Panasonic Projection HDTV

I have a panasonic 47" HDTV model PT-47WX53. When I try to turn it on it does not go on and the LED diagnostic light on the front panel blinks three times. The service manual I have says that indicates a problem in the convergence circuit. Can you offer any professonal advice as to how to fix this problem? Thank you, Johnny

    Benimur and Terryfic,

    I really appreciate your guidance. I have removed the circuit board,purchased a new soldering iron(for printed circuits) and now I realize I need to desolder the old joints.I checked for the hitachi kit you recommended online and found it at www.partstore.com I am now purchasing a desoldering pump. With a steady hand and patience I should be able to complete this repair. I will keep you posted.

I have the same tv and had the sme problem i bought the convergences and my husband (trying to save money) tried to do it himself. He did an awful job and nothing happened. Someone told him he will have to buy a new board. What kind of board? And do u know where we can buy one?
Thanks

Replace both convergence IC's with up-grade,durable STK394-160E.....use Hitachi kit # X480293 ( has two IC's with some
resistors for Hitachi / Philips chassis ) The price is lower if you buy the kit,rather than two individual IC's.....................T.

Hi odd johnny,

My sincerest apologies. My area of experience with Panasonic models are rather limited to diagnosis and power supplies. May I recommend instead hdtv_guru, techman or terryfic who I consider more knowledgeable and experienced on convergence circuits.

Nonetheless, I appreciate you bringing your concern to my attention and wish I could do more.

I have taken the liberty of pre-informing these gentlemen of your concern.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Your convergence ICs have failed. Thats what causes the led to blink three times. The PT53WX53 convergence repair kit from www.tvrepairworld.com will usually repair that issue. The kit also contains the CD with detailed repair instructions.

Panasonic PT-47WX53, Would replacing the convergence ICs STK392-110 incorrectly make it so that the tv would not turn on at all and not give a blink code?


If the pins were bridged with solder it could blow the main fuse. I would check the fuse since a panasonic will always light the led if the fuse inst blown, another possibility would be the wires not seated properly especially the bridge connectors bewteen the boards.

replace the DG board which is the small board which plugs into the A Board ( on the left side looking in rear of the set) The DG is the board which lays flat on top of the A board. You can get the A board and the DG board combined at www.tvrepairworld.com They may sell it seperately if you inquire.
