Question about Panasonic PT-51HX41 51" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Red line runs from middle of screen to right bottom and bends in middle

Hi
I appreciate the help with the remote control issue. It fixed that problem. What was not addressed was the red line that runs from left middle to the right bottom of the screen. It bends the picture. I have tried convergence setup and all of those will allign up but the bottom.  I can not move the red and get an allignment there. I think it is probably the converegence chips bad.However, I am not a tech so I have no idea. Does anyone have a suggestion?
Thanks Terry

    Hi,


    I thank you for your help and insight with this t.v. I had no idea what was wrong with it but figure from your comments that it must be the convergence chips. I thank you for all you have done.


    Sincerely,
    Terry

Sony rear projection screen is red then tv shuts off


Can be 1 of 2 things. 1st the red tube just needs the voltage to it turned down. In the front of TV (you have to remove the lower front half of TV to access it) is a plastic square with 6 knobs. The from left to right top knobs control focus for blue,green red. The bottom knobs control voltage to each tube in same order (so lower right knob for red) turn SLOWLY to left to reduce voltage until excessive red and lines go away. If you over turn left or right set will turn off. If that does not fix it or if lines reappear then option 2 is that red picture tube is failing outright and needs replacement.

Red color alignment problem


1) Whenever a rear projection TV has convergence issues, the
fix involves replacement of both IC's = STK392-110.......sub to
STK394-160E for improved durability...........
2) Soldering only is a temporary "fix" at best
3) Do not allow generic IC's, OEM quality or better = I use
Hitachi brand,made by Sanyo,with no callbacks....
4) Skill level needed = above average,....needs chassis pull...T.

Text/images overlap each other in 3 colors, 3D distorted picture


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 email and they will put one together for you. Their kits includes photo instruction guides, original Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.

You have a focus and screen control box it has 3 controls on top 3on bottom these are the controls for Red-Green-Blue screen drives and for focus to each tube. IT should have Focus /Screen on it.

It sounds like the " RED GUN" may be out of alignment.
I suggest unpluging TV while it is ON* and let it stay off for 15 or more minutes to drain off power. Replug it and see. then we can go from there.

Panasonic PT-47WX53 does not turn on


Yes, I did try to use the power button on the TV itself. That did not work too. Yes, there is blinking red light too. I searched through several sights and found out that it is an issue with the IC 4511. I could not find a place to buy the chip.


By the way, our local TV dealer asked for $400 to fix this issue. I had already spent $400 on a different repair on this TV, 6 months ago.

Any suggestion/advice would be very helpful. Thank you again for your response.

Lateral red or blue movement is accomplished electronically
via convergence alignment circuitry controlled by STK type IC's
Replace them both for reliability, then adjustments will work..
