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

2 Answers

Convergence Resistors Hi. We've figured out that we have a convergence problem with our Panasonic PT53WX42F Rear Projection TV. Since it is so old, decided to try a DIY fix rather than putting a lot of repair money into an old set. We replaced the STK convergence ICs. When we powered up, we got the convergence distress signal (3 flashes on the Power LED) and can see a glowing, burned out part by one of the ICs. This is the dumb question: how can we be certain what replacement part to order? I'm assuming it is an IC resistor; it is one of 2 that are parallel to the IC, but is discolored and doesn't have readable numbers on it anymore; it's at postion C7004. There are 7 small white resistors that are perpendicular to this one and these appear to be 2.2 ohm. Any help is greatly appreciated.

    Sorry. It is a resistor. R7059. I found the service manual for the PT47WX33 series but unable to locate one for the 53WX42.

    I have the same tv, and having the same problem. Turned on tv and have yellow in right side of tv and blue's in background. Can someone please tell me what the part number I need to fix this problem? I want to try and fix myself. thanks

    We have the Panasonic PT-53WX42F, as well. We have red lines running horizontally which then dip down towards the right of the screen. Would the same resistor part correct this convergence problem?

Thanks so much. If you could post the link to the location of the service manual, we'll probably purchase for future reference.

Can you check that location number again The parts list doesnt list a capacitor with that location number. Is the item a resistor or a capacitor ? Let me know the other site I work at has full service manuals with part numbers and specs in them. I will be able to tell you the specs on your part

    The resistor R7059 Is a 100K 1/10watt at 5% tolerance metal film/oxide(flame Resistant) The panasonic part number Is ERJ6GEYJ332V But any 1/10th watt 100K resistor will work as long as it is either metal oxide or metal film which are both flameproof for safety. If you need any more assistance please let me know I can post a link to the service manual also if you would like to purchase one. Good luck with your repair

Have a Panasonic PT-47WX53 47. It's probably as old as when it came out. I've messed around with the convergence before but it was never un-fixable. Then a couple a days ago I came into the ro

yes and also possibly the low ohm resistors. You can get the PT53WX53 convergence kit which fits your model from which has the 2 ICs and associated resistors plus the CD with repair instructions.

Panasonic rear projection tv blinking one time will not turn on . tried to reset it but no luck

The 3 blinks is a error code for the convergence circuit. You can get the convergence repair kit for your model at the following link which contains both Convergence ICs and all six feed resistors and they include step by step instructions with pictures that show how to do the repair yourself. Heres a link to the proper kit for your model Panasonic.

Failed resistor

those are the convergence feed resistors. # blinks on a panasonic means convergence IC failure. You will need to replace the two stk392-110 convergence ICs and the six resistors. You can get replacement ICs and resistors at the following link.
