Question about Panasonic PT-53TW53 53" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
The picture is still there, but not very clear. Previous to the picture being distorted I've used the split picture option quite a bit. I wonder if that has anything to do with that. Please let me know, if I can fix this myself by buying a part or if I should call in a professional.

There are any number of possible failures that can cause the symptoms you're describing. For example, C509 a .47uf/250v mylar cap has been known to fail in those units causing the wavy lines. On the other hand convergence amp failures can do the same thing. That unit uses two STK392-110 Sanyo amps at pos# Ic7001,Ic7002 Panasonic p/n# C5aa00000203 and more in that circuit needs to be tested and signal traced to isolate all of the problem if the amps are the culprit. In short, I don't think this is one you want to tackle with less than a 20 mhz scope and some serious background in electronics.

Your TV most likely has a Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )
Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem
You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together convergence repair kits for most models.
The kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, thermal paste, etc. Everything you will need to do the repair yourself.
