    Just got home from spending a ton on car repair, decided to relax and watch a movie, nope that's not going to happen. Having the same problem- started by teasing me by staying on for 2-3 minutes, now the audio comes on and the tv turns off about 2 seconds later. Can anybody tell me how much it was to get repaired? And what it ended up being

    The TV was fine but all of a sudden it just cut off. I have always had convergence problems on the outer edges. My power light also blinks 3 times and then repeats.

    i dont understand how the convergence amps..have anything to do with our tvs not powering up and the little red light flashing..if it was the convergence amps..the picture would still come on,but it would be out of line..our problem is that the picture comes on for a second..and then its off..and the power light keeps blinking three times waits a second and will do it over and over..almost like its locked up or something..

You need to have the convergence amps replaced. This unit takes two STK392-110 Ic's, but in your research to have a shop do the repairs ask them if they would use instead STK392-150's for greater reliability. When calling around to find a shop just ask approximately how much to replace the convergence amps.

Powers on for about 5 seconds and shuts off with 3 flashes of the power light. Continues to flash 3 times.


Hi: Three flashes for the power indicator indicates convergence failure, Most failures are the large black convergence IC's on the convergence board, have these replace to restore operation, The Part number should be on the chips themselves. But just in case the part number of the are STK-392-110, Replace them with 120 for extra life expectancy. (STK-392-120)

Panasonic PT-47WX42F does not come on light flashes 3 times HELP!


There is a service manual which should cover this model/chassis series:

Elektrotanya for electronics experts

(PDF format - free - no sign-up needed - 100% clean)

Page 11 ('auto diagnosis feature') shows a table of LED flashes and what each one means. I'd start by checking D-board (since that is power and deflection) and going from there.
