Question about Panasonic PT-47WX49 47" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Convergence floating My red convergence 'floats' off center by about 1 inch. A slight tap on the side of the set resets it temporarily. This occured about 1 year ago, then worked fine until this weekend. Now it will not stay set. If I attempt to reset the convergence, it doesn't hold. I can't get this to a repair shop. If someone could identify the part required and it's relatively easy to replace, I could do it myself, or at least I could tell a repair person to bring that with them. Thanks for any help,

Re: convergence floating

First thought should be that you have bad solder conections resolder all around the vertical and high voltage and see if that clears up your problem. good luck windman

When I turn on my rear projection tv & the tv is cold the color will float,the picture will shake side ways for about 15 minutes.what can I do to fix the proble?

You did not provide a model so I am not sure of the type of set u have. Wheather it be CRT, LCD, DLP or LED. My 1st guess regarding "color float" is possably the convergence board/section of your set. And the warming up issue could be the result of cold solder connections and/or faulty caps on 1 or more circuit boards. Search your model number through the internet for clues.

55 inch mitsubishi rear projection tv red lamp out of adjustment

Have convergence IC's replaced. I believe this unit uses STK-392-570 convergence IC's Only one has gone bad but replace them both, because if one has failed then the other is not far behind, for Blue and Green. One handles Red, One handles BLUE and Grn. There are only two of them in the set, They are the two largest IC's in the entire set.

Converge off a little and screen has green tint

If you have the remote, go to the setup screen and move the picture. Converge has nothing to do with where the picture sits but, where the red, blue & green dots land. All you should see are pure white dots. There should be absolutely NO color ghost anywhere on the screen. If so, you need a bar / dot generator to set the convergence to center the dots.

Convergence WAY off...

You problem is the convergence IC's. This is much less expensive to fix than a red crt. Sometimes it is bad connections. Can you tap on the side of the tvand make the red correct itself?. If not, have the convergence IC's replaced and the problem will be solved.

Jvc av48wp74 horizontal convergence unadjustable after after repair

you have to lift one side of the resistor from circuit in order to measure resistance otherwise a open resistor will not read open as you will be reading the resistance from the surrounding circuit. Always lift one side of a resistor out of circuit when testing with a ohms meter.

Red Gun screwy!!

You have a typical convergence problem here that happens on just about every tube type projection TV set ever made. There are two STK IC's that will need to be changed. Best thing to do, if you have any soldering experience on printed circuit boards, would be to get the service manual, locate the convergence amp IC's order the correct parts and not any replacement IC's that cost less the 20 bucks, and change the IC's. If you have no solid state repair experience, play it safe and call in a pro to assist you in this repair. Good Luck
