Question about Panasonic PT-53WX52 53" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Pt-53wx52 WELL LOOKS LIKE I AM HAVING THE SAME PROBLEM. BUT THE ONLY DIFFERENCE IS THAT MINE JUST TURNED OFF AND WILL ONLY TURN BACK ON FOR A SECOND IF I UNPLUG IT. THEN IT SHUTS BACK OFF RIGHT AWAY. CAN'T GET IT TO TURN ON LONG ENOUGH TO SEE MUCH ON THE SCREEN. THE POWER BUTTON IS BLINKING 3 TIMES. CALLED SEVERAL PLACES AND THEY WON'T GIVE ANY ADVICE JUST WANT ME TO BRING IT IN. GO FIGURE! LOL ANY INFO WOULD BE GREAT!

You need to repalce both convergence ICs. A shop will be about 400.00 for the repair. however I will psot a link where you can order the repacement ICs and recieve step by step installation instructions with pictures . They also give free online instant messaging tech support while youre installing the parts. The ICs cost about 20.00 each and the support is free as are the instructions. Your model takes STK392-110 they are located on the A board which is the board on the left attached to a large heatsink. you need to replace both of them. Let me know if you need more info . I am one of thier support techs. Heres the link where to get the ICs.

Cracked bulb or lamp?


There are bad solder connections on the Convergence Amp IC's. When you moved it , the connections that were loose are now disconnected. Resolder the pins on these IC's and you should be ready to watch TV again.

If the front power light is blinking three times then your TV has a problem with the convergence. You can get the correct replacement parts and full step by step photo instructions from www.TvRepairKits.com

Your TV most likely has a Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem

  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together convergence repair kits for most models.

The kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, thermal paste, etc. Everything you will need to do the repair yourself.

The PT-53WX52


This looks like a problemcausing the shutdown circuit to trigger. The shutdown circuit prevents the TV from being further damaged by an overcurrent or overvoltage event. The overcurent event is caused by a component being over driven and thus it decreases in resistive value causing an increase in current, The over voltage event is caused by a component increasing in its resistive value either due to an open circuit or decrease in the component's conductive area. In any event the shutdown circuits senses these eventes and shuts the TV down to prevent futher damage.

I would suggest taking the set to your local TV repair shop.

I hope this helps,

You have defective convergence amps. At least one. I would also look for any burnt or open resistors.
