I have a panasonic PT-53x54J that will not turn on,the red light keeps blinking 6 times

On a panasonic if its a "3" blink pattern its usualy a sign that the convergnce hsa failed. When this happens the tV will commonly shut down. You will need to call in a repair shp or get the parts from sites like or just google convergence repair kit.

Panasonic PT-53X54J Rear Projection TV. Suddenly shut off just before went black with a color line down the middle. When turned back on makes clicking noise and can't power on for about 3 minutes then cuts...

That is the classical sound of a Switchmode power supply, detecting an "Over current" situation and shutting down, for "Safety" reasons, like fire explosion etc. I get these in the shop frequently, (actually they seldom get to the shop, more, we go to them, as they are so BIG) This is a common occurrence. But can have many, many causes, the Power Supply shutting down, is a "Symptom", of the actual "Cause". Unfortunately, as related there are many areas that can cause this to happen. It literally can be in any section, or part of the circuit. really, the only way to effect a fix, is to first get a Service Manual. It is well worth the price it costs to get one. Simply Google the name off your TV, and add the words "service manual" after, Panasonic PT-53X54 service manual The manual gives service algorithms, to work through, to isolate the problem. It is still quite a challenge in any event. Rear projection TV's do have what seems to be a higher failure rate than the "Normal" TV's. Also they seem to be more expensive to repair. If you decide to get a repair ensure you get a firm "Quote" before proceeding. No "Quote" no job. If you choose to do it yourself.. good luck

Tv is showing double vision with red being the second image

This is due to convergence out chips failure, replace convergence out ICs in TV to get converge picture.
If you are handy with electronics stuff repair and want to repair TV by yourself (soldering work is required) then let me know exact model number written at back of TV to provide you more technical info OR ask local tech to fix it.

part number for the lamp unit is:
LFS4000PA1EB It has a suggested list price of 605 dollars and is not customer replaceable----it also requires TECH approval from Panasonic to order----this is one of the 2007 models with a led type lamp--have to dismantle set to replace--no shops here will do it in the home---lamp wholesales for under 300 but has substantial core charge---they rebuild all these.

I hope this helps you---You can also Google the model number and I think you will find some used ones but no new ones.

HI, The Pc Board that is located in your set, has become unstable. there are several IC's that control convergence and input streams as well. the damaged board should be replaced asap. it is possible for a service tech to be directed to your home but, most will require you to transport your set to the actual repair shop. i will list the part Number below.

Panasonic Part Number: TNPH0370ADS(PC BOARD) $347.95

most shops I know are crooked and make up stuff to squeez the most outta ya usually about half what the set costs. so are car mechanics. best thing to do is ask around for trusted repair shop .....word of mouth rules. any tech with half a brain can come to your house point to the parts within 1 minute...and should just charge a house call. good luck

Has anyone had problems with connecting an 'HDMI to HDMI + SPDIF + RCA L / R Audio Extractor Converter (HDMI input,HDMI+ Audio output)' to a Panasonic PT-53TW53? I have a TiVo Premiere hooked up to my Panasonic PT-53TW53. I use the HDMI out, and RCA R+L outputs on the TiVo, and hook up to the digital in connections on the TV. The conversion of the HDMI out is via an HDMI to DVI cable. This has worked perfectly for years, but recently I wanted to disconnect the TiVo and replace with my Roku or Amazon Fire TV. Both have a single HDMI output. So I purchased an AGPtek HDMI to HDMI + SPDIF + RCA L / R Audio Extractor Converter (HDMI input, HDMI+ Audio output) box, hooking up the HDMI output from the Roku or Fire TV to the input on the extractor/converter, and simply disconnecting the HDMI to DVI and RCA R+L outputs from the TiVo, and plugging them into the outputs on the converter/extractor. The converter/extractor has a 3 position switch: PASS, 2CH audio, or 5.1CH (via and SPDIF or Toslink cable). I have had 2 of these converter/extractors, and with both the Roku and Fire TV I got the same results with both converter/extractors: With the switch on 2CH, which is where I understand I should get HDMI video and 2CH RCA audio, all I get is the RCA audio. No video. If I switch to PASS I get video with no audio. Of course on the 5.1 setting I get nothing, since the TV does not support SPDIF. Yet I see reviews all over Amazon indicating folks are using this converter/extractor for this very purpose, and it is working fine. I can't possibly imagine that it is some sort of incompatibility issue with the TV, since the TiVo has worked (and continues to) fine for years. Any ideas?
