Question about Panasonic PT-53X54 53" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
Hello I have a Panasonic PT53WX54J rear projection tv.I've had it since 2004 with no problems. Today it just shut itself off with no prior warning or picture distortion. I tried to power it back on and it clicks...but when it gets to the second click which usually turns on the picture nothing happens and the power LED blinks 3 times stops then blinks 3 times again and again. I took the back off and cleaned out the dust with compressed air and a vacuum.Tried again with no results. I read the article on the convergance amplifiers at chris palmers blogspot. Is there any other reason to get the 3 blinks or could I be certain that the convergance ic's are bad? Any other tests I can try? ** Another thing I noticed is the power LED does not glow as brightly when its trying to power up? A little discoloration on resitor at R7013 and is it normal for what looks to be wax around the bottom of the picture tube and below on the circuit board? im having the same problem with my tv but, it is resistor 7011 that is discolored on mine. for some reason there is too much current running through this part of the circuit. i beleive it has something to do with a ic.
