Question about Panasonic PT-47WXC43 47" Rear Projection Television
I recently had a little event 11-16-08 for my 6 yr old and all his friends. They were jumping and banging aroung the living room. After they left, acouple of hours later, A red ghost image appears on my screen. I called the support line for Panasonic and we walked through the convergence steps. NOT EVEN CLOSE TO HELPING THIS PROBLEM OUT!!! I need help and have no idea whats going on, I am an electrician, but have no experience in TV repair.. Did the continuous thumping of the kids knock something outta wack? Is the reflection of the red lense outta place? Any help would be greatly appreciated..
Your TV most likely has one or more possible problems.
Problem #1: Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )
Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem
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 directiConvergerence will not get rid off my ''red ghosti - 2c07611.pngnvergence 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.

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.

It is likely that there are poor solder connections at the convergence ICs. The extra vibration might have been enough to completely break the connections. If you can solder, you can fix this yourself. Look for large black ICs attached to a heat sink . They should be marked STKxxx. If you can solder, try resoldering the pins first. If that fails to resolve the problem, replace the ICs.
Please note that there are high voltages that can be dangerous inside the set even with the set unplugged.
Keep me posted,
