Question about Panasonic PT-53WX53 53" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
My set will not power on, it will click and then the power light will flash 5 times.
Sorry to disagree with the previous hinter, 3 FLASHES is a convergence problem for your model set. This data is direct from the Panasonic manual.
5 flashes is a DG board problem. Unlikely the manual is wrong on their website... (Never hurts to change the convergence ICs anyway) However, the board can only be rebuilt by Panasonic at the Elgin, Illinois plant. You might be able to find a board at a distributor, but anyway you look at it the thing's pretty expensive.
Look on the "A" board for corrosion damage or on the separate plug-in DG board. I've seen moisture condense off the CRT chassis ( or a possible CRT leak) and drip directly on the DG board flatpacks.
