Sounds like the guns are out of alignment. This isn't normally something that a user can adjust.

Has the television been dropped/jarred or moved recently?

If the TV has a manual degauss function, you can try that (assuming it's really a CRT). Otherwise unplug it from the wall for a half hour, then plug it back in and see if anything has changed.

My Panasonic PT53WX52F has a sideways hourglass picture with the green scroll running in an arc with the same red scroll running straight across. Is this the convergence chip you talk about?


There are two common problems with these sets.

Problem #1) Convergence

Symptoms:
  • Screen Looks 3D
  • Colors wont align
  • Video may look distorted
Problem #2 CRT Fluid has clouded over. Symtoms
  • Dull looking video
  • White looking video
  • Halos around objects
  • Red/Orange looking video

3D image on panasonic 53''


Sounds like the red and green images have shifted.

In your settings menu there should be an option for it to self adjust or manual adjust of the red and green images alignment.

Convergence problem? Blue shifted to the left, red/green are okay


If your model number is the PT53WX53 its a rear projection CRT television not a DLP. The PT53WS53 uses two STK392-110 convergence ICs. If you verify the model number of your set I can assist you.

Ghosting in Red, Green and blue


The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.

These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony,Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer2_bing.gif Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get a convergenece repair kit with instructions from the links below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2
Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Panasonic 47 HDTV blue looks green


What you have there is referred to as white balance... The Overall White Balance May Suddenly Change And Become More Red, Green, Or Blue Depending On Which Crt Has Been Affected. During Turn Off A Crt Might Arc, Causing D304 (Red), D331 (Green) D361 (Blue) Damage And Leak Changing Cutoff Levels. Replace Diodes With Panasonic Kit # Txask02gser. Kit Contains 3 Diodes And 3 100k Resistors. Install New Diode And Resistor In Series In Place Of Old Diode. Install Annode In Crt Socket Where The Old Annode Was. Then Connect Resistor To Cathode End, Other End Of Resistor Goes Into Pcb Where The Old Diode Cathode Was.
A job like this in my shop we charge $280.00 dollars plus tax which includes the kit... Also a pickup/delivery fee if we have to go and get the unit...
