Question about Panasonic PT-53X54 53" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

PT-53X54J Power Switch Flashing Red and more...

My Panasonic PT-53X54J just started flashing red on the power light when it was plugged in. When you actually hit the power button you could see light from inside the set. I removed the cover so that I could see exactly what was happening when the power switch was turned on.
In the near right hand corner of the cirrcuit board on the right there is a black rectangular device that is fastened to the side of a steel L-shaped divider. It appears to be glued to the side of the steel, plus there is bracket attached to the black rectangular device held by a screw on the top. The black rectangular device appears to have 3 leads soldered into the board.
Anyway, when the TV is plugged in nothing happens to this device, but when the power switch is pushed this device has what appears to be blue flame that shoots out the bottom and side of the black rectangular device.

My questions are: What is the device and can I replace it myself with a soldering iron? Will that solve the problem or is something else causing this to flame out?

Thank you for any help you can provide.
Thank you,
Dave

Should I replace my lamp for my Panasonic 1080i htd t.v. pt-50LC14


Replacing a lamp won't work. There is not even one lamp in your TV. I'm afraid the lightening has done more damage than can be repaired. Even when some tech manages to repair te error, the TV can have the next error in days or weeks.
Try reading something about ESD. Electro Static Discharge and what it does to electronics. Electrostatic discharge

The power light is just blinking red on my panasonic 1080i hdtv. cant even switch it off using the power button. picture and sound come on for about a second when the tv is switched on after power cord...


The power light keeps flashing and the tv won't turn on. If you unplug for a minute and hit the power button it sound like it is coming on then it shuts off and the red power light flashes slowly. The TV is a Panisonic 1080i HDTV, about 6-7 years old.

TV won't turn on when push power button red light flashes


You can unplug the tv for 1 minute and then plug it back in since you have a red light you know it is getting power, also don't plug it into a surge protector when trying this. If the tv still has a flashing red light a service center will need to repair the tv, replacing more than likely the power supply or small signal board.

The Power Light is Red


yeah, should stay red when unit is turned off, indicating there's power but it's doing nothing.

Per user manual:
Solid red - power off (standby mode)
blinking red - power off (now cooling)
blinking green - power on (preparing to light lamp)
solid green - power on

Lamp problem or else?


You need to get the ballast repair kit #LSUC0002 and replace the parts to your ballast.

I have the exact same TV, did the above this past weekend, and the TV works like new.

You need to know how to solder though. It's not that hard.
