Question about Panasonic PT-51G43 51 in. Rear Projection Television

Blurry Line at Top of Screen

Got the TV used for a decent price and it's been a good TV over the last year or so. Lately, (on and off, but more on than off) there is a line going across the top of the screen about 3-4 inches thick and the entire length of the screen that distorts the picture.

It happened before when I first got the TV, went away - but now it's back. I plan on getting it fixed by a professional, but would like to know if the possible solution would be worth it or should I just buy another TV. A couple hundred bucks would be OK.

Unplugged the TV overnight and it seems to have gone back to normal.

Recheck the tv projection lamp installation?Recheck the lamp door latch,see if it is proper closed and tightly closed of the lamp door?Hear any clicking noises,when the tv projection lamp tries to ignite up.If hearing constance clicking?Mean the tv board that call the Ballast board it is also dead,this Ballast board only job are to ignite the tv projection lamp only.Ballast board must have be replaced.If the tv have a colors wheel is it dead or damage and broken require changing,u will hear major humming,motor or grinding sound noises and alot of times the tv pictures flashes multiples colors on the tv screen or the tv pictures will have a black&white flashes of a background of white light within the tv pictures background.Selling defective tvs almost impossible to sell it for a decent or a good priced or it at all.If this tv u have less than 5 years old,tv it is still have alot of it life ahead of it,tv tube picture screen panel,will last u atleast another 10 years and have to be 8 hours tv whatching every day to dies this faster or could be last to 15 years,if tv less hours of watching every day.Should get priced quotes from many tvs repair shops and get it fixed max prices about $400-$500 dollars.New tv same model and sized or difference models too will cost u like $1,200-$1,500 dollars.

Blurry screen


I have researched your set. There isn't a date of production that is available so your guesstimate of 11 years old is about where I would place it.

For your specific problem (which is common among old style projection TVs) it's usually the three picture tube or "guns" are showing their age. If it has slowly become more blurry then that is the case. If it has suddenly become blurry then there may be a fixable defect. Judging by it's age I would suspect that your are up for replacing all three tubes in your set. My recommendation is DON'T DO IT. You will be much better off purchasing a newer and preferably flat screen TV. All projection TVs with picture tubes in them typically last between 10,000 and 20,000 hours of operation. At 11 years your set is in that range if you watch an average amount of TV. Enjoy looking for a new set and pick out something that tickles your fancy. Sets have improved vastly with the thin screen technology.

Green hazy upside down arch of color across the screen


Your convergence board is in need of reworking on a component level or replacing the board! And you will most undoubtedly need to resolder the vertical IC and all ICs mounted on heatsinks on the power supply board. This TV is showing its age. You may choose to repair and that may last a year more or so! Good Luck and thank you for asking!

Blurry screen?


there are 3 things that will make your tv go blurry, the focus and screen control assembly , the high voltage splitter and the horizotal transformer and that is only if all three tubes are blurry.if only one tube is blurry, more than likely the tube itself is bad.

Samsung HCL4715W 47 in. Rear projectio


IF YOU HAVE DOUBLE IMAGES YOU CAN GO IN THE MENU AND TRY TO ADJUST THE CONVERGENCE, OR US THE AUTO JUST. ON SOME SETS IT IS ON THE FRONT. IF IT DOESN'T CORRECT THE PROBLEM THEN IT IS CONVERGENCE. I REPAIR 2-3 A WEEK. WE DO IT IN THE HOUSE, NO NEED TO TAKE THE SET OUT. MAKE SURE THEY REPLACE BOTH CHIP'S AND THAT THEY USE ORIGINAL PARTS, THE GENERICS DON'T HOLD UP. THEY USUALLY LAST 3-5 YEARS DEPENDING ON THE USAGE OF THE SET.

CONVERGE PROBLEM
hello,
60pp9202 About 2 days ago tv went blurry -all colors separated!
I first tried factory setting convergence - NO GOOD!
Then by hand one cross aligned at a time (red mostly, and green, the blue doesn't show misalignment) , tv won't save my efforts after I shut it off.
The crosses around perimeter are bend like bows , so when you try to bring yellow and red crosses together to align with "converge red"- they can't line up because red and yellow crosses are bowed-bent opposite, in center they are closer to straight be still all are a bit warped! images on screen are now also warped as well! If there are any of you in the Queens nyc area that can come and do a good repair- I would be glad to pay a decent fair price! (917)687-6290 CALL ME IF YOU CAN COME TO FIX IT (2PM-8PM) ANTIQUEBABIES@AOL.COM
I WOULD ALSO APPRECIATE ANY ADVICE! CAN I FIX THIS MYSELF BY CHANGING A "SNAP IN" NEW PART OR DO I NEED TO DO SOLDERING AND HAVE TESTING EQUIPMENT AND SPECIFIC TV REPAIR KNOWLEDGE???
THANK YOU! KURT

Jumpy / Schrolling Picture...?


this is a problem of synchronization.  are there any adjusting knobs in the tv set (vertical hold adjust) if  yes you can try but if none maybe consult a technician.
