Question about Panasonic PT-51HX41 51" Rear Projection Television

Convergence for HD channels only

I just replaced my convergence IC's per all the great advice online and it fixed all the channels except my HD channels (through cable). The HD channels still have the red ghosting problem. My TV is a Panasonic PT51HX41E Are there other Resistors/caps/fuses that need to be replaced? Thanks in advance

Hello, please check the IC7102 (24LC64). This is eeprom that contains the convergence data. Please ask the Panasonic dealer if they can supply a replacement IC with the data for your HD. If you need more info please advice. Arpi

Yes it can be fix, first try to adjust the convergence setting in the setting menu then go to convergence section, adjust the red and blue convergence. You should be able to move the red and the blue convergence up, down and left, right but if you cannot move this far enough the convergence IC is defective and should be replaced. This convergence IC is attached to a large aluminum plate, this is the heat sink and the convergence IC has a marking of STK-#### followed by a number, in order to replace this IC you should have a soldering iron, desoldering pump, soldering lead be careful when pulling out the IC you may accidentally tampered or damage the PCB and caused much damage to the unit. Note before opening the back cover of your tv be sure to unplug it first. But if you are not familiar with electronic parts you can contact a service technician to do it for you and save you from stress good day and best regards.

You are suffering from a convergence problem. In this case I recommend you see a TV tech. To pull the convergence board is a real chore. Your convergence board will have too many bad grounds to even begin to count. You may not have to replace the convergence IC. The IC will be of a STK-393-110. In many cases this IC will be replaced by an after market part. You will have to check and replace resistors of a 2 watt value of about 3.9 ohms. In good faith, the TV man will replace this convergence IC ,as to try to correct the problem the first time. Good advice for the ,do it your selfer. Take this note to a TV tech. Some knowledge could save you a few bucks. Thanks for asking and show all hands of support!

Horizontal Curvature with convergence problem

DA, convergence circuit has failed, the IC`s and possibly a couple of support resistors need to be replaced, your right about it being a good set, 6 years is about average for convergence IC`s, call your local shops for a few estimates and get it fixed, it will run for a lot longer than 6 years, hope this is the advice your looking for, e-mail me if you have more questions, BMW Rider

Right side convergence

A convergence IC has burned out. If I remember correctly, those Pioneer sets have one huge convergence IC, but that IC only has 5 channels in it so they use another smaller dual STK IC and one half of it is used for the 6th channel and the other half is the vertical output. Look on the convergence board, find the blue convergence jack, identify the blue horizontal channel, follow the traces and replace the IC handling the blue horizontal channel.
