You have a completely different problem. The screen voltage for the blue picture tube is slightly too high on your set. This will put fine lines in the background of the picture, called retrace lines. This is very common and easy to correct. Remove the front speaker cover and the access panel behind it. Look inside and you will see a black box with six controls, each control having a little white glue on it. This is the Focus/Screen block. Three controls are labeled Focus and three are labeled Screen. The screen control in the center is for green but I am not sure if the screen control on the left or right is for blue for your model. With the TV on, set it to VIDEO 1 but do not connect anything to the VIDEO 1 jacks. This will produce a pure dark picture, showing any faint lines in the background. Choose one of the screen controls and increase (turn clockwise) it slightly. If the blue lines do not get brighter it means you are turning the red screen control, so put it back where it was and choose the other screen control. When you find the blue screen control, decrease (turn counter-clockwise) it until just when the blue lines are gone. If you want you can check that the red and green screen controls are set to just below the point where their faint lines are visible. When done, replace the panels and your picture will be back to perfect.

MikeNJ1964 was exactly right! I have a Sony KP-65WV600 that had horizontal green lines that showed when the picture was darker. I had to remove 3 screws on the right and left side of the tv holding in the speakers...carefully pop out the middle panel from the clips holding it in....remove 4 screws from the cardboard in the middle and remove the cardboard. I then saw the six screws. The adjustment screws were the three below. I turned the middle screw until the lines dissapeared. I tried the left screw and blue lines appeared which I then adjusted away.
THANKS a bunch. SAVED me money!!!

The TV shows light green ring line on the screen.


Take off the speaker grill and the particle board just behind it. You'll find a block with six knobs. The 3 bottom knobs can be adjusted ever so slightly to fix your problem. Do it very slowly. You wan to adjust the center knob for green. Turn it until the lines go away. But again, do it very slowly. You're adjusting the voltage to the green tube. Do it too fast and you can damage it.

Blank Screen - Panasonic PT-50LC13-K


Hey Ben, The TV is alerting you it is about time to change your light bulb, it will keep on doing this until the light bulb just dies.
Order your Bulb via On Line at any of the places, there are different prices, but average for the authentic one with the chasis included is @ 260.oo and only takes @ 5 days to get delivered. You can save up to 140.oo if you just order the pure light bulb, and go the extra mile changing it, I just explain someone how to about it, only takes you 30 mins. Good look, I hope I get help for my problem too.

Blue out of focus; casting blue "glow"


Try changing the coolant in the blue tube. Contaminated coolant will give a halo look to the affected tube and you will experience difficulty focusing that color.Phillips/magnavox's blue is the tube most often affected with the contaminated coolant issues.
