Question about Panasonic PT-47WX53 47" Rear Projection HDTV

1 Answer

TV turns on for about 10-15 min then turns off

TV has been working fine. Purchased it new in 2003. Just yesterday it started its problem. The TV will turn on for anywhere from 10 to 20 mins then shut off. The power light on the front will blink. If we unplug it and plug it back in it will turn on again for another 10 or so mins.

3 blinks means the convergence circuits are shutting the set down. Usually the convergence ICs will take care of the problem, but I would recommend getting the service manual from the following link, as they will provide you free support to help you diagnose why it wont start as usually the convergence ICs wont prevent a set from powering up, unless another component in the convergence circuit has failed.
