YES, IT is short protection and 98% chance one of the resistors that protect the convergence circuit is bad.

Good news here:Set is fixable and total parts cost will be under 25 dollars (seller I know on Ebay).

If you want to confirm this: with set unplugged, remove back cover and locate the two heat sinks with fins that have two of the STK-392-110 convergence chips---look at all the light blue resistors in front of them---I bet you find one white in the middle--gone.

Set detects no voltage and a short and shuts down--3 blinks code.

I have start to finish, step by step instructions for this repair that tell everything you will need and how to do the repair--the instructions are based on my own experience doing this repair in these sets hundreds of times.

If photos and info here help and you want the step by step (I can not give my email here.....)rate this solution as very helpful as I am doing this here for free.

My tv will not come on. The power light blinks 3 - cd48042.jpg Chips look like this but metal in your set will be silver.

protect resistors in front will be light blue in color and most will be marked 2.2 which means 2.2 ohms is value.

    Have the same problem found the resistor that is bad. How do you fix that? Do you just remove the bad one and solder a new one on? Maybe dumb question I'm new to this.

    I'm currently experiencing the same...set shuts down right after turning on with red LED blinking 3x.
    looked inside and found blown resister exactly as SD TECH suggested and will be looking to fix.
    Thanks SD TECH...

    I'm sure that this is the problem with my set, but all of the resistors are white ( I suppose they originally could have been a very pale blue, but we've had the set for 7 years). There is one resistor at the end, near the front of the set, that is a very light brown with a very white stripe around the center. if one of these resistors is bad, it's this one. Can anyone confirm this and or provide replacement instructions?

Tv light standby red just keeps blinking after replacing bulb


Hi,
If red light was not blinking before lamp replacement and after that it start blinking 3 times then pause for three seconds and again blink, check lamp cover that has not been fixed on tv or it is not fixed/ seated correctly there.
Lamp cover is first thing that you removed from tv to replace lamp.
Hope these info will help. If red light is blinking other than 3 times, let me know how many times it is blinking along with tv model number written at rear to provide you helpful info.
Thanks.

Hi,
If red light blinks 3 times when tv refuse to power up then check lamp cover that was removed to replace lamp, make sure lamp cover is fixed in its position securely and screw is tight.
Let me know how many times red light is blinking after three second long pause IF it is not blinking 3 times.

When the tv plugged up the power led blinks 3 times. When the power button is pressed the tv comes on for three seconds and turns back off. What could be the problem? Could this be a convergence problem?


Do the self check when power light goes out:

ON front of set (not remote) press and hold both the Menu and Input (Device) buttons at same time for 5 seconds or longer and release both buttons.

Power light will blink a two digit error code like 2 blinks, 2 blinks, a pause and repeat it several times.

Let me know code.

When i go to turn on the tv the red power light turns on and then starts flashing, with an all blank tv screen. I cant get anything but a black screen. The light will flash for a lil while, then the tv...


BLINKING RED LIGHT IS ERROR CODE.

1. Unplug set for a few minutes.

2. Plug back in and turn on.

3. When red power light starts blinking--COUNT THE BLINKS.

4. THREE BLINKS, pause, THREE BLINKS (ETC) IS SHORT PROTECTION AND A DO IT YOURSELF repair for some people. I have complete instructions for this repair.

5. 5 blinks, pause and 5 blinks etc is short on 140 volt line and while not as easy as 3 blink error code it points to places to look at.


If this told you something you did not know, rate this solution as very helpful as I do this here for free.

Post a comment here when you know what error code is and I will help.

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?
