Question about Panasonic PT-53WX42 53" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Wave at bottom of screen with green and pink shadows

There is a wave that starts at the bottom right and goes up to about 6" in the middle bottom of the screen then tapers off to the bottom left about 2" from the bottom corner. The wave is causing the pink and green colors to make shadows on all words and pictures.

    I have a PT-53wx54 with similar problem after 3 years heavy usage. I just replaced 2 stk392-110 IC myself, worked very well. It's not difficult to do yourself, I don't have any experience in soldering, but 3 hrs job was nicely done.

Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.

This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projeciton sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Common Symptoms include....

  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.
  • TV shuts off after powering on. Power light will blink. TV may also make a chirping noise.
Here are some photos of convergence problems.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the settings menu then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.

You should be able to move RED and BLUE in all directions - up, down, left, and right. And you should be able to get the grid straight.

If you can't move them in all directions or cant move them far enough your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

Note: If you TV has as flash focus or magic focus button only try pressing the bWave at bottom of screen with green and pink shado - 69189a5.pngt fails to fix the convergence your need to fix it. See below for a fix

You will need to replace the convergence chips and possibly some convergence resistors and pico fuses.
This is a a fairly easy DIY job if you are handy and can follow directions. You can get complete repair kits from TvRepairKits.com or click here. They have put together DIY repair kits that include the OEM parts and step by step photo instructions for each repair. If you are not handy or can't follow directions we would suggest calling a shop.

What is the firing order for a 2011 dodge grand caravan 3.6l?


1-2-3-4-5-6 2000 Chrysler Grand Voyager SE 3.3L R Gas engine. Here's the spark plug firing order or how to put the spark plug wires back on information: When standing on the passenger side of the van, where the fan belt is, the pistons on the left side or back of engine, are numbered 1, 3, 5 (1 is closest to you, 3 in middle, 5 is on drivers side). On the right side of the engine, or front of the van they're numbered 2, 4, 6 (2 is on passengers side, 4 is in middle, & 6 is on drivers side). The coil pack on my van is already numbered, just brush the dirt off and put the number 1 piston's spark plug wire to the #1 pin on the coil pack, etc. In case yours isn't numbered, here's the numbering of the coil pack from top left, across to the top right is 3, 1, 5, and then from bottom left, to bottom right is 6,4,2.

in power outlet, RC Jack, cable and connectors, the TV might need service.

What is the firing order in a 94 taurus. My mom pulled all the wires out of the distributor cap and we are finding it hard to find the right order. There are 6 rods around the distributor and one in the...


Firing order is 1-4-2-5-3-6
You should have a number one stamped on the number one position of the distributor cap.
The cylinders are numbered as follows:
facing your car,
from left to right rear bank 1-2-3
front bank 4-5-6
The one in the middle goes to the coil.
The distributor has 2 mounting that hold it in position. - starting at the back screw to the right going clockwise is 3-5-2-4-1-6. This is the numbering on the distributor if you dont have a number one stamped.
Hope you get it going and tell mom to label the wires nest time!

I have an 945gzt-m v 1.0 and dont know were the pwr sw wire goes


Yes.
First, let's orient the view of the motherboard, so we are both looking at it the same way.
The processor is at the top middle, and the Front panel header, is to the very bottom right hand corner.
Right next to the motherboard mounting hole.
The Front Panel header goes across the bottom edge of the motherboard, lengthwise.

Looking at the top row of pins on the Front Panel header, No.2 Pin is at the far left. Pins 2, 4, 6, 8 and 10, go across the top.

Looking at the bottom row, No. 1 Pin is at the far left. Pins 1, 3, 5, 7, and 9, go across the bottom.

The power switch wires go to Pins 6 and 8.
The HDD LED wires go to Pins 1 and 3.
The power LED wires go to Pins 2 and 4.

On the power switch wires, the Positive (+) wire goes to Pin 6. Just in case this wire is marked.
(Doesn't really matter which way it goes, because it's a switch!)

On the HDD LED wires, the Positive (+) wires goes to Pin 1.

On the power LED wires, the Positive (+) wire goes to Pin 6.

Tv comes on for a few minutes then goes off


If you take off the front bottom panel of the tv wich is easy. Then you will see 6 tuning knobs at the bottom middle of the tv .the top 6 control contrast for the lights dont mess with those. the bottom 3 are the power to each light.red is bottom left if your screen went blue it makes sense that the red is starting to go but if you turn down the power to it left 1/8 turn it should fix it for awhile .Its easy.
