Tv problem help


With the plug from the t.V. unplugged from the wall outlet, remove the tv cover. Follow the power cord to the power supply's printed circuit board. Look to see if there are any damaged, bulging or burnt out (exploded) capacitors. If there are, that's the source of the problem.

Be fore warned, even though the power cord to the tv has been disconnected from the wall outlet, good capacitors still hold (store) hi-voltages that can shock & even kill you; so don't touch them unless you know how to properly discharge a capacitor. Don't underestimate the power that these components store even though they are very small.

Panasonic pt53wx53 led blinks once


unplug the set---where smoke something has burned.

I would with back off have a look---look at high voltage transformer and that area of board and pay special attention to C509 (brown cap in front of high voltage transformer about 2 inches---it will be marked with that C509 on board.

If it is cracked or burnt it is bad---these fail a lot.

If the set needs to be worked on it has a lightbox---about 8 bolts removed and entire guts or chassis comes out in one piece--can be powered up out of the cabinet.

Let me know if need more information.

My tv made a popping sound, the screen went blank


Any set is repairable. It is the question of the cost and the availability of replacement parts.
It sounds like a component overheated and blew. Most likely there will be collateral damage where other components will also be damaged.
The failure could be in the power supply, or in any of the main drive circuits in the set.
You will have to call for a service estimate. In considering the age of this set, my preference would be to go out and get a descent LCD or Plasma set. The picture quality and performance of these new sets are far superior to the one you have!

My tv shut down and wont turn on


If you are certain you have power at the outlet, try plugging a lamp into the outlet and see if it lights up, then you may have burned out power supply

Pop and burning smell now no picture


If you're NOT still under warrantee you should at least open the TV and look for a blown fuse near where the power cable enters the set. A lot of times you can buy replacement fuses at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace. Check the fuse. If it is blown, it will be obvious and make sure that the set is unplugged before replacing it. If it blows again, or if it is not blown, your problem is probably in the 'X' volt regulator and you will need professional help with the repairs. You can also check the board where the components are mounted and resoled any that look bad. Brief power outages may cause the TV to turn off on its own. If you are using a surge protector, try connecting the set directly to the wall outlet. In your case it could caused by a blown fuse, a leaky diodes or a bad solder joint at the horizontal drive transformer. All can be replaced at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace If this does not correct the problem, you may need to have your TV serviced. good luck!
