Question about Panasonic PT-51HX41 51" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Panansonic rear projection TV Convergence needed

The convergence I need is more in depth than the user manual covers. A tech came out and replaced the part that does the convergence and then went into a menu using the front control button and did a very intricate convergence. He decided it was taking too long and that I could live with the non covergence in HD mode. Now I would like to finish his job but doen't know how to access the detail menu.

    Yes, I have the remote that came with the TV. If that's what it is called, then yes, it is the service menu I need to get into. The normal convergence through set up is not good enough, and I saw the service tech go into a deeper menu. He just didn't want to spend the time to complete a dull convergence.

    So, how do I get into the service menu, and what next?

    Thank you.

    Do you have hand unit that came with TV? you must have panasonic hand unit /none of those one for all units will work for setting convergences.Some sets when setting convergence to do it right can take up to 6-hours to correctly set all adjustments.So are you wanting information on getting into service menu?

You have either a bad convergence IC on the power supply/convergence board or the whole board is bad and needs to be replaced along with doing a Full Convergence Alignment by a very experienced tech.

Convergence PROBLEM pHILLIPS mAGNAVOX 60" rEAR pROJECTION


Hi,

All i can say is that this is very common.May be it is not the convergence circuit in this case. it is the power supply not giving the convergence circuit the power it needs to run. there are several parts that need to be repalced here.

Or may be the convergence amplifiers need to be replaced. They're on the Small Signal Board (the one with the tuner[s] on it) and the part on the amp's (there are two on them, replace both) start with STK and will be followed by some numbers and pssosibly letters, such as STK392-110.

Goodluck,
Please don't forget to rate the solution.

What part do I need to replace to fix the convergence on my TV?


Hi,
There are two big black ICs mounted with aluminum heat sink, these are convergence out chips, replace it with same numbers written on it to fix your tv problem.
Let me know if you have additional question.
Thanks.

Remote LOST - need info on what button to press...JVC AV-48WP30


There might be some features that the universal remotes aren't able to do. To perform the convergence alignment you should have the original remote.
Do you have the user manual or service manual?
The service manual will explain this process better.

moving big screens around may throw off the convergence, look to see if you have red,blue or green or all.. ghosts or edges in the picture. you will need a tech manual ..not owners manual to fix it, I would call a local tech and hear what he thinks for just a service charge. good luck

Convergence off on PT-47WX49E


If it's really bad and happened all at once, your convergence amps have failed would need to be replaced before you could correct the issue with an adjustment.

Power comes on then goes back off.


More than likely, the two convergence IC's have to be replaced.
