Question about Panasonic PT-47WX53 47" Rear Projection HDTV

Panasonic PT-47wx53 screen converged to middle of screen

I have an 18 month old Panasonic PT-47wx53 HDTV. About 3 weeks ago, I was watching and the screen went from just fine to both sides converging into the middle of the screen. The sound went away and all I have is a swirling vortex of very faint light in the middle of my screen about 5 inches wide. After a few minutes, the power light starts blinking once every 4 or 5 seconds. Also, about 10 months ago, I had a similar problem, except instead of getting smaller, the screen got about 20% larger, but fixed itself before they could come out for warranty repair. I am trying to figure if these problems could be related to see if the manufacturer might help with the repair. Wondering if someone might have any suggestions.

This sounds like a classic High Voltage problem. Yes the two issues are related. Something in the High Voltage circuit has failed and originally caused the increased size. If you described the problem to the warranty people I'm surprised that they didn't recognize the problem and fix it under warranty. Now you have a short or partial short in the same circuit causing the fault (light blinking) after a few minutes. This problem will not cure itself. As I have told customers in the past "Electronics are not human and will not heal themselves". Maybe in the future, but not yet. You need a technician and it should be covered under warranty if things are as you described. I would recommend calling Panasonic customer service. They are usually a very good customer oriented company.

Have a Panasonic PT-47WX53 47. It's probably as old as when it came out. I've messed around with the convergence before but it was never un-fixable. Then a couple a days ago I came into the ro

yes and also possibly the low ohm resistors. You can get the PT53WX53 convergence kit which fits your model from www.tvrepairworld.com which has the 2 ICs and associated resistors plus the CD with repair instructions.

I have a PT-47WX53 that has one vertical bar down the middle of the screen. Barely visible in a purple hue and about 3-4 inches wide. I'm looking for some suggestions. Thanks

A few simple things you may try. Under your menu on the tv look for convergence or it also may be under setup. Run the convergence setup and follow the on screen instructions. If the tv fails to converge while in setup you may need to replace some things however the parts are very very cheap. If your convergence setup works and you still have a bad picture, and or both, meaning the tv's convergence wont align then you may need 1 or 2 IC's and maybe need to change your coolant in the tv's RGB lens...all can be done with little experience and for under 50 bucks. I can give more detail if needed.

Panasonic 47wx53 covergence issues

Is the power indicator flashing three times? If so the Ics have shorted shutting the set down. You will need two STK392-110 convergence ICs. You can get replacement ICs at the following link with free installation instructions.

Sounds like a deflection problem you will need to troubleshoot the deflection circuit.

Panasonic PT-47WX53 does not turn on

Yes, I did try to use the power button on the TV itself. That did not work too. Yes, there is blinking red light too. I searched through several sights and found out that it is an issue with the IC 4511. I could not find a place to buy the chip.


By the way, our local TV dealer asked for $400 to fix this issue. I had already spent $400 on a different repair on this TV, 6 months ago.

Any suggestion/advice would be very helpful. Thank you again for your response.
