PT-53WX42 Went Out

I am trying to weed through these solutions. Mine is doing the same thing, it turns on stays black for 3 seconds or so and it turns off and the red light flasshes in 3 flash intervals. I have read everything from IC Convergance chips to power board to flyback transmitter. Which one is it? I was about to trash the TV but i dont wanna do that if it can be fixed.

Can someone help Panasonic tv will not turn on power light 3 blinks and a pause (pt-53wx42-53


Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. 3 blinks issue means failed convergence (STK) ICs which needs to be replaced. To do this yourself you should require some basic knowledge about soldering-re-soldering components. To start with you’ll have to open the back of the unit and then replace the ICs (STK ICs) which are located behind the black heat sink and also check the resistors as if they are short the ICs might blow again after sometime. There are repair kits available which includes repair instructions with the parts, if you want to do it yourself, you can buy and repair it yourself. Please do rate the solution if the issue is resolved or post a comment for further assistance.


Thanks

Panasonic pt-53wX42, power wont stay on. Turn on, no picture then it will turn off by itself after 5 seconds. The red power button will flash on and off until I unplug unit and start the whole process...


I'm no expert, but I'd start by taking a "VERY GOOD LOOK" w/magnifing glass if possible , @ UR Wall Outlet Power Cord. Change to different wall outlet. Ur Power Cord "should" just pull right out of the back of your TV. If nothing in those places, then take off back panel (or part where power cord plugs into TV & AGAIN inspect area around where power cord attached for, yeah, that's right, the dreaded black area around plug-in area. Maybe it's just a bent prong. Any other funny things going on that U didn't mention here? Good Luck Leonard aka quikstudy@cox.net

Panasonic PT-53WX42 - When I turn the TV on, the red light comes on but, no sound or picture.


Does the light blink? If it is blinking a 3 code, the IC's need to be replaced. Those three lamps as you called them are not lamps, they are the three picture tubes.

Panasonic PT-53WX42F Picture Problem. Color Distortion.


Your TV most likely has a Convergence Chip Failure ( common problem )

Here are some of the most common symptoms and example photos of a convergence problem


  • Screen looks 3D
  • Colors don't line up
  • One or more colors can't be adjusted when using the convergence menu.
  • Screen is bowed or warped.

You need to replace the convergence chips and convergence resistors. Check the site www.TvRepairKits.com. They have put together convergence repair kits for most models.

The kits include a photo instruction guide, original OEM Sanyo STK chips, convergence resistors, pico fuses, thermal paste, etc. Everything you will need to do the repair yourself.

Power on for 5 seconds; can hear the sound; then power off; power light flashes


A 440.00 bill is not unusual for your repair,however, I would ask

some questions-- Why 40. for tax?? On what parts?? What are

the part numbers??  How much for a written estimate?? What

is the warranty?? Otherwise,pursue your solution on FIXYA.
