I have been searching the internet for an answer and there are several threads on here about my issue, but no answers. I thought I'd try my own thread and see if anyone can help.
Yesterday afternoon I was watching tv and the screen suddenly and randomly turned see-through pink/purple. Exactly like the tv in thread #1071749. It stayed that color when I changed channels, but went away when I turned the tv off and back on.
I have a panasonic viera, model #TH-42PX77U, I only have two things connected to it, the Comcast DVR box and the PS3, both connected by HDMI. (I was watching cable when the screen changed colors, I wasn't watching something recorded on the DVR either, if that makes a difference). It isn't even a year old yet, I bought it last black friday.
I do have the tv turned on a LOT. I live alone so whenever I'm home I have it turned on for some background noise. The color change yesterday was the first time it ever happened and it's the only issue I've had. However, my tv is my 2nd love (my boyfriend is 1st, of course!) so I'd appreciate any thoughts on what could have caused this and how to prevent any further issues with my tv.
