Question about Panasonic PT-53TW53 53" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

Red convergence is off

Hi, I am having a problem with my 53tw53p rear projection panasonic HDTV. After reading posts about this issue it seams that the convergence IC's are out of whack, my picture has a red bow and is blured. I tryed to allign the crosshairs but I have no luck with the red as it is on a angle and won't move to line up. Please help me and tell me what I should do to try and fix this problem...a local repair store says $300-$500 to fix it and I don't have that kind of money and the TV is only worth around that. Please Help!!

Thanks,
Andy

    Yes the crosshairs do move but I can't allign them because they move on a angle and they won't line up.

    i have the same problem as phillyfan36 i can move all colored crosshairs but the red crosshairs are angled and wont line up with the other crosshairs. does this mean the ics are okay and maybe a resistor is the problem.

Does the crosshairs move up and down on red... do they move side to side.... if they fail to move at all then the ics must be bad and will have to be replaced.. unless your technical(xperience in solder techniques or know someone that is it will cost you about that. then after that you have to align the set which can be tricky.
sorry

Missing red composite signal on panasonic pt-47wx52cf


Check your jacks and cables.

The RED jack is either (1) left or right channel AUDIO signal or (2) the RED color channel of an RGB (Red, Green, Blue) COMPONENT video signal.

Yellow is the COMPOSITE video signal.

Panasonic cinema vision pt-53wx54j does not turn on. red power led blinks 3 times.


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. 3 blinks means convergence output failure and to resolve this you’ll need to change the convergence chips which are located behind the black heat sink; you can see once you open the back off the TV. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.

Thanks

The convergence ICs have failed. You will need to install a convergence repair kit. You can get the convergence repair kit for your model Panasonic from www.tvrepairworld.com which contains both of the Convergence ICs , the associated resistors and the cD with detailed repair instructions.

Not a fix for do-it-yourselfers, but check with Panasonic as there is a new fix. Requires tech to come and reprogram the eprom (I think).
Cheaper than a new optic board.

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?
