Convergence on my panasonic pt47wx53g is out of whack. tried setting to default and tried the convergence steps in book. neither worked. red is especially bad. everything looks to have 2 heads 4 eyes...

Did you try the service menu convergence options or are you talking about the basic conergence steps in the manual?

I have had this TV for going on 9 years and would be happy to walk you through the steps.

Red color convergence issue; Red lines are curved

This sounds like convergence output IC problem. convergence board would have to be removed - remove and replace 2 STK IC's and check the surrounding resistors. Shops usually $200-$400 Be sure to vote/rate me if this helped Thanks!

No blue auto convergence when performed by menu buttons

Projection TV sets are known to have two common problems. The first problem that is common to these sets is convergence failure. When this happens the TV will usually look 3D, Wavy/Distorted, etc. It may also shutdown and blink an error code.

The second common problem with Projection TV sets is dull video, halos around objects, white looking video, or red overpowers the screen. This is commonly caused by the fluid in the lens being clouded over.

I had a problem with my TV colors not lining up. One day I turned it on and the green was out of wack. I checked this message board and replaced the STK chips, bad soldering and all led to me just giving up on that and buying a whole new Convergence Board ($185). I just plugged this in and though now my Green lines up okay, my red is out of whack. Is there something I am doing wrong? Can anyone help me? Did i miss a step? Frustrated......Bruce
