Question about Panasonic PT-53WX53 53" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
Pt-53wx53 Panasonic Projection TV Replaced convergence chips because the tv had the red/green shadows going on. Put everything back into tv, now when I turn it on it shuts off as soon as audio and picture appear. Any ideas? It also has the 3 blinker red light happening every couple seconds next to the power button. Thanks :)
OK< likely one of the new chips are bad or when soldered in you shorted pins at that time----3 blinks is short protection and you are going to find ONE of the light blue 2.2 ohm resistors is open (usually discolored in middle).
Having changed hundreds of chips in this model once in a while you get a new one that is bad---replace both again.
How did you get at them----remove the board or pull the light box?

The buzzing noise you are hearing is most likely the ballast fire, this is good. You most likely have a bad lamp which is the best case for you. I would recommend pulling the lamp out and looking at it to see if its physically shattered or not.
The instructions for pulling the lamp can be found in your owners manual. If you do not have this anymore just look on the sides or the back of the tv for a small door with a screw or 2 in it. take those screws out and the door should come off, then take the screw(s) out of the lamp and pull it out. if you see glass rolling around inside you will need a new lamp. Let me know and I will help you find a good one at a good price.

Convergence ICs cost around 15-25 each there are only two of them. I would go ahead and replace both of them because if one goes the other one will follow shortly. I would make sure that it is just the convergence IC not something else, and if its over five years old dont pay more than $500.

I found the problem with my set! I pulled out the lamp to inspect and low and behold the filiment was burned out. Just ordered a new lamp to replace it. That should fix it.Very easy to pull the lamp .
