Panasonic TV Repair

I was watching my Panasonic 50" widescreen HDTV when the screen went black and had verticle strip of color in the middle. The volume is fine, but the screen is now totally black when I turn it on. Can I fix this myself?

You will need to replace or have the convergence IC's replaced. They are soldered into the printed circuit board. You will need to know how to solder also un-solder on solid state printed circuit boards. If you do not know this, play it safe and call in a pro to assist you in this repair. Good luck

Having a big yellow spot background in the middle of the picture.


Hi , it seems you are experimenting a light engine problem.Here's how your tv works: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZLLHnQ4y-wo Basically there's 3 LCD chips that create the colors and image by blending together.When these chips start to melt you will get those blue spots, pixilation even vertical lines.You will need to replace the light engine. Have a blessed one!

That's a good one!

If you're using component video cables, make sure they are good and tight. If it's composite video or S-video inputs, you will likely need service.

Panasonic PT-47WX53 does not turn on


Yes, I did try to use the power button on the TV itself. That did not work too. Yes, there is blinking red light too. I searched through several sights and found out that it is an issue with the IC 4511. I could not find a place to buy the chip.


By the way, our local TV dealer asked for $400 to fix this issue. I had already spent $400 on a different repair on this TV, 6 months ago.

Any suggestion/advice would be very helpful. Thank you again for your response.

51 big screen apex tv, convergence or verticle IC?


If the lines are thin and close together running horizontally, it may be the vertical driver, but that usually takes out the resistor and sometimes the diode in the B+ for the vert. Also you must replace the caps that caused the problem in the first place.

Screen messed up


Is your model Panasonic 47WX49 HDTV ? You've got something amiss in the verticle deflection circuit.
