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!!

Re: red convergence is off

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.

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.


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.

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.
