Question about Panasonic PT-47WX49 47" Rear Projection Television
The tv turns on but the colors on the picture are off on the top and bottom the middle is basically fine, also there is a doubling effect. Anyone know what the problem could be & how to correct it? Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.
Sounds like your convergence chips are going. Unless you are real handy with soldering iron I would suggest having a tv repair shop service it(probably cost $200-300). If you are handy then I believe the chips you need are Sanyo STK392-110. There should be 2 of them. be careful if you order them online, there are lots of chinese knock-offs out there.

Your TV most likely has a Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )
Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem
You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together convergence repair kits for most models.
The kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, thermal paste, etc. Everything you will need to do the repair yourself.
