Question about Panasonic PT-47WX42 47" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

Power on, then off- blinking red light

I need to know where to look for help. Our 47W will turn on for a few seconds and then off and a red light will blink 3 times about every 6 secs. I'm hoping someone out there knows what this blinking sequence means or what the problem is-easily fixable or expensive repair??

Actually, I had the same problem a few weeks ago.  I had to replace the convergence chips on my motherboard.  You can have it done "professionally" and be out about 5 bills (hundred that is) or you can spend about 35 bucks and do it your self (that includes new chips soldering iron)

I have the same problem. I took the back off and it appears that the Green light has gone out. The TV will not run with out all three lights. I am looking for just the green light, but all I can find is the whole unit for almost what the tv cost.
