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

1 Answer

Widescreen thinks it's a big screen

I moved my Panasonic PT47WX49 and when I plugged it back in, it now believes it's a big screen, rather than a widescreen TV. The picture comes up as if it is zoomed (even the user menu); there's no way to change the aspect and I now have PiP instead of PoutP. It's this way on every video mode. It is as if the computer inside has an identity crisis. Before moving the TV, my roommate was in the maintenance mode adjusting convergence and color. Has anyone seen this before? Does anyone know what can be done to fix it? Thanks for any help. David

    Guess I solved my own problem.
    Leaving the TV unplugged for a good bit of time allowed the system to reset to normal.
    Thanks

Information as to the type of signal input is needed to resolve this problem. Does it appear in zoom mode when playing a dvd, or just in catv mode? Some times an HD cable box must be reset to a particular aspect ratio. This can be done by reading the owners manual of the cable box manufacturer. Scrivitron

I believe the blue lamp in my 57H81 is going bad.


You need to replace convergence out chips in your Toshiba 57H81 tv by qualified tech because 3-D look picture in rear projection tv shows some thing wrong with convergence output chips.
Your tv model number shows it is rear projection tv that use 3 tubes to make color picture on front screen where as dlp tv use one lamp as back light source to present picture at front screen that is generated in light engine.

Pt47wx49 panasonic rear projection tv has very dark tv scenes


Has this problem been getting progressively worse? I would suggest cleaning the CRT's inside the tv with lcd screen cleaner or something similar. Make sure the tv is unplugged, all you have to do is undo some screws on the back to gain access to the inside of the cabinet. Hopefully that's all it is. Your set has no lamp if it is a Panasonic Pt47wx49.

The tubes have a useful life of 3000 hours. Replacing those tubes is close to $3000.00. It's going to be cheaper to get a smart flatscreen TV. The minute you try to clean the mirror, you will put tiny scratches on it. There is no bulb in tour TV, There are 3 cathode ray tubes. There is a lot of high voltage (25,00 or more) inside the TV, so be careful poking around inside the TV.

You have to turn off the "automatic", so the TV will not automatically show you what it wants you to see. Then, if you select 16:9 , you will see true widescreen.
Since you cannot physically change the size or shape of your TV, the picture itself will be black on the top and bottom. Since not all programs are widescreen, sometimes the sides will be black. You can try the other sizes to see which works best for you.
