Question about Panasonic PT-47WX49 47" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Convergence IC's for PT-47WX49 -- Right for my situation?

Yesterday my Feb 2002 Panasonic PT-47WX49 went flaky. Based on lots of responses you've made, I believe I need to replace the Convergence ICs. However, just wanted to make sure, with my own pics of my issue.

Color separation is a problem, yes, but I'm also having weird scan issues, and I'm not sure if they are related. Pics attached. Thanks!

    Also, while looking through more posts, I saw you mentioned STK392-150 and STK392-180 as options that might be longer lasting (always a fan of that). Is that a good idea?

    I googled those product numbers and found other places selling the IC's cheaper than the store you normally recommend. Do you recommend that store because the ICs they sell are higher quality than the $5.99-$8.99 prices I find on Google, or because they include instructions on how to do it, and those are worth the extra cost? Or both? Or maybe you work there? Just curious more than anything, I greatly appreciate the advice.

    I had someone come out, and though I think I paid WAY too much for him to do it, the replacement of the Convergence ICs fixed my problem.

    Thanks again for your replies and help, I probably should have just ordered the ICs and tried doing it myself, but I'm happy it is fixed.

The problem you have is not the convergence Ics youre signal board is defective thats what the scan issue is. Also to answer your questions its actually yes to all 3 questions. (1) yes the ICs are higher quality origional ICs. (2) the instructions are just their way of saying thanks to their customers, and (3) yes I work for them as a circuit board rebuilder and senior online support tech.As they provide free online diagnostic support which is always free, so I enjoy being part of a company that helps so many people repair their sets. But you need a signal board to repair your problem, unfortunately they are no longer available from panasonic, But you can get it remanufactured at the link I posted we do many circuits every week and they have the same 6 month warranty that the new ones carried when they were available.

Convergence if distorted


Distorted is the classic sign of bad Convergence ICs and possibly the resistors that power them. Check the resistors right next to the ICs and replace both conversion ICs.
