Question about Panasonic PT-47WX42 47" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

Convergence My daughter hit our t.v screen on the right side and here is what we have now. The screen on right side looks like someone poured yellow dye down it. Everything is highlighted in blue (like 3 d). Tried all of the convergences. Red lines up good and green seems ok. Blue is way off on the right side and I can't move the crosses at all. There are only two crosses on the top left that line up ok and turn white. All of the other ones are way off. I am wondering if it can be fixed by a repairman. I hate to spend too much money for an in home repair if its going to cost a lot. I would rather put the money towards a flat screen. I know this is not something I can fix myself but I have no idea what repairs to this extent would run. Thanks, Monique

If the CRT Projection television has several colors or one that arent lining up, if due to an impact - you may have a broken mirror, if just happened all by itsself it may be a convergence issue, either issue is repairable, probably for around $400-$500. I dont recommend taking a set like that into the shop as sometimes transport can break/crack a mirror or throw convergence off.

SOURCE: Convergence Problem?

The convergence IC most likly shorted, and burnt out the b+ feed resistor. There are two IC's inside this set to control the green red and blue convergence. They are most likly STK 392-###. The ### is another set of numbers that change depending on the model of the set. They each have three amps inside each one. You really should have both of the IC's replace with only original parts, as sub parts do not hold up and will not last as long as they should. Both IC's are soldered into place and if you decide to do this yourself, please be aware of the extemly high voltage inside of these puppys. there really are no user replaceable parts inside these sets unless you have solid state repair experience. Not only will yopu need the proper IC's, but you will have to find out what was burning. my best advice, Play it safe and call in a trained tech to assist you with this repair. The price should run someware between 300 to 450.00 to repair. Good Luck Please do not forget to rate this thread.

You will need to replace your two convergence I.C.s.They are two large IC mounted on a large aluminum heat sink.Replace both,look for any burned resistors near them,replace those if needed,and readjust your convergence. Good Luck

Let me know if you need any further help

SOURCE: 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.

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,Akai2_bing.gif,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Screen lookes like colores separating


This is what is known as convergence. a projection tube ussally has three picture tubes.. red green blue. they all have to align. the concave picture indicates complete loss of convergence or convegence power supply. First question on these sets Do you have the convergence option in the customer menu under setup. if you do not this is a indication of the common "FL231 fuse problem" and inexpensive simple repair. I have wrote and artilcle on this under my tips and trick section. If you do have the option then next does autoconvergence work. in you case i would not think it work. under blue and red manual convergence does the crosshairs move. if not then this is indication of convergence power supply board. if they move at all this may indicate a convergence amplifer problem.

Broken Screen


yep - the internal lcd is cracked - must be replaced

broken screens = out of luck - you can call Sandisk the manufacturer, they will tell you the same; you can call Best Buy geek squad, they will tell you the same; you can look up "Mp3 Repair" in your local or online yellow pages - they will tell you the same
sorry

Do not adjust any knobs as instucted in the previous thread if you TV have a convergence problem. Doing so will only make things worse. The blog does however show you how to fix other common problems with these sets.

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.

2c07611.pngSolution #1

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.

SWounds like the convergence is bad in this set. If there are color outlines or part of the picture looks like it is in 3-D, you will have to have someone change the convergence ICs. Good Luck
