It is the the convergence IC that need to be change on the convergence board, and also check for defective electrolytic caps and low ohm resisters that have changed in values too. You can also buy a new convergence module and replace the one that is in it. The have it repair you are looking at around 400.

The picture is wavy or gone still have sound


Projection TV sets have two very common problems listed below.

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.

When its out of alignment the video will look 3-D, wavy, distorted, etc. Most of the time you just need to adjust your convergence in the menu. 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.
You can get more information and a DIY convergenece repair kit with instructions from the link below.

Here are some of the most common problems with these sets...

*Screen Looks 3-D
*Colors wont align
*Screen may look distorted or warped
*No Audio/Video - TV Shuts down - May also make a constant chirping sound

Problem #2 - Another common problem is dull or washed out video.

Your set may have one or more of the following symptoms....

*Dull looking picture
*White looking picture
*Halos around objects
*Red/Orange looking picture

Picture doesn't work..Panasonic 47 inch TV PT-47WX42


Dood, if you really needed a new mother board for your TV the biggest problem on your hands would be finding the replacement.  The motherboard is so easy to remove it would make you laugh.  I think it has four clip bridges and four of five screws.  You seperate the clip bridges, take the screws off and maybe take a picture of the cables so you remember where to plug them in and you're done.  Like I said, take a snap shot so you dont forget where to put your cables back in.
