43FDX15B No picture, Power light stays on


Just a thought, but check all of the pico fuses for a blown fuse. The pico fuses look like a small yellow resistor. Some Hitachi's are famous for having a blown hi-volt ceramic capacitor and a blown pico fuse.
I think the red led on is a short protect indicator, but I could be mistaken.

NO PICTURE OR SOUND JUST A RED LIGHT


DVD MIKE,

do me a favor, if the set is still together, please remove the back, and find the convergence card... it is on the upper right hand side. Unplug the RED plastic plug ONLY. Now try to turn on the TV. If it turns on, but the picture looks completely out of convergence, then yo uneed to replace the 2 STK392-040 IC's and you will have to test all of the 3.9 ohm resistors on the board. You will usually find 1 or 2 bad. let me know what you find.

My Panasonic tv pt53wx53g wont turn on it blinks 3 red lights


The 3 blinks is a error code for the convergence circuit. You can get the convergence repair kit for your model at the following link which contains both Convergence ICs and all six feed resistors and they include step by step instructions with pictures that show how to do the repair yourself. Heres a link to the proper kit for your model Panasonic.

Toshiba 57H81 Flashing Red Power Light, Blown Fused F850+F852


Solved by resoldering some solder joints!!!!!!!
********
Toshiba Model 57H81 Rear Projection TV - Purchased 11-09-2001

Problem: Toshiba 57H81 Flashing Red Power Light, No Picture/Sound, Blown Fuses F850 + F852

Symptoms January, 2009:

  • Upon turning on set I got flashing red power light and nothing else.
  • Removing plug for one minute and plugging in results in:
    • Audible click, steady red power light for 2 seconds then slow flashing red light
    • Pushing power button results in steady red for about 2 seconds then slow flashing red light, no other set activity
  • Removing power cord for several hours and plugging back in made no change
    • Audible click, steady red for about 2 seconds then slow flashing red light
  • Possible related note: Over past several months occasionally the entire screen would flicker momentarily and at other times be problem free for weeks.
  • Fuses F850 and F852 found blown

Repairs Made:
  • PD0074 DEF/CON Power Board
    • There are two main power supply capacitors in this set. They are C-809 and C-810. One their negative lead on the printed circuit board re-soldered leads and nearby contacts. I’m told that because the factory left out a printed circuit board eyelet, the connection will come loose over time. When I called Toshiba customer service they said there was a known solder joint problem causing blinking red light.
    • Replaced blown fuses F850 and F852.
      • I actually installed a fuse panel on the inside of the cabinet and routed the fuse connections here instead of ordering the special fuses and replacing them on the circuit board.
      • Had to use a 5 Amp SLO-BLOW for F850. Fast blow does not survive power up. Get the red blinking light.
      • Used a fast blow 2 Amp for F852.
  • PD0073 SIGNAL Board
    • Re-soldered Q751 + Q752 STK392-110 Convergence Amps
    • Re-soldered adjacent pads that looks suspicious

Total Cost to Repair about $10
  • Twelve hours of my time over three days to research issue, disassemble set, make repairs, add fuse panel.
  • Already owned Service Manual and Circuit diagrams from a different 2004 repair.
  • Less than ten dollars at Radio Shack for fuses and fuse panel. Already had wires, etc.
  • Some solder. Already owned de-soldering tools, etc.
  • Visited both local authorized Toshiba factory service repair facilities. One said repair would have to include replacing Q751 + Q752 STK392-110 Convergence Amps with ST392-180, and realigning set for a total of $500+ and it would be more if they had to order a power board. NO THANK YOU! Other shop said $65 for site visit and $30 to make an estimate that could be applied to repair.

More than likely it is a convergence problem. Best way to tell is to unplug the plugs marked red conv, blue conv, and green conv. Careful not to unplug yoke plugs by mistake, and make sure you mark plug and board when disconnecting. If convergence amps are the problem, set should power up with convergence plugs disconnected. Do not leave set playing very long. This is just to verify problem. Your welcome, Russmann.

Red blinking light


It's most likely convergence -- the small board up and to the right inside the back of the TV, which has two large amp Ic's attached to it..
Unplug the +/- 20v line on the fron left corner of that board (red in color) and then try and power on the set... If the set comes on the board needs to be repaired and it's an easy unplug and two screws that mount it inside.

Blinking red light


I had the same similar problem and through the process of unplugging and re-plugging the set I finally got the set to come on and stay on, then smoke started coming from the back of the tv from a convergence chip. What I found out was that the chip shorted out tripping the tv safety and I overcame that burning the bad chip completely out eliminating the short but with the blue color off. The chips generally are only $5-10 from partstore.com -
 BTW - I think this is one of the better picture quality projection tv's out there compared to my hitachi, sony, and rca and even a friend's mitsubishi.
