Blue ghosting on Panasonic PT-47WX49E

I have a Panasonic PT-47wx49E. It was working fine when I shut it off last night. This morning when I turned it on, there is now a blue ghosting to the picture. The colors seem fine other that the blue seems to be doubled to the left of the screen, with a squggly blue line down the right side a couple of inches in. Any ideas? Trying to change the convergence did nothing.

    Thanks for the quick reply. I will get a couple of the IC's and give it a try. Anything else I will need?

    I will post my results after it is done.

    Thanks, Slinteriors great diagnosis and quick answers.

    Replaced the convergence IC's, good as new!

    One thing I did was go to Radio Shack and get a 40 pin IC socket. I then split it in half and cut the two extra sockets off the ends. I then soldered this to the board, put the IC's into the socket. That way if it happens again, much easier fix! No need to solder new ones, just pop the old ones out, slide the new ones in.

    two convergence IC's and soldering kit - $27.62

    40 pin IC socket Part # 276-1996A - $ 1.35

    Feeling knowing you did it yourself - Priceless

    Had the same problem on my PT-47WX51 except it was the red that was out of convergence. I checked my schematic and the same parts are used in my set. Thanks for the post!

Your convergence IVs need to be replaced. Its an easy repair if you can solder. you can get the two ICs you need at the following link. they also provide free installation instructions and free on line tech support while youre doing the repair. You need two ICs they are numbers STK392-110. Let me know if I can be of further assistance. I am one of servicemanuals support techs and board rebuilder.

    You will need a small tube of heat sink compound from radio shack cost 1.29. If you go through the link I supplied they will send the instructions that show everything thats involved

    even the type of solder Iron which works best.

Panasonic PT-47WX49E will not power on

Thats a power supply module going bad. Dont use it until a person with knowledge on TV see that. Or if you feel you can DIY open the back panel to see if there is a toasted or foreign object near the power supply area. Its located when you follow the main plug going into the back panel of your TV. Look for a dying Fuse too. And watch out for Capacitor that has still current, you may electicuted with that component. That parts its only for qualified servicemen area only.

PT-47WX49E Doesn't work

This is for sure a safety shutdown circuit that is shutting down this TV set. It is a hard call to pinpoint a problem such as this without first doing some troubleshooting on the TV set. You could have a short in the sweep power supply, the horizontal output transistor could be bad, therefore then the flyback is probably bad, or the vertical IC could be bad, there could be a regulator problem in the main power supply that could be bad, and also the convergence IC's can cause this problem. Almost any circuit inside this TV set can be detected and staop the set from starting up. Good Luck
