For the majority of phillips/magnavox universal remotes: Hold code search button down till red light satys on. Press the tv button and the red light should blink and stay lit. With the tv on, push the power button repeatedly until the tv turns off.(dont push the power button again after the tv turns off or it will go to the next code). Push the mute button to save the setting.

Panasonic PT-47wx53, No power, 3 Blinks

This morning I turned on my tv and after about 2 minutes it shut itself off. The power led on the front is blinking 3 times. I have tried other power outlets, and I have left it unplugged for 3 hours then plugged it back in. Each time, it attempts to come on but returns to the 3 blink with no picture and sound.

Panasonic PT53WX42F with same problem. 3 blinks after power on for a few seconds, no picture or sound. Solution: replaced two convergence ICs (STK392-XXX) located on the large green printed circuit board. ICs are very large and screwed into two large heat sinks and soldered to board. Cost is approximately $6 each. Easy to replace if careful. May be able to access solder joints on bottom of board by removing screen on bottom of cabinet or simply remove 4 screws that anchor plastic holder to cabinet and tilt up. I did not disconnect any inter-board connections. Remove heat sink screws. Desolder using suction bulb or solder sucker. Works great. Finish off with solderwick braid if necessary to clear holes. 40 watt iron is enough do not apply too much heat to damage board lands. Remove IC. Clean heat sink by scraping away white heat sync compound. Apply generous amount of heat sync compound to new IC and coat evenly. Align and insert new IC holes, resolder with thin resin core solder being careful not bridge lands. Refasten to heat sink. Clean board and inspect for good joints and no bridging. Refasten plastic board holder. Carefully clean projection lenses while back is off tv. Power up and it should be fixed. Parts are obtainable on-line. Solder tools and board cleaner are available at Radio Shack or on-line also. I spent $20 on parts and supplies. This is not hard just a bit tedious. You can do it.

Panasonic PT-47WX53G Projection TV - convergence problem, can not align completely

I have a Panasonic PT-47WX53G 47" Projection TV that developed a convergence problem a few months ago. I ordered from Panasonic the factory service manual. From that and talking a panasonic factory shop they thought it could be the convergence board. I ordered and replaced the convergence board DC-board p/n TNPAA120. It took 3-4 months to receive the board, pluged it in and still had the same problem that it will not align all the way. All the alignment is done in software via the remote. I also bought the factory alignment template to help with the alignment but it just won't align all the way. Any help here would be appreciated.

I don't know why that guy told you to replace your "DC" board (that is the one you mean, right?) More likely than not, it's your convergence amp integrated circuits (ICs). I had what I think was the same problem (on the same exact model TV) you described, and I looked around alot of blogs and DIY websites, and this seems to be the most prevalent root behind these convergence problems. I ordered the two chips for twelve bucks (for both), spent a few extra bucks (like $35) on some electronic tools / solder supplies, and followed procedures laid out here at http://cmpalmer.blogspot.com/2006/11/fixing-my-own-tv-part-i.html, as well as paying strict attention to the service repair manual (which you said you already have?). The result? No more convergence problem, and I saved myself around $400 - $550 over having it done by a professional.

Seriously-- I bet this is the culprit. Just make sure if you're gonna do this that you FIRST check the six resistors (located at spots D-7011 thru D-7016) to make sure there are none burnt out / opened. It may be that one of those is fried also / instead. Since they are far easier to replace, it's good just to rule them out first.

And by the way, just FIY, when I did this I had kept the TV unplugged for about two weeks first, cuz I wanted to make sure all the capacitors were discharged and safe. Did I need that much time? Maybe not (some have said a few hours is sufficient), but I was also primarily concerned about the Flyback Transformer and its wires, which have the highest voltage (up to 30,000 volts) and can hold a charge pretty long. And I'm still here to write about it. So, check out the link, and see if you'd like to try this yourself, as well!

Phantom horizontal upward-scrolling lines... from a PS3 with HDMI to DVI

I have had a Panasonic PT-47WX53 rear projection HDTV for about four years now, and all has seemed fine up until this past week when I got a PS3 for Christmas. I only have DVI for a digital input on the TV. I had bought a $100 DVI-to-DVI cable about a year or so ago, to use with a Hi-Def cable-box at the time. However, my cable-service provider told me that they had not enabled the use of that output on their boxes, but I kept the cable anyhow in the hopes that that would change. It didn't.
Anyhow, somewhere in between then and now I also picked up a $20 DVI to HDMI adapter end for my expensive cable, to update it (as everything is now all HDMI, including the PS3) so I wouldn't simply LOSE the hundred bucks I had invested in it.
So when I got the PS3 last week, I set all the settings on both it and the TV (correctly, because I get picture and sound) for using the digital DVI cable with the HDMI adapter.
The problem is, after trying out a few Blu-Ray movies, I noticed a few horizontal "ghost" bars scrolling up my screen. They are not as noticeable when there is a bright image pictured on the screen (which is probably why I did not see them at first) but whenever the screen is predominantly darker, these bars are obnoxiously present. I checked some of the other inputs on the TV (antenna, component, etc.) and I DO notice a similar but far more faint image that I would almost never have seen if I had not been looking for it.
My question is threefold:

1. Is this a form of electromagnetic interference?
2. If not, then what is it?
and
3. How do I fix it (cuz it's bugging the crap out of me)?

First of all are you sure you were in the factory menu this step requires alot of known how!!!!!! By using your hand unit only customer controls can be reached unless you know factory menu setup. Which starts like this ,make sure antenna to cable then go to menu set sleep timer to 30 mins exit out now enter ch 124 then press v- down on tv you should now see on top CHK ,also these sets have double convergence patterens.if you were in factory set up for more information look in www.freelists.org techassist/09-2005 .let me know if you still need help.

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

  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.

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.

The most likely cause is shorted convergence chips and possibly a few pico fuses.

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 a convergenece repair kit with instructions from the links below.

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

Problem #1) Convergence

Yours may have one or more of the following symptoms...

*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

You can see some more examples and find a fix herebb0cf99.pnghttp://www.fixya.com/support/r2861467-solution_video_looking_whiteish_dull
