Picture unstable I have a PT-61HX41 rear projection Panasonic TV. Recently the picture started jumping and 2" black horizontal lines appear at the top and bottom of the screen. The picture will return to normal and within minutes become unstable again. Does anyone have an idea of what the problem is and what parts need replacing?

I have a panasonic pt-53wx54 picture went black with a view vertical color lines then they went and it's now just black. sound is good no picture.. what do i need to do? thanks so much

This is one of several models that had a common problem.

If set comes on with sound and you after a minute or two see a faint odd band of noise top to bottom on the screen to the right side C509 which is a .047 cap at 200 volts is bad.

Cap is seen in attached photo(location marked and cap here gone).

The cap when you locate it from the C509 number which is on top and bottom of board may have a crack or not---it is the cause of this problem.

There is a hard way and a easy way to get at it--let me know and I will explain.

3.00 part....................

Pencil is point to location on Right side board seen from right side.


There are several brown caps here and some plugs here are removed.

I would not try operation of the set in this condition too long.

There is a yellow, and blue line going across the bottom of the screen, and it creates a double picture on the TV.

It sounds like the typical convergence failure. Two IC's will need replaced and look for any open resistors in the proximity of those chips. Part# stk392-110 for IC's

Picture goes away on my DLP TV

that is an overheating problem. With the TV unpluged clean and or vacuum the internal tubes. Not the lamp though. Do not touch the lamp as any oils on your hands will cause a hot spot and the expensive lamp will fail.

Horizontal Green Convergence line on PT-47WX49 is offset to the left 1-2" and can not be ajusted back. The center of the TV viewing picture is the only portion that appears normal.

you will need to replace the convergence ICs and feed resistors. You can get the convergence repair kit for your model at the following link. The kit contains the parts and a CD with the instructions on how to do the repair.
