Question about Panasonic PT-53WX53 53" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
I bought this tv new in '03. It was manufactured on May of '03. The Model Number is PT-53wx53G. The "ghosting" came on suddenly and the colors are red, green and blue. Is this something I can fix? Thanks for any help!
The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.
These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.
When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get a convergenece repair kit with instructions from the links below.
