I have the same problem as the previous post, but with the blue setting. The solution said it was a bad amp or resistor and I have no idea what either of those are or how to fx them. Can someone please educate me on this?
After 5 years of flawless operation my blue convergence suddenly went way out of whack. I have been quoted a price of $300-$350. Is this reasonable?

Re: Panasonic PT-53WX52 blue convergence problem
Scotta, when the convergence IC`s fail it will sometimes eat a few of the support resistors, If your not proficient at soldering work then I would advise you to call a tech, 5 years is about normal for convergence IC failure.
As for 300-350 it really makes a big difference where you live, a service tech in NYC has to charge a lot more than a tech in a small town, His or Her overhead is waay higher, remember you can shop around for a good price, any professional tv tech can do this job. If you want a ballpark to think about heres what I would charge and I`m in a medium size town in Florida $260 + 6% sales tax. Hope this helps ya, Happy Holidays

Its more likely that the convergence ICs have failed which is causing the blue not to be adjustable. The PT47WX52 convergence repair kit works for your model as well and is available from www.tvrepairworld.com the kit contains the parts and the CD with instructions.
There are bad solder connections on the Convergence Amp IC's. When you moved it , the connections that were loose are now disconnected. Resolder the pins on these IC's and you should be ready to watch TV again.
i think your convergance amp ic are bad. The
STKs are common and if you have an experienced electronics tech around
they can replace them for much less money but the tech must have
advanced soldering and IC exchange experience.
The STK ics, two of them, can be purchased on line for around $20 to $40 each.
Partstore has two models available - one for around $40 and another for around $55.
The part number is STK392-110 and if you google you can find them for
as little as $6/each but I don't recommend the cheap ones as they are
It takes a good tech around 3 or 3 hours to take the old ones out and
solder in the new ones. Also, it is likely one or two resistors are
burnt and will need replacing as well.
Don not run the tv till you have it fix you will cause more damage! http://home.earthlink.net/~oleg.filippov/ConvergenceFix.htm http://cmpalmer.blogspot.com/2006/11/fixing-my-own-tv-part-ii.html
