Question about Panasonic PT-47WX53 47" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Panasonic pt47wx53 i think i have a convergence issue. i did the 9 point test and everything lined up good with the white crosses. but the picture size is still larger than the screen(like its in zoom mode).and in only one of the apect ratios the picture is ok but the sides are black on each side for about 2 inches. when i took the back cover off the mirror looked like it had a green prizm to it. is this normal? i thought it would be clean like a bathroom mirror. i this something easy to fix. also what kind of solder, heat paste and wattage of iron should i buy in needed and where to get these products? thanks

Getting into and setting convergence on these sets can be a DOG so if you do not have correct information you can shut set down when adjusting, make sure you get sams on convergence.

The screen is a grainy and most of the time its almost as if there are is a delay in the picture its as if there are two of everything. but the picture is fine if it is a slow moving sceen.


Hi,
It's a convergence issue. Go into the main TV menu under video settings and look for convergence. If it has an auto convergnce select that and wait a minute the TV will adjust itself and give you a clear picture. If the TV does not have an auto convergence and just regular convergence than select this. It will give you a grid pattern on your TV and you have to move the curser (using TV remote) and adjust each "point" so that each line is perfectly white. If you notice red or blue anywhere on that "line" then you have to adjust using the up, down, left and right arrow keys to "line up the red and blue lines with the nearest white line. It taked time and patience to do, but when completed, all lines on the grid pattern should be pure white and you will have a great looking picture. You have to do this will all TV inputs (Video1, Video2 and so on) the reason Zoom looks good, is because you never used that screen as much and so the lenses didn't have a chance to get out of synch. RPTV's are made of the three lenses (red, Blue and Green) and as you watch TV, these lenses slowly get out of alignment. So you should do a convergence about twice a year to make sure nothing is out of whack.
You can pay somebody to do it, but may cost you like 100.00 dollar or do it yourself, it is very easy just tedious and time consuming. If you have the auto convergence than your golden because this is the easiest way to "reset" the TV.
. Good luck and if you still have the owners manual

Everything has red highlights. but adjusting with the remote does not change things to correct the problem?


Go into the menu with your remote a click on picture next scroll down to convergence and click on it. Follow the on screen instructions on how align or converge the diffrent color lines togeather. It will usually have a white cross on the the screen. This should solve your problems if not have a tech replace the 2 convergence chips in the back of you set

Have aligned all the + signs already but is still out of focus!


with the original remote go into the customer menu and find CONVERGENCE---you will be able to adjust a single cross and also if you continue it will give you several points on the screen with a grid of lines----what you are looking for is does the red and blue adjust in all areas----if either will not adjust up/down and left right---you have a convergence problem--need to replace both convergence IC's and then align the convergence. Hope this helps you.

Alot of red and double image


I had same problem. First went in tomenu and went to set up settings and went to convergence area. I then reset this back to default, which I later was told I should have not done so do not attempt this it will temporarily fix issue but problem will persisit.
I found a local tv repair man thru tvrepairguy.com or something like that as they are hard to find.
The issue turned out to be the convergence boards or circuits, He then went in to master control and rset the convergence settings for the main picture by lining up the red and blue lines on to a white cross on the screen until it is black and white with no red or blue protruding vertically or laterally. He then did this for 7 points around center picture moving the lines. He suggests you play with this for awhile in a position you would normally sit in and at proper eye level to give you the truest picture for alignment. The part cost 109 to replace with labor and service total was 331. The repairman was very nice and explained the issue should be fixed and we should get another 6 to 7 years out of television.
Hope this helps,

Convergence On Panasonic PT-47WX54j


You dont need codes for the service menu you need to repair the convergence circuit. If the lines wont line up in the customer menu they wont line up in the service menu either. Do you know how to solder? If so we can fix this yourself with a little instruction. Otherwise you will need to call a repairman. A good repairman will run you $300-$500 depending on your area. Let me know what you want to do.

Picture not lined up


You will need to replace the convergence ICs I'm afraid. Then do another alighnment. If you already replacxed the IC's, you most likely did not get the exact replacement ICs recommended by the service manual, but whats called after market type IC's, and they just wont do!.

Convergence


If the CRT Projection television has several colors or one that arent lining up, if due to an impact - you may have a broken mirror, if just happened all by itsself it may be a convergence issue, either issue is repairable, probably for around $400-$500. I dont recommend taking a set like that into the shop as sometimes transport can break/crack a mirror or throw convergence off.
