Question about Panasonic PT-51HX41 51" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Just received this model TV - broken, in pieces - worth pursuing?

I just received (free) a broken Panasonic 51" HD rear projection TV... it plugs in, powers on, and displays a picture. However, the blue bulb has been removed and I am told that the previous owner paid $50 for diagnosing the problem - the bulb allegedly needs to be replaced. However, I don't feel comfortable buying a new bulb and crossing my fingers that this is in fact the issue.

I've searched online and it seems that the common problem with these things is the "convergence" circuitry/chips needing to be repaired/replaced:

My question... what can I try (without bringing it into a shop) to further diagnose? Is this worth pursuing?

Model Number
PT-51HX41E

Chassis
AP820

Thanks!

SOURCE: Think this is worth fixing?

trust ME when i say setting convergence after doing repair takes alot of time to do /you can damage set if you do not have service codes and values/ you also must have the hand unit that comes with set in order to even get into convergence circuit, call your repair shops ask if they have a good blue tube for set and how much would it cost to repair?ARE you sure blue tube has been removed from set.?

Do you have to add a converter box to receive free


You will need a converter box or a separate tuner. The TV has an NTSC (analog) tuner.

I hope this helps.

(the $40 boxes that are available are mostly SD. You should check the specs if you want a HD tuner.)

I have a rear projection panasonic 51" tv with blue curved lines


This can be repaired by a Degaussing coil from most TV repair places. If you haven't already you should shut down the TV and wait till it cools maybe 1 hour or so and then when you turn it on there should be a degaussing circut that might clear this up for you build into the set. Its not that strong a signal and usually takes care of minor discolorations. If it doesn't have that then a shop can come and take care of it pretty fast usually.

Need help locating a box to make my TV receive true HDTV


You Dont need one your set is HD. So when the switch happens you are good to go. The only TVs that are going to need converter boxes is those who do not have HD or only have antenna.

Sony projection tv with dual tuners; only one tuner appears to be working now.


To verify that the tuner is the problem, move the cable from the second to the first. If you don't get a signal, the tuner is bad. The main tuner is part number 859843000 and is available for $47.38 from tritronicsinc.com
