Question about Panasonic CT-32SL15 32" TV

1 Answer

Red drained out of picture

I was watching a baseball game recently when I encountered this problem. Right before my eyes I noticed a subtle shift in color, I thought it was just the broadcast and changed the channel but soon found out that the problem was on all channels. The color red seemed to have just drained from the picture, I further verified this by going to NBC to see their peacock logo, the color red was drained from that completely. I messed with the color, tint, picture setting on the remote to no success. Turned the the TV on and off several times, unplugged it from the circuit breaker and replugged all to the same results. There's no red anywhere! Please advise! The unit in questions is a Panasonic CT-32SL15 Tau Series FlatScreen and I've only had it less than a year. I've never knocked it over, spilled anything on it and always keep it shielded from the sun etc. It's the first big screen I've ever bought so I'd hate for it to be busted already.

Re: Red drained out of picture

The red transister on the CRT socket could be at fault. there is 3 transisters on the socket check for the voltages on all 3. If the red is high unplug the socket and see if it normal if not the transister or circuit feeding has a short. If low the same case seneral applies and a resistor feeding the transister is defective or the transister itself is at fault

Picture goes out and red power light flashes

Up , i also encountered the same problem 3 days ago. 42" Fujitsu Plasmavission. I'll try to call an expert, i hope its not a digital board again for me, it will cost around $2,000usd so better buy a new Korean made LCD for better and cheaper parts. I guess you also experiencing trmendous heat at the back of your plasma right?

Rca tru flat tv has a red picture

Is your video input (from cable or satellite or fiber optic, etc.) coming from a coaxial cable, a component cable (red, green, and blue connectors), or an RCA cable (yellow connector for video)?

If you can, try an alternate input method and see if that makes a difference. Does it happen when watching DVDs or tapes, or when playing video games, or just when watching television?

Color adjustment on Sony 36" Trinitron

Unfortunately, the CRT (Picture Tube) is reaching its very end. Your set is not feasible to service even if the CRT would still be available from Sony or any jobbers.

I would be seriously shopping for a new TV set!

Screen is cutting off the sides

That is an ITC008 chassis and the problem you're referring to is called a breathing picture. One fault I am aware of in this chassis/model is the connector Bl103. I have seen a couple where the connector failed and had to be replaced. Could open it up and locate the conntector and see if it's vibration sensitive.

There are vertical and horizontal adjustment in the tv, however it requires removing the rear cover.
If you are unsure of the adjustments rather let a qualified tech service the tv for you.

The screen tilts to the left

The coils on the yoke that control the CRT must have shifted in order for the display to be tilted. A rare thing. You will need to take it to a competant tech to realign the coils as there are magnets and shims that all work together to get the picture to come out right and it is tricky to do.
Hope Ya Fix It!

Picture shifted and ghost image

Try using an input other than the tuner. I.e a DVD player or game system on the front inputs. If the picture looks OK on the other input, your tuner is damaged and will need replaced, if it looks bad also, try unplugging the TV for 5 minutes and then go through the setup process in the menus. If this fails seek a repair shop.

Manufactured January 1997 - Blurry white letters

Your TV is nearly 10 years old. Over a period of time, the Picture tube has become weak! (Technically, the Electron Emmissions from the Electron Heater Element has become reduced) Permanent solution is to replace it, but the cost will be prohibitive. Best is to get a new TV. Otherwise, take it into a Technician Shop, who will recondition it for a modest fee.
