I turned my tv on last nite to watch the football

game on ESPN and the strangest thing happened. Instead of having a picture, there was

a vertical rainbow colored wallpaper design with a light green background that filled the screen. audio was fine. Every channel had that pattern.

I turned the set off and back on and the picture returned. I called panasonic and they didn't have a clue so they told me to call a tech and have them look at it.

Does anyone out there know what might have happened to my tv?

Unplug your TV for a minimum of 12 hours, 24 would be optimal. What has happened is a magnetic field of some sort has futzed your tube. I have a CT27SX11 in the bedroom upstairs and this happened to me approx 1 month after purchase. I took it back to CC for a service. They returned it to me and gave me the above directions and cause.


Good luck.

Check out the movie Private Parts (Howard Stern autobiographical) you will get the jest of it.

You might want to try degaussing the set. I know the 34WX52 has this feature addressable through the menus so the 30 should have it as well. I had to do this once a few days after I got my set. Saw rainbow color effects and the like one time when I powered it up. Has not done it again since I degaussed it. The degauss might be under Magnetic Correction or something like that in the menus.
