Question about Panasonic PT-53TW53 53" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
Most likely the failure of the Screen.
If you purchased the product new, and have the receipt Panasonic will repair it FOC from what I understand, at least 3 years, your TV is no where near that old yet.
If you bought it, but don't have the receipt.....

This is a fault developing within the screen, the only remedy is to have the screen replaced, there is no exact answer to why this has happened, it is just the nature of a plasma screens make-up that sometimes a fault can develop like this within the characteristics the display

Testimonial: "Thanks. Might have to live with it as it sounds expensive to replace!"

You could have one of three problems. One is really expensive to fix and you might want to trash the set. Thats if the panel is bad. Secondly, it could be a buffer board that went bad. Not as expensive as the panel. Finally, it could be the connection between the two. I would first take the back off and locate this board. Undo the ribbon cable and clean it off a bit and put it back. If its still there, you have a deeper problem.
The buffer boards are located across the bottow when you take the back off. About 3 inches wide. Sometimes they are on the top as well.
