Question about Panasonic PT-47WX53 47" Rear Projection HDTV
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.
