Reheat all the surface mount solder points on the Small Signal Board. Then realign the set including convergence menu. To enter service mode: power off the set for 10 sec, then hold down Vol- and Ch- buttons for 10 sec.

I just replaced the bulb last week, yet this time the TV will still not turn on and all three lights are still blinking.


It is possible that the replacement lamp is bad but more likely the TV has a protection mode that triggers wen the lamp goes out. Check the manual for ways to reset the lamp usage back to zero or a function that needs to be manually reset when the lamp is changed.

Continuous flashing green light


This link has the instructions on how to fix this problem and other similar problems. You
have nothing to lose, so I recommend that you try it.
http://www.somelifeblog.com/2007/06/sony-projection-tv-red-line-repair.html
This works with the two other colors, blue and green also. Not all models of Sony Projection
TVs have the red, green, and blue pots in the same order as the picture that is listed on
this link, so you may want to google search for your model's service manual. The service
manual can also help you be able to remove the cover for your particular model of TV. I was
able to find the service manual for my model, and sure enough, the order of the pots are
reversed on mine, so I would have been adjusting the wrong color. Read all of the comments
on this link too, because you can find other helpful tips and may even find someone with the
same model of TV as you that gives more specific instructions for your model.

You may also find your model's service manual here:

You can find information on Sony blink codes here:

I hope this helps you!
Fare well. :)

P.S. You can also clean the mirrors and dry dust while you're in there which can help with blurriness and focus. You may have to adjust all three colors to get the picture back.

According to Time Warner cable I no longer have TV Guide On Screen because the PBS piggy back signal is no longer being sent. Apparently, PBS is getting ready for HDTV. I live in Wilmington NC and we went...


PBS in my area says that my cable provider, Time Warner is no longer using the analog signal that contains TV Guide On Screen info. They did this to prepare for digital in Feb. Time Warner says they are waiting for Gemstar/Macrovision to provide a method for the On Screen feature to work. My source at PBS reckons there are over 25,000 cable card TV's that may lose this On Screen Guide. Apparently there is no legal requirement for TV Guide or your cable provider to send the guide.
Users may want to try and contact TV-Guide/Gemstar/Macrovision directly at their toll free number
1-800-386-7380. This may not be a solution but it may be a consolation for users wanting to know why they have lost their TV Guide On -Screen.

I'm having a problem with my Panasonic PT-53wx52


If the front power light is blinking three times then your TV has a problem with the convergence. You can get the correct replacement parts and full step by step photo instructions from www.TvRepairKits.com

TV screen went black, sound ok, red light blink 5 times


Be sure its blinking 5 times, count after it cycles the first time through the red lights. If it is fact 5 times, that is a lamp driver error.More likely it cycled 4 times, which is common on this model, if that's the case, then it's the fan. Most likely the large one in the rear...It's an easy fix, just pull the back off and replace the part.

What happens


you have the V17+ chassis. The error code blinks a 2 digit code. So yours is either blinking a 12 for no error or a 21 for xray protect shutdown. Count the blinks carefull. it should blink a number pause then blink the second number. You will no doubt need the service manual. I have a good source for mitsubishi service manuals. Let me know if youd like more info and let me know what you discover with the blinking Led.

Power comes on then goes back off.


More than likely, the two convergence IC's have to be replaced.
