Question about Televison & Video

I have a Panasonic PT-56TW53G television and it will not turn on. I turn on the power button and you hear a click in the back. The LED turns on and blinks 5 times does this tell you what might be wrong.

    Checked the fuse it is fine. If the fuse had popped the LED would not turn on.

Could be a power supply problem. Possibly a short.

It is probably a problem with the convergence resistor it is possible that it is blown up and needed to be replaced. if your Television still has a warranty i would suggest to have it check where you bought it. if not i would suggest to have it checked by a technician.

hope that helps..

Its the problem in the power supply board.

    If the timer/standby indicator is blinking, this could be an indication of the problem with the unit. The diagnostic blinking will occur automatically with no action required by you to engage it. The timing of the blinking you see would be as follows: two to eight blinks (depending on the fault) about a third of a second apart, then pauses for 3 seconds, then the two to eight blinks about a third of a second apart again. Here is a list of the problems that might have occurred indicated by the number of blinks. The words in parentheses are those which you will see for each of these faults on a diagnosis screen described later in this article. Unit is dead and there are no blinks---- Problem in the standby power section. Might check fuse, R607, Q601, IC601, R612 and VDR601 (should show open). Continuous blink once a second, No pausing as discussed above---- No reply from the jungle IC301 (data bus is busy, shorted to ground or held high), IK video path is defective. One blink---- not used for the self-diagnosis. Two blinks---- B+ over current protection (OCP), unit goes to the standby mode then displays the 2 blink fault. Could be a short in the power supply of any of the circuits. Three Blinks---- B+ over voltage protection (OVP), unit goes to the standby mode then displays the 3 blink fault. This is also a problem in the power supply circuit, check T603 and R672. Four Blinks---- No vertical deflection (V STOP), Screen goes to a single horizontal line then the video signal muted. Check IC1509, Q1505. Five Blinks---- AKB circuit (AKB), the timer/ standby indicator blinks for about 30 seconds then goes to the self-diagnosis function. Something is wrong with the video. Check video out, Q705, 732, 761 and other components on the C board. Also check Q218, 219, 220 on the A board. Also, unit can be in IK blanking. Try turning up screen slightly. Six blinks---- No horizontal (H STOP), no raster, goes to the blinking self-diagnosis function immediately. Check C515 and 516 and the jungle IC, IC206. Seven blinks---- High voltage shutdown. The high voltage has exceeded 33k and the unit goes immediately into safety shutdown. Check power supply regulation and horizontal circuits. Eight blinks---- Problem with the audio (AUDIO), unit goes to standby and blinks the self-diagnosis code. Check IC406 audio amp, PS401 and 402. Intermittent problems?? This is a great feature. You can also bring up these fault codes ON-SCREEN to see a list of the problem numbers with the abbreviation of the problem and the number of times this problem has occurred. This is slightly different then entering the service mode. To see the diagnostic screen, press the following buttons: Display, Channel, 5, Volume Minus, (Not plus), then power. This brings up a screen with a list of problems and number of times they have occurred. Each of the problem names is abbreviated as, “OCP”, “OVP”, “V STOP”, ETC. We have repeated them in parentheses in the text for the “Blinks” described above so you can correlate between the diagnostic screen and the blink codes. So, now that you know about these self-diagnostics, how do you use them? Say that you have a set with a black screen. You see the LED is blinking 4 times…. This would tell you that you have no vertical and that is why the video is muted. If it was blinking 6 times, you would know that you have a horizontal fault. It’s not a sure cure, but it’s a little better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick. IMPORTANT: After you repair the unit, Please clear the values on this diagnostic screen. These codes do not reset themselves after the fault is corrected, so if you don’t clear them, you’ll be seeing “old” fault codes the next time you enter this screen. Clearing is done by going into the service mode (display, channel, 5, volume plus, then power) then press 8 and ENTER, which of course returns everything to the factory preset condition.

The 3 times LED code points to no fan rotation. There are 2 fans. Check the larger fan first, p/n = FBL12G12LS, located near the lamp. Even though that fan may be rotating, it may be slow.
