The reason your television has a 3 flashing red light is just an indicator notifying you that you have a problem in the unit.

The problem is as a result of either a bad capacitor or a faulty t-com board, and that is why you still do not have picture, even with the new globe. You can open up the television after unplugging and leaving it for some time, lets say about 1 hour. Then you assess the panels for any burnt capacitors, the capacitor will look worn out or have black stuffs on the top cap or swollen. If you do not find any faulty capacitor, then it is the t-com board that is faulty.

If you are getting sound but no picture, then it is the t-com board of the television that is faulty.

Have it replaced and the television will be in good shape once again. And if it is a capacitor that is burnt, turn the panel to the other side, then melt off the burnt capacitor with a soldering iron then replace with a new one and solder it back on with lead. Make sure you are very careful in replacing components in the television in order not to cause more damage.

Take care nd good luck

Panasonic projection tv pt-53wx52c no picture red light flashing 3 times have sound

3 times red light flashing is an error code that indicates problem in convergence output section, please check and replace convergence output chips and pico fuse nearby. Chips replacement in circuit board requires soldering work and local tv repair shop will help you if you are not familiar with soldering.
Hope this will help.

Hi and welcome to FixYa, Based on your description, possibilities are: 1 of the signal bulb pair has burned out; bulbs used are smaller or of lower wattage; LED type indicator lights are used. Replace flasher with electronic version. Good luck and thank you for using FixYa.

Picture & sound shuts off

I had a similar problem with my Phillips 42 in. LCD HD TV.

Here's the problem. The Power Supply Board. I opened my TV up(warranty was up of course) and found several bad capacitors. Phillips and several other companies were sold capacitors that although were highly rated failed within 5 years because of a lack of preservatives. All sorts of electronic equipment is now being effected due to these defective capacitors.
1. Take it in and have it fixed
2. Open it up, check the board for faulty capacitors(bulged or leaking) Buy a new Power supply board and install it.
3. Remove PSB, remove faulty capacitors and replace with compatible new ones.

Hope this helps

KV27S42 problem

The 2 blinks is an indication of overcurrent. That translates into a short somwhere inside the set. since you can get sound but no picture, that suggests that the problem is in the high voltage section. The most common failure there is the Horizontal Output Transistor. This is a 3 legged part attached to a heatsink close to the flyback transformer (part with large red wire coming out the top). That part should be marked C5438 or something similar. Post the marking here and I'll give you the complete part number.

Panasonic Flashing codes:
1: ----------------- +140 v.
2: ----------------- Low DC
3: ----------------- Convergence
4: ----------------- HHS
5: ----------------- IC 4011
6: ----------------- IC 4018
3 is convergence, either one of the two convergence ICs faulty, or something else (capacitor etc.) has blown on convergence board.

Hi can you help me!!

do you fully charge your phone? i know for sure that the red blinking light that you are saying that flashes near the joystick only indicates that your phone is low in battery and need to charge. maybe you're phone is not charging properly. you can also try changing your battery as your second to the last option, of course the last is buy a new phone^^
