Question about Panasonic PT-47WX49 47" Rear Projection Television
I can't adjust the convergence on my tv. The picture is very distorted and there is alot of red color in the picture. I took the back cover off and covered the Red CRT and the picture quality looks alot better but minus some of the color. Should I replace the Red CRT myself or have it tested and repaired by a TV repair shop? Any advice would be helpful.

The tube should be ok its the IC's regulating the convergence is your problem . A tv repairman should be able to repair it fro around $250.00 - $300.00 or less depending on who you call. Good luck

Solution # 2 is correct. I had the same exact problem and did a lot of reading on regulating of the convergence. I fixed it myself though. When you turn the tv on go to convergence 1 and when the green is on the screen make sure this is centered like a + sign. Then exit the menu, you must wait about a half hour. Hopefully your tv will stay on this time, it did for me. Then go back into setup convenience 1 and don't mess with the green cross anymore hit the action key and go to the red and blue to match up with the green. Then go to convergence 2 and fix the red and blue crosses to match up with the green to make them white. Hopefully this solves your problem it did for me a 41 year old mom. All these websites on telling how to fix the stk's forget to tell you not to mess with the green big plus sign. I read in the manual where it says never mess with this in convergence1. Anyways hope it works for you!!

It's either your Convergence IC's or the Resistors associated with them. Here is a good write up on how to fix it and pictures to compare your problem to. BE CAREFULL! TV's carry A LOT OF POWER, and can KILL YOU. It's can be fixed by someone that has never done this before, but read read read about TV safety first.
If you got it fixed by a pro. expect to pay around $400.
