Newer 53" panasonic rear projection w/ RED WAY OUT OF convergenc

5 year old 53" panasonic rear projection (PT-53WXD63G). Red is so far out of convergence (way to the left on the screen) that I can't use the remote control adjustment to bring back into alignment. I took the back cover of the tv off and all 3 bulbs are still working fine. Is there a way to adjust the red bulb or do I have another problem.

The color has gone crazy on you because your convergence IC's have gone bad.
These IC's operate at a very high temp, and usually only last 4-5 years. 
If you remove the back of the set, you will want to look for the BIGGEST heatsink in there, on that heatsink, you will see 2 lage IC's , probably STK392-110, or STK392-120's or something close...regardless - you can go on ebay to order the new ones, but MAKE SURE they are Genuine SANYO IC's and not counterfiet cheapies. the cheap ones may only last 2 months..
You will also need some "Heat transfer paste" - you can pick this up at radio shack.
Once you remove the old IC's, test all the large resistors near them.. pull one side of the resistor out of the board so you can check it out of circuit. they will usually have the value in Ohms, printed directly on the resistor, but you may have to use the resistor color code to find out what value they are....However, usually if there is any damage, the resistor will look like it has been HOT or fried. replace the IC's and any bad resistors, and you should be good to go.
If after replacing the IC's and any defective resistors, the convergence is still bad, make sure to use a multimeter to check ALL fuses on the boards, --- sometimes when the IC's go, they will take out a fuse to the convergence power supply. If you find any bad fuses, replace them accordingly!
Hope that helps!

The small wires are disconnected at the focus and screen control block, and the large HV cable is disconnected from the HV splitter.you may have to reuse the large red wire if the new flyback doesnt have the HV lead attached. The Hot is the horizontal output transistor its mounted to a aluminum heat sink near the flyback.

Panasonic PT-53WX42 - When I turn the TV on, the red light comes on but, no sound or picture.


Does the light blink? If it is blinking a 3 code, the IC's need to be replaced. Those three lamps as you called them are not lamps, they are the three picture tubes.
