    I found out that this model doesn't have a screen shield.. Does that mean that I need to just buy the Fresnel (rear) if mine is cracked?

If you just need the screen filter ( clear one ) you'll have to check with a local tv repair shop and see if they have one. If that's what you need, you don't have to buy that one, just remove it and throw it away.The screen protector does not effect your picture quality. You have to be careful not to damage the 2 part #'s I gave you from that point on if you don't use the clear protector.

    Ok, the first one you see is the Lenticular ( front ) ( vertical grooves ) the one behind that, the one you can't see is the Fresnel ( rear ) (smooth surface). So you decide which one is broken. If you are replacing the rear, when you look at it from the backside you will see a circular pattern which will not be dead center, so make sure with the new one the swirl is in the same position either closer to the top or closer towards the bottom. Try not to get any lint, dust, or de-bree between the two, it will show in the picture then you have to separate them again and get the junk out. Good Luck !

Set is getting old and if Panasonic does not have them (looking at about 400 for all three) Google the model number with "screens" etc to see if someone on internet has replacements.

PT-53WX42F Panasonic Cinemavision Fresnel / Lenticular screens for cheap

That was an expensive mistake, sorry to hear about it.

I checked with the factory and not all 3 parts you need are available any more... Unless you can find someone junking a similar set with a bad chassis, you may have difficulty fixing your's.

Good luck in your search.

Need to replace the convergence amps and any 2.2 ohm resistors in the return. That unit takes two STK392-110 Sanyo amps - but for greater reliability use STK392-150's and get them, from some place like ACME to be insured their not chineese knock-offs..

PT-53WX42 IC replacement

The two convergence IC's are generic part# STK392-110 and Panasonic part# C5AA00000203. Also check for burnt or discolored resistors nearby. Since this is such an easy repair,a schematic is not necessary....The hardest part is identifying the burnt resistors and aligning the green convergence in the service menu.
