Your model will not work with STK392-115 in fact I have never heard of those ICs.

    ok that IC will work in your model the panasonics are famous for blowing the convergence feed resistors when the Ics go out. They are six 2.2 ohm 2 watt metal film resistors. You can get replacement resistors at the following link.

3 blinks is the error code for the convergence ICs. You need to replace both STK392-110 convergence ICs. You can get replacement ICs at the following link and they provide installation instructions with pictures.

CONVERCENCE PROBLEMS


did you replace the convergence resistors with the ICs? Often the resistors will need to be replaced also when new ICs are installed. 3 blinks means convergence Failure so its either the solder connections on the ICs or the resistors need replacement. If you need more assistance please let me know.

No sound and the power light is blinking


I had similar issue with power light blinking 3 times and no audio/video.

The problem was a burnt resistor and gone convergence ICs. I replaced both ICs (safer bet unless you know exactly which IC covers what guns in your specific TV) and the burnt resistor by myself and the TV looks good as new.

Tv repair


My Tv was doing the same thing, and I had to unplug the set in order to get rid of the blinking light. And what i did was to turn the power on and as soon as i saw the picture i turned it off, I did this 5 times and on the 6th time I let it power and tv stayed on, however something did happend to my set, i found that my convergence was wacky. Tried to center convergence but i could not center the blue. Turns out, i think the problem is with my Convergence ICs that went bad. I can still watch tv but the Image has blue color shadows and the picture slightly bows inwards from top and bottom. To sum this up, i will need to replace 2 ICs, IC C5AA00000203, and this should fix my problem. I will do this repair myself, each part is about $41..

Let me know what happened to your problem.
Thanks
Tony

Has anyone had problems with connecting an 'HDMI to HDMI + SPDIF + RCA L / R Audio Extractor Converter (HDMI input,HDMI+ Audio output)' to a Panasonic PT-53TW53? I have a TiVo Premiere hooked up to my Panasonic PT-53TW53. I use the HDMI out, and RCA R+L outputs on the TiVo, and hook up to the digital in connections on the TV. The conversion of the HDMI out is via an HDMI to DVI cable. This has worked perfectly for years, but recently I wanted to disconnect the TiVo and replace with my Roku or Amazon Fire TV. Both have a single HDMI output. So I purchased an AGPtek HDMI to HDMI + SPDIF + RCA L / R Audio Extractor Converter (HDMI input, HDMI+ Audio output) box, hooking up the HDMI output from the Roku or Fire TV to the input on the extractor/converter, and simply disconnecting the HDMI to DVI and RCA R+L outputs from the TiVo, and plugging them into the outputs on the converter/extractor. The converter/extractor has a 3 position switch: PASS, 2CH audio, or 5.1CH (via and SPDIF or Toslink cable). I have had 2 of these converter/extractors, and with both the Roku and Fire TV I got the same results with both converter/extractors: With the switch on 2CH, which is where I understand I should get HDMI video and 2CH RCA audio, all I get is the RCA audio. No video. If I switch to PASS I get video with no audio. Of course on the 5.1 setting I get nothing, since the TV does not support SPDIF. Yet I see reviews all over Amazon indicating folks are using this converter/extractor for this very purpose, and it is working fine. I can't possibly imagine that it is some sort of incompatibility issue with the TV, since the TiVo has worked (and continues to) fine for years. Any ideas?
