Question about Panasonic PT-53TW53 53" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Double image the second showing in red PT 53TW53G

The TV still gives a picture but has a definite double image which when viewing text on screen it shows as red text. I have tried resetting the convergence to default but nothing changes. Does this sound like a solder joint let go somewhere?

    Okay thanks I will call a shop for repair. I have since posting turned it back on and noticed the picture now sort of snaps/flickers a few times during the 5 mins I had it on.

Tv is showing double vision with red being the second image


Hi,
This is due to convergence out chips failure, replace convergence out ICs in TV to get converge picture.
If you are handy with electronics stuff repair and want to repair TV by yourself (soldering work is required) then let me know exact model number written at back of TV to provide you more technical info OR ask local tech to fix it.
Thanks.

I have a Panasonic HDTV Projection PT-47WX42 with double imaging.


Projection TV sets have two very common problems listed below.

Problem #1) Convergence


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Panasonic PT-51HX41 rear projection tv showing shadow/double images.


Unplug the TV from the ac wall outlet for about 4 minutes then plug it back in and turn it on. If it still has a double image then tell me if it's affecting the menu screen from the TV (not the cable menu). And is the double image in red and blue?
