    if it was a fuse would it keep doing the same thing. sound like it is starting up then stop. and the red light flash. it is probably 2 years old

  • jmmudge Aug 11, 2008

    do i have to take off the back panel to get to the fuse

  • jmmudge Aug 13, 2008

    fuse i found inside was good it was by the power cord

  • jmmudge Aug 13, 2008

    anyone else have any ideas

  • jmmudge Aug 13, 2008

    i can unplug it and plug it back in and it does the same thing the blue and red bulbs light up not the green then shuts off

  • jmmudge Aug 13, 2008

    i just saw the comment about the ICs, i don't know much about the electronics in the tv, is this going to be like a plug and play repair or is there some soldering that needs to be done, could i ruin the tv more, thanks for the help

  • jmmudge Aug 13, 2008

Hi,

Just to make sure, try to plug-in the power cord of your tv directly from the walljack or to any ather power outlet. It might be an issue with the power shortage, or the outlet that you are using to plug-in the power cable/cord doesnt have enough electricity or defective.


thank you so muc.

Probably the backlight is out. However, I do not recommend anyone unfamiliar with electronics messing around in a television, projection type or otherwise. Capacitors inside a TV can store 10's of thousands of volts, loooooong after the set is unplugged. It can be VERY dangerous.

Thats the error code for the convergence ICs needing replacement. You can get both replacement ICs STK392-110 and the six 2.2 ohm 2 watt resistors for R7011, R7012, R7013, R7014, R7015 and R7016. There is akit which includes everything for under 47.00 to repair your kit it is at the following link called panasonic convergence repair kit #1 which has the resistors and ICs and comes with instalation instructions. Heres the link.

    Ther is definately soldering involved. I would suggest a tech do it if youre not comfortable soldering, But 3 blinks means the convergence ICs have shorted definately

Why will my Panasonic 52 inch rear projection will not turn on?


I had a 50 inch projection tv and when the bulb would go out there was always a popping sound. I went on ebay and found a new bulb at half the price the tv maker wanted. I would replace the bulb. If that is not the problem then you will just have a spare that will be needed at some point.

Turned on tv with remote (this turns on cable box and tv). TV came on for a few seconds and then went off, no picture, no sound. Remote would still change channels on cable box, so it is obviously the...


Most of these have a shutdown feature built in and if you unplug the set, plug it back in and turn it on manually look carefully at the power light on the front when you turn the set OFF.

It should blink a specific sequence: 3 blinks, a pause and 3 blinks etc.

3,3 and 5,5 are the most common and mean different things are wrong.


Let me know if you are able to see the error code.

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?
