The problem that you are describing sounds like you have bad convergence IC’s. These are usually on large heat sinks on the circuit boards and they will have numbers like STK-XXX on them. My suggestion is to call a local servicer to have the set checked out. If you want to repair the set yourself, let me know and I can try to locate the IC’s for you.
I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue. If you need further assistance, please post back with a comment to this thread.

Hello, I have a 53-inch Panasonic PT-53WX42F TV, and it refuses to turn on. No picture, no sound. All it does is the tiny red power light blinks 3 times repeatedly. Can I fix this myself? What parts do I...


Thats a convergence failure when the led blinks 3 times. Your model uses the PT47WX42 convergence repair kit available from www.tvrepairworld.com the kit contains the parts and the CD with instructions for the repair.

Strong colors, specifically those in the red


it seems you are experimenting a light engine problem.This is how your tv works: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZLLHnQ4y-wo So basically the 3 Lcd chips that create the colors and image is going bad and thats why you get that color discoloration.Contact maker or look for your light engine online.

Sounds like your convergence chips are going. Unless you are real handy with soldering iron I would suggest having a tv repair shop service it(probably cost $200-300). If you are handy then I believe the chips you need are Sanyo STK392-110. There should be 2 of them. be careful if you order them online, there are lots of chinese knock-offs out there.

It's called tearing and it's likely in the HV circuit, possibly the FBT or splitter. Won't go into any greater detail than that, other than to say it's time to call the technician. Voltages in that circuit can make you VERY dead...

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. 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.
