Sounds like 'bad' or 'dry' capacitors in the vertical deflection circuit. Please note that leaving the white line on the screen too long can burn in the screen, which is permanent damage.

If you can locate the vertical IC you are nearby!. You will have to resoder the grounds on the vertical IC and any cap in the immediate area of this vertical IC is weak. I would replace them all as they will pull each other down. There may be four caps and the largest one, possibly a 25 volt 2200MF would be the only good cap. I dont have the specs on this set, but this will surely lead to a good repair!

Your symptom sounds like a damaged component in the pincushion circuit.

When this circuit fails the picture will have an hourglass shape to it with black in the middle on the sides, or you will see square objects as hourglass shapes.

I would recommend that you have a local service center diagnose the set for you and give you an estimate of the repair.
I have seen this type of repair run from $150.00 - $200.00.

The cost of the repair or replacement of the set is completely up to you. I would most likely recommend that a replacement may be in order, as most television sets are becoming cheaper all the time.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

When you use the Time Warner Digital box, you're using the tuner inside that box rather than the tuner inside your TV to select a channel. Picture in picture TV's have two tuner's inside so you can view two channels, but they can only tune the analog channels from your cable company, and only if it's hooked up in a manner that will permit this to happen.

So you only have one digital tuner (the Time Warner Box) so you can only view one channel at a time even though your TV supports Picture in Picture.

It MAY be possible to have limited use of the PIP if you connect your TV in a different way. Your Time Warner box is most likely connected to your TV set with composite cables, those are the Yellow, Red, White cables. If you buy a coaxial cable splitter and split the cable before it goes into the Time Warner box you can then run a coax cable into both the Time Warner box and the coax input on your TV. This would allow you to tune the analog Time Warner channels with both of your TV's tuners. In my area I think the first 60 channels or so are still available in analog, but there is no way to watch any of the higher premium channels without the Time Warner box.

If you go through these steps and you select the coax input on your TV your PIP will work on the lower channels. It MAY be possible to tell your TV to display the input from the composite cables on one of the PIP screens and the input from the coax on the other, but I kind of doubt it.

I know this sounds complicated and if you're not familiar with the way all this works it is complicated. The reason lots of people won't respond to this kind of question on this site is because there is no easy fix and by trying to help I run the risk of getting a bad rating. I don't get paid for this, I just like trying to help, so if I have not explained this in a way that's helpful to you please ask some additional questions before you give me a bad rating. Thanks.

1. Press the ACTION button on the remote control to display Main Menu. 2. Press the CH up/down or VOL right/left button to highlight the desired icon. In Picture menu under VIDEO ADJ. select: NORMAL - Reset all picture adjustments to factory default settings. Good luck!

You may have come close to what the issue is---Blu Ray for several design reasons is much more critical than DVD---seen a lot with this issue----either a dirty or a failing optical pickup in the unit---I know as when first started seeing it in our shop changed a few and since under warranty found the answer--optical unit was the problem---shortly after that they started just exchanging the cheaper units.

It is a complex unit made moreso as it is part digital and part analogue. The best advice is to take it to a Panasonic dealer or at least try to obtain a service/repair manual before even thinking about tinkering with it.

If it is a Projection television, throw it away, it is antique. Once they start to go, you will be chasing failed parts.
