Question about Panasonic PT-47WX53 47" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Here we go again

Had the two convergence circuits repplaced a few months ago. now i noticed that the tv was showing 3 colors of the tv ratings when changing channels . i think they were red /grn /blue. I went in to the convergence setting on the tv, tried to manualy adjust them with the remote. and i even hit factory reset. this did nothing. the rest of thepicture on the screen looked pretty good. i turned the tv off and when i turned it back on , i get sound , and three vertical lines in the middle of the screen , all of them faint. i cannot get any picture on the screen , so i am unable to navigate the menus.. is there a way to reset the tv? or is the convergence gona again..

thanks ...joe

    thin line through the middle of the tv. Have unplugged the cable and tv and plugged back in. Still the same. If you bump the tv on its side it will jar a picture briefly and go back to the thin line. Do not know if it is the cable box (but cable company has resent signal and it still does not help). Could it be a short of some type within the tv?

Sounds like a deflection problem you will need to troubleshoot the deflection circuit.

My Sony KP-46WT500 has a yellow arc of color on the upper left side that never goes away even with plug in devices like Wii. It started about 6 months ago and has gotten worse over time. What can I do?...


Very common problems,through out the DLP tv life cycles could happen again again until end of the tv life itself.The tv have a problems known as a convergence picture problems,it is dead.Tv have any colors lines like R,G,B mis alignments,have colors shadow pictures or 3D pictures look alike?Yes?Than the tv convergence board it is dead.The tv convergence board must have it components parts replaced like 2 STK convergence ICS and some or all of it resistors too.To fixed the tv convergence board to solved the tv convergence picture problems.The Shop will cost u like $300-350 for parts and labors.

The convergence going bad again on my Hitachi 51swx20b


Sounds like loose solder on the chips. Either that or they are failing. You can save money next time by doing it yourself with a kit from www.TvRepairKits.com

Tv turns on then off after a few seconds. No picture or sound in these few seconds.


Try this and let me know what you find:


Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} MOST OF THESE SETS HAVE A SELF DIAGNOSTIC:

UNPLUG TV AND THEN PLUG BACK IN---TURN ON---GREEN POWER LIGHT COMES ON FOR A MOMENT AND GOES OFF.

PRESS AND HOLD “device” and “menu” buttons on front of tv for at least 5 seconds and then release both together.


Watch for power light to blink in a sequence:

1 blink-then 2 blinks-------no error

2 blink-then 1 blink-------X-ray protection

2 blink-then 2 blink-------SHORT PROTECTION*******

2 blink-then 3 blink---------deflection circuit problem

2 blink-then 4 blink---------vertical circuit problem


******2, then 2 is most common---usually means one of the fuses that protect the Convergence IC or IC’s is blown---set will detect no voltage to convergence IC and shut down.


SET WILL REPEAT BLINK ERROR CODE UP TO 5 TIMES AND THEN TO GET IT TO REPEAT MORE YOU HAVE TO UNPLUG SET AND TRY TO TURN ON AGAIN.


IF IT IS 2 AND THEN 2---USUALLY
CONVERGENCE CIRCUIT PROBLEM

let me know what you find--hope that you find 2 blinks, a pause and two blinks--this is the most common and easiest to fix.

if this has helped you rate this solution as I do this here for free.

The green hue (I had it too) is a result of the optical block failing.
