Hello! thrpst,

You have, mostlikely defective convergence output ICs, if so thease will have to be replaced. This should be done by a qualified service tech.

There is an arc of varios colors at bottom 1/2 of screen


Projection TV sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the video to look normal. When its out of alignment the video will look 3D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the TV menu. If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired.
This is a very common failure on these projection sets and a fairly simple DIY fix. All projection sets including Samsung, RCA, Sony, Philip Magnavox, Panasonic, Pioneer, Akai, GE, JVC, Toshiba, and others at some point will have the same problem.

Panasonic pt-47wx53g red is out of convergence range


Have you moved the TV recently?, if so the red can(Red source) in the back bottom of the TV may have physically shifted in its holder, this is common when a rear projection tv is moved, jostled. Take the back off, look at the three cans,Red, Blue, Green, see if they all look like they are nested the same, bet the red is shifted a little.Good Luck with it!

Projection tv 42" panosonic hdtv. to much green in the picture. Jeff


this unit may have a resistor on the green crt-board that has increased in value. check ohms(resistance) on all crt boards and compare to one another. these will have color bands that inicate value of resistance. you do not need to know color code, just match colors of resistors on each board then measure. you could also have weak green tube. turning down the master screen control located on the fous/screen block can reduce grn. drive. to adjust proper drive for each so the grey scale is correct, turn color to tv all the way down then adjust screen controls on block for black & white picture. when color is turned all the way down, you should not have any green, red, or blue over cast on screen. mch

Problem #1) Convergence


These sets need to have all three colors - RED - BLUE - GREEN - lined up correctly on the screen in order for the picture to look normal. This is called convergence.

If you cannot adjust it in the menu - then your convergence is broken and needs to be repaired. Convergence problems are very common on all Projection TV sets including Sony, Samsung,JVC,Philip Magnavox,Panasonic,Akai,Pioneer, Hitachi,Mitsubishi,Zenith and others.
