    I know that already and i will replace that soon. I still want the service code setup, so i can adjust for fine, coarse. Not only do you need to replace IC's, but there are several adjustments in service menu to be performed to do it correctly. So, if anyone can help me get the code for service mode that would be great.

    Hey thanks that was real quik, I was almost going to have to purchase the manual.. I have the bench tech schematics for voltages, current, etc.. I just needed to get in there for final adjustments. Works perfectly



    Thanks again

The service menu wont help. you need to replace both convergence ics number STK392-110 . you can get replacement ICs at the following link and they provide free instalation instructions with pics so you acn do the repair yourself in about 45 minutes and save over 400.00. Heres the link.

    Using the remote control:

  • Press the {MENU} button.
  • Press "Setup" menu.
  • On "Mode" menu, select "Cable"
  • Select "Timer" menu and set sleep timer to 30 min.
  • Press {ACTION} twice to exit menus.
  • Tune to channel 124.
  • Press and hold {VOL -} button ON THE TV.

    "CHK" appears in on top-left corner followed by 5 letter/numbers
    (which are the cumulative hours in hex numbers)


  • While the "CHK" is displayed, press the {ACTION} & {VOL+} buttons
    ON THE TV simultaneously to toggle between Modes:

    — Red "CHK" for Serviceman — Yellow "CHK" for Aging —


  • Press the {POWER} button on the remote to select one of the six
    Serviceman Adjustments Modes.

    A. MTS ADJUSTMENT
    B. CLOCK ADJUSTMENT
    C. VIDEO ADJUSTMENT
    D. HDEF ADJUSTMENT
    E. VDEF ADJUSTMENT
    F. DAF ADJUSTMENT
    G. OTHER ADJUSTMENT


  • Press {CH+} {CH -} on the remote to select the settings
    on each of Service Adjustment Modes.

    Write down the original values before modifying anything.
    It's easy to erroneously adjust the wrong item.



  • Press {VOL+} {VOL -} on the remote to change values.

  • Press the {POWER} button on the TV to exit the service menu

    Panasonic PT-52LCX65 now has a red color spot and purple color spot on screen. I had purchased an extra lamp and replaced but didn't help. Is it color wheel or something else?


    Howdy,
    The problem is with the EEPROM in the TV that needs to be reprogrammed. But you need to have the proper Correction Tool (LSUQ0100).
    I don't think it's available to the public. Call a Service Company, but make sure they have the “Correction Tool”.


    Thanks for using FIXYA, big IRISH.

    Panasonic PT-61HX42F shuts off automatically red light flashes, but before that happened the green color was way off


    One of the convergence output IC's has died. However, when one goes the other is soon to follow so any good repair shop will insist on changing both of them. This is a common failure with all projection tv's as these amps work real hard and have a high failure rate. Average repair cost is usually between $200 and $300.
