Question about Panasonic PT-53TW53 53" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television
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.
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.
