Question about Panasonic PT-47WX53 47" Rear Projection HDTV
Hi all, I have a Panasonic 47WX53 47" (4 years old) that all of the sudden developed a shift in the Red projection to the left and a slight curve to the left at the bottom. Tried to use the convergence menu to correct, but doesn't shift far enough to correct. I called the local service shop and they gave an estimate of between $300 and $500 to fix. I have messed with electronics for years and for that kind of $$, I will try to fix it myself. I've read a couple of other posts with a simular problem that have suggested to replace the "Convergence Box". I've looked inside the unit, but don't see a "Box". I do, however, see the two convergence IC chips. Is this what they are refering too? I looked the part# up on MCM Electronics and it costs about $20. Might be an adventure to change if thats the problem. If anyone has a solution to this problem, or has had the same problem, please post a reply. I have a blue shadow and too much yellow on the right side of the screen. I've tried to use the manual convergence adjustments in the setup screen but the blue won't line up properly on #'s 2, 3, 6, 8, and 9. The blue cross won't go far enough to the right, especially on #'s 3 , 6, and 9. I've taken the back panel off the TV but am not sure where the convergence IC's are. Does anyone have some kind of a step by step instructions on how to replace the IC's? I've never done this type of work but am pretty handy, besides I can't really afford to pay a repair service.
