Your TV most likely has a Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem

  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together convergence repair kits for most models.

The kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, thermal paste, etc. Everything you will need to do the repair yourself.

Do my panasonic hdtv 1080i need a converter box in order to work?


None of the newer style TV's need a converter box because all the tv channel tuners use a digital signal. The tv signal in the air is now digital when using a tv antenna.

How do I scan the channels on a Panasonic 1080i HDTV? This is for the conveter box hooked up to the DVD/VCR to the Panasonic 1080i HDTV'


The cable to the antenna and another cable from the TV needed to be hooked up and THEN follow the directions that came along with the converter box.
Channel 3/4 and scan., be sure the antenna is strong enough.

There was no need to touch the DVD/VCR box.

1. Do I need any additional equipment to watch HDTV broadcasts on my HDTV-compatible TV?
In order to view over-the-air (OTA) HDTV broadcasts, you need to be within the reception area of a TV station broadcasting HDTV signals. Some TVs may require a set-top HDTV tuner and an external antenna to receive the broadcasts. Your cable or satellite provider may also offer HDTV channels as a part of their service, eliminating the need for a separate tuner. Please contact your local service provider to find out what kind of HDTV services they may offer.

2. What is CableCARD and how does it work?
HDTVs with CableCARD slots can accept a small card from your cable provider that allows you to receive standard definition and high definition digital broadcasts without a bulky set-top cable box. Please call your cable company to find out if they offer this service in your area.

HDMI, which stands for "High-Definition Multimedia Interface", is the consumer electronic industry's first connection capable of transmitting uncompressed digital audio/video signals. Components featuring HDMI can transmit both digital audio and video over one convenient cable, replacing the tangled mess that resides behind many home theater components. HDMI also offers improved quality over traditional analog connections thanks to all-digital transmission. Digital sources like DVDs and HDTV programming can now be transferred digitally from source to display without analog conversions that can degrade the original signal.

Unlike the HDMI interface, DVI only handles digital video. Through the use of an adapter, a DVI device can be connected to an HDMI device, but only video content can be transmitted. The audio signal would have to be transmitted through other methods such as analog RCA outputs or an optical digital output.

4. What's the difference between 720p and 1080i HDTV broadcasts? Does my CRT projection HDTV support both?
HDTV signals can be broadcast in either 720p and 1080i. It's up to the broadcaster which signal format to use, and both have their benefits. Our CRT projection HDTVs display 1080i signals in their native format. For 720p broadcasts, you can use the settings on your HDTV set-top tuner, cable box, or satellite tuner to convert a 720p signal into a 1080i signal that your TV can display.

btn_top_gold.gif spacer.gif line_gold.gif spacer.gif spacer.gif5. Why do I still see black bars on my widescreen TV when viewing certain widescreen DVDs and HDTV broadcasts?
Your widescreen TV has an aspect ratio of 16:9 (1.78:1), which is the aspect ratio of HDTV. However, movies are filmed at several different aspect ratios, including 2.35:1. Also referred to as "scope", 2.35:1 is a very panoramic aspect ratio that provides a wide field of view in the theater. Scope is much wider than your widescreen TV, so it still requires the use of letterboxing ("black bars") to fit the entire image on screen. Some TVs and DVD players have a zoom function that allows you to blow up the image so it fills the screen, but the sides of the image must be cropped in order to do so.

6. What will 4:3 broadcasts and DVDs look like on a widescreen TV?
There are multiple settings for adjusting the appearance of 4:3 material on Panasonic widescreen TVs. It can be viewed with black bars on the sides, preserving the way it was originally intended to be viewed. Some viewers find the black bars distracting, so they might prefer one of the stretch modes that lets you fill the entire TV screen with the image. One such mode is the JUST (justify) mode, which stretches only the outer portion of the picture while leaving the center untouched.
