    I do have the same problem with the set turning on then after a couple on minutes it snaps off with a pop. In the past if I just smacked the top of the set it would pop back on. Now however that is not working and the set just comes on with a thin twisting line in the middle of the set.I still have sound just no picture. Could this be the way the TV was wired this problem only started after my set was rewired by the cable service guy?

Usually, when a Panasonic projection powers up for a few seconds and then shuts down, it is because one of the convergence IC's is shorted and drawing too much current. This is usually very easy to troubleshoot because the shorted IC causes one of the large reisitors near it to glow red hot just before the set shuts down. The set should be serviced by a qualified tech familiar with Panasonic projection sets.

The three blinks is indicating that the convergence circuit has failed and shut the set down. You can get the convergence repair kit for your model from www.tvrepairworld.com which has the Parts and the CD with instructions for the repair

Panasonic PT-53TW53; Red shadows appear and then the t.v. shuts down.

The convergence output IC's have failed. Only fix is to replace them. These are large amplifier IC's bolted to heatsinks and have a high failure rate in all projection sets.

Red and Green Spots

Not a fix for do-it-yourselfers, but check with Panasonic as there is a new fix. Requires tech to come and reprogram the eprom (I think).
Cheaper than a new optic board.

Panasonic pt-51g53w

Usually, in the Panasonic projection sets that start but then shut right back off, one of the convergence IC's has shorted out and is drawing too much current. When the TV is turned on, the computer senses the extra current and shuts the set back off. The set should be serviced by a qualified tech familiar with Pansaonic projection sets.

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.
