Question about Panasonic PT-56WXF95 56" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Fuzzy picture, oval shaped, scrolling up slowly

RCA 19" TV, made in 1985. I know its old and not worth fixing, but i hoped somebody could point me to what circuits might be causing this. I have some experience troubleshooting electronics. The picture used to be perfect, now on any channel, even with no antenna hooked up, the screen is squished into 2 oval-shaped windows that constantly scroll upwards. The picture itself stays centered on the screen, you can still see it through the oval-shaped "windows". It takes about 30 seconds for the windows to go from the bottom of the screen to the top and then wrap around back to the bottom. I can take a picture if it would help. Thanks.

I would start by checking the large filter capacitors in the power supply. I can't be sure since I'm not seeing the set, but it sounds like you're describing AC ripple. In a 20-year-old set, some of those electrolytics will be drying out. A few replacements may take care of the trouble for you.

Hello,

Your convergence amplifiers are begining to malfunction. This is not expensive However I would advise that you get a qualified TV technician to work on the set due to a chance of damaging you TV if you install the amplifiers incorrectly.

I hope this helps

thank you,

Adjust the focus on the red CRT slightly that should take care of the issue. The focus controls are located behind the lower front panel and the secondary access panel. Its a rectangle box about the size of a pack of cigarettes it has 6 dials on it 3 for the focus and 3 for the screens.

Double images and colors are blurry .Blue,red and yellow wave coming up from the bottom of the screen on the lower left and fuzzy images this is a symptom is for busted convergence IC,you must replaced this IC in order that will works better again.STK 392-xxx ICs and it's associated resistor,this resistor automatically change value,can caused truoble even though you change the ICs.If you bring this to a service center they cost you $600 to $700,but if you buy the repair kit you can save more,don't wory it is very easy because there is intallation guide including in the repair kit.

Your ICs are bad that control the Convergence. I would quess that the ICs that they have used before have been the cheaper versions. Sanyo are the best the cheap ones only last for a while then need replacing. The sanyo chips cost considerably more than the imitation ones but are worth it in the long run.
