PT53WX54J Shut Off LED blinks 3 times

Hello I have a Panasonic PT53WX54J rear projection tv.I've had it since 2004 with no problems. Today it just shut itself off with no prior warning or picture distortion. I tried to power it back on and it clicks...but when it gets to the second click which usually turns on the picture nothing happens and the power LED blinks 3 times stops then blinks 3 times again and again. I took the back off and cleaned out the dust with compressed air and a vacuum.Tried again with no results. I read the article on the convergance amplifiers at chris palmers blogspot. Is there any other reason to get the 3 blinks or could I be certain that the convergance ic's are bad? Any other tests I can try?
** Another thing I noticed is the power LED does not glow as brightly when its trying to power up?
A little discoloration on resitor at R7013 and is it normal for what looks to be wax around the bottom of the picture tube and below on the circuit board?

Time to get a new TV. I have similar problem. In my case, the set turns off, LED blinking green for about a minute or 2, then the set will turn on by itself. Something the LED started to blink yellow after blinking green and then shuts off. I can turn it back on. This happens 3 or 4 times in an hour. After that, the TV stays on for as many hours as I want until I shut it off.
And then the problem repeats everytime I turn it on from a cold start.
I have my eyes on the 50 inch Plasma from Panasonic. Bestbuy has one for 999.99.

Your convergence ICs need to be changed. 3 Blinks is a convergence error. I can post a link where you can get new ICs and they include free instructions with pictures so you can do the repair yourself, they also offer instant messaging with a tech while your doing the repair thats a free service when you but their replacement parts. Let me know if you would like the link.
