Question about Panasonic PT-47WXC43 47" Rear Projection Television

2 Answers

Comes on for about 3 seconds and then shuts off!

I turn the power on and it shuts off after about 2-3 seconds. I get a brief picture and then it's out. When it goes out my power indicator light blinks 3 times and pauses, blinks 3 times and pauses...so on and so on. Any ideas as to what may be causing this???

My Panasonic PT has developed the same problem: The repair folk came and replaced the "entire" electronics section! The guy said it was $1500 just for the section. He had no idea what caused the problem---just that Panasonic told him to replace the entire unit. I'm delighted it was still under warranty!

You have at least one bad LED strip, it is drawing to much current and shutting down the power supply for the lamps, you can fix this yourself but its not real easy getting the panel out and back.

When I turn the tv on the power light goes green for a couple of seconds then it shuts off and the picture never comes up.


Mitsubishi self check: MOST OF THESE SETS HAVE A SELF DIAGNOSTIC:

UNPLUG TV AND THEN PLUG BACK IN---TURN ON---GREEN POWER LIGHT COMES ONFOR A MOMENT AND GOES OFF.

PRESS AND HOLD "device" and "menu"buttons on front of tv for at least 5 seconds and then release both together.


Watch for power light to blink in a sequence:

1 blink-then 2 blinks-------no error

2 blink-then 1 blink-------X-ray protection

2 blink-then 2 blink-------SHORT PROTECTION*******

2 blink-then 3 blink---------deflection circuit problem

2 blink-then 4 blink---------vertical circuit problem


******2, then 2 is most common---usually means one of the fuses that protectthe Convergence IC or IC's is blown---set will detect no voltage to convergenceIC and shut down.


SET WILL REPEAT BLINK ERROR CODE UP TO 5 TIMES ANDTHEN TO GET IT TO REPEAT MORE YOUHAVE TO UNPLUG SET AND TRY TO TURN ON AGAIN.


IF IT IS 2 AND THEN 2---USUALLY
CONVERGENCE CIRCUIT PROBLEM

let me know what you find--hope that you find 2 blinks, a pause and twoblinks--this is the most common and easiest to fix.

Everytime I turn on mu playstation 3, no picture comes out in TV.


Try accessing the recovery menu 'safe mode'.



Press and hold the power button until the systems shuts off. (wait 2 seconds)

Press and hold the power button again until you here 3 beeps. Let go.



It should ask you to connect your controller via usb and press the PS button in

the middle of your controller. There will be a menu with 6 options. Try 2-5.


Try using HDMI cables and AV cables.
