5 blinks is error code for short on 140 volt line inside the set; it usually means the Horz output transistor is shorted. If you have a ohm meter (used for checking fuses etc) there is a simple test to see if this is the problem.

Also associated with this is a bad capacitor near it (Location for the Transistor is C509 and the transistor should be location Q551)

Location numbers are printed on top of board near part; both parts are on (as seen from back) far right board near the large black part with big red wire coming out of the top.

Transistor is just to the left of it and cap forward about 3 inches.

What lamp part number goes into a Panasonic PT-47wx42f rear proj tv


the set does not use lamp--it has 3 picture tubes that rarely fail.

If set does not work does power light come on and blink a specific number of blinks? 3 blinks or 5 blinks repeated are most common ones.

There is an energy save setting on your controls. Turn that off if you don't want tv to keep turning off while you are changing inputs. Hope this helps.

Panasonic PT-51HX43G no power, red light flashes


I have a Panasonic PT53TW53G projection tv that had the same problem for power .A terrific person gave us wonderful advice and it fixed our tv! We were told to replace the IC conversion amplifiers. On our model they are STK392-110 (your's may be different). We ordered the parts from www.electronix.com and they were only $12. for the two parts. We also had to purchase a soldering iron and de-soldering vac for removal/replacement of parts. Good Luck!
