Its a repair you can do yourself for under 40.00 if you can solder . You need to replace both convergence ICs they are both STK392-110. You can get replacement ICs at the following link with free instalation instructions with pictures. TV shops generally charge between 400 and 600.00 for this repair which takes about an hour.

Tv is showing double vision with red being the second image


Hi,
This is due to convergence out chips failure, replace convergence out ICs in TV to get converge picture.
If you are handy with electronics stuff repair and want to repair TV by yourself (soldering work is required) then let me know exact model number written at back of TV to provide you more technical info OR ask local tech to fix it.
Thanks.

It sounds that TV got convergence out IC failure, please replace convergence out ICs (two in this TV) for correct picture.
Required ICs are available in Part Store.
Thanks.

Panasonic pt-47wx53g red is out of convergence range


Have you moved the TV recently?, if so the red can(Red source) in the back bottom of the TV may have physically shifted in its holder, this is common when a rear projection tv is moved, jostled. Take the back off, look at the three cans,Red, Blue, Green, see if they all look like they are nested the same, bet the red is shifted a little.Good Luck with it!

I have a Panasonic HDTV Projection PT-47WX42 with double imaging.


Projection TV sets have two very common problems listed below.

Problem #1) Convergence


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

PT-47WX53G green convergence and wave on bottom of screen


Had same problem with Red. Could not adjust. Funny broken lines. Found this link:

http://cmpalmer.blogspot.com/2006/11/fixing-my-own-tv-part-ii.html

Replaced the ICs. Was disappointed at first 'cause it was still all bowed out, but then realized that the Convergence 2 "target" can be changed with the number keys. Working thru 1-9 and going back to readjust as necessary adjusted each one into perfect alignment.

Problem solved. TV works great.

I should add that while I am reasonable technically adept, I am a software geek and never soldered before... hardest part was getting up the courage to dive in and do it myself. Glad I did.

Ghost images on tv


Bod convergence IC's. Try doing a reset of the TV first by pressing and holding the ACTION and POWER buttons while the set is on. A CHK screen with diagnosis will come up in about 5 seconds. Once that happens release the buttons and shut the set off and then turn it back on. If problem still is there then convergence circuit problems need to be fixed.
