Question about Panasonic PT-47WX53 47" Rear Projection HDTV
We have a panasonic PT-47WX53G which started exibiting problems last week. The bottom of the screen is distorted, the image looks like its being pushed up in a wave, this is mostly on the bottom left. the other problem is the convergence is way off, mostly the green, but the red and blue dont look right where the wave is on the bottom. there also seems to be an issue in the top right, its not as severe but the convergence is definately not right there either. when i pull up the manual convergence adjustment, i can adjust the red and blue crosses but the green crosses are all way off and most of the crosses are not 90degrees, they are all warped. I dont know much about tv's but i like to tinker, if its something simple I may consider trying it myself but nothing that involves soldering, im not overly comfortable with that.
thanks so much
Had same problem with Red. Could not adjust. Funny broken lines. Found this link:
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.
