Hi I have a Panasonic 36" TXPF10 TV. THERES different colors on the screen like a SPECTRUM, is there anyway of fixing this
Its what we call a purity problem on this 36 inch set and only two things cause it, the set (not getting too technical) uses a single part connected inside that when set is turned on powers a large coil around the picture tube--it just demagnetizes the tube---what happens is there is a single black square part there not much bigger than a cube of sugar---easy to spot as it will have three leads in a triangle shape---
What you will likely find if you can get the set apart---Its a real heavy set is follow the power cord to the board---real high chance you will find one of the three leads on that part has broken loose from the board, happens from all the heat at turn on that part gets real hot for a very short time.
You would be smart if one lead has come loose to solder all three---the part is often referred to as a thermistor--as it gets hot it cuts voltage off to the coil.
The other possible cause is only possible if set fell forward or was dropped, in that case the damage is fatal and cannot be repaired.
Let me know if questions.
