Converange chip-Where can I order one

I know what is wrong with my tv and I see someone just had the same problem yesterday with theirs. I do beleive the expert was texmen or something like that. Quite odd my tv is having the same problem as their on the same day, the converge chip needs to be replaced. I have contacted panasonic on this for my tv was made in august 2001 and I just talked to a tech today in which he was the one he gave me and he stated that the orginail chip in these only last 6 years. well my tv isn't even 6 years old yet. He also told me he has a life time chip! Why isn't Panasonic putting life time chips in these tv's to start with. The manager had nothing to say then. My tv isn't under warrantly being it is over a year old, but panasonic refuses to tell me the product name or number of how to get the chip to have it replaced myself. How do I find out the product name for the chip and the number of it so I can order it. It is the converge chip to make the colors line up.

This is very strange coincedence it seems the more I search this problem the more people I am finding with the same issue. This morning Aug 3 2007 I turned on our Panasonic PT-47WX42C to find this convergence problem! (distorted colours-off alignments) I, like yourself Hultsie would love to get the schematic diagram for our unit and change out the IC(s) myself. If we work together I believe we can accomplish this task! Please contact me at [email protected] if you would like to give this a go! I certainly will try to exhaust all avenues before I part with hundreds of dollars for something I know I can service myself. Oh, the defective IC(s) will more than likely have the values you need written on top of the chip...once you know the ones that need changing your local tv repair or even panasonic (if there close by) will sell them to you.

Have just started free trial. With Netflix yesterday and not let me on to it say had trial


This sounds like a time to contact Netflix. It is very likely that you entered some information wrong, and they think your information looks like someone else's. Something is wrong, and they probably think you have already had a free trial. I'm told that's the most common reason they won't give someone a free trial.

I was talking to someone and I lost him.


Hello Bob! Sometimes the best way to reconnect with an expert that you were chatting with is to just open up another chat request.

The good news is that you, as the paying customer, gets to decide if the expert provided a proper response to your question, or provided the solution to your problem.

By opening up another chat request, shortly after you got disconnected, you stand a pretty good chance of getting them again. If you get someone else, you can politely decline them and mark the session as "rejected" meaning you won't get charged for that particular chat. Further, since it is a paid chat session, the expert won't have their rating percentages adversely affected by your rejection of the session.

Hope you find this Very Helpful and best regards!

PS: Just wondering if you know Bob_computer in Canada!

Yesterday, the screen was working, today the top screen started playing up. The left side is a textured black, while the right side flickers the menu screen randomly. The middle either has a yellow or pink...


Your friend is right, you have damaged the ribbon to the top screen, you can buy them from the internet with the screen, and you can buy the tools also to unscrew the case, if you dont think you can do that, their are also places you can sent it to get it fixed, look on the internet.

I'm guessing you have the player connected via HDMI.
You first need to connect via SCART and then through the menus, set output to HDMI.

TV won't stop beebing


Now I am not a expert in this field by any means and there may be someone else that can give you a better answer but I will provide some insight from experience. When this happens it is usually do to the television going into protection mode, this is to let you know something is wrong inside the T.V., it does this to prevent any further damage to the T.V.. I do not know but if it is still under warranty you should read your warranty paperwork and contact whoever it tells you to, if it;s not then you should contact your nearest T.V. repair shop.
hope this helps

Very wavy picture- gets worse when show has fast-cuts


First thing Do not beleive peeps about a bad card. Modules are not used in TV sets any more unles your talking about a complete board change out for a Zenith TV set. Toshiba sets do not have a card or board changeout!.. These peeps are crooks! A Toshiba set is repaired to componet level. It sounds like you may have a convergence problem or a problem inj the power supply involving the filter or couping capacitors. Seek out a pro whos an authorized servicer for Toshiba.
