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

PT-47WX, Blue streaks across the screen?

All of the sudden, I turn on the TV and there are curved blue lines going across the screen and also thin blue reflections vertically offset from the picture. Tried adjusting the convergence, which moved the streaks around slightly, but didn't get rid of them. I popped off the back cover, and when I covered the blue light with a piece of paper, the streaks were gone, so it must be something in that bulb, right? I've heard of bulbs and/or tuner blocks going bad on these. Any ideas about what I should do? I'm not a tv techy by no means at all, but I could probably change a bulb. If so, where can I get parts?

    "Blue arcs and double images" describes this problem perfectly, I'm calling in a tech. Thanks for the quick response!

    I have a panasonic projection tv 55 inch which I bought 4 years ago and it has the same problem. looks like these things were designed to break at around 3 to 5 years time. what a shame it is for panasonic. I will not buy this brand ever.

I have an older Panasonic Rear Projection HDTV and I just replaced the amp IC's - now the color is off, I can't get a vivid picture. It seems as if there is a greenish tint that I just can't get rid of - - - any thoughts on what this might be?

It is not a bulb. It is a picture tube. If there are thin blue lines across the entire screen, not just the edges, and the picture itself looks too blue, it means that the blue picture tube is being driven too hard. This could be because the blue screen voltage is too high, the boost voltage on the blue picture tube is too low, or the video output is leaky or shorted. If the picture has what looks like blue arcs and double images on one or more sides of the picture, it means that one of your convergence IC's has burned out and needs to be replaced. These are things that should be tested and serviced by a qualified tech, so allow an experienced tech to handle it for you.

Hello

red, green, and blue lines curve across the top of tv is cause by defective convergence STK IC or you have open resistor at convergence section. if you have defective RGB Color vertical ramp probably you have defective STK IC..

6 horizontal lines


I would look for a Vertical circuit failure. Most likely is the vertical output IC and or open resistor off the hv transformer. Definitely look for any loose solder connections around the Vertical output IC.
Hope this helps,

SanyoTV-blk screen w/thin line of light across screen great sound


Your Vertical Amp is probably Blown (bad) , but before you change that check all capacitors around the vertical amp IC and / or resolder resistors and diodes around vertical amplifier.
And NO it is NOT the Picture Tube
Good Luck

Television has no picture


That TV uses the PTK195 chassis, and the fact that you see only a thin line for each color near the bottom of the screen tells me your vertical output IC has stopped working, and is putting a small DC voltage across the yokes. I have seen this caused by a defective vertical output IC and I have also seen vertical problems caused by a small CRT coolant leak which drips onto the main board near the vertical output IC. If you do not have experience servicing the PTK195 chassis than have a qualified tech handle it for you.

Tv not working


this symptom, sometimes called the tube light effect, it is characterised by a bright thin horizontal line across the middle of the screen. this symptom is caused by a breakdown in the vertical deflection circuit. hence maybe the trouble maybe in the vertical oscillator, amplifier or output circuits. but if all i have said is not clear to you, better bring it to a qualified tv technician. good luck!
