Question about Panasonic PT-53WX53 53" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
Have a 53" Panasonic HDTV 1080i projection set. Model number is PT-53WX53-G. Unit manufactured in 2003. Colors are out of alignment. No luck resetting to default settings. I have tried to adjust color guns using my remote (as per the owner's manual). I have been able to realign the blue color to the target, but cannot get the red color aligned. I can move the red color "alignment cross" up and down, but have only limited movement laterally. The red "alignment cross" is left of center at all stations. I can get the red "alignment cross" to move further left, but cannot get it to move back to the right. Any obvious maintenance a layperson can try inside the console? Willing to get inside and tinker, but am by no means a qualified electronics tech. I do have a service call scheduled, but wanted to see if there might be solutions I could try in the interim. Thanks, Tim
It sounds to me like the convergence amps themselves have failed. Ic7001 and Ic7002, both are STK392-110 Sanyo built Ic's and not an expensive job for a qualified shop. When shopping around for a shop to repair it ask what they charge for replacement of the convergence amps in this unit. And take the unit to them to save pickup and delivery charges...
Have a great day!
