Youre welcome, and congratulations on fixing your set. No advice on prevention, just remember that if your set does exhibit any warning signs its better to shut it down and do some investigating and you will save yourself alot of money in repair bills. Enjoy watching the TV that you have fixed. It sure does feel good to have it back to normal doesnt it. Glad I could help you out.

Panasonic PT-47WX53 has intermittant convergance issue

I would chack the solder connections at the convergence ICs first. Since the set "recovers" on its own, it suggests a connection issue rather than a defective component. Also, if the ICs were installed without sufficient heat sink compound, this could happen as well. Look at low valued resistors in the area of the ICs for signs of overheating as well.

Keep us posted on your progress.

Panasonic rear projection 47 inch

hi you are right this is common fault what needs replacing is the convergance ics theirs 2 of them but whils replacng these you will need any resistors checking for damage also as when the ics start to fail then its usually because a resistor has blown somewhere on the board causing the power to rise or fall and this causes the ics to fail

Usually when your convergence ICs go they take out 1 or 2 resisitors right next to the Ics. The tower your refering to is a capacitor. it should have a rating stamped on it such as 50uf @50 etc. Hope this helps

Tv is dead

Hi, Yes! the convergance board can stop the unit from coming On. No need to change the board, just change the ICs. This is what it looks like,you will have to remove the board from the unit take note of the wires before removing them, -794a500.jpg

Your convergence amp ICs are bad. You will need to replace both of them. Its an easy fix if you can solder. Check the resistors right next to the ICs also often 1 or 2 of them burn open when the ICs go out. Let me now if I can assist you further.
