Projection sets have two very common problems.

The first common problem is convergence


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

I have this same issue. Did you ever figure out what was going wrong and how to fix it?

Panasonic... | Answered on Nov 04, 2014


Easy fix. I had the same green dot problem and I removed the front panel (no screws). In the center is a panel that has two screws. Remove them and pull the cover off. There you will find the projection bulb. Do not clean the bulb but instead the base. Use a damp cloth to wipe the dust off the black disk (the base of the projection bulb housing). Apparently the dust through static electricity may cause enough magnetism to distort your picture. Hope this helps.

  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.

That board will be hard to find. But the power indicator should blink a series of blinks when it doesnt power up the number of blinks will indicate where the problem is thats preventing the set from powering up. If you let me know the number of blinks I will assist with the problem.

If none of the connections on the set work look for a menu on the unit in the owner manual for the PS3---it may be a selectable setting in that that is causing this problem--also try the PS3 on another set to make sure it is ok.

Have set not work and power light blinks 3 times?

Panasonic... | Answered on May 25, 2012


Your part# for the lenticular screen is TKG2AH50641. Panasonic has them new for $358.65 plus shipping. Or you might be able to find one cheaper if you google it or find someone that has the same model TV that doesn't work anymore.
