Question about Panasonic PT-47WX53 47" Rear Projection HDTV
My inlaws have a Panasonic Rear projection HDTV, and are experiencing some problems with the convergence, at least I think that's part of the problem. I have already gone through the menu and attempted to correct it, but the options are mainly for the red and blue, and the problem is actually with the green. The green has a fish bowl effect, mushed up in the middle of the screen and spread out towards the outside of the screen. The red and blue can be lined up perfectly, but because the green is so out of whack, the picture is horrible. I was wondering if it could be something messed up with the green light bulb or the casing it sits in. That's just my uneducated/unexperienced guess... and kind of my hope for something somewhat simple to fix... Not that I know if that's a simple fix or not though... Could you please supply me with some more information or advice? I would really like to get this fixed for them. I'm uncertain as to the exact model, it's a 47" and the model numbers on the manual are:
Thank you so much!!

You are on the right track. The problem is actually with the green convergence IC that controls the alignment. The convergence ic's take the information from the 3 pictures and align them into one picture on the back of your screen. Although this is an economical repair it is complicated and should be left to a quailfied service technician. If you are not sure of a local technician, panasonic's website has a servicer locator that can guide you to one. Hope this helps
