Question about Panasonic PT-45LC12 45" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Pt-45lc12 I own a Panasonic PT-45LC12 45IN REAR PROJECTION LCD TV. I noticed today a purplish color flicker on the left side of the screen. I am getting the same flicker on all inputs (componet 1, RGB, etc..) Is this the lamp going bad? or something else?

  • digjoe123 Nov 04, 2007

    how much does it cost for a tube. Is it easy to replace, Where do i go to buy it

  • digjoe123 Nov 06, 2007

    I know this may sound dumb, but are you saying I need to replace the Lamp TL-1500 or are talking about a speicfic green tube light???

  • digjoe123 Nov 07, 2007

    Thank you for your detailed response. I checked again to make sure, but I am getting the purple flicker on all outputs, including the DVD player (while playing DVD as well). So I am to assume the solution is replacing the lamp, correct?

It looks like a problem with a tube (projector light) I suspect the green one. Pay attention to flickering on the lights and post me the results.

    I think that if your lamp is flickering all the time, replace the lamp. LCD rear projection tvs are very complex. You have to make sure that it is not an upconverting problem with a DVD player too. If no lamps flicker, then it would be the green tube light. This solution is accounting for that the purple color is on the screen constantly even without the DVD player on. Get back to me if you need further assistance. There are other causes but you must eliminate the easiest possibilities first.

    Yes, replacing the lamp should fix your problem. Good Luck

Call where you bought the TV. This is not normal for an LCD TV. They should exchange it only being a week old.
