Have a panasonic PT-47WX54j rear projection tv. For the past few days, I can't seem to fine tune the color/tint/bright/sharpness of the picture. Picture looks somewhat hazy and lacking good contrast. Any suggestions?

Convergence problems. If they can't be fixed from the setting on the menu then the convergence board's IC's are faulty and must be replaced. This is a job for someone who has some electronics experience.
Try to reset first if nothing happens we proceed another solution;
Resetting the TV
Some TVs have a reset button. If available and accessible, try using the reset buttons before using the steps below. Using the reset buttons can saved time. 1.Unplug the TV power cord from the power outlet for 3 - 4 hours. 2.Unplug any connected devices (DVD, Set-top boxes, etc...) 3.Press and hold the TV power button for five seconds. 4.Plug the TV power cord back into the power outlet and turn on the TV. 5.Open the on-screen menu to confirm that the TV is responding again. 6.Turn off the TV and reconnect the devices. 7.Turn on the TV.
You dont need codes for the service menu you need to repair the convergence circuit. If the lines wont line up in the customer menu they wont line up in the service menu either. Do you know how to solder? If so we can fix this yourself with a little instruction. Otherwise you will need to call a repairman. A good repairman will run you $300-$500 depending on your area. Let me know what you want to do.
Your convergence ICs need to be changed. 3 Blinks is a convergence error. I can post a link where you can get new ICs and they include free instructions with pictures so you can do the repair yourself, they also offer instant messaging with a tech while your doing the repair thats a free service when you but their replacement parts. Let me know if you would like the link.
