Question about Panasonic PT-47WX49 47" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Wavy picture and turns itself off after an hour or two.

At first I had a wavy picture and lived with this for several montha. Now I still have the wavy picture and the set turns off after an hour or two. After the set cools for a while, you must reset power at the power strip and the set will turn on.

    Most likely its a weak capacitor or a leaky diode in the deflection circuits thats causeing the wavy picture. I would check to see if any capacitors look like they have been swelling on the deflection board which is the board on the right side.

How do I fix wavy lines on Hauppauge Wintv hvr950q?

Are they wavy lines throughout the picture or are they just wavy on the side? Waving picture is usually caused by poor power supply filtering. Wavy lines throughout the picture are caused by interference. Try moving the device away from the computer with an extension USB cable it may be picking up interference from the surrounding electronic devices. It could also be defective.

This is a picture of the DM Board in your TV. The wavy lines are tell tale signs of a failed capacitor. The capacitors are the cylindrical components on the board. One or more of them have failed. There is also a FMT Board with capacitors that could be causing this also so test them all. The DM board alone is 1000 bucks so it would be well worth it to invest in 50 bucks worth of capacitors and change them all out. Your boards would be fresh and good for another 4 years.
Your other option is to call a TV repair man and he would come pick up your boards and bring them back to his shop and test out the bad 3 dollar capacitor and swap it out and hand you a bill for 500 bucks.
Hope this helps you out.

TV turns on then off no picture

this is very common. it is the power supply going bad. it should run at 130 volts dc. but it is now running much lower that this. just enought for the tv to come on. but not enough to power all the circuits right.

1. "wavy" may mean a signal problem inside the set--are you seeing colors out of position or skewed around letters etc?

2. Does it do it when a DVD is played? (this will rule out certain things).

The problem with the television is the lamp. It is faulty that is why the screen turns wavy in minutes.

The solution to that is to replace the light and your television will be in good condition once again.
