Question about Panasonic PT-47WX53 47" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Picture went funny on my PT-47WX53 last night... a blue ghost like arc appeared mirroring the lower portion of the images displayed on the tv a few inches above where they were positioned. Most of the middle of the tv is fine, upon closer inspection it seems like the top is also doing it, though less pronounced than the lower portion of the screen. I've tried to adjust via convergence w/o success. It seems to have split blue and yellow into two seperate images, placing the yellow in the correct spot and the blue above/behind. Does that description make sense? The tv isn't new, fairly recently it was serviced by Circut City when it broke down under a warranty plan, but they did a poor job and I didn't renew the warranty. If I do need to call in a repair person could you speculate at what the cost may be? Is it worth it on an older tv? I'm on a very strict budget right now so any suggestions relative to cost savings would be greatly appreciated. Thank you! Kind Regards, Jeremy

Convergence Problem


The convergence IC's have been known to cause similar problems and both would be replaced at the same time. Not an easy job for a DIYer. I would get a repair shop to fix it.
