Question about Panasonic PT-53WX42 53" Rear Projection Television
Yes, I have and idea, and it has nothing to do with the aspect ratio. One of the convergence output IC's has failed. This is a very common failure with all projection sets. Average repair cost by a reputable repair shop is around $200 to $300 depending on where you live. BTW that set is well worth the repair cost.

Your TV may have a convergence failure. ( common problem )
Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem
Here is a quick test....
Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.
Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.
You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.
If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.
You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses. Its a fairly easy DIY job or you can call in a pro. If you want to do the repair yourself check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, thermal paste, email/phone support, etc.
