Question about Panasonic PT-53WX53 53" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

Cannot adjust convergence, screen has rainbow effect

My Panasonic PT-47WXC43G has a rainbow effect across the whole screen, and adjusting the convergence doesnt seem to help. When watching cable tv, the problem is not so noticable, but when I turn on my video games, you can clearly see all three colors, in a ghost-like effect. Is this a bad bulb, or something else?

Re: Cannot adjust convergence, screen has rainbow effect

You probably need to change out the semiconductors. The parts are STK392-110. There are two of them, one for horizontal and one for vertical. Search it online more.

Panasonic PT-47WXC43G green ONLY is bowed on bottom and top

It still convergence chip problem, check big resistors nearby these chips that would be open or devalued and causing problem, specially in green convergence area, your green tube/ gun is just fine and just not getting convergence output signal to show correct image.
I would suggest to download service manual copy of this tv for small fee from any website and fix the issue with schematics help.

Convergence problem

The reason you can not adjust it is because there is hardware failure in the convergence board.
Visit this website and ask them for a convergence assembly for your TV. Once you replace that assembly, the convergence might still need to be adjusted manually.
Good Luck.
