Question about Panasonic PT-47WX42 47" Rear Projection Television
My problem is curving blue and green colors @ the top and bottom of screen going from side to side of screen. Its like a wave bending blue and green (blue on top of green) colors, 1 wave of colors on the top and 1 wave of colors on the bottom of screen. The degree of intensity is depending on the picture.
I went thru the convergence as follows:
1) OK, green scope sights lined up with marks on cabinet.
2) OK red centered fine
3) OK blue centered fine
1) OK, red all centered fine
2) a. BAD, blue is high on the outer upper top marks (top center is just okay).
b. Center screen marks are okay.
c. Bottom marks-blue is high on the bottom left and center marks. Right bottom was just okay.
I turned this problem in once before, paid the $10 and forgot to write down the password and user:) Its okay. I just would be happy if someone could tell me if the TV is not worth fixing or does it have a chance. Thank you
So what bestdarngood was saying, yes it can be repaired, but if you arent trained or knowledgeable in the internal workings of electronics / tvs Id take it a professional, since the tv uses high voltage it can be dangerious.

You will need to replace your two convergence I.C.s.They are two large
IC mounted on a large aluminum heat sink.Replace both,look for any
burned resistors near them,replace those if needed,and readjust your
convergence. Good Luck
