Question about Panasonic PT-47WX51 47" Rear Projection Television
I have a Panasonic Proj. TV, PT4743G which I bought about 54 years ago. Based on what I've been reading on this site, I thought I had a convergence problem (red won't line up) and now I'm getting some bowing effect. Authorized Panasonic dealers took TV today and did full diagnostic test. Said it's a power supply problem which is causing the convergence problem. Power supply would cost $500 - $550 (includes labor) and the convergence just needs an overhaul after that. 1 year warranty on part and 90 day on labor. They claim that all should be good after the power supply fix and the overhaul on the convergence. Does this sound right (ie. price and power supply issue). I need to get back to them to authorize the repair or say forget it and count my losses!! What's going on with these new tv's??? I have the old ****tube from 20 years ago that still works!!
It is indeed a power supply problem and if bowing is also present the flyback transformer is also shot Repairs for these items would be about $280-300 for parts + labour

Your Projo is a complicated piece of equipment, involving 3 picture tubes (like 3 tv's), convergence failures are extremely common, I dont think $550 is totally unreasonable, but I dont think it is a power supply issue if it is just effecting 1 color, usually it would cost around $100 parts $300 labor to repair, might be a little high, I suppose they are also charging you for pickup and delivery, I hate taking sets into office as that sometimes jars stuff loose or cracks boards.
