Question about Panasonic PT-53TW53 53" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

HELP! Should I buy this model for $200

Saw ad on craigslist for this tv. However, it stated that the convergence was off from moving the tv from the downstairs to the upstairs, but it is still watchable and they watch it everyday. The owner said that the problem could be simply fixed via remote but he lost his. He said that all you have to be is order a new remote and fix it since you can't fix it from the tv buttons. If it is a the convergence amplifer chip thing is it a easy fix? Need some advice before purchase. Thanks. jml

It sounds like it maybe the convergence ICs or it could just need adjustment from moving.If it does need new ICs they are STK392-110 and you can get replacement iCs and free instalation instructions at the following link.

Photos on craigslist


One of the useful features of Craigslist is that they allow you to upload up to eight digital photos to most classified ads for free.

Conveniently, they also allow the use of HTML code in the ad descriptions, which makes it possible for you to include an unlimited amount of photos hosted on external sites.

If you use the built-in upload tool, Craigslist will automatically resize the images for you.
If you host them on an external site, you will need to resize them yourself.

The resizing can be accomplished using HTML code.
Visit the Craigslist Web site and click the "post to classifieds" link Below.
http://www.craigslist.org/about/help/html_in_craigslist_postings/

Follow the prompts and enter in a title and description for your ad.
Click the "Add images" link when prompted if you want to upload some images with Craigslist's built-in uploading tool.

These will be automatically resized for you.
Continue reading if you want to add and resize your own images.


Go to your image host, such as Photobucket, ImageShack or Flickr, in a new browser window or tab and open the album containing the images you'd like to use.
Click or right-click on the images one at a time and choose the option (if necessary) to view the direct Web addresses for them.

This address is what you'll link to in the Craigslist ad. Type the following HTML code into the ad's Description box (a few lines below the text description you already typed in):
<img src="" height="" width="" />

Inside the "src" quotes, copy and paste the Web address for the first image you'd like to add to your ad.

Inside the "height" and "width" quotes, type in the height and width (in pixels) you'd like to resize it to.

For example:
<img src="http://www.site/image.jpg" height="200" width="300" />


Repeat the previous step for any additional images you'd like to add to your Craigslist ad.
When done, follow the prompts on the page to save and post your Craigslist ad.

Try adjusting the convergence. If it won't move see below- (or hitting Magic Focus for some Hitachi’s)

This sounds like convergence output IC problem. convergence board would have to be removed - remove and replace 2 STK IC's and check the surrounding resistors. Shops usually $200-$400 Be sure to vote/rate me if this helped Thanks!

The green color is off. I am thinking that it is the auto convergence. I want to try to fix it my self (I love to do these kind of things) but I do not want to buy the wrong part.

To Find the IC's look for 1 or 2 large (4in x4inx1in) aluminium heat sinks. the part # is labelled on the face of the IC itself

If the convergence on one or more color does not align using the convergence setup procedure, that means that one or more convergence ICs must be replaced, that is the reason why you get bad picture.

That means that the convergence ICs are bad and must be replaced, the job is about $200/$300.

Here there is an example of the repair needed: Fixing Convergence problems in RPTV's

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem

  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.

Here is a quick test....

Using your original remote go-to the tv settings then goto the convergence section.

Try to adjust the red and then the blue convergence.



You should be able to move them up, down, left, and right.

If you can't move them in all directions your convergence chips are bad and should be replaced. This is a common problem.

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together a kits for most models. If you don't see a kit for your set send them a quick note and they will put one together for you. Their kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, etc.

you need to replace the convergance modules,mounted on middle board mounted to tall aluminum heatsink, buy 2 STK392-040 DUAL CONVERGENCE ICS from www.bluestar-online.com cost for 2 plus shipping 18.78. You will need to desolder the 2 old ones and solder in the 2 new ones.You will also need some ceramic heat sink compound. If you cant perform the repair order parts take to tv guy to get them sodered in. Whole mess to fix if you buy help is under 200 bucks.

Has anyone had problems with connecting an 'HDMI to HDMI + SPDIF + RCA L / R Audio Extractor Converter (HDMI input,HDMI+ Audio output)' to a Panasonic PT-53TW53? I have a TiVo Premiere hooked up to my Panasonic PT-53TW53. I use the HDMI out, and RCA R+L outputs on the TiVo, and hook up to the digital in connections on the TV. The conversion of the HDMI out is via an HDMI to DVI cable. This has worked perfectly for years, but recently I wanted to disconnect the TiVo and replace with my Roku or Amazon Fire TV. Both have a single HDMI output. So I purchased an AGPtek HDMI to HDMI + SPDIF + RCA L / R Audio Extractor Converter (HDMI input, HDMI+ Audio output) box, hooking up the HDMI output from the Roku or Fire TV to the input on the extractor/converter, and simply disconnecting the HDMI to DVI and RCA R+L outputs from the TiVo, and plugging them into the outputs on the converter/extractor. The converter/extractor has a 3 position switch: PASS, 2CH audio, or 5.1CH (via and SPDIF or Toslink cable). I have had 2 of these converter/extractors, and with both the Roku and Fire TV I got the same results with both converter/extractors: With the switch on 2CH, which is where I understand I should get HDMI video and 2CH RCA audio, all I get is the RCA audio. No video. If I switch to PASS I get video with no audio. Of course on the 5.1 setting I get nothing, since the TV does not support SPDIF. Yet I see reviews all over Amazon indicating folks are using this converter/extractor for this very purpose, and it is working fine. I can't possibly imagine that it is some sort of incompatibility issue with the TV, since the TiVo has worked (and continues to) fine for years. Any ideas?
