PT-53WX52 53 in. Rear Projection

I turned on my TV and the convergence is way off. When you go to the convergence two screen the number 1,2,3,6,7,8,9 "crosses" will not line up. The red crosses are distorted and above the white crosses. They will not lower to the white crosses but will move side to side. The blue lines up just fine. Any ideas?

You have defective convergence amps. At least one. I would also look for any burnt or open resistors.

It is called convergence out IC failure and you need to replace 2, ICs in convergence section of TV.

If you are familiar with TV repair or can solder electronics parts in circuit board then let me know exact model number of Panasonic TV to guide you more with technical info or call local TV repair shop for repair.

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.

Your TV most likely has a 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.

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site 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.
