Question about Panasonic PT-47X54 47" Rear Projection HDTV-Ready Television

1 Answer

TV Screen pauses, looks like a puzzle, then starts again..................???

I have a 3 year old Panasonic PT 47 x 54. Have had burn in twice, had bulbs changed twice. Burn in is back, but, not the problem. About 4 times an hour, the screen freezes, then looks like a jigsaw puzzle, then, starts again where it left off. Lasts about 3 seconds, but, the more it happens the more annoying it is, any ideas??? It happens also, when I am watching a DVD. Thanks in advance.

    the Toshiba tv screen looks like a jigsaw puzzle -- It just happens from time to time -- After the tv is on a while, it is impossible to watch -- the sound as well as the picture is so severely compromised. As nearly as I can determine, it is not on all channels. I have a small Panasonic tv in the kitchen but that tv does not seem to have that problem.



    I called Comcast and nothing seems to be wrong at their end.

Your problem is in the digital video processor circuit. This is a hard puppy to trouble shoot unless it happens all the time. Most of the sets I have seen do this, the main video processor IC is drfective and the repair was around 3 to 4 hundred bucks.

I have a Panasonic Model Number PT-56LCZ70, it is only a little over 3 years old. I have had to replace the lamp unit twice, now the TV just goes off and the red light blinks 8 times. We have done what...

There is a sensor where the door of the bulb is located. You will need to purchase (or by-pass) the door sensor to allow your tv to function again. It is located inside the small hole nearest the screws for the bulb door.

This sounds like a main power board issue. After you unplug it, it will work? Are you planning on trying to service it or having it serviced?
Thanks,

When i go to turn on the tv the red power light turns on and then starts flashing, with an all blank tv screen. I cant get anything but a black screen. The light will flash for a lil while, then the tv...

BLINKING RED LIGHT IS ERROR CODE.

1. Unplug set for a few minutes.

2. Plug back in and turn on.

3. When red power light starts blinking--COUNT THE BLINKS.

4. THREE BLINKS, pause, THREE BLINKS (ETC) IS SHORT PROTECTION AND A DO IT YOURSELF repair for some people. I have complete instructions for this repair.

5. 5 blinks, pause and 5 blinks etc is short on 140 volt line and while not as easy as 3 blink error code it points to places to look at.

Replaced convergence chips, have new problem

Did you check the 2.2 ohm 2watt resistors? As often one or two will blow when the old ICs fail. The 3 blink error is indicating a problem with the convergence circuit still.

Panasonic PT-51HX42F

Sometimes, in the Panasonic projection sets, one of the convergence IC's shorts out and draws so much current that one of the resistors next to it glows red hot. The computer senses the extra current and shuts the set back off. This is quite an easy problem to correct, but the set should be serviced by a qualified tech familiar with panasonic projection sets.
