Question about Panasonic PT-47WX53 47" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

Blue streak appears across the tv

We have a four-year old 47" that just developed a double blue streak across the entire screen - like two long curved horizontal streaks. Sound like something we might be able to fix ourselves??

Thanks!

I have a KP-51ws520 that a friend gave up on and bought a new LCD TV. About a year ago, after a power outage in our neighborhood, this tv now has noticeable streaks across the screen at all times. Is...


It depends on what the problem actually is; are the streaks colors like red or blue outlines around lettering etc?

The more you tell me the better I can help. I will post a photo or two of what convergence problems look like.
This set is also prone to another problem, on a blank video input look at the screen: you should only see Video 1 (etc) and if you see faint curved lines (red, green or blue) and or the back ground is also wrong color you have the second problem.

let me know which it is.. If this information helped you rate this solution as very helpful as I do this here for free.

Blue dots and streaks


Blue streaks might have been just your video connection and problem with signaling. But, blue dots is faulty light engine, aka "optical block". The engine in this could be a defective LCD array. Very expensive, a optical block is about $850. Hope it's still under warranty. You could get a rebuilt one, possibly. Need service adjustment too. Bad problem that Sony has with these kinds of sets.

Two blue streaks across the screen


sounds like the blue convergence or the Blue CRT needs a coolant change. If the picture apaers 3d its the Convergence. If the color seem abnormal or not true tones its the CRT coolant

Streaky copies


It probably has several issues - optics dirty, and drum, and blade failing. I would also imagine that even the Solid "blacks" aren't as black as they could be, and that would be the developer. This machine is in the 17 year old range, and I wouldn't spend dime on it

Blue wide streaks in my 42" Sony TV model KDFE42A10.


I have the same TV and the same problem and it's also just over 2 years old (bought it June 2006) when the problem started. Every day, I saw the blue streak cover more of the tv, now 6 months later, it has all turned to green and the entire tv has a green tint. It looks like I am watching tv in murky green water.
I am lucky that I purchased the additional warranty on the tv and finally got around to calling them. I hate to tell you this, but they told me that the optical light has gone up and they are replacing the tv.

PT-47WX, Blue streaks across the screen?


It is not a bulb. It is a picture tube. If there are thin blue lines across the entire screen, not just the edges, and the picture itself looks too blue, it means that the blue picture tube is being driven too hard. This could be because the blue screen voltage is too high, the boost voltage on the blue picture tube is too low, or the video output is leaky or shorted. If the picture has what looks like blue arcs and double images on one or more sides of the picture, it means that one of your convergence IC's has burned out and needs to be replaced. These are things that should be tested and serviced by a qualified tech, so allow an experienced tech to handle it for you.
