Colors are separated, double vision in lower right corner.


Oh, yea - another misaligned projection TV. All rear projection TV's seem to eventually get this disease.
Fix: perform a "convergence," which will converge all 3 color projectors to the same point.

Convergence on my panasonic pt47wx53g is out of whack. tried setting to default and tried the convergence steps in book. neither worked. red is especially bad. everything looks to have 2 heads 4 eyes...


Did you try the service menu convergence options or are you talking about the basic conergence steps in the manual?

I have had this TV for going on 9 years and would be happy to walk you through the steps.

Panasonic hdtv projection colors will not line up


If only minor convergence issues, the setup menu has user controls for 9-point convergence. If it's major misalignment in just one color, you may have a blown convergence amplifier chip. Big bucks repair, unfortunately. Chipsare about 30-40 dollars apiece but labor will kill you if they'll even fix it on-site. Most try to order $700+ board which is no longer available. Teh they send yours out for -10 weeks at similar prices.

Panasonic hd projection with conver. problems


Your TV most likely has one or more possible problems.

Problem #1: Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem
  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.



You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.


Problem #2 CRT Fluid is Cloudy

Projection TV tubes have a liquid coolant that is used to keep them from overheating. After many years the coolant in the blue and green tubes will become cloudy and cause the screen to look dull, red/orange, etc. You may even see halos around images.

Picture of a set that needs the fluid changed.

What you will need to do is replace the coolant and clean the crt. You can get a repair kit from www.TvRepairKits.com that includes replacement coolant, photos. instructions, etc.

Convergence On Panasonic PT-47WX54j


You dont need codes for the service menu you need to repair the convergence circuit. If the lines wont line up in the customer menu they wont line up in the service menu either. Do you know how to solder? If so we can fix this yourself with a little instruction. Otherwise you will need to call a repairman. A good repairman will run you $300-$500 depending on your area. Let me know what you want to do.
