1 Answer

Pt-53TW53....tv comes on but everything has a red double or shadow..on the convergence page the red cross is way off the mark and moves some but nowhere near where it should be..the red cross starts to bend as you move it...was told it could possibly be a convergence amp?

GO INTO THE CUSTOMER MENU AND SELECT CONVERGENCE--do not adjust the green which is the first option some of these sets offer---if you find red or blue are skewed and or will not adjust you have a CONVERGENCE circuit problem.

Considering if this is the case, total parts cost for the repair will be under 30 dollars if you can do it yourself, you can save the set and a lot of money--most shops get 300 or more for this type of repair.

I HAVE START TO FINISH, STEP BY STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS FOR THIS TYPE OF REPAIR IN THESE SETS--they tell you everything you will need and how to do it

I can tell you the best place to buy the chips and I will help you if you have problems during the repair.

I have repaired hundreds of these sets with convergence problems--usual repair takes about a hour---longer if you are doing it the first time.

Panasonic PT-53TW53; Red shadows appear and then the t.v. shuts down.


The convergence output IC's have failed. Only fix is to replace them. These are large amplifier IC's bolted to heatsinks and have a high failure rate in all projection sets.

Shadows and text curved. Double images


The convergence IC's need to be replaced. The generic part # on them is STK392-110. This is not easily done by yourself.

Convergence problem


I can't imagine how you would have enough electrical contact on the STK110s without soldering them in place, so I would think you need to solder them before testing further. Running the TV without them soldered in place and properly heat-sinked could cause additional damage to the TV and/or other components.

Convergence


either you missed one or missed a burned out resister, they are the slightly larger resisters in the same area. double check you didnt leave a pin above the board and cross soldered one.

Has anyone had problems with connecting an 'HDMI to HDMI + SPDIF + RCA L / R Audio Extractor Converter (HDMI input,HDMI+ Audio output)' to a Panasonic PT-53TW53? I have a TiVo Premiere hooked up to my Panasonic PT-53TW53. I use the HDMI out, and RCA R+L outputs on the TiVo, and hook up to the digital in connections on the TV. The conversion of the HDMI out is via an HDMI to DVI cable. This has worked perfectly for years, but recently I wanted to disconnect the TiVo and replace with my Roku or Amazon Fire TV. Both have a single HDMI output. So I purchased an AGPtek HDMI to HDMI + SPDIF + RCA L / R Audio Extractor Converter (HDMI input, HDMI+ Audio output) box, hooking up the HDMI output from the Roku or Fire TV to the input on the extractor/converter, and simply disconnecting the HDMI to DVI and RCA R+L outputs from the TiVo, and plugging them into the outputs on the converter/extractor. The converter/extractor has a 3 position switch: PASS, 2CH audio, or 5.1CH (via and SPDIF or Toslink cable). I have had 2 of these converter/extractors, and with both the Roku and Fire TV I got the same results with both converter/extractors: With the switch on 2CH, which is where I understand I should get HDMI video and 2CH RCA audio, all I get is the RCA audio. No video. If I switch to PASS I get video with no audio. Of course on the 5.1 setting I get nothing, since the TV does not support SPDIF. Yet I see reviews all over Amazon indicating folks are using this converter/extractor for this very purpose, and it is working fine. I can't possibly imagine that it is some sort of incompatibility issue with the TV, since the TiVo has worked (and continues to) fine for years. Any ideas?
