Question about Panasonic PT-53WX42 53" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Blue Shadow Hello, pauldonp recommended me to you because of your expertise in this subject. I have a panasonic model: pt-53wx42f which has a blue shadow on the screen. After messing around with the convergence menu, I find that the blue crosshair will move up and down but not left to right. I read a few forums on this same problem and gathered that the problem is usually the stk392-110 chip, so I replaced both of them with the stk392-180. I started it back up, and have the exact same problem still. I checked the ohms on the 2w resistors, and the surface mount resistors around the chips and they all checked out good. Visually I don't see anything wrong... Any suggestions?

Check power supply voltages to run convergence amps....usually
around 20 volts + & --........should be present at the two watt
resistors....beyond basics,you might need a diagram to trace
the path of the blue horiz & vert....might be an open connection somewhere.........also, check for an open pico fuse.....not too
likely,tho,becuz of the symptom.....You might take the time to go over your own work,....I often backtrack when I get the same
as before.........Let me know.................T.

Hello, I have a 53-inch Panasonic PT-53WX42F TV, and it refuses to turn on. No picture, no sound. All it does is the tiny red power light blinks 3 times repeatedly. Can I fix this myself? What parts do I...

Thats a convergence failure when the led blinks 3 times. Your model uses the PT47WX42 convergence repair kit available from the kit contains the parts and the CD with instructions for the repair.
