    It is now 6.30 EST and I did not receive the copy of the Service Manual referred to in your e-mail to access page 34.



    Just to confirm my e-mail address on file is HOBSONUSA@GMAIL.COM.



    Would it be possible to resend this to me. Many thanks, Paul H.

    O.K. I have now received the Service Manual and page 34...thank you.



    Which adjustment do I use to adjust the height of the picture - there seems to be 4 different adjustments that refer to Verical ? My problem is that the picture seems too big for the screen as some wording falls off the bottom on 'Normal' picture sizing.



    Thanks, Paul H.

HI,
Yes, you can adjust picture height (vertical size) in service mode. Service mode can be achieved by pressing few buttons on remote but you have to be very very careful because any wrong button push could mess with stored data.
I have service manual copy of PT-47WX42 and it has all necessary details about service mode entry, data handling/ adjustment, save data and exist service mode procedure on page-34
Let me know your email address to send that copy.
Thanks.

    Need to adjust VSIZE only to reduce height of picture.
    Check below image taken from page-35, VSIZE is marked.
    Please be careful while adjusting data in service mode, specially Convergence area.
    Thanks.

The 3 blinks is indicating the set has shut down due to the convergence circuits. You can get the convergence repair kit for your model from www.tvrepairworld.com the kit contains the parts and the CD with repair instructions.

I have a Panasonic HDTV Projection PT-47WX42 with double imaging.


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

Picture doesn't work..Panasonic 47 inch TV PT-47WX42


Dood, if you really needed a new mother board for your TV the biggest problem on your hands would be finding the replacement.  The motherboard is so easy to remove it would make you laugh.  I think it has four clip bridges and four of five screws.  You seperate the clip bridges, take the screws off and maybe take a picture of the cables so you remember where to plug them in and you're done.  Like I said, take a snap shot so you dont forget where to put your cables back in.
