Question about Panasonic PT-47WX42 47" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Woodgrain effect lines on picture

Took to repair shop, tech said after two days of troubleshooting, he took signal board out of 2nd TV and put in mine, and the picture was great. Claims components cannot be replaced on the signal board and will contact Panasonic for price of new signal board on Monday. Also said there is a place in Ohio that rebuilds Panasonic boards which may be cheaper. Any comments or sources of signal boards?

    "This site" turns out to be Slinteriors' site. He shipped me a dead board in high-static bubble wrap.

    On my original board, I found if I used component cooler spray on the front convergence chip, the picture would look good for a second or two then go back to the lines across the screen. I pulled the signal board and resoldered the convergence chips, and the lines across the screen are consistant now (before, they started far apart, and got closer and closer as the set warms up. When prob first started, after five minutes warmup the picture was good.)

    I ordered new convergence chips and changed both, The picture is slightly better, still has lines, but after 30 to 40 minutes, the set shuts off with the three blinks of the front panel red light, indicating convergence circuit problems. Should I replace the resistors, or ?? By the way, after resoldering the convergence chips the first time, the circuit cooler spray had no effect on the picture.

Fix lcd tv

You need to dertermine if the power board failing charred the connectors, or if a differeb=nt component failed which charred the connectors and took out the power board. This will require component level testing. i suggest taking it in to the repair shop.
However, i would price shop a comparable replacement TV before fixing a 4 year old Insignia. it may be more cost effective to just replace it.

I think your problem is in the tuner, a metal box located near the antenna input. This tuner can be removed and serviced. Sometimes the tuner DC supply line is unstable due to a filter capacitor or zener diode generally rated 33V (most common) and should be the first step in troubleshooting process.

Static & Picture Loss via Coaxial Cable Input Only on Sony FD Trinitron WEGA XV-36XBR450

The problem may be in the tuner or associated circuit. Firt check the DC supply line to the tuner. This circuit has a limiting resistor (15K 3W) and a 33V zener diode. If these are OK the tuner is faulty and should be removed (sometimes it comes on a separated board attached to the main board) and serviced.

We have a toshiba projection tv 50H72. we are getting picture distortions of lines verticle & horizontal. convergence has been rest, the only way to get rid of the squiggly lines is to turn tv off...

There is a common problem with this particular model that involves what is known as the"Hypermodle" this is a cuircit board that controls signal processing. The symptoms you describe sounds similar to this problem. This board has 11 very small parts call capacitors,that go faulty over time and get worse with more time. Ideally replaceing this board was the right thing to do in the past however since this was a common occurance the boards quickly became in short supply. Toshiba issued a Service bulliteen to shops on how to repair them. I repaired 2 of them a month at the shop. Now this is a repair that only the most experience tech should attempt. very small parts and easy to damage if not done right. Our shop generally charged around 250 to do this repair. most of the cost was in labor. but always ask if they have done this repair before.

May be you went to the wrong place, find another repair shop where they work that brand and type of tv. Doubtless, some parts are discontinued, but they will take parts of another equipment that are dismantled. Good luck.

Convergence problem ,Help Please

Something is not right here. Is there any possibility that you can get the circuit designation (Rxxx) of the resistors that were "incorrect"? I am not aware of anything like this that can cause the "memory to be erased". The only memory in that area would be the factory convergence settings which can be modified from the service menu. Please try to supply the resistor IDs and I'll check on this.

53 inch rear projection tv bowed piture

THis set is notorus..bad to converge at the shop seting the convergence takes up alot of my time... you may have to get a technician to converge in factory or service model.. this is something a non tech should not due "you can mess it up good" there may be a convergence amplifer board problem too. suggest getting a tech to chech it out. IF you can converge at all is a good sign that it might just be adjustment. average repair for this is 100 to 200

On alot of these Toshiba TV sets, there is a fuse called F860 that will blow and the light will flash because of bad solder connections on C 810, and C 809, on the negitave terminal. I have seen many of these boards condemed by non-authorized Toshiba repair shops. Good Luck
