Question about Panasonic PT-52LCX65 44" HDTV

1 Answer

We started seeing some red, blue and green dots appear here and there, so we decided to replace the lamp. Now the TV has several blue green and red dots all over it, and white has turned yellow. Mainly when the program has a 'reflection' ...like on a boating scene the water is yellow, or when the sun reflects off a car. On some shows it changes the color completely and we can see the pixels shifting. What can we do?

AFTER REPLACING THE LAMP, I HAD TO PUT THE COVER ON AND NOW THE SCREEN HAS TINY BLUE DOTS AND THE POWER LIGHT STAYS GREEN. THE LAMP LIGH IS NOW ON AND RED


The blue dots are due to a failing optic block. The lamp is only making them show up more obviously. The TV is probably failing as the blue dots will get larger and eventually take over the screen.

My zenith tv model SR2075DT had this continous Red tint. I have tried fixing it through settings and NOTHING works. Someone please help me


It is likey the blue lamp has failed.
They are relatively cheap to replace and you can buy them online.
There are dangerous voltages inside the cabinet.
If you can see the lamps through any of the vents, you may be able to see the lamps. Check to see if blue or green are not working. There should be three separate lamps. Red Blue & Green. This is assuming the colour is like that on all sources.
If it is only on one source, check the component cables in the back of the TV.

Yellow to green tent screen to hitachi tv 42v715


You have some reason to believe it will not?

Some history for you---several years ago Hitachi began along with others to have issues with the optical light engines.

With a mix of high heat from a lamp into the engine (it has a blue,green and red section inside---guess what? BLUE is the first place that gets the heat and is damaged----minus blue and you have red and green which equals YELLOW.

Several of their sets made about 6 years ago (research 50v500) had exact same issues and were settled in a class action lawsuit.

The issue can but does not always affect the entire screen.

The question really is: This set really worth the part and labor cost for the repair?

On that earlier model I replaced under warranty over 40 of the engines. Also Sony and others have had similar issues some of which were settled in court.

HOPE IT WORKS OUT FOR YOU.

A continuous flashing red light with the word LAMP on it would definitely mean you're going to need to spend a few bucks on a new lamp....or for a few more, upgrade to a TV from this century that doesn't require lamp changes :)

Sony TVs has an Optical Block issue. If there is an issue with the optical block, then there will be green, blue patches or tint on the TV display. Try resetting the TV to the factory settings and try Power resetting the TV. Turn Off the TV and remove the power plug from the wall outlet for 1 minute and reconnect it and check the operation. If the issue still persists, then TV may require service. You can contact the Customer relations team and check for the available options. Sony had repaired free of cost for such issues. Hence, contact the customer relations.

Blue dots in KDF-60WF655


Yes, your optical block ( light engine) is bad. Heat generated by the lamp circuit with its poorly designed ventilation system, cause the LCD panels inside the light engine to fail. They are the size of a postage stamp. There are 3 LCDs, for red, blue, and green. The heat causes them to warp and de-laminate.

Sony has systematically downed played the scope of this issue. It appears however that virtually every LCD projector they make can develop damage in the light engine which is extremely expensive to fix.

I suggest contacting Sony and your state's attorney general's office of consumer complaints asking for action on this.
