Question about Panasonic PT-53TW53 53" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
We have the Panasonic PT-56TW53 and it's IC's went. I have been reading mix reports about which IC's to get.
I went to the Parts Store, but they seem to be made by Panasonic or at least that is what it states when we look up our model. They do offer Toshiba brand.
Do we go with the Panasonic Brand or do we opt for another brand? We don't want the same thing to happen again so soon, so we are reluctant to get the Panasonic Brand.
If someone has done this replacement and can offer any advice as to where and what brand to purchase, I would be thankful. Any help or advice will be greatly appreciated.
This unit used STK392-110 ICs. THese can be purchased from any reputable supplier. I have used Toshiba, Sanken and others without problems for years. When you install them, make sure that you also use plenty of heat sink compound (white stuff) on the back between the IC and the heat sink. This will insure good heat transfer and make the ICs last longer. Also check the area for any low valued resistors that may have changed values or opened up.

Always stick with the manufacturers brand ! but you will need to check the resistors on the IC lines to make sure thier values are not off , because that will cause the IC to go again no matter what brand IC you use. other components in line of the IC should also be checked for bad values as they can also cause malfunction and breakdown of an IC and its circuit components
