  1. Steve's PT-53WX53G Project

    Panasonic / Technics
    Update on this thread - I was able to recover this set, the flow of the repair steps get a bit muddied up, but just read the whole thread and you should be able to fix the convergence on your set just fine. /Steve ================== Start of Original Thread ======================== Hi Guys...
  2. Steve's WS-65909 project
