Re: Will not power on but red blinker is on.

Your set likely has a bad convergence ouput ic that has caused a fuse to blow. The convergence output ic type number is STK392-110. These can be replaced with STK392-120 or STK394-160. It is good practice to replace both ic's because the one that is not defectie now will likely fail soon. The fuse may be a small glass fuse or a pico fuse. One is for about +28V and the other is for about -28V. Also to the left of the heat sinks for the convergence output ic'S you will find (2)small wires that have black insulation on them. It is very possible that one or the other of these have bad solder connnections.

Pt-53wx53 Panasonic Projection TV Turns off

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?

** TV won't turn on.** No picture or sound. Please Help !

If the red light won't come on it is not getting power.First,try plugging it in to a different outlet,or unplug one of the gadgets you know is working and plug the tv in there.You are simply switching.If you know that there is power coming from the outlet and it still won't come on then you'll have to check the cord;don't go much farther than that without expert help.

No picture no sound, red light on, left unplugged over-nite, no change. Turn on/off a number of times, got back perfect picture/sound. Turn off, same problem, no picture/sound, red light on. Tried...

First if the model number is right here: When the red light is on about 80% of the set inside is powered up and running all out.

On these sets if you turn it off and the red light does not go out one of the relays on the power board is engaged or stuck in the closed position.

If I remember this model it has three black rectangular plastic relays on the power supply board(follow power cord into the set to see if this is the case.)

Relays have voltage and type marked on top (like 12 vdc etc).

Carefully with back removed what I would do is with something NOT metal tap on each relay until (with set turned off) the red light goes out.

That is the bad relay----if set has 3 I usually replace all as only 4 solder connections each and they are not real expensive.

I saw one of these sets where the customer had been gone for a month and when she returned set appeared to be off but Red light for power was on.

The set was so hot I tapped on the relays and then when I knew which was bad shut the set off and unplugged it to let it cool off.

I am saying if you leave the set plugged in and the red light is on There is the chance it may overheat to the point where you could have a fire.

Let me know if you have questions.

Just a thought, but check all of the pico fuses for a blown fuse. The pico fuses look like a small yellow resistor. Some Hitachi's are famous for having a blown hi-volt ceramic capacitor and a blown pico fuse.
I think the red led on is a short protect indicator, but I could be mistaken.

Need Help big screen turns on thens goes off

a tv has two components, firstly a power supply produces high voltage to trigger a line transformer, in turn a transformer produces smaller voltages. firstly check if the ht is constantly been produced from a supply, if this is there than go to a line transformer, and check voltages at the output.
