Sounds like you need new convergences ICs. There are two of them in your set sometimes you can get away with just replaceing one of them but I wouldn't recommend it. They are not too expensive are 15.00 each once you replace them you have to get into the service mode and adjust the convergence.

I have a Panasonic HDTV 1080i, We started to experience a yellow and blue arc at the bottom of the screen about a month ago. Last night the picture went black. Only the sound is left. What happened?


The convergence IC's are definitely bad. This is a big repair involving taking out the main board and soldering in two new IC's. They are not plug-in components and you would need a professional to do this job.

PT-47WX53G green convergence and wave on bottom of screen


Had same problem with Red. Could not adjust. Funny broken lines. Found this link:

http://cmpalmer.blogspot.com/2006/11/fixing-my-own-tv-part-ii.html

Replaced the ICs. Was disappointed at first 'cause it was still all bowed out, but then realized that the Convergence 2 "target" can be changed with the number keys. Working thru 1-9 and going back to readjust as necessary adjusted each one into perfect alignment.

Problem solved. TV works great.

I should add that while I am reasonable technically adept, I am a software geek and never soldered before... hardest part was getting up the courage to dive in and do it myself. Glad I did.

Your convergence ICs are bad. You need 2 of them they cost about 10.00 each. If you can solder you can do the repair in about an hour. hey are located on a real huge aluminum heat sink and they will have a number that starts with STK such as STK392-110. Let me know if you need ay additional info.

Bad Picture


I would say you need to have a service Tech. check or replace the convergence amps or check for cold solder joints on the amps.If your not a tech. don't attemp to do the repair yourself because you'll need to check alot more of the conponents besides the replacement of the amps.

Has anyone had problems with connecting an 'HDMI to HDMI + SPDIF + RCA L / R Audio Extractor Converter (HDMI input,HDMI+ Audio output)' to a Panasonic PT-53TW53? I have a TiVo Premiere hooked up to my Panasonic PT-53TW53. I use the HDMI out, and RCA R+L outputs on the TiVo, and hook up to the digital in connections on the TV. The conversion of the HDMI out is via an HDMI to DVI cable. This has worked perfectly for years, but recently I wanted to disconnect the TiVo and replace with my Roku or Amazon Fire TV. Both have a single HDMI output. So I purchased an AGPtek HDMI to HDMI + SPDIF + RCA L / R Audio Extractor Converter (HDMI input, HDMI+ Audio output) box, hooking up the HDMI output from the Roku or Fire TV to the input on the extractor/converter, and simply disconnecting the HDMI to DVI and RCA R+L outputs from the TiVo, and plugging them into the outputs on the converter/extractor. The converter/extractor has a 3 position switch: PASS, 2CH audio, or 5.1CH (via and SPDIF or Toslink cable). I have had 2 of these converter/extractors, and with both the Roku and Fire TV I got the same results with both converter/extractors: With the switch on 2CH, which is where I understand I should get HDMI video and 2CH RCA audio, all I get is the RCA audio. No video. If I switch to PASS I get video with no audio. Of course on the 5.1 setting I get nothing, since the TV does not support SPDIF. Yet I see reviews all over Amazon indicating folks are using this converter/extractor for this very purpose, and it is working fine. I can't possibly imagine that it is some sort of incompatibility issue with the TV, since the TiVo has worked (and continues to) fine for years. Any ideas?
