Re: PT-53WX52

Your TV most likely has a Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem

  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site They have put together convergence repair kits for most models.

The kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, thermal paste, etc. Everything you will need to do the repair yourself.

I own a Panasonic HDTV projection monitor PT-47WX42C I am having convergence/warping issues; There is a large green/red curve in the bottom rear of screen about 4 inches tall, and stretching over more...

Replace the convergence ICs they will be big black ICs and will have Part number on them example STK392-110
Mats Electronics has them for 9.95 each you will need 2 .

Projection HDTV Pansonic 47" Curving blue and green colors on top and bottom of screen.

You will need to replace your two convergence I.C.s.They are two large IC mounted on a large aluminum heat sink.Replace both,look for any burned resistors near them,replace those if needed,and readjust your convergence. Good Luck

Let me know if you need any further help

There are color spots all over screen-pt-61lcx35

This, sadly is getting to be a very common problem with all Projection LCD TV's
Colored Blotches on an LCD Projection TV are usually caused by defects or marks on filters or lenses or one of the LCD panels themselves which are all located in the light engine (or optical block) First confirm that the lamp or main lens is not discolored by removing the lamp (unplug set and let cool before removing!) and inspecting the lamp itself and the lens that it shine onto. The light engine is an expensive part ($600-$1200) to replace and requires major disassembly. Get an estimate -Be sure to vote/rate me if this helped Thanks!

Green convergence on Panasonic PT-53WX42 is not ligning up...

Does not sound like the chips are bad.
What you need to adjust is "SKEW". You need to enter "service Mode" then go into "Coarse Convergence". Skew can be adjusted for all 3 colors. Unless you have the service manual, these corrections should not be attempted.

To clean the INSIDE of the screen, you really have to disassemble the TV. Remove all the screws that hold the "back" ( the piece with the mirror) to the front (screen) assembly.
The screen can be cleaned with a solution of diluted isopropyl alcohol, no more than a 50% solution. Drugstores will carry it, but it might be 70%-90%. Just dilute with distilled water (not tap water as it contains minerals). Personally I have used 70% with no ill side effects but 50% is recommended.
