Question about Panasonic PT-53WX42 53" Rear Projection Television
I seem to having the same problem with my 53WX42 set..I see you were able to fix yours. Did you fix it yourself or have a repairman service the tv? If it was serviced, how much did they charge you?
If you've already replaced the convergence IC's and confirmed the coolants in each tube are filled, you probably need a factory level convergence done.
The procedure is 18 pages long and requires a NTSC pattern generator to do correctly. You need a funtional remote. Personally I'd recommend finding a well-trained tech to do it for you. Takes
about 2 hours to do both 480 and 1080 modes. Anyone who tries to do it from home without equipment is asking for headaches. It's hard enough to do in our shop... (were factory service for Matsushita)
You might get away with a minor touch-up for any particular area, but going into the factory-level setup mode without knowing what you're doing is not recommended - you may find yourself replacing the EEPROM.
Good luck, Mark
