Question about Panasonic PT-47WX49 47" Rear Projection Television
Two days ago, the red gun went whacky...I went into convergence and it went away. The TV ran fine for two days but today, I turned it on and the same thing it happening. The red is about 2 inches too high on the left side and sweeps down to about two inches too low on the right side. ALso, the top right is too high, but the center looks fine. Can anyone give me some direction at to where to begin troubleshooting this set? Thanks!
You have a typical convergence problem here that happens on just about every tube type projection TV set ever made. There are two STK IC's that will need to be changed. Best thing to do, if you have any soldering experience on printed circuit boards, would be to get the service manual, locate the convergence amp IC's order the correct parts and not any replacement IC's that cost less the 20 bucks, and change the IC's. If you have no solid state repair experience, play it safe and call in a pro to assist you in this repair. Good Luck
