Re: panasonic pt-51g53w

Usually, in the Panasonic projection sets that start but then shut right back off, one of the convergence IC's has shorted out and is drawing too much current. When the TV is turned on, the computer senses the extra current and shuts the set back off. The set should be serviced by a qualified tech familiar with Pansaonic projection sets.

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.

Panasonic pt-51g53w

Usually, when a Panasonic projection powers up for a few seconds and then shuts down, it is because one of the convergence IC's is shorted and drawing too much current. This is usually very easy to troubleshoot because the shorted IC causes one of the large reisitors near it to glow red hot just before the set shuts down. The set should be serviced by a qualified tech familiar with Panasonic projection sets.
