Question about Televison & Video

1 Answer

My panasonic PT-47wxc43g projection tv has developed shrinkage in the middle of the screen on both the top and bottom. The picture has an hourglass on its side appearance. The picture is now also too large for the screen and banners and such are only partially visible. When I attempt to adjust the covergence, the red crosses appear tipped and cannot be lined up. Is there an adjustment to correct this?

    Thanks kevin000. I had a suspicion that was the problem. I just had it in the shop last fall for a similar problem and your estimate of $400 is right on the money. I was hoping for better news. Vacation in 2 weeks. TV's gonna have to wait.

This could be a problem in the convergence board which will cost of repair would range 400.00 or so.
You can get the convergence repair kit at the following link which contains the parts and step by step detailed instructions.

My picture faded off the screen


Need to see if you're getting high voltage. See if you have 130v dc on the collector of the horizontal output transistor.

I have a problem with my Tv pt-47wx42


Your symptoms sounds like a damaged convergence IC.

There are two and sometimes three very large IC’s that control the convergence in a big screen set. They are secured to a very large aluminum heat sink.

If your colors line up in the middle of the set and at the top but the picture is concave then you may have a faulty component in the pincushion circuit. When this circuit fails the picture will have an hourglass shape to it with black in the middle on the sides, or you will see square objects as hourglass shapes. If it is like you described and it is in the top and bottom, you may have a problem in the top and bottom pincushion circuit.

You stated that the charge will be $80.00 to diagnose this problem, I would ask if the diagnostic applies to the repair, if you choose to repair the set.
I have seen this type of repair run from $250.00 - $350.00.

If one of the convergence IC’s are found to be bad, I would replace them both, if one has gone bad the other may go soon and it should only add the cost of the part to the repair.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

Small strip of video (about 3 in wide) in the middle of the scree


Just to be sure that I send you in the correct direction, does this strip look like a shrunken picture with no height? In other words is it a horizontal bar?

Thanks,
Dan
