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

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??

Re: power on, then off- blinking red light

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)

Re: power on, then off- blinking red light

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.

Mitsubishi big screen HD 1080 series model WS-55809. it switched off one day. and when i turn it back on it switches right back off. red light in front. what part do i need to fix it/

That model does not have a red light---Green.

If set powers up for a few seconds (green power light) and goes out do the self check the model indicated has:

On front of set (not with remote) press and hold both the input and menu buttons for at least 5 seconds and release both.

Green power light will blink a two digit error code like 2 blinks, 2 blinks a pause and repeat it several times.

Let me know what error code you find (if you have unplugged the set that will clear all errors and you have to plug it in and try to turn set on again---when it fails do the self check)

The red light is indicating the set has shut down for a specific reason. You can dtermine the reason by going to the sets front panel and pressing the menu button and the device/input button both in together and hold for 6 seconds. The light will switch and begin to blink a series of blinks( First number) and pause briefly then blink another number of blinks (second number) then it will repeat that same two digit blink code. Let me know the code and I will let you know what happened to shut the set down. Respond to this same post for assistance.

Power problem

Three blinks - B+ over voltage protection (OVP), unit goes to the standby mode then displays the 3 blink fault. This is also a problem in the power supply circuit, check T603 and R672.

Sony KDF-50WE655 will not power up. Red blight blinks 4 times

4 blinks shows problem either one or all 4 fans are not working AND internal temperature high error.

If you are familiar with TV repair and know basic electronics then unplug TV from AC outlet an take off back cover and check fans are running?
