Panasonic PT53WX53G flashing red light

Our Panasonic rear projection tv won't turn on and when we press the power button the red light flashes five times, pauses, then flashes five times again; it goes through this process a few times. Do you know what is wrong and how we can fix it?

Thank you!

You can try it, but through my experience, it just does not look good. You may not have a problem with it. Give it a shot. Good Luck.

Hi 3 blinks on panasonic is the conversion ics. very common repair for projectors. you need to replace two ics on mother board. The cost of the repair from a tv shop is 250,00.

At least now you Dont have to pay a service center to come out and diagnose
Just give them your model number and they can look up the parts. The job take 1 hour to do or so.

I hope this help thanks doctor video leadingedgeelectronics 1987

Your symptom sounds like a damaged convergence IC.


If this is the case the power LED should be blinking 3 times when trying to power the set up.

You should be able to get a local service center to repair this at
your house for between $350.00 - $450.00, If you want to repair this set yourself, I have some instructions below that will be a help to you.
While it is not a very hard repair, this repair can be a bit tricky. If you have a 45W soldering iron, solder, solder wick, and
heat sink compound you can repair it yourself.

When you remove the old IC's, please be sure to remove all of the old
heat sink compound, as it can act as an insulation for the new IC's and cause them to overheat. I usually clean the heat sinks with alcohol and a small rag.

There are two and large IC’s that control the convergence in a big screen set. Some of the newer sets only have one. If you only have one, it is right in the middle of the set on the center
circuit board. They are secured to a very large aluminum heat sink. They will have a part number stamped on them that will start with an STKXXX-XXX, like STK392-110.

Along with the convergence IC’s there will also be some associated components that will need to be replaced as well. There are some resistors that are part of the convergence circuit that will be open and need to be replaced. Most likely these will appear charred in the center. If you have an Ohm Meter or a DVM, check all the resistors that are close to the IC’s and you should be looking for either ones that have opened or have changed values.

If one of the convergence IC’s are found to be bad, I would replace them both, if one has gone bad the other may go soon. I usually order my parts from Andrews
Electronics in California, they will have the OEM components that you will need.
Their site is
http://www.andrewselectronics.com/welcome.aspx
And their
phone number is a 24-Hour Order Desk: (800) 274-4666
I recommend the
phone order so you can talk to the person about the different types of IC’s that are available.

I would also advise that the convergence IC’s be OEM or better, just because they are cheap does not mean that they are a
good deal. I have seen the cheap IC’s fail after a short time, even though they look exactly like the OEM IC’s. I think that the bottom line is that you will get what you pay for when it comes to the parts.

You can also try
http://www.tvrepairkits.com/ , I have not tried them yet, but they do carry OEM or better parts.

I hope this
information allows you to resolve this issue.
If you need further assistance please comment to this post and I will try to help you further.

Thanks for using FixYa

Hi,

The most common cause of Panasonic Rear Projection LCD TVs not starting is bulb failure. The PT-60LC13 users manual gives some help in translating the LEDs on the front of the TV.

If the TV worked normally for a period of time (months or years) and won't start, the most likely cause is bulb failure. There is no way to measure the bulb, sometimes the bulb is visibly damaged when it fails. Remove the Lamp Assembly and look at the bulb.

If there was an On-Screen Lamp Replace warning and TV won't start, bulb has failed.

The first step with all Panasonic Rear Projection TV "No Picture" problems is bulb replacement. If that does not remedy the problem, get a technician, there are no user serviceable parts. Guessing if the ballast, power supply, controller board or optical engine is faulty is not practical.

The Panasonic Lamp Gallery shows all Panasonic models and Lamp Numbers. There is also a link to Panasonic DIY bulb and lamp replacement.

Won't turn on, flashing red light


It seems you ballast is going out, i recommend you replaced, don't waste money buying lamps with this issue, get the ballast, they run around 60dll so it's a good deal, go to discountdashmerchantdotcom i've been getting parts from them and they offer great service, it's worth giving them a shot :)
