3 blinks means convergence. The Ics cost about 10.00 each you will need to replace both of them. Also check the resistors that power the ics. They are located right next to the ics easy to spot theres about 7 of them all identical with no color bands on them like normal resistors have.

We have a Panasonic HDTV VIVA 1080i that was working fine when we went to bed and the next morning when we turned it on, it came on then shut off with the red light blinking 3 times, pause, blinking 3...


NO, three blinks on most of the sets means short protection.

If model is similar to one listed here it means short in convergence circuit. What happens is one of the two convergence output chips goes bad and takes out a resistor or two around it; set senses no voltage to chips and shuts down with 3 blink error code.

This can be a do it your self repair if you are handy and soldering is involved, typical parts cost at a site I use is well under 25 dollars.

SD TECH---let me know if you have questions.

TV comes on for 3-4 seconds and then turns off. The power light then blinks 3 times and then pauses, then 3 more blinks ans pauses.


3 blinks is short protection and 98% chance one of the resistors in the convergence circuit is gone.

I can tell you what to look for and if confirmed how to fix set. If the usual problem total parts cost on EBAY will be well under 25 dollars.

If one of the resistors is bad, I have step by step start to finish instructions I can provide for this repair, for most it is a do it yourself job.

If you have questions let me know.

I just replaced the bulb in my sony grand wega kf50we610 yesterday. today my tv turns on for less than a minute and shuts down. not sure how many lights blink? please help what can I do?


Look for the blink code when it shuts down--it will point you in the direction of what the problem is--for example if it blinks a sequence of 3 blinks and a pause and 3 blinks etc---it is an easy repair you can do and the parts cost is under 20 dollars--what is wrong will be indicated in a general way by the blink code--it is a error code.

Mitsubishi WS55859 turns on for 3 sec. then turns off


Ic's went out again. Did you check all the bias resistors? Must always look the board over for cold solder joints also.

My tv went out and I think I may have blown a fuse or something else went out. When I press the power button the green light turns on for a couple seconds and then just goes out. what do you think the...


NEXT TIME IT SHUTS DOWN: when green light goes out on THE FRONT OF THE SET: press and hold BOTH the menu and input buttons at the same time for at least 5 seconds and then release both.

This is the self check this model has---power light should blink a two digit code---for example--two blinks, a pause and two blinks and the set will repeat the error code about 10 times.

1 blinks and then 2 blinks is NO ERROR DETECTED
2 blinks and then 2 blinks is short protect

ETC.....Let me know if you get an error code and I will tell you what the problem is---hope you find 2,2 that is the most common and the most easy to repair.

Okay check the self diagnosis feature, Hold the input and menu buttons in at the same time on the set, hold for 5 seconds see if the set blinks 1-2 blinks pauses then blinks 1-4 blinks. If so let me know the number of blinks. If not check the following items in the power supply for being open or shorted.
R9A02 R9A22 R9A23
Check Q9A51 Q9A22 also its diodes D9A31 and D9A32
Also check the 3 fues F9Doo, F9A01 and F9A06
Also check the solder on T9A20 and the flyback . Let me know what you find.

Toshiba 55hx70 projection tv problem


How many times does the light blink? It should blink a number of times, pause then blink the same amount then pause. Try to count the blinks then let me know. Also how long does it run before shutting down if any?
