Question about Panasonic PT-47X54 47" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

TV Screen pauses, looks like a puzzle, then starts again..................???

I have a 3 year old Panasonic PT 47 x 54. Have had burn in twice, had bulbs changed twice. Burn in is back, but, not the problem. About 4 times an hour, the screen freezes, then looks like a jigsaw puzzle, then, starts again where it left off. Lasts about 3 seconds, but, the more it happens the more annoying it is, any ideas??? It happens also, when I am watching a DVD. Thanks in advance.

Your problem is in the digital video processor circuit. This is a hard puppy to trouble shoot unless it happens all the time. Most of the sets I have seen do this, the main video processor IC is drfective and the repair was around 3 to 4 hundred bucks.

This sounds like a main power board issue. After you unplug it, it will work? Are you planning on trying to service it or having it serviced?

1. Unplug set for a few minutes.

2. Plug back in and turn on.

3. When red power light starts blinking--COUNT THE BLINKS.

4. THREE BLINKS, pause, THREE BLINKS (ETC) IS SHORT PROTECTION AND A DO IT YOURSELF repair for some people. I have complete instructions for this repair.

5. 5 blinks, pause and 5 blinks etc is short on 140 volt line and while not as easy as 3 blink error code it points to places to look at.

If this told you something you did not know, rate this solution as very helpful as I do this here for free.

Post a comment here when you know what error code is and I will help.

Replaced convergence chips, have new problem

Did you check the 2.2 ohm 2watt resistors? As often one or two will blow when the old ICs fail. The 3 blink error is indicating a problem with the convergence circuit still.

Call Panasonic and request for correction tool(software update) part#LSUQ0100. This comes with the instruction. Try this first before suspecting light engine.

Yellow streaks on tv screen

I have the same problem with the yellow blotch that keeps growing. I had a certified Panasonic technician look at it. It took him 15 minutes and $96 to tell me that the light engine had failed and it would cost $1800 to fix. I contacted Panasonic and they offered me a plasma at 20% off of their MSRP. It didn't amount to much when I realized I could negotiate for about the same on my own. The TV is 4 years old and I paid $2500 at the time. I doubt i will choose Panasonic again.

Sometimes, in the Panasonic projection sets, one of the convergence IC's shorts out and draws so much current that one of the resistors next to it glows red hot. The computer senses the extra current and shuts the set back off. This is quite an easy problem to correct, but the set should be serviced by a qualified tech familiar with panasonic projection sets.
