Question about Panasonic PT-47WX42 47" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Blue Ghosting Images

This is driving me nuts. When there is a sports ticker, or any white throughout the picture, a mirror image of it appears a few inches away in blue. When dialing the red and blue in on Convergence 1 and 2, the blue is noticably off...but it will only adjust left to right, or right to left...not up and down as red does. This is not isolated to any one input...it happens on Cable, DVD, etc. Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks!

I have a Zenith 65 in. TV model #R65W28 serial #271-33220211. The words are blurry and there is a green outline on images in the picture even if i reduce color to black and white. what can i do to fix it?...


It sounds like the convergence drive circuit has gone bad. When that circuit goes the red, blue and green don't line up properly. Have a repair shop check it out. While they are in there have the shop clean the lenses and mirror.

Red and blue ghosting,


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

Convergence images?


The blue picture tube of a projection tv is usually the weakest in ability to focus and in most cases loses its focus ablility before the red and green. Connect a cross-hatch generator to the rf inputs of the unit and check to see which areas are most out of convergence. The corners are usually the worst. HD will always bring out the slightest imperfections. If the unit was totally out of convergence, I would have suggested replacing the convergence IC'S.In my experience with rear projection, your problem is normal wear . You could conceivably improve the picture by adjusting the blue focus on the screen focus block. Scrivitron
