Question about Panasonic PT-53WX53 53" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

Open Question

I recently attempted to fix Panasonic PT-53wx53g projection HDTV. It began with a blue "bowing" at the base of the picture, so i changed convergence chips that i bought at a local electronic supply and surrounding resistors. I powered it on and the resistors began glowing, smoking, then the tv powered itselft off. I was advised to buy a kit from the internet which consisted of two new chips and only half the resistors that surround the chips, the instructions said these were the only ones feeding the chips. I have installed all the items from the kit, and now the tv powers on, makes a high pitch squeal, then powers off and blinks 3 times. No smoke though. no glowing either. Need some advice please.

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

You can see some more examples and find a fix herebb0cf99.png http://www.fixya.com/support/r2861467-solution_video_looking_whiteish_dull

More than likely, the two convergence IC's have to be replaced.
