Question about Panasonic PT-53WX54 53" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Sylvania TV My Sylvania TV/DVD/VCR Combo has a line in the middle of the screen, going from the left all the way to the right. It is the picture, but it's all scrunched up in this thin line. Above and below it, the screen is black. What's wrong with it? I don't know the serial number or model number. It is a big TV and I got it in December 2002 or 2003. Please help.

This is called a "collapsed" picture. it is normally a simple repair for a tv technician. simple for them but almost impossible for the average consumer. if the set is fairly new and not under warranty it might be worth your effort to take it to a tv repair place and get an estimate on the repair cost and go from there. if it is an old set it is time for a new one.

Red/Orange horizontal lines


it could be that the tv convergence circuit is going bad. One shure way of finding out is to go to the tv feature menu(picture,audio etc.) and select the customer convergence setting, you should get a cross hair pattern(cross in middle of screen). that cross should be white and by aligning the red or blue colors they should move left, right, up or down

Line going thru the tv


Josh, When you say a line going through your TV is it a line from left to right or top to bottom? Is there a picture present and this is a line imposed on the picture or just a line by itself? Let me guess, you have no picture just a horizontal line (from left to right) across the middle of the screen. If so that is collapse of the vertical deflection and most likely caused by failure of the vertical IC and possibly linked to some bad caps in theat circuit as well. It's not an expensive repair, just find a good reputable shop. You might also mention, or if they ask, that your unit is a lighbox. Meaning that when they go to repair it the insides of the unit separate from the cabinet for easier access.. Good Luck Bill
