Question about Panasonic PT-47WX49 47" Rear Projection Television
Well there seem to be a lot of people recently with the same problem as mine so I've got an idea as to what it is. I've done the "POWER/ACTION self-check reset" the unplugging and found the tech menu (which was impossible to read on the screen so couldn't do anything with it). The self check tells me all systems are OK. The problem is with the green when trying to set the convergence using Convergence 1 the horizontal line in the "big green cross" is high and can be moved but not to where it should be it also is a bit wavy, the vertical line is a bit distorted at the top and progresses to not even making it to the bottom of the screen. Moving on to the next screen (lining up red, blue, green in the middle of the screen) the green cross is high to the point where I can line up red and blue and the very top of them is only the bottom of the green horizontal line. Convergence 2 is fairly impossible to deal with maybe getting one cross to line up if any. Needless to say the picture has everything with a headache inducing "green ghost" effect. This would lead me to believe I need to replace my IC's. But I also have an "hourglass effect" going on with the green. The bottom of the screen when watching something has a curved band of green lines above this is where the "ghosting" comes in below it things are clear and oviously just the reds and blues. The top of the screen has a bit of this but it's not as pronounced. I saw this problem elsewhere up here and the suggestion was the digital convergence box. Don't know which one I should look into first so any help would be appreciated (and yes I'd love to have the tech manual emailed to me!!). Also would appreciate the best place to look into getting the parts needed to fix this up. Thank You Very much!!
I seem to be having the same problem as Silentq2... Just browsing these boards makes it seem like everyones panasonic tv's are all going bad about the same time.. strange..
