I had the same problem and stumbled on the fix. It seems there is a factory defect. Open the lamp cover and you will probobly notice that the blue shut off switch on the left side is landing on top od the lamp cover. Reach down with a pencil or something and make sure the switch is under the tab on the lamp cover. My 50 DLP has not shut down since I set the switch properly. Free fix... try it.

My panasonic pt-53tw53 wont turn on. The power light blinks 3 times then pause then three times....etc. If I unplug the set and plug it back in, it will work again but just for a short time, then shuts...


The 3 blink error is the convergence circuits need repair. The Panasonic repair kit PT53WX53 convergence repair kit is the correct kit for your model. Its available from www.tvrepairworld.com and the kit contains the parts and the CD with instructions.

Panasonic PT-53TW53; Red shadows appear and then the t.v. shuts down.


The convergence output IC's have failed. Only fix is to replace them. These are large amplifier IC's bolted to heatsinks and have a high failure rate in all projection sets.

Standby light blinking 3 times means a convergence error. The two convergence IC's need to be changed Panasonic part# C5AA00000203 (do not substitute with a generic STK#) This is about a $300-$400 repair.
