Question about Panasonic PT-52DL10 52" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

I have a Panasonic 52lcx35. I contacted Panasonic, and they sent a repairman to "repair" the green spots we were seeing (this was the only problem). He did something, and afterwards, the tv only turns on for about 5 seconds then shuts off. He said replace the lamp and he'll come back and fix the spots if they're still there. We got a new lamp, but cant' even get the tv to stay on long enough to reset the lamp timer. It does appear in that 5 seconds that the spots are gone, but now the tv doesnt work! The Lamp light comes on for about 7 or 8 seconds, followed by the Temp light flashing 3 times (it did not do this before). Any ideas?

Amber weaver,

It sounds like the repairman forgot to reconnect one or more of the fan motors. There are several in these units and if not connected you will get the error you mentioned. Unplug the unit and remove the back. Locate all the fans (this may take some time to make sure you have them all).

There could be 3 or 4. Check each one's wire to make sure they are all connected to wires or an appropriate board. If this is your problem this should solve it.

Thanks for using FixYa and for the great rating!!

Where is the air filter located on panasonic tv PT-52LCX35


Download the manual. It should tell you there. You may need to locate the Repair and maintenance manual, not the user manual (and surely not the quick guide)

I have a green spot in the upper left corner when watching tv . Is there a repair for this problem?


The spots are caused by errors in the eeprom affecting the optical engine data. The fix is easy but it will have to be done by an authorized Panasonic shop. Call your toll free customer line at panasonic to find out, but I'm sure the repair should be covered under warranty regardless of the age of the unit. Thx

Light green and pink spots on my hd tv!!!


For the spots....

I had the same problem, first a blue spot then a green spot showed up. I contacted Panasonic Customer Support. They sent someone out and they fixed the TV for free. They reprogrammed the EEPROM chip in the TV. It is a defect. My TV was 4 years old and out of warranty. They came out last week.

So long as it is not happening by something you have done. It will be fixed free of charge. Call them, it solves the problem.

I have a Panasonic model # PT-44LCX65 TV and have just replaced the lamp, as it was time to do so. A pink dot, that appeared before the old lamp needed replaced, remains on the picture. How is this fixed?


There are a few other threads on this board with the same issue, some say green spots, some say red spots, in my case it was blue/purple spots, but the solution is the same for all of them. Contact Panasonic and tell them that you read online that they are offering a warranty repair for this known "fuzzy spots" issue. They will send out a local repairman who will perform an EEPROM update to one of the computer chips inside of your TV, and viola good as new.
That is what others on this site suggested to me, and I did it and got all repairs covered under warranty by Panasonic even though my TV is 2+ out of the warranty period.
Good luck!

Spots on picture


I had the same problem. Panasonic is kind of a pain about the whole thing. You have to find out who your local Panasonic repair place is, tell them there is a service bulletin and they will get on it. You must be diligent! Do not take no for an answer! If it comes down to it, and the repair shop won't do it for you, then call Panasonic and endure a loooooong wait time. Trust me though...this is the issue. Once the eeprom gets fixed/updated/whatever, the picture looks amazing! Good luck.

Light green and pink spots on my hd tv!!!


(Yes, this is a cross-post from another thread...I just wanted to help everyone on the various threads on this issue...please do not flame me)
Ok...once and for all I will explain the fix (in detail...which has been missing)...

1) Firmware updates do not fix this problem. I had this problem, and updated my firmware to the latest versons without success. Also, cleaning the light engine (or any other part) does not fix this problem. If you cleaned your TV and your problem disappeared, you had a different problem.)
2) This repair requies a special tool from Panasonic. The tool is part number LSUQ0100. It is light grey in color, and is roughly 7" x 5" x 1" in size. It has diagnostic lights on it, and a button to press to start the procedure. This tool is used to reprogram your EEPROM. Again, this is VERY different than flash upgrading your firmware.
3) To repair the TV, the repairman must remove the lower back of the unit and plug the long, 5-wire connector (5 individual wires terminated to one female connector end - reminds you a bit of an old-style CD-ROM audio cable used in computers) into a male recepticle on the light engine.
4) The procedure takes roughly 6-7 minutes to complete. The TV remains on during the procedure (yeah, I was a bit surprised too). About mid-way through the procedure, your colored ball-shaped blotches will just disappear....no on-screen progress bar, no bright flash, the spots just disappear in the blink of the eye.
5) CALL PANASONIC!!! They are standing behind these TVs, and are covering these in-home repairs free-of-charge - EVEN IF YOUR TV IS OUT OF WARRANTY. Mine was out of warranty by over a year. The Panasonic rep was very kind, but did explain that this is the only repair for these TVs that they will cover out of warranty, as it was a defect in the manufacture of the unit - all other repairs are at the expense of the customer.

Good luck to all - I hope this helps some of you!
Cheers to Panasonic for standing behind their products like this....you don't see that very much these days!

Thanks,
Chris
