First of all are you sure you were in the factory menu this step requires alot of known how!!!!!! By using your hand unit only customer controls can be reached unless you know factory menu setup. Which starts like this ,make sure antenna to cable then go to menu set sleep timer to 30 mins exit out now enter ch 124 then press v- down on tv you should now see on top CHK ,also these sets have double convergence patterens.if you were in factory set up for more information look in techassist/09-2005 .let me know if you still need help.

SOURCE: Panasonic PT-47WX53G Projection TV - convergence problem, can not align completely

I don't know why that guy told you to replace your "DC" board (that is the one you mean, right?) More likely than not, it's your convergence amp integrated circuits (ICs). I had what I think was the same problem (on the same exact model TV) you described, and I looked around alot of blogs and DIY websites, and this seems to be the most prevalent root behind these convergence problems. I ordered the two chips for twelve bucks (for both), spent a few extra bucks (like $35) on some electronic tools / solder supplies, and followed procedures laid out here at, as well as paying strict attention to the service repair manual (which you said you already have?). The result? No more convergence problem, and I saved myself around $400 - $550 over having it done by a professional.

Seriously-- I bet this is the culprit. Just make sure if you're gonna do this that you FIRST check the six resistors (located at spots D-7011 thru D-7016) to make sure there are none burnt out / opened. It may be that one of those is fried also / instead. Since they are far easier to replace, it's good just to rule them out first.

And by the way, just FIY, when I did this I had kept the TV unplugged for about two weeks first, cuz I wanted to make sure all the capacitors were discharged and safe. Did I need that much time? Maybe not (some have said a few hours is sufficient), but I was also primarily concerned about the Flyback Transformer and its wires, which have the highest voltage (up to 30,000 volts) and can hold a charge pretty long. And I'm still here to write about it. So, check out the link, and see if you'd like to try this yourself, as well!

The others are almost right. You first hold down the minus button on your "TV", then at the same time hold down 0 on your remote. Make sure if you have a universal remote to swich it to TV.

I have an older PT-60LC14 and it blinks 5 red in five seconds then 2 orange immediately afterwards. Any suggestions would be appreciated!! It has been shutting off lately.

Presumably you have consulted the troubleshooting guide on p83 of the operator's guide ( ?
None of the problems listed there are an exact match for your description, and some of the 'solutions' are not what you want to hear (return to a dealer or Panasonic service centre), but it might give you some ideas.
You might try contacting Panasonic directly for advice describing the symptoms: they ought to be able to at least tell you what the flashing light codes mean.
You might also try getting hold of the Service manual for your TV which might describe the problem more accurately than the operator's guide. see eg (purchase option. There is more than one manual available, and they cover more than one product, but they include the 60" model) This seems to be a free download. the download link is apparently in quite small (ordinary) print. Watch out for advertising/download managers/unwanted software etc.

2. While holding down the (VOL -) key on the projection unit press the PIP or SPLIT key at the same time. Hold it for longer than 5 Seconds. The PIP or SPLIT key is model specific:
