Question about Panasonic PT-47WX49 47" Rear Projection Television
I have a PT-47WX49 rear projection Panasonic TV that is 4.5 years old. When I powered it up yesterday, the picture came on with a nonuniform distorted appearance. In general, the picture appears to be misaligned with a blue shadow on the entire picture. In addition, there is a blue semicircular area at the bottom of the picture with a red semicircular shadow above the blue area. It is impossible to align the blue and red using the convergence functions as different parts of the picture are out of alignment in differing amounts. Finally the geometry of the picture appears to be distorted in the blue and red semi-circular areas at the bottom of the picture.
I've posted this solution several times but here goes. Try setting up the convergence through the menu by accessing the convergence setup menu. If this fails to work you have a bad digital convergence box and need a tech to replace it. About $60 to $100 fix.
