    We have the same model- PT-47WX53G- Panasonic high def. projection tv and experienced the same problem after trying to manually adjust/align the images. The next time we turned on the tv we noticed the closed captioning was doubled and red/green colors separated out, especially on the bottom left part of the tv screen.

First of all are you sure you were in the factory menu this step requires alot of known how!!!!!! By using your hand unit only customer controls can be reached unless you know factory menu setup. Which starts like this ,make sure antenna to cable then go to menu set sleep timer to 30 mins exit out now enter ch 124 then press v- down on tv you should now see on top CHK ,also these sets have double convergence patterens.if you were in factory set up for more information look in techassist/09-2005 .let me know if you still need help.

    I have checked for info in but did not find information pertaining the issue for this model. I have followed your instructions for reseting to factory settings and did accomplish up to where i did see the CHK on top. I just dont know what is supposed to happen after that or if I have to do additional settings......would you please let me know if the factory reset was complete after your last instruction of seeing CHK on top of the screen?

PT-47WX53G. TV got moved. Unable to move blue

The convergence ICs have failed which is very common when the set has been moved as a wek IC wont allow the color to be moved. You can get the PT52WX53G convergence repair kit from which is the correct one for your model. The kit contains the parts and the CD with repair instructions.

Just bought a PANASONIC PT-47WX53G On ebay for what I thought was a steal. It was explained that somehow someone got into the service menu and messed something up with the convergence on the green gun....

You can try restoring to factory defaults, and you can try the manual convergence option. If the manual convergence fails to reset (as in, the crosshairs physically will not move), then the convergence board is bad, and will need to be replaced or repaired (if you are a good circuit solderer).
