Question about Projection Televisions
We have a blue line across the bottom of our screen how do we fix it?
Posted on Dec 05, 2010
Go INTO the customer menu and select CONVERGENCE--what you are looking for is will blue or red not move in some direction?
If you find in your case blue OR red is wacked and will not adjust let me know--I can post here start to finish instructions for this repair on this set.....
You only need to be able to know how to solder and get at the chips--you can buy a pair of the chips on Ebay for less than 14 dollars plus shipping.
If you cannot do it yourself--let me know and I will give you options.

Testimonial: "Quick feedback with helpful questions."
SOURCE: Panasonic HDTV 1080i Lamp out
If the lamp is actually out - replace it - if the lamp is still working just reset the lamp hours - at 10,000 hours it automatically says that but it is just the lamp time needing a reset.

I would check the lamp first. These are the most common failures and can be replaced by the consumer with step by step directions in the user's manual. Check the lamp by removing the lamp door and checking the bulb. If you see either a shattered or cloudy bulb, then you need to get a new lamp.

The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.
These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.
When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get a convergenece repair kit with instructions from the links below.
Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...
