Question about Panasonic PT-53WX53 53" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

2 Answers

Almost fixed! Comment by Indy456, posted on Jun 15, 2008 installed the new STK392-120 and that fixed the color problem. I still have a slight concave picture. The top corners are ok, but the middle sags a little, and the bottom is up a little. Like an hour glass laying on it's side. Also, I've tried to adjust the Aspect because words at the edge of the screen get cut off. Example: "News Channel 13" at the bottom left of the screen would read "ews Channel 13". There has to be an ajustment to this other than the Aspect function on the remote. Any ideas?

Sounds like your unit may be suffering from the 4:3, 16:9 picture glitch.....if so it is easily fixed.

By admpeek on Jun 25, 2008 When I turn it on the picture is concaved, the color is shifted slightly to one side, and there are 3 skinny lines across the top. I went to convergence menu and clicked it...


You have a blown fuse on the Deflection board FL231 it will be on the righthand side of the flyback Transfomer there are 3 of them in a row they will look like small brown retrangler caps, it will be the one in the middle. I had this problem myself just several months ago, replacing this fuse fixed the problem. That fuse controls the convergance of the 3 CRT's, without it the tv can't converge so you don't get the option in the menu.

Colors are off and the picture is concaved. Tried to flash focus with no change. Picture is narrower in the middle and the colors are seperated.


Your symptoms sounds like a damaged convergence IC’s.

There are two and sometimes three very large IC’s that control the convergence in a big screen set. They are secured to a very large aluminum heat sink.

Most of the time you can just correct the convergence through the television menu. All that needs to be done is line up the blue and red to the green. If the colors do not move then there may be faulty components in the convergence circuit.

You may want to consult a Television Repair Technician, or repair this yourself. If you want to tackle this yourself, let me know, I can give you some direction for the repair

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

This is a problem with the convergence circuit. If you can solder, you should be able to fix this yourself. Please post the model number as a comment to this and I'll provide you with additional details and instructions.

My HD52W67 has concaved picture


This is a convergence problem and can be repaired relatively easily. If you can solder, you can fix this yourself. First try resoldering the pins on the convergence ICs. If that fails to resolve the problem, replace the ICs. These are large black ICs attached to a heat sink and should be marked STKxxx.

Keep us posted.
