Question about Panasonic PT-47WX42 47" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Convergence issue You recently posted a solution to a problem someone else had about convergence. I have the same problem with my tv. It started as an issue with the red being off and hard to realign. Now it shuts off immediately and blinks 3 times in a row. Should your solution be performed by an expert? I do have some technical/mechanical aptitude, but I do not want to ruin my tv forever. If I can do it myself, could I get instruction on the proper method to install chips/boards? Thanks.

Its an easy repair if you can solder. just label any wires that you remove so you can put them back properly. Its just unsolder the old and solder in the new. Use the radio shack de-soldering iron with the rubber bulb it will make the job easier, and also purchase some heat sink compound to apply to the back of the ics where they contact the heatsink. They are located on the signal board which is on the left side of the chassis. change both then just do a convergence adjustment. If you need more help let me know. you will also needa pencil type soldering Iron from radio shack to resolder the ICs a 15 watt iron works best.

HD 1080 Series (WD-55809) - Color convergence issue


I don't know of illustrated instructions but I can provide you with the service manual for your TV. It does have illustrations of disassembly and components as well as schematics. Your set very likely needs new convergence IC chips. This is a common problem with all projection TVs. The repair is not expensive ($60-75 in parts)  but does involve unsoldering and removing the old chips and soldering in new ones. Some times there are some fuses that need to be replaced as well. If you want the manual provide me with an email address.

Need to know what convergence chips are in Panasonic PT51HX41E


your model has two STK392-110 CONvergence Cs, you will also most likely need at least a few of the 2.2 ohm 2watt convergence resistors. I am posting a link to the actualrepair kit for your model which contains both Convergence ICs and all 6 of the convergence resistors and they send instructions with pictures that show how to do the repair.

Convergence issues


Is the symptom the same on ac format? If so you may have to do an alignment. Also when the convergnce seems off if you go back to the convergence adjustmen is it off there aswell? If so you may just need to reflow thesolder on the convergence Ics.

SAMSUNG HCM4215W Rear Projection HDTV shuts down


Low ohm resistors are open or poor solder connections on the bottom of a convergence IC.

You need to look at resistors in good light with magnifying glass. Bad ones may show as discolored or burnt.

The repair needs someone that has the schematic for the convergence cct, and can replace the burnt resistors or replace the whole convergence board.

If you are near Calgary, call me, if not, find someone that has done it before, preferably many times.

Toshiba 61H70 Weird Convergence Issue?


They may have gotten some cheap convergence ICs, thats a real possibility. I would recommend switching the two origional STK392-110 with some STK392-150 they will run alot cooler and last alot longer. Just use a good coating of heat sink compound on the back of the ICs. I will post a link where you can get top quality Convergence ICs and they provide free instalation instructions with pictures so you can do the job yourself in under an hour and save quite a bit of money. Heres the link.
