair or cost to have a tech repair it would be greatly appreciated.

Looking for quick answers folks - thanks again!

Matt

I have a 51" Panasonic Rear Projection HDTV,


Try disconnecting all of your HDMI cables and plugging the power cord of the TV into another wall outlet. If this resolves the issue, you may have had a small power surge from either your wall outlet or one of your source devices. It is recommended to connect your TV to a surge protector if you haven't done so already.

You need to replace the "Lamp" check Google Shopping for pricing. Enter your TV model # and add the word "Lamp" Make sure you get a Phillips or Panasonic lamp don't get a Chinese knockoff. They don't last!. Hopr this helps.

Sometimes, in the Panasonic projection sets, one of the convergence IC's shorts out and draws so much current that one of the resistors next to it glows red hot. The computer senses the extra current and shuts the set back off. This is quite an easy problem to correct, but the set should be serviced by a qualified tech familiar with panasonic projection sets.
