Question about Panasonic PT-51HX42 51" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

TV not staying on

The TV comes on for about 3 seconds. As soon as you can here the sound the tv shuts of by itself. I can't see any picture. There's a red light on the front of the tv near the power switch. This light comes on steady for about 3 seconds and then the tv shuts down and the little light starts blinking. It just started all at once.

Re: TV not staying on

If you're NOT still under warranty you should at least open the TV and look for a blown fuse near where the power cable enters the set. A lot of times you can buy replacement fuses at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace. Check the fuse. If it is blown, it will be obvious and make sure that the set is unplugged before replacing it. If it blows again, or if it is not blown, your problem is probably in the 'X' volt regulator and you will need professional help with the repairs. You can also check the board where the components are mounted and resoled any that look bad. Brief power outages may cause the TV to turn off on its own. If you are using a surge protector, try connecting the set directly to the wall outlet. In your case it could caused by a blown fuse, a leaky diodes or a bad solder joint at the horizontal drive transformer. All can be replaced at a local electronic or hardware store and they're easy to replace If this does not correct the problem, you may need to have your TV serviced. good luck!

The first thing I would do is to check the solder connections on the flyback transformer. This is a common problem with this set
