Question about Panasonic PT-47WX49 47" Rear Projection Television
I am planning to fix a Hitachi Ultravision convergence problem by replacing the convergence chips. I got the Hitachi kit and it came with two STK394-160 convergence chips. Each chip has a code in the top right corner of the chip. One code is D7G22 and the other is D7115. I am guessing the chips function the same and I can put either one in either location, but want to make sure the code is irrelevant to which location the chip goes. Can I put either chip in for either chip currently on the board? The chips on the board are both stk392-110 chips. The kit came with six resistors to replace for the chip upgrade which I plan to do. Hopefully it will go well if I put the chips in either location.
Thanks, I have the panasonic ptv47 projection set and ordered the sanyo stk394-160 replacement ic's. After soldering both new ic's to board and turning set on, i see smoke and the set turns itself off. Checked solder joints to ic's to make sure their not touching and as far as i can see they are not. Is there anything else that could cause the smoke? The lamps do not turn at all by the way. Could I have fried something on the board when I desoldered the original ic's? Help!
I have read both of the above posts.
On the first post, the 'codes' are the date codes. Both parts were manufactured in 2007, and will have no bearing on performance, should both lots not be the same as they were manufactured on different weeks.
On the second post:
There is allot of misinformation on the web pertaining to the applications of STK394-160(E)'s.
This special device was manufactured by Sanyo exclusively for Hitachi PTV's. They will not work in any other projection TV's except for Hitachi. Let me say this again, "They will not work in any other projection TV's except for Hitachi." The 'E' suffix is the nomenclature for PB Free or lead free. All STK394-160's were manufactured as 'lead free'. The 'E' will not appear on the part. Here's more information:
For Hitachi PTV's ( Projection TV's ), STK392-150 replaces STK392-110. STK392-120 should be replaced with STK392-120 or STK394-160's in matched pairs. The -120's are 4 amp devices while both the -110's and -150's are 3 amp. We market replacement kits for -110's that contain two original Sanyo STK392-150's and the associated resistors along with solder and resistor designations for all models. We also have an STK394-160 Kit, along with solder and resistor designations for all models.

I know there are a lot of questions on what TVs a STK394-160 will work in place of a STK392-110. I just wanted others to know that they may be OK in Panasonic TVs. I put a pair of them (genuine Sanyo STK394-160 from Hitachi x480293 kit purchased from Encompass). 3 years later they are still running fine. My TV is a Panasonic PT-53TWD63G, chassis BP830, MFG 10/03.

Heres your first BIG mistake you have put wrong STKs in Use Stk392-180s or replace with 110s I always upgrade to 180s they hold upbetter Stk 394-160s does not work in this set if ics where 110s then use 110s or 180s
