Re: help pt-51hx41e

The likely common problem that causes that symptom are three electrolytic capacitors. C840 is a 3300mf/35v and the ohter two C762 & C836 are somethimes questionable so you may want to measure them first with an ESR meter.
If you locate and replace them let me know how it turns out...

Panasonic projection lcd pt-44lcx65 pink wavy lines

The problem is the computer in the TV is set to hold data for 2500 "On/Offs" Once you turn the TV on and off 2500 times, the dots start to appear as the computer cannot store anymore date. Call Panasonic, they will send a tech to your house for free and reset the computer and update it at the same time from 2500 to 1 million on/offs so it wont happen again. It takes maybe 10 mins to complete.

Hope this helps.

The convergence amps have most likely failed. That unit takes two STK392-110 (Sanyo) amps. For more reliability I'd have them changed using an STK392-150. They have a greater amperage and higher heat tolerance.
It's clearly a job that you want a qualified shop to do.. Call around and get some off-the-cuff estimates on what they charge to change out the convergence amps and tell them that you would prefer they use the 150's instead of the 110's.. They'll probably wonder how qualified you are. :)

PT 47 convergence IC's? box? both?

Always suspect the IC's first, digital convergence prblems are actually pretty rare IC's go everyday. I'd check partsore .com Generics usually work fine, they are probably STK392-110's but check to make sure.
