Panasonic PT-56LCX66 buzzing noise when i push power


I'm going to take a guess and say that the buzzing noise and burning smell was either a transformer or a blown capacitor (more likely). It's likely that your old lamp was still good and there is a problem at the circuit level.

If you or someone you know is comfortable with electronics, you may want to open it up and take a look. If there is a blown capacitor it will be obvious. Take a look at badcaps.net or Youtube for help on identifying them.

If you don't feel comfortable working on the inside of a TV it's probably time to get a new one. Repairs will not be cheap and they won't be worth it.

Picture suddenly appeared out of focus, with different colors not lined up as they should be. A horizontal line shows up as two parallel ones, one red and one blue. This all happened to the accompaniment...


This is a model first sold in 2000---if convergence is skewed and will not align in the customer menu:

It uses two of the STK-392-110 convergence chips--I suspect if you smelled something that when the chips went bad one or more of the protection resistors around them toasted--burned to protect the set from the short.


Both chips and any bad resistors need to be located and replaced--parts cost On Ebay would be less than 30 dollars--I can tell you the best seller there.

If you or someone you know can do the repair you can save the set and a lot of money--Most shops are going to charge at least 300 for this kind of repair.

It should be able to be fixed right in your home--I know as I have repaired hundreds of sets with this problem.

Hitachi 65F59 65-Inch CRT Projection HDTV picture skewed.


The convergence output IC's have failed and need to be replaced. Sometimes when they go biasing resistors burn open also. These are large amplifiers mounted to heat sinks and have as many as 18 pins soldered into the circuit board. Better be handy at desoldering even if it's only the IC's that are bad.

KP-53S65 Blue Ghosting


The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.

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,Pioneer2_bing.gif Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
You can get a convergenece repair kit with instructions from the links below.

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

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

*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
