Question about Panasonic PT-53TWD63 53" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Panasonic PT-53TWD63, TV will not turn on, Red power light blinks

Last night watching tv, the colors seemed to separate (red, blue) then the picture went out. I tried to power cycle and nothing happened. I also unplugged it for approx 5 min and plugged back in. Hit power button an I could hear the tv turn on, but it would turn off in about 5 sec and the red power button on the front of the TV would flash 3 times go off for about 10-20 sec and then flash 3 times again. This continues until I unplug the TV. I am thinking it is either the CRTs or the bulb for the projector. Any suggestions. Thanks

It is most deffinately a convergence chip issue. The die for no reason. They can be bought online for around $10 dollars and anyone with experience with soldering can replace them pretty easily. I have done it.

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?

Hello, I have a 53-inch Panasonic PT-53WX42F TV, and it refuses to turn on. No picture, no sound. All it does is the tiny red power light blinks 3 times repeatedly. Can I fix this myself? What parts do I...


Thats a convergence failure when the led blinks 3 times. Your model uses the PT47WX42 convergence repair kit available from www.tvrepairworld.com the kit contains the parts and the CD with instructions for the repair.

Panasonic pt43lc14 no red color. picture is good. cannot get anything to look normal color after trying to adjust color/tint/picture etc. Have alot of blues and yellow, and brown. seems like no red.


It appears that your light engine is broken, I have the same problem. Have you recently changed the bulb with a non-panasonic part bought on the internet. I did this and think thats what caused the problem. I believe the new bulb burn at a higher temp thus causing damage to the Light engine filters

The Power Light is Red


yeah, should stay red when unit is turned off, indicating there's power but it's doing nothing.

Per user manual:
Solid red - power off (standby mode)
blinking red - power off (now cooling)
blinking green - power on (preparing to light lamp)
solid green - power on
