Panasonic PT-53TW53 53 Convergence?

I turned on my Panny this morning and the whole screen is squashed like a pin cusion leaving around 4 inches on all sides.  I got into the service menu since I've done this before to make MINOR adjustments but when I make any adjustments and it just gets worse.  Any ideas? How much?

Code6 on panny pt53x54j built 2004

lift the convergence yoke plugs off of the signal pcb one at a time and turn the set on. if unit powers up and stays on then replace the convergence ic's. expect the picture to be distorted while troubleshooting and don't let it stay on long if it fires up. stk-392-110 are the ic's you would need along with some heat sink compound. also check for a burned m.o.v. on the deflection pcb just in case.

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 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.

Cannot adjust convergence, screen has rainbow effect

You probably need to change out the semiconductors. The parts are STK392-110. There are two of them, one for horizontal and one for vertical. Search it online more.
