Ok I know you answer a million questions a day, but here's my problem. I have a Panasonic PT- 51hx42f Rear Projection TV. It works but shows alot of red with a glare reflection of whatever is on tv. I have tried adjusting convergence, but it will not change. If you can tell me anything like what parts you think I could buy to fix this problem and from where would be a great help. Thankyou in advance, David
Ps. Do you have an actual email address so I can send you a picture of the problem. Tried to send a picture on here, but said the picture was to big!

Try disconnecting all of your HDMI cables and plugging the power cord of the TV into another wall outlet. If this resolves the issue, you may have had a small power surge from either your wall outlet or one of your source devices. It is recommended to connect your TV to a surge protector if you haven't done so already.
No thats not the Problem you have to know HOW TO ENTER SERVICE MENU Their is a Long Step in getting into the SM
if not done correctly you can really Mess this TV up! Once you Enter the service menu then you can go to convergence and adjust
to correct Pattern,Then you Must Exit correctly with the Save Mode to Save alinement or you will have to adjust all over again.
hi friend i appreciate the words of praise that you have given, but i only know what i have studied and still do study. i also learn more as i repair more. i wish i could give you an answer to the three blinks, but panasonic does not share its information as freely as sony. i will tell you this. i have replaced the convergence chips before. i have seen the burned resistors before. and i have seen the set come on and last from one day to one week. if you are going to get chips i would replace all of them and i would definitely not go cheap. the cheap burn out fast. sometimes you will luck up and get some good ones and sometimes you will not. when i have convergence problems i replace the board. (partstore.com) this way you eliminate changing cap, resistors and a host of other problems. the really good chips cost around $46 a piece, the board cost around $160. now since you do have them. cut the legs off close to the board and simply desolder them one at a time. then take your time and resolder the others. this has to be a skill of patience, but i know you will triumph. tell me also what was your tv doing before it went out completely. please rate my solution and thank you, you are very kind.
Sounds like the light engine. Is this a DLP or LCD rear projection? Did you see any patches of color any time before the problem with the really dark screen. Please rate my answer and let me know what other questions, Tech Malick
usually you can see the resistors being a little discolored as they dont have color bands on them. If you dont notice any discoloration on those resistor you should be good to go. There are about 7 or 8 resistors right next to the ics they stand up off the boards easy to spot, just look them over real good.if you notice any discoloration let me know the code stamped on the resistor and I will give you the ratings of the resistors.
Sometimes, in the Panasonic projection sets, one of the convergence IC's shorts out and draws so much current that one of the resistors next to it glows red hot. The computer senses the extra current and shuts the set back off. This is quite an easy problem to correct, but the set should be serviced by a qualified tech familiar with panasonic projection sets.
