How to do convergence on a PT-53WX53

I bought the unit roughly 3-4 years ago, I've done the regular convergence settings over the years but at one point it was really getting bad and luckily for me I had gotten the extended plan on it. I called a tech came by and used my remote only yo get into a different or extended menu to complete a more detailed convergence setting that I can't access.  My extended plan will end in 1-2 years and wanted to know how I can do it myself instead of calling a tech who's gonna charge me for the service when my plan is over.


Anybody can tell me how?

Re: How to do convergence on a PT-53WX53

Hello Yann,
Please be advised that doing the convergence in service mode is a very complicated process. This could mess up your TV even more. The best TV tech out there finds doing convergence a Headache. Doing convergence is part of the repair that most TV tech fears. Email me if you still want it. I will not post here for the general public.

Best regards

Pt-53wx53 Panasonic Projection TV Turns off

OK< likely one of the new chips are bad or when soldered in you shorted pins at that time----3 blinks is short protection and you are going to find ONE of the light blue 2.2 ohm resistors is open (usually discolored in middle).

Having changed hundreds of chips in this model once in a while you get a new one that is bad---replace both again.

How did you get at them----remove the board or pull the light box?

Power light blinks 3 times and cut off

The 3 blinks of the power indicator is indicating that the set has shut down due to failed convergence. The PT53WX53 convergence repair kit from will usually solve that issue. The kit contains the two Convergence ICs , heat sink paste and the low ohm resistors . The kit also contains the CD with complete repair instructions.

Convergence board

There is no substitution part for the entire board in that unit, but my question is why are they having to replace the entire board - did it burn?? How about just sending it in to PTS Electronics and having the board rebuilt??

Replace Ic7001 and Ic7002 the convergence amps in this unit. Both are STK392-110 Sanyo built Ic's and fairly inexpensive. If you're not at all sure how to replace these take it to a qualified shop. And when you're calling around shopping ask what they charge to replace the convergence amps in these units.
Also take the unit to them rather than pay the pickup and delivery charge, that will save a few bucks.
Have a great day!

Power supply/convergence issue...

Your Projo is a complicated piece of equipment, involving 3 picture tubes (like 3 tv's), convergence failures are extremely common, I dont think $550 is totally unreasonable, but I dont think it is a power supply issue if it is just effecting 1 color, usually it would cost around $100 parts $300 labor to repair, might be a little high, I suppose they are also charging you for pickup and delivery, I hate taking sets into office as that sometimes jars stuff loose or cracks boards.
