This the third time my TV has turned pink. I have had a repair person there twice and all that they do is hook up a laptop and reprogram it. There must be more to this problem if this is the third time in 9 months. Any ideas???

Re: pink color on projection TV
Okay, I'll give you the easy fix and the permanent fix here.
Easy fix - accomplish what those guys do, without the laptop:
Turn off the set. Hold down the Menu/Exit button while you turn it on. Release the button a couple seconds after the set comes on. That brings you into the service menu.
Hit menu on the remote for more options. Scroll down to Memory Init. Check the box next to that to clear the pink. Then hit exit on the remote to exit the service menu.
I'm still looking up some specifics on the permanent fix - I'll get back to you.

Sounds like a problem I've seen on many Hitachi dlp sets, But I'll take a shot. First you need to check and make sure the audio/video cables are tight on the back of the tv and the cable box. This is the most common reason for discoloration on this set. Next, you should let the tv cool down and try unplugging the power from the wall outlet. Just about thirty seconds should do. Maybe it will reset.Third thing to try then would be replacement of the color wheel or digital board. I have this set at home and have repaired them for the factory since they were first produced. Most likely it's caused from loose or bad component video cables but if it needs a color wheel it should be obvious upon removal. This requires major disassembly but can be handled by a cautious and alert person with a long handled philips screwdriver. Magnetic preferred. If you need more help I'm here, Russmann.
HI, The Pc Board that is located in your set, has become unstable. there are several IC's that control convergence and input streams as well. the damaged board should be replaced asap. it is possible for a service tech to be directed to your home but, most will require you to transport your set to the actual repair shop. i will list the part Number below.
Panasonic Part Number: TNPH0370ADS(PC BOARD)$347.95
Does the tv only look like then when hooked up to the receiver? If it is only then, I would try different cables, If it happens all the time even while not using receiver, then it could be your tint settings on your television.
Sounds like the TV's convergence circuit has failed: *Call an Authorized Service Center and them give you an estimate cost of the repair, or *Repair it your self; get KIT 10 locally or B&D Enterprises 1-800-458-6053; www.bdent.com. Good luck, big IRISH.
I'm not really sure on an exact fix for this, but I'm told that these are the symptoms of bad convergence module(s). My set is the same model no. and has the same symptoms. I was looking to see if I could find the exact part no. of the stk ic modules. I'm told that they are approximately $30 to $50 and are not impossible to change out if you have decent soldering skills. The normal repair charge seems to be about $600. Good luck. It looks as tho I may have to just give up and open the back and get the part no.s from the chips
