Question about Panasonic PT-51HX42 51" Rear Projection Television
The main board has a series of solder joints that have loosened due to poor solder used at the factory on this part. It is common for it to fail after several years from heat. It takes about 45 minutes for a service tech to unbuckle the TV, remove various components to get to the board (at the bottom), resolder the row, then put everything back together. It will likely cost $250 to $300 to get it repaired in your home if your Mitsubishi does not have an extended warranty, unless you are familiar with this situation and can do it yourself. If you do it yourself, you would be smart to blow out all the dust with a leaf blower first and wipe down the mirror and CRT's with rubbing alcohol and microfiber cloth to return the brightness to new levels at this time.

Might be that one of the convergance amps died, replacing that would fixya ;] but - screwing around with the service menu could get you in trouble if you dont know what you're doing, and also trying to replace anything. So i would suggest you take it back to the shop(if under warranty) or to a professional to a looksy, unless you have any experience yourself. cheers
