I'll try to keep post short,
Problem Is I Let warranty run out on Panasonic TV pt51hx41 in july 08.TV picture went out in Dec.08 had ,bow tie effect ,curved colors convergence Crosses bottom left red looked twisted and smaller would not line up, called repair man
going to pay out of pocket to have tv fix.Came out look said it could be fix that it was the convergence chips watch him put new ones in .Did not fix tv put some resistors in board.Gave up and took tv to has shop to work on it.Come to find out he could not fix it. Got tv back.I recieved a GE service contact in mail to renew warranty on tv a day before I got tv back from shop .Called GE said it was find that it had been worked on be another company payed for warranty had to wait 30 days before it took affect.Called GE sent TV repair man out.Look at tv said same thing convergence chip bad opens tv replaces chips Picture still twisted.He got to looking other man had put wrong resistors in board.
TV called for a 2.?ohm but it had a 3.?ohm in board.
When repair man find this. He said it caused main memory to get erased and throw colors to far off.Tv is non repairable .Now warranty won't cover the repair because it hand wrong parts installed.I honstly
Think tv had memory lost before first guy worked on it.Is there anyone out there that knows what parts I would need to fix tv myself,steps for that repair or would it just cost to much thanks for your time reading post to help. Not a expert at all but have 2 yrs high school electronics Thanks again KS
Something is not right here. Is there any possibility that you can get the circuit designation (Rxxx) of the resistors that were "incorrect"? I am not aware of anything like this that can cause the "memory to be erased". The only memory in that area would be the factory convergence settings which can be modified from the service menu. Please try to supply the resistor IDs and I'll check on this.
