    When I turn the tv on, at first I get like 4 vertical blue bars, then when the tv actually comes on, as dbartley states, the picture is very dark, the motion is very blurry or slurred, and if you switch to the next channel, its very slow to show the picture. It doesn't matter how the tv is hooked up. 2 months ago, I had cable, via coax. That did it. Also, my xbox and ps2 did it via av jacks. Now I have satellite through hdmi cable, and it also does it. Have already done the factory reset. Any solutions?

More information is required. Your backlight is lit (screen not dark) but I need to know what you have connected to the TV (your sources) and how they are connected. Does the menu/OSD (on screen display) work?

    Does the OSD/Menu on the TV itself display? How is the cable box connected to the TV? Is it connected composite, component or HDMI?

    I would try a factory reset before anything else. Be aware that in doing this you will lose any saved settings on the TV. To perform a factory reset, turn the TV on, hold the up button on the remote control down and, while holding the up button down on the remote control, press the power button on the TV. When you release both buttons, the tv should power down, and then power up and ask you what language you want. If this does not fix the problem, you will likely have to have a technician look at the set. I would also check all of the other inputs and see if any of them work. But, with no TV OSD, it is probably in the TV and not an easy fix, that is if the factory reset does not work. Good Luck!

SD Tech: VERY dark picture with several black vertical bars

This set like most of these has 3 hidden Menu's=

1. Adjustments (stay out of that one)
2. Convergence (like the one in customer menu but better)
3. Option Menu**************

It will not correct the convergence circuit problem as those adjustments are stored in the Digital Convergence unit on the main board.

What it will do is a hard reset of the TV---everything back to factory original--can cure odd issues: no sound, video issues, you name it.

If you want I have found a site that has this for each of these sets--IT CAN ONLY BE DONE WITH THE ORIGINAL MITSUBISHI REMOTE.

I can get you a link to the site and manual for this set--since I never trust certain sites I do not download that manual but you can look at every page and copy paste to your computer the information needed for the OPTION menu and how to do it----stay out of adjustment menu as one wrong move and poof!

use the make a comment button to let me know what you want to do and I will help.

Wide vertical bands of color through the viewing area. The sound is fine

One of your "X" buffer boards is defective. In Panasonic plasma tv's they are located at the bootom of the set and connect directly to the plasma diplay panel via a thin ribbon cable. The board you want to replace will be directly in line with the discolored vertival line in the picture. The part number is on the circuit board and usualy starts with "tnp..." or "txp..."

Dark Grey Vertical Bar

1. try connecting laptop to an external monitor and check if this vertical dark gray bar appears. if yes it means video is the problem. you need to boot in safe mode then uninstall the video driver. boot to notmal mode then download and install the latest video driver. if still same problem then replace video card. if video is built in with motherboard you need to replace motherboard.

2. when the vertical dark gray bar did not appear in the external monitor then it means issue is with the LCD panel. Do this turn off laptop. press and hold D key then press Power button at the same time or Press and hold on the Fn key then Power button check if the test will run. Color displays full screen when you keep pressing on N key when the colors appears check the vertical dark gray bar if still exist in the test, this means LCD panel and LCD cable needs to be replaced.

If you still have the TV, the remote has to be re-set. Hold the Enter button down approximately 10-seconds. It should re-set itself.

No Picture

Did you have color problems in past? Most of these sets have convergence problems. Amps goes out. But you should have seen some type of distortion from color, red,blue, green. If no color problems then maybe vertical ouput out or horizontal output bad.
