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

2 Answers

The computer shut down and the LED blinks three times, it sounds like the Convergence IC's is this correct? But I can not find it and I open the back cover. Is this something easy to fix or do I need a repair man?

3 is short protection, 95% Chance the chips are bad.

I can tell you how to prove this and I have start to finish, step by step instructions for the repair.

    Where would you recommend to purchase the Convergence Ic's and 2.2 ohms?

    Suburban Electronics has both and an internet catalog, they are in Maryland and also sell on EBAY as seller sewsales55.

  • CondorDad Oct 06, 2010

    Thanks, I got the Convergence IC's ordered but not sure what kind of resistors, it's a 2.2 ohms resistor but when I go on ebay, there is different colors ones, does it matter?

  • SD Tech

    send them a email and ask, the resistors are easy to test they should read like a fuse, if any are white or discolored in middle they will have no reading.

    If needed I have Yahoo im for chat.

    Can you send a copy of your step by step instructions on replacing the Convergence ICs and likely the Resistors? I have a PT-53WX42F and it is blinking 3 times. My daughter was watching it and it went super bright and then nothing. howard@polackfamily.com

PT-53WX53G still shutting off-3 blinks


have you checked the 2.2 ohm 2watt resistors? If the led blinks three times the resistors will almost always have at least one that will be blown and need replacement.

Panasonic PT-47wx53 just shut off


Your convergence ICs have failed. Thats what causes the led to blink three times. The PT53WX53 convergence repair kit from www.tvrepairworld.com will usually repair that issue. The kit also contains the CD with detailed repair instructions.

My Panasonic 1080i is not turning on i press power the green light turns on but the screen stays black. then eventually the light turns red. another website instructed me to order STK392-110 some chip...


First, if the convergence chips are bad or shorted the set will shut down and the power light will blink three times in a sequence--if no three blinks I would suggest another possible problem common to this set.

Before the set shuts off do you see anything at all on the screen after a minute or two? A strange band of noise from top to bottom on the right side? The more information you can give me the better the chance I can tell you exactly what is wrong---I have fixed hundreds of these sets--

I am here to help--give me all the information you can

Panasonic PT-51HX42F turns on, no picture and led light blinks three times


Your symptom sounds like a damaged convergence IC.

This is a common failure for this particular television. The power light is blinking indicate a short in the power supply,

There are two and large IC’s that control the convergence in a big screen set. Some of the newer sets only have one. They are secured to a very large aluminum heat sink. They will have a part number stamped on them that will start with an STKXXX-XXX, like STK392-110, and they are located on the signal board (on the left as you look into the back of the set).

Along with the convergence IC’s there will also be some associated components that will need to be replaced as well. There are some resistors that are part of the convergence circuit that will be open and need to be replaced. Most likely these will appear charred in the center. If you have an Ohm Meter or a DVM, check all the resistors that are close to the IC’s and you should be looking for either ones that have opened or have changed values.
There are also two resistors on the front of the board located in the middle that are fusible link resistors, these should be checked for opens and replaced if they are found so.

If one of the convergence IC’s are found to be bad, I would replace them both, if one has gone bad the other may go soon. I usually order my parts from Andrews Electronics in California, they will have the OEM components that you will need.
Their site is http://www.andrewselectronics.com/welcome.aspx
And their phone number is a 24-Hour Order Desk: (800) 274-4666
I recommend the phone order so you can talk to the person about the different types of IC’s that are available.

I would also advise that the convergence IC’s be OEM or better, just because they are cheap does not mean that they are a good deal. I have seen the cheap IC’s fail after a short time, even though they look exactly like the OEM IC’s. I think that the bottom line is that you will get what you pay for when it comes to the parts.

You can also try http://www.tvrepairkits.com/ , I have not tried them yet, but they do carry OEM or better parts.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.
If you need further assistance please comment to this post and I will try to help you further.

PT-47WX53G wont turn on 3 blinking lights from the power area.


If the red power LED is blinking 3 times--it is most likely a shorted convergence IC---the only way you can be sure is to remove the light box--I can tell you how by email--and unsolder the two STK-392-110 ic chips----they are on two heat sinks made of aluminum next to each other; if you open the back cover and find them you will see about a dozen blue(light blue) resistors marked 2.2 ohm----if any of those are some what white in the middle(discolored) they are gone and the set will never adjust until you replace them and the two convergence IC chips---What I usually do in this case is remove the light box and unsolder both IC chips and plug it in and turn it on---if the set now comes on and stays on--I replace the IC chips and adjust the set---I have done hundreds of these sets---3 blinks is almost always a bad convergence IC--if this was helpful give me a vote---AND IF YOU NEED DIRECT ASSISTANCE contact me at:

Hitachi 51UWX20B no sound, no picture, blinking green LED


The 392-150 is a higher current device then the 110---you can use either--this is normal in the hitachi sets---I usually replace both with 150's---check the led that does not light---should indicate which voltage source is bad---if it is one of the 2 voltages for the convergence ic's(one is a positive and the other a negative voltage) then the convergence Ic's may be bad---look for any discolored resistors around the ic's---one way to tell if it is a convergence ic is to de-solder both ic's and see if the set turns on(the convergence will be out the window) but if it comes on change both and do the alignments with the Hitachi remote. By the way----the led should have a location number printed on the top of the circuit board.

Turn on the power and the green LED blinks on the front for a second, but tv does not power on

MOST OF THESE SETS HAVE A SELF DIAGNOSTIC:


UNPLUG TV AND THEN PLUG BACK IN---TURN ON---GREEN POWER LIGHT COMES ON FOR A MOMENT AND GOES OFF.

PRESS AND HOLD “device” and “menu” buttons on front of tv for at least 5 seconds and then release both together.


Watch for power light to blink in a sequence:

1 blink-then 2 blinks-------no error

2 blink-then 1 blink-------X-ray protection

2 blink-then 2 blink-------SHORT PROTECTION*******

2 blink-then 3 blink---------deflection circuit problem

2 blink-then 4 blink---------vertical circuit problem


******2, then 2 is most common---usually means one of the fuses that protect the Convergence IC or IC’s is blown---set will detect no voltage to convergence IC and shut down.


SET WILL REPEAT BLINK ERROR CODE UP TO 5 TIMES AND THEN TO GET IT TO REPEAT MORE YOU HAVE TO UNPLUG SET AND TRY TO TURN ON AGAIN.


IF IT IS 2 AND THEN 2---USUALLY

Pow lite flashes three times it tries to turn on then shuts down


LED 3 times blinks shows problem with convergence out section in TV and may requires convergence out ICs replacement.
If you are familiar with TV repair and can solder parts on PCB then let me know to provide you more technical info.
Thanks.

TV turned off and now the power light blinks three times


Very common problem. 3 blinks means the convergence circuit has failed . Heres a link to the repair kit for your model which contains both convergence IC and the feed resistors and the kit has step by step instructions with pictures so you can easially do the repair yourself.

yes there can be ,check the 145 volt . The problem could also be the convergence ic,s These cannot be check other than replacement. The stk392-110 are a problem with a lot of big screens
