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!

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.

Spindle replacement

call round to junkyards, or get one on eBay or craigslist. lots of folks around who take cars apart and sell them piece by piece to supplement their disability checks. one should fit anywhere up to a 99SL or SW series. obviously the newer the better.

you are going to need some serious tools and mechanical knowledge to replace this, and it will need an alignment afterward. so i would suggest having a shop with an alignment rack do the work.
