When I looked up the code, it is stating convergence. Chances are the STK chips have failed. I can't guarantee this is the problem but it is a good chance. If you do end up changing the STK chips, DO NOT use generic chips. They will not last, you will be lucky if they make it 2 weeks. I changed the chips on this exact set about 3 weeks ago and I was told that same thing by several techs. I can tell you that the site that Jean posted will not fix this problem and could even make things worse. That site pertains to a specific problem that is common in some Sony sets and should not be used to try to fix any other issue.

Please keep in mind many things can go wrong with TV sets and you should really do a lot of research before attempting any adjustment and or repair. There are high voltages present in some areas and they can reside even when the set is unplugged.

My panasonic projection tv 60'' has a power but auto shutoff after 5 seconds then blink red light 3 times


Dead power supply. I recommend a new tv rather than throw good money after this old thing. A new power supply will cost $200 or so plus installation. Sometimes dead power supplies take other components with them as the voltage surges.

The set has two common error codes: watch the red light blinking and count the sequence-----3 blinks is most common and is short protection--that one is fairly easy to fix---second most common is 5 blinks which means a short on the 140 volt line--that one is more complex to fix.

Powers Out and Power light blinks 3 times


If the picture turned yellow then that usually indicates a loss of blue. The blue CRT might have shorted out or the driver to it. The driver will be the lesser of cost in repairs.
