Sounds like a convergence problem... do you have red, blue, or grean outlines (double image)? If so you will need to change the convergence board or convergence amp (driver board) Not to expensive or difficult. Might have to make some touch ups in the convergence menu after you get done changing the board.

Converging problem


This is a rear projection TV that uses three color "guns" in a cathode ray tube . They are no longer converging at the screen. The convergence problem is usually a sign of something else gone wrong with the high voltage.
Do NOT attempt to open this set yourself. This type of TV can have LETHAL voltages inside for WEEKS after it is unplugged. The repair and convergence calibration will require a qualified service technician.

My Panasonic PT53WX52F has a sideways hourglass picture with the green scroll running in an arc with the same red scroll running straight across. Is this the convergence chip you talk about?


There are two common problems with these sets.

Problem #1) Convergence

Symptoms:
  • Screen Looks 3D
  • Colors wont align
  • Video may look distorted
Problem #2 CRT Fluid has clouded over. Symtoms
  • Dull looking video
  • White looking video
  • Halos around objects
  • Red/Orange looking video

You can see some examples and find a fix here...

Red sideways hourglass


Your TV most likely has one of two possible problems.

Problem #1: Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem
  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.



You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.


Problem #2 CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.
