Re: The TV won't do anything

Power surge and lighting do a lot of damage ,you will be lucky if you only find the bridge rectifiers shorted(maybe just one) and a open fuse,that will give a place to start but expect more extensive damage.Be carefull

Hi there, do you have the schematics for the Panasonic CT-27sf37b. This TV won't power up but making a high pitch sound near the thermistor area. Thanks.

Hi Richard,

First of all thank you for contacting regarding your TV problem.

You have mentioned that you can hear a high pitch near the thermistor area and the TV won't power up. I've saw also in another link that you already replaced the thermistor but the symptoms still persist. You stated that the thermister heats up, that is normal and not an issue in this kind of symptoms. You can power up the unit even without the thermistor in the board and check if the high pitch will gone or not. But I've suspected that the symptoms will remain the same because the pitch came from the chopper transformer.

I've encountered this kind of symptoms not only on panasonic CRT TV's but almost in all brands. And the major caused of fault is the faulty electrolytic capacitor in the Voltage regulator IC. Your unit used STRF6524 (mounted on the aluminum heat sink) as voltage regulator IC and it has an electrolytic capacitor on its circuitry. I would advice you to replaced it to resolve the issue. The largest electrolytic capacitor is not the suspect here (don't replaced it).

Also check for bad solder joints around the regulator IC. Cracked, cold, dried solder can produced that kind of symptoms. It is hard to spot, you must used magnifying glass and work in the brightest area or much better to re-solder the suspected bad solder joints.

I have various of Panasonic schematic diagram but most of them is a LCD and Plasma TV. I don't have this model no. but please check the chassis no. of your unit and I will try again to find it on my supplier to give it to you for free as much as possible because I've saw it HERE but I don't think the price is reasonable.

Please let me know if you need further assistance.

Again, thank you and have a nice day!

Kind Regards,

To my knowledge a CMKM-P3X is a generic interface board assembly, generally used by many electronic manufacturers. I am therefore inclined to think that this is not the real part number or board number for that matter.

Having said that, is it possible for you to provide photos/images of the burned board or component? There is a possibility that generic/replacement/refurbished may then be available.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

check The B+ of your tv. If no b+ Check the input AC voltage. If Ac i/p are ok but no B+ Volt maybe your IC in power supply has problem.

No Power to my TV after power outage

A lot of times its simply a fuse that goes out. Either way someone is going to have to open it up and inspect the fuses first. It 's a fairly inexpensive service call.

Hopefully the fuse took the hit from the storm.

The problem has nothing to do with Vista. The solder joints have come loose on your vertical output IC. This is very common in those Panasonic TV's. If you have experience in working on TV's then you can disassemble the set and resolder the pins of the vertical output IC and your picture will be fine. Otherwise, allow a qualified tech to handle it for you. It is a quick and simple procedure and should not cost too much.
