Question about Panasonic PT-53WX42 53" Rear Projection Television
I have a 3 yr old PT-53WX42F and the picture just all of a sudden went crazy. It is really distorted and the colors are off. Yellow and Red seem to be standing out more. The picture at the top and bottom are the worse and it is making everything look double. Any one know what the problem is and where I can buy parts.
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
You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. 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 have had my PT-53WX42 for almost 8 years. I just got a phone call from my GF that she was watching it and it just turned itself off. To get it back on, she has to unplug and replug it, however, it just turned back off within seconds. Has anyone had this problem before? If so, what is the problem/fix?
