Question about Panasonic PT-53WX42 53" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Screen Distorded My PT-53WX42F was hauled in a pickup truck backwards. Yep, facing the wind. Needless to say the screen blew in. I removed the front and all the brackets, reinstalled the screen (2 pieces of plastic) and the brackets. The screen seems floppy and when you watch it, it looks like your looking through a tube. The center is clear in a circle but the rest is blurry. Did the screen need to be glued in prior to the holding brackets being installed? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Dennis

You're either missing a piece of the screen or something's installed wrong. The order should be 1: front protective screen 2: the lenticular, and 3: fresnel lens.

All is supposed to be assembled with double sided tape, one being a special ultra-thin clear tape. DO NOT USE GLUE

Good luck, Mark

That was an expensive mistake, sorry to hear about it.

I checked with the factory and not all 3 parts you need are available any more... Unless you can find someone junking a similar set with a bad chassis, you may have difficulty fixing your's.

Good luck in your search.

Sounds like your convergence chips are going. Unless you are real handy with soldering iron I would suggest having a tv repair shop service it(probably cost $200-300). If you are handy then I believe the chips you need are Sanyo STK392-110. There should be 2 of them. be careful if you order them online, there are lots of chinese knock-offs out there.

It's called tearing and it's likely in the HV circuit, possibly the FBT or splitter. Won't go into any greater detail than that, other than to say it's time to call the technician. Voltages in that circuit can make you VERY dead...

Resistor


electronix.com or matelectronic.com should have that resistor. Be sure to specify flame resistant 5% tolerance that is a convergence resistor so it needs to be flameproof and install it up off the board like the origional was.

Does it blink three times if so its a convergence problem -your set uses stk392-110 i usually replace with stk392-150 or stk392-180 these are more stable. if you have no soldering experience or electronic experience. but if you want the challenge go for it. remember that there can be several thousand volts in this set even when unplugged.

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together convergence repair kits for most models.

The kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, thermal paste, etc. Everything you will need to do the repair yourself.
