Panasonic PT-53WX53G screen got larger, corners are warped

I have one of these TV's, and just all of a sudden the screen (picture) got larger and the corners are all warped. You can't see the ticker on CNN for example. I have tried to adjust the size, i.e. FULL, ZOOM, JUST and it stays HUGE. I tried to re-converge, that doesn't help. We have only had it 3 years!!!

How do I change the bulb in a cinemavision Panasonic tv model # PT-53WX53G?

That model does not use a bulb---it has 3 picture tubes that rarely fail.

Let me know what the set is doing.

If dead, the power light on the front should blink a code like 3 blinks, pause and repeat it over and over---

Ghosting in Red, Green and blue

The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer2_bing.gif Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get a convergenece repair kit with instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2
Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture
