Question about Panasonic PT-53WX53 53" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

2 Answers

Same problem with my PT-53WX54

I came home today and my wife said something was wrong with the TV. I looked at it and it seemed to be a convergence problem. So, I tried adjusting the convergence with the remote. When the vertical was almost at the mark, the picture went black. It hasn't come on since (a couple of hours). When I do turn it on the light just comes on and stays lit - no blinking. I was thinking of getting the convergence IC's changed, but I would feel better if it would at least turn on to the same crappy picture it had. Any ideas? The 13" TV is a bummer...

    Well, we replaced the convergence IC's today. Removed the old ones and installed the new ones. Had my cousin helping to double (triple) check everything - all the solder joints, the whole thing. Anyway, we got everything plugged back in and turned it on and there's no screen - just black. The tubes don't fire up and the power light on the front glows steady - no blinking. Any ideas? Could it still be a bad resistor? We checked all the ones around the IC's and they looked good.

Make sure you check the six 2.2 ohm resistors near the convergence IC's. Don't just look at them, test them with a multimeter and confirm that they are about 2.2 ohms, +/- 5% or whatever the tolerance is.

Picture Stretch on Panasonic PT-53WX54


Usually this is an indication of a failing capacitor in the vertical circuit. Have those been checked? I would look for 100ufd caps in the vertical circuit. Check with the tech.
