Your symptom sounds like a damaged convergence IC.

This is a common failure for this particular television. The power light is blinking indicate a short in the power supply,

There are two and large IC’s that control the convergence in a big screen set. Some of the newer sets only have one. They are secured to a very large aluminum heat sink. They will have a part number stamped on them that will start with an STKXXX-XXX, like STK392-110, and they are located on the signal board (on the left as you look into the back of the set).

Along with the convergence IC’s there will also be some associated components that will need to be replaced as well. There are some resistors that are part of the convergence circuit that will be open and need to be replaced. Most likely these will appear charred in the center. If you have an Ohm Meter or a DVM, check all the resistors that are close to the IC’s and you should be looking for either ones that have opened or have changed values.
There are also two resistors on the front of the board located in the middle that are fusible link resistors, these should be checked for opens and replaced if they are found so.

If one of the convergence IC’s are found to be bad, I would replace them both, if one has gone bad the other may go soon. I usually order my parts from Andrews Electronics in California, they will have the OEM components that you will need.
Their site is http://www.andrewselectronics.com/welcome.aspx
And their phone number is a 24-Hour Order Desk: (800) 274-4666
I recommend the phone order so you can talk to the person about the different types of IC’s that are available.

I would also advise that the convergence IC’s be OEM or better, just because they are cheap does not mean that they are a good deal. I have seen the cheap IC’s fail after a short time, even though they look exactly like the OEM IC’s. I think that the bottom line is that you will get what you pay for when it comes to the parts.

You can also try http://www.tvrepairkits.com/ , I have not tried them yet, but they do carry OEM or better parts.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.
If you need further assistance please comment to this post and I will try to help you further.

I have a 51" Panasonic Rear Projection HDTV,


Try disconnecting all of your HDMI cables and plugging the power cord of the TV into another wall outlet. If this resolves the issue, you may have had a small power surge from either your wall outlet or one of your source devices. It is recommended to connect your TV to a surge protector if you haven't done so already.

Time to get a new TV. I have similar problem. In my case, the set turns off, LED blinking green for about a minute or 2, then the set will turn on by itself. Something the LED started to blink yellow after blinking green and then shuts off. I can turn it back on. This happens 3 or 4 times in an hour. After that, the TV stays on for as many hours as I want until I shut it off.
And then the problem repeats everytime I turn it on from a cold start.
I have my eyes on the 50 inch Plasma from Panasonic. Bestbuy has one for 999.99.

Pt-51hx42f 3 red blinking lights come on when i try to turn on tv


hi friend i appreciate the words of praise that you have given, but i only know what i have studied and still do study. i also learn more as i repair more. i wish i could give you an answer to the three blinks, but panasonic does not share its information as freely as sony. i will tell you this. i have replaced the convergence chips before. i have seen the burned resistors before. and i have seen the set come on and last from one day to one week. if you are going to get chips i would replace all of them and i would definitely not go cheap. the cheap burn out fast. sometimes you will luck up and get some good ones and sometimes you will not. when i have convergence problems i replace the board. (partstore.com) this way you eliminate changing cap, resistors and a host of other problems. the really good chips cost around $46 a piece, the board cost around $160. now since you do have them. cut the legs off close to the board and simply desolder them one at a time. then take your time and resolder the others. this has to be a skill of patience, but i know you will triumph. tell me also what was your tv doing before it went out completely. please rate my solution and thank you, you are very kind.
