Question about Panasonic PT-47WX53 47" Rear Projection HDTV

Panasonic Rear Projection

Good afternoon,
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:
PT-47WX53
PT-47WXC43
PT-47WX33
PT-4743

Thank you so much!!

    Hi, I have the same problem now.  Do you have any idea how much this would cost?  I'm based in the New York Tri-state area.

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

Panasonic rear projection-red convergence-moves horizontal only!?


The convergence ICs have failed. You will need to install a convergence repair kit. You can get the convergence repair kit for your model Panasonic from www.tvrepairworld.com which contains both of the Convergence ICs , the associated resistors and the cD with detailed 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.

The color converter


Seems to me you maybe experiencing a convergence issue rather than the color converter. (Don't know what he means by that for that I am an a tv repair technician).

If it is what I beleive it to be, you need and experience tech to do the work for you. It usually contains replacing two convergence IC packs along with some resistors and sometimes power supply parts. All wich requires good soldering work.

Hi odd johnny,

My sincerest apologies. My area of experience with Panasonic models are rather limited to diagnosis and power supplies. May I recommend instead hdtv_guru, techman or terryfic who I consider more knowledgeable and experienced on convergence circuits.

Nonetheless, I appreciate you bringing your concern to my attention and wish I could do more.

I have taken the liberty of pre-informing these gentlemen of your concern.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
