Question about Panasonic PT-51HX41 51" Rear Projection Television
Hey I noticed you really know what your talking about when it comes to fixing tv's! I have a problem myself, I have a pt-51hx42f and when i try to turn it on it just blinks the red power light 3 times, if I unplug it and turn it on, it seems like it is going to come on but then shuts off and gives the 3 red blinks. I know it is probably the stk392-110 and resistors because I already noticed they are burnt. I was wondering if you could help walk me through putting in the stk392-150's (went with those instead of stk392-110's).
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.
