Re: PT= 53WX42F

This just happened on my TV too, I have the same unit and have absolutely no soldering experience at all. What would it cost to do this myself, and what would this cost to have someone come in and fix it, approximately?

Re: PT= 53WX42F

Does it blink three times if so its a convergence problem -your set uses stk392-110 i usually replace with stk392-150 or stk392-180 these are more stable. if you have no soldering experience or electronic experience. but if you want the challenge go for it. remember that there can be several thousand volts in this set even when unplugged.

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 the kit contains the parts and the CD with instructions for the repair.

Panasonic PT-53WX42F does not turn on, gives single flash code

my tv had the same problem and the B+140 was low. When I measured it, it was 89volts unfortunatly led me to the Flyback tra$former. after alot of troubleshooting work, I realized that the primary is short circuited. Also the horizontal output xsitor heats up alot on start up, thankfully it doesn't blow :)

I've had panasonic flybacks do this before to me. I havn't replaced my Flayback yet but when I pony up the $65.00 I expect (and pray) the TV to work fine. There is an off chance that something like the splitter or the foucus block caused this failure, but I doubt it.

Sounds like your convergence chips are going. Unless you are real handy with soldering iron I would suggest having a tv repair shop service it(probably cost $200-300). If you are handy then I believe the chips you need are Sanyo STK392-110. There should be 2 of them. be careful if you order them online, there are lots of chinese knock-offs out there.

Resistor or should have that resistor. Be sure to specify flame resistant 5% tolerance that is a convergence resistor so it needs to be flameproof and install it up off the board like the origional was.

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site They have put together convergence repair kits for most models.

The kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, thermal paste, etc. Everything you will need to do the repair yourself.
