Hi there

The tube on your tv is likely to have gone. This can be fixed by a tv shop. DONT attempt to open the back of the tv.

Panasonic Viera PC-to-TV Via VGA has Purple Tint

Purple Panasonic PC>TV Problem:
The VGA cable uses three primary color RGB channels.
Red, Green, and Blue.
The picture is made up of pixels or dots arranged in a grid along the "X" horizontal axis and "Y" vertical axis.
The computer mixes the intensity of each color channel to create a unique color per pixel.
All RGB at 100% creates white.
R+G creates yellow.
R+B creates magenta, ie purplish.
G+B creates cyan.
So a purplish tint sounds as if your Green wire has no signal, which may indicate a faulty VGA cable or VGA socket.
Put another way, (R+G+B)-G=R+B=magenta.
So try another VGA cable, spray all socket pins with "Servisol " or similar contact cleaner.
All 0%=Black; All 50%=Grey; All 100%=White.

Purple Screen

If it is only 2 months old,then you still have warranty.
A purple lcd, viewfinder and photo is a 100% CCD failure.
If out of warranty, not worth the repair.

Panasonic th-42pwd5bx - rear screen noise - please help!!

Since the noise started with the new stand, I would suspect vibration as the noise. Did you attach the new stand to the plasma with screws? If the stand is not the issue, then, a fan inside could be making the noise. I have found the flex cables from various boards inside the set causing strange noises. Touch the back of the set and see if the noise goes away or changes in specific areas. When Plasma Panels are set in a corner, they seem to make a louder noise than usual. It could be the panel as well. If the set is one month old and bought from a retail store, then, it should be under warranty and a servicer could be called. Let me know what you found out.
