Hi

Your power light is blinking three times which represents a high voltage shutdown usually occurring in the convergence IC's and support components of these TV's. They are known for this and is a very common problem. If you have electronic repair knowledge and equipment then you can certainly attempt the repair yourself. However, if you do not, it is VERY dangerous or even deadly in the back of these sets as they have high voltages running even when they are switched off and so you should call a technician for the job. I am sorry there is no consumer fix for you as it is a major fault in your circuitry. The typical cost to get this fixed by a pro is about $300 - and it doesn't mean that he/they will do a job better than you do. The parts are less than $100 (about $20-$30 for the IC's) if you want to do it yourself. Replacing only the IC's MAY solve the problem; however, many people have also had blown resistors requiring replacement. Why would you ask should you replace both of the IC's if only one is shot?! If one is shot the other one is not far away and for that little price of the chips it worth changing them both at the same time. Also the convergence board should be checked for cracked solder. If you replace the ICs and the resistors are shot, the ICs may blow again almost immediately, meaning you may have to do the repair twice.

Please do accept the solution and revert for further assistance.

Thanks
Rylee

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 PT-53WX42 53 in. Rear Projection Television turns on and then shuts off and then a red light starts to flash. Any help would be appreciated.


Most of these Panasonic sets have a error code---unplug the set for a minute----plug it back in and turn it on---does the red power light blink in a sequence---3 blinks, a pause and three blinks?

If it is 3,3 that is short protection and usually means one of the two convergence chips is bad.

Let me know what you find and I will be happy to help.

My tv does not come on and the red light inthe front flashes 3 ti


The 3 blink error code is indicating that the Convergence ICs have failed. You can get the repair kit for your model which contains both convergence IC and the six feed resistors and it also has step by step instructions with pictures that show how to do the repair. Heres a link to the repair kit for your model.

This sounds like a main power board issue. After you unplug it, it will work? Are you planning on trying to service it or having it serviced?
Thanks,

Panasonic HDTV Projection PT-47WX42F won't turn on


Your Set is going into shutdown mode due to the convergence section of your television. Thats what 3 blinks mean. It could be just the Convergence ICs and resistors or you may need a new Signal board TNP2AH035 Let Me know if you need further assistance with this problem.

Panasonic PT-53WX42 - When I turn the TV on, the red light comes on but, no sound or picture.


Does the light blink? If it is blinking a 3 code, the IC's need to be replaced. Those three lamps as you called them are not lamps, they are the three picture tubes.
