Question about Panasonic PT-53WX52 53" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Picture quality My 51 inch Panasonic rear projection TV looks like the picture is in 3 D. I was told by the store where i bought it that it was some kind of board and it would cost about $300 for the part and another $150. to install and adjust the set. I have it sitting in my home office unplugged as the new 6x9 format is the out and i am not willing to spend that kind of money on an outdated TV I had a bend in the bottom left had corner, like a half-,moon of different colors. I bought a service manual and tried to adjust it and now it looks worse than when I started. The manual was well worth the money $23 and it show how to fix it it you need to change anything. I think that I can adjust it out but it has been a lot of work so far. I am looking to find out if there is a reset button for the convergence. I will let you know if I find out how to fix it.

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 not reliable.

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!

Green Background with red wavy lines


Projection TV sets have two very common problems listed below.

Problem #1) Convergence


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture
