OK, three blinks is error code for short protection--considering you are describing a convergence problem what you have is one of the two STK-392-110 convergence chips is shorted.

The chips are about 2 1 /2 inches wide by 1 1/2 inches tall and are black in color. They are mounted on metal heat sinks with fins and are side by side--they will have the Stk-392-110 number printed on them in white letters.

If you locate them take a good look at all the light blue resistors in front of them--most are marked 2.2 ohms---look for any that are white or discolored in the middle---if you find one or more YOU HAVE FOUND YOUR PROBLEM.

BOTH chips and any bad resistors need to be replaced and the set adjusted. If you can do this repair you can save a lot of money as you can buy both chips (a pair) on Ebay for about 12 dollars plus shipping.

I have start to finish instructions for this repair on this type of set but I cannot post MY email here-NOT permitted to post MY email.


If you cannot do this repair yourself, shop around your area--most shops charge 300-400 for this kind of repair--I do them here for 200-250 and have done hundreds of them.
If they say it has to go to the shop--keep looking as any good tech can do this repair in your home in about 1 hour.

I have advice: DOES THE POWER LIGHT GO OFF AND THEN BLINK?

This set has a self check feature---the blinking power light should indicate what is wrong------a series of 3 blinks with a pause is short protection---common here.

A series of 5 Blinks means a short on the 140 volt line, more serious than 3 blinks but still fixable.

These sets all have a "SOS" SYSTEM---at least three protection circuits that will engage if something wrong and not allow the set to come on.

Let me know if a sequence of blinks---easy to miss if you do not know about it.

If this information helped you rate this solution as very helpful as I do this here for free.

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.
