Question about Panasonic Televison & Video

2 Answers

Panasonic PT-53wx53g: I'm getting a Convergence Code (3 blinks). I've already replaced the IC's and 2.2 resistors. The TV comes on for a second or two then shuts off and blinks 3 times. Before I replaced the IC's and Resistors you could turn it on and it would stay on if you were playing a Divx movie or Netflix. But if it was anything else it would stay on for a couple of minutes then shut off and give the Convergence code.

    Where are they located?

  • Charles Duncan Dec 31, 2010

    I replaced two .27K J 1W resistors and the TV comes on now, but It is still doing the same thing that it was doing before. I can turn it on and if it is cable, xbox or internet, it will stay on for a few minutes then shut off and give the Convergence code error (3 blinks). If it's a DivX movie (AVI) or a movie on Netflix it will work fine. Where are the electrolytic caps?

  • Charles Duncan Jan 03, 2011

    I found it was a wiring issue. Now the TV is back to the way it was before I replaced the IC's and IC 2.2 Resistors. If I'm watching movies on my laptop, whether it's Netflix or Windows Media Player, it will stay on. But if I switch it to the Xbox or cable TV it will cut off and give me the 3 blink Convergence error. Any ideas?

    Do you know where the caps are for this model? I can send you the manual. I found it was a wiring issue. Now the TV is back to the way it was before I replaced the IC's and IC 2.2 Resistors. If I'm watching movies on my laptop, whether it's Netflix or Windows Media Player, it will stay on. But if I switch it to the Xbox or cable TV it will cut off and give me the 3 blink Convergence error. Any ideas?

    Yes. I have reconverged it. I found it was a wiring issue. Now the TV is back to the way it was before I replaced the IC's and IC 2.2 Resistors. If I'm watching movies on my laptop, whether it's Netflix or Windows Media Player, it will stay on. But if I switch it to the Xbox or cable TV it will cut off and give me the 3 blink Convergence error. Any ideas?

Go back and recheck the solder on ICs and make sure they are not connecting to another circuit.

    Can you Enter the Service Menu for Technician , Or Do you know how to Enter Service menu to realine Convergence?

    That is puzzeling , Do you have a Service Manual ? ,Something is still not right in the convergence circuit, it maybe problem in power supply/deflection board causing weird
    convergence, Changing Signal IF seems to affect it, Signal Board .

    Did you ADD/ Save the adjustments you made before you exit the Service Menu?

You need to replace the electrolytic caps on the convergence too.

    You can replace all the electrolytic caps for less then $25.00, if you do it yourself, or take the power supply to a shop and them change the caps.

My tv will come on for 5 seconds then shut off and a red light will blink 3 times over and over whats wrong with it?


Your convergence circuit has shut the set down, thats what the 2 blink error code means. You will need to install a convergence repair kit for your model that has the two ICs and associated resistors. You can get that repair kit with instructions from www.tvrepairworld.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.

Tv still turning off blinking three times after hori ic replaced


Three blinks is short protection.

97% of the time it means one or more of the 2.2 ohm blue resistors around the two convergence IC's is OPEN.

There should be 8 or 10 of them: light blue in color and will have 2.2 printed on them ------look for any that are slightly discolored or white in the middle.

What happens here is if one opens====one of the two convergence chips got it----they can be tested in place like testing a fuse===no reading across any of them and it is gone-----set detects no voltage reaching the chips(Usually STK-392-110---black in color and on metal heat sinks with fins side by side.)

DO NOT JUST REPLACE THE RESISTOR IF YOU FIND ONE BAD=ONE OF THE CHIPS GOT IT.

I have start to finish, step by step instructions showing what is needed and the best way to replace the chips etc.

FIRST: LOOK TO SEE IF any OF THE RESISTORS ARE GONE. (BAD)

If you want the instructions let me know and I will post them here for you.

Regards, SD TECH


FYI= Whoever told you to replace the output transistor does clearly not know these sets very well as it will produce a 5 blink error code.

The 3 blink error code is indicating that the Convergence ICs have failed. You can get the repair kit for your model which contains both convergence IC and the six feed resistors and it also has step by step instructions with pictures that show how to do the repair. Heres a link to the repair kit for your model.

I need to identify the parameters (rating) of a resistor for a Panasonic PT53WX53G projector big screen tv. It got hot so I can not see the color codes on it. This resistor glows red when TV is turned...


The resistor you see is a 2.2 ohm 2 watt resistor and is part of the convergence circuitry. I would replace R7011. 7012, 7013, 7014, 7015 & 7016 (all the same value) and the 2 STK392-110 Convergence ICs. This should fix your problem. You can find kits on-line for around $45 with the IC's and resistors together.

Failed resistor


those are the convergence feed resistors. # blinks on a panasonic means convergence IC failure. You will need to replace the two stk392-110 convergence ICs and the six resistors. You can get replacement ICs and resistors at the following link.

Panasonic PT-53WX53G power problems


Just click below for convergence repair kit;

http://servicemanuals.vstore.ca/

The 3 blinks symptom is for busted convergence IC,you must replaced this IC in order that will works better again.STK 392-150ICs and it's associated resistor,this resistor automatically chagne value,can caused truoble even though you change the ICs.If you bring this to a service center they cost you $600 to $700,but if you buy the repair kit you can save more,don't wory it is very easy because there is intallation guide including in the repair kit. Feel free to ask whatever the result... click the link for sample picture guide step by step installation;

Yes you can get replacement IC STK392-110 convergence ICs at the following link and they provide free instalation instructions with pictures. The Ics are located on the board on the left side attached to a large heatsink. You will need to replace both ICs heres the link.
