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

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.

Refurbishing the 1080i-capable Panasonic 47-inch WS DLP

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.
