Replace the convergence ICs. They are located on a large aluminum heat sink with STK numbers stamped on them. They cost about 10.00 each. They have to be soldered in. Let me know if you need anything further.

I have a panasonic lumix DMC FZ 45 and I cannot figure out how to take panoramic pictures. When I take pictures of the room or view it just keeps saying next, retake and exit. Can you help please?

Hi. In Scene>panorama assist, a grid is shown on screen and things get confusing!

1. The initial choice needs to be made between

left >right (for a sequence of shots made while 'panning' towards the right)

right >left.

down >up.

up >down.

e.g. if 'left >right' is selected:-

2. After the first shot has been taken, a preview is displayed without the grid.
- the 1st shot can be cancelled with 'retake', or saved for the sequence with 'next'.

3. If 'next' was selected a 'ghost', of what was in the right hand panel of the 1st image, will be shown on the left as an overlay in the LCD display, together with the grid.

The camera can now be panned to the right to try to align the ghost of the right part of the 1st shot with the left side of the new view. The 2nd shot can now be taken,

The combined image is shown, without the grid, which may or may not show good alignment of the 1st and 2nd images - so you can choose to 'retake' the 2nd image, or choose 'next' again.

If you choose 'next', it's back to no.3, above

....and so on until you choose exit, when the sequence can be transfered to PC for stitching with an image editing program.

Hope that helps!

I have a Panasonic PT-53WX54J that will not Converge

you need to replace or have professional convergence amplifiiers. If know how to desolder and solder you could repair yourself or in home professional tv repairperson will cost you $275-$400. The convergence adjustments via remote are half the battle the IC's loose clarity over time.

Convergence -manual

Replace the convergence amps and test and replace any or all of the 2.2ohm resistors in the yoke return path out in front of the amps. This unit takes two STK392-110 Sanyo originals, DO NOT GET CHINESE KNOCK-OFFS... Buy them from Acme sales out of Florida and you can be assured they're originals.

GHOST: May be described as "Out of Convergence" but ghost is still attached to main image.
A "ghost image" appearing to the left or right of images in the picture. Can be varying shades of a primary color (red, green, or blue) as well as gray. Can easily be seen in the 4 x 3 mode, at the edges of the picture.

To correct the problem, please do as follows:
  1. Access I2C Menu. (See page 57 of the Service Manual).
  1. To enter the I2C Service Menu, with power off, (on the front control panel) press and hold the INPUT button. Then press the POWER button for two seconds. The following Service Menu will appear.

  • Be sure to press SELECT after each change to SAVE the new Data.

  1. Using the Remote Control joy stick, scroll down to next page (see Figure 2) until LCD ADJUST is highlighted.
03b_ghost_image02.gif Figure 2
  1. Move the joy stick to the right to cursor right once. The next page will appear with the word GHOST highlighted.
  2. Cursor right again, and a white screen will appear with a BLACK SQUARE in the center, as in Figure 3. You will see LCD ADJUST, followed by “SHP” and a number (value).
Figure 3

  1. If the unit is out of adjustment, you will see a gray ghost on either side of the black square. Move the joystick to the right or to the left until the ghost disappears. The number values will change up or down.
    • If the ghost adjustment is off with a lower value, there will be a ghost to the left of the square.
    • If the ghost adjustment is off with a higher value, there will be a ghost to the right of the square.
  2. Once you get the square to look good without ghosts, press "SELECT" to save any data values that have been changed.
  3. Press the "EXIT" button three times to return to normal picture.
  4. Adjustment is completed
