Question about Televison & Video

TV acts like it wants to turn on, but turns itself off

I have a Panasonic PT-53wx53G and it won't stay on. I can unplug it and when I turn it on, it acts like it will come on (make the click noise), but then it will make a whining noise and then turn itself off. It never gets to the point where it initializes the lamps. Basically all it does is makes the initial clicking noise like it is starting to boot up and then goes off. Also, the little red light by the power button blinks. Basically, I just want a ball park at what the problem might be and how much it would normally cost. If it's more than 3 or 4 hundred dollars, I'll jsut get a new one.

Sir,

try hard reset unplugged the Cable card, coaxial cable and digital audio cable from the set, probably the heat is causing to the set. also replace relays in the TV would solve the problem. It may be 400 to 500 $ it's out of pocket...check warranty better to replace the tv.

thanks
good luck

It sounds like the the transformer went out or a power board, it's definitely going to cost you, let me google it for you and see what the parts cost, there are a lot of posts "even some fixes from the experts in here", all I can tell you is from my own experience, once these tv's start to have problems, they only get more problems, I went through an 8 month ordeal with a 57 inch sony, that had a 5 yr extented warantee. I ended up 8 months later getting a gift card from the VP of the store.

It soulds like it may be your Flyback transformer.. this is what supplies the high voltage to the crt's (tubes) to fire them up. It is the black "box" with what looks to be like small spark plug wires coming out of it.. Flyback transformers can cost 25.00 to 300.00, it really just depends.. If you have a shop do this repair for you, you will probably end up spending a few hundred dollars..so use your judgement on this one.. If you have any electronics experience, download the service manual for the set and get the flyback ordered - change it yourself and save some money!

3D image on panasonic 53''


Sounds like the red and green images have shifted.

In your settings menu there should be an option for it to self adjust or manual adjust of the red and green images alignment.

Panasonic pt-53wx53g tries to turn on but goes right off


That is indicating that the convergence circuits have shutdown the set. You will need new Convergence ICs. They should be STK392-110 or STK392-120 either number works the 120 being the better chip. I will post a link where you can get the new ICs and they provide step by step instructions with pics so you can do the repair yourself. You will find your IC numbers under the section titled Convergence ICs just click on that and you will find your STK numbers.

Tv turned off


When the tv shuts done does the power light blink? If so what number does it blink? That will tell me which circuit your problem is in. Notice the number of blinks then let me know. Also what is the model number of your set.

Power comes on then goes back off.


More than likely, the two convergence IC's have to be replaced.
