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

2 Answers

Panasonic PT53TW53 My set has three blinks..........after 3+ years of excellent performance, it recently shut down by itself...but after being unplugged, it powers up but then three seconds later shuts itself off and there are three blinks....I live in the US Virgin Islands and professional repair is 95% out of the question..I am very familiar with electronic parts, soldering etc....any help for self-repair will be greatly appreciated....you seem to be the man with the knowledge and patience to do this over the internet thanks, drew@surfvi.com I'm having the same problem. Power light is flashing and the TV turns on for a brief moment after it has been plugged back in. My TV is four years old and I have not had any problem with it.

Hi,

I've found a solution which has been given by Slinteriors who is one of the experts at fixya.

3 blinks on the led means shutdown due to the convergence circuits. Its an easy repair you need to replace both convergence amp ICs thier numbers are STK392-110 I will post a link where you can order replacements and they provide free installation instructions as well as free on line tech support while you do your repair by way of instant messaging. I am one of thier repair techs that does the online support. just go to this link i am posting and purchase two STK392-110 Convergence ICs they ship free anywhere in the world. If you need other items such as solder irons and what not just leave a request by clicking the contact link in the lower left collum as they sell all those items they just dont list them all, and they will respond fast telling you what they have.

    Panasonic with same problem. 3 blinks after power on for a
    few seconds, no picture or sound.(found from one of our coexperts)

    Solution: replaced two convergence
    ICs (STK392-XXX) located on the large green printed circuit board. ICs
    are very large and screwed into two large heat sinks and soldered to
    board. Cost is approximately $6 each. Easy to replace if careful. May
    be able to access solder joints on bottom of board by removing screen
    on bottom of cabinet or simply remove 4 screws that anchor plastic
    holder to cabinet and tilt up. I did not disconnect any inter-board
    connections. Remove heat sink screws. Desolder using suction bulb or
    solder ******. Works great. Finish off with solderwick braid if
    necessary to clear holes. 40 watt iron is enough do not apply too much
    heat to damage board lands. Remove IC. Clean heat sink by scraping away
    white heat sync compound. Apply generous amount of heat sync compound
    to new IC and coat evenly. Align and insert new IC holes, resolder with
    thin resin core solder being careful not bridge lands. Refasten to heat
    sink. Clean board and inspect for good joints and no bridging. Refasten
    plastic board holder. Carefully clean projection lenses while back is
    off tv. Power up and it should be fixed. Parts are obtainable on-line.
    Solder tools and board cleaner are available at Radio Shack or on-line
    also. I spent $20 on parts and supplies. This is not hard just a bit
    tedious. You can do it.

NO, three blinks on most of the sets means short protection.

If model is similar to one listed here it means short in convergence circuit. What happens is one of the two convergence output chips goes bad and takes out a resistor or two around it; set senses no voltage to chips and shuts down with 3 blink error code.

This can be a do it your self repair if you are handy and soldering is involved, typical parts cost at a site I use is well under 25 dollars.

Time to get a new TV. I have similar problem. In my case, the set turns off, LED blinking green for about a minute or 2, then the set will turn on by itself. Something the LED started to blink yellow after blinking green and then shuts off. I can turn it back on. This happens 3 or 4 times in an hour. After that, the TV stays on for as many hours as I want until I shut it off.
And then the problem repeats everytime I turn it on from a cold start.
I have my eyes on the 50 inch Plasma from Panasonic. Bestbuy has one for 999.99.
