Question about Panasonic PV-C1321 13 in. TV/VCR Combo

Loss of picture and sound repeatedly

The picture and sound suddenly has a lot of interference and then goes off. It acts as if there is a loose connection. We can get the picture and sound back temporarily by jiggling the cable in the back of the TV. Replaced the cable but did no good. Thank you.

Re: Loss of picture and sound repeatedly

You already hit the nail in the head,the problem might be the actual conector loose inside the set or the tuner has loose conections to the main board,the shell of the tuner is the ground make sure the conections are solid,if you are familiar with tv service this will help but if you are not too familiar be safe and call for help,right now it should not be expensive.

Samsung TSL2793HF - Slight Right Side Pincushion and Horz Line Bottom to Top Until the TV Warms up

Yes, this is rare but I have seen it before--not fixable if it is what I think it is----It is what is called a Dome effect---the shadow mask in the picture tube is actually contracting and or expanding depending on temperature---

Directly behind the phosphor coating (the stripes that you see on the screen) is a metal screen--the holes or perforations in it line up with the stripes on the phosphor screen.

Some masks either have a material or a defect causing the dome effect----Not likely to be anything else---a Pin amp problem will not usually act the way you describe but a shadow mask inside the picture tube will act exactly that way.

Picture is really dark. I can see outlines of picture, but no color. I turned up brightness all the way.

Hi, Did the TV go darker gradually or did it happen all of a sudden? Sounds like the tube went!
You Can do a test or two?

Our orion t.v. started doing this this will all of a sudden lose the picture, the sound is still there but now picture. i can turn it off and a few minutes turn it back on and its there,. then...

Tv turn on,this happen.Make a fist bang on the tv frame,see if tv have a picture come back or have it flashes in and out?Yes,than tv is having cold soldering joints on the video board pins that connections to between video board and the CRT-(tv tube) those joints connections pins on the video board are to make the CRT-(tv tube) to have a picture.U have all the tools like a soldering iron,a roll of solder and also can u do basic soldering work?Yes,take the tv aparts.The video board,that the the board that connected to the CRT-(tv tube).Resodering all the soldering joints connections pins between CRT-(tv tube) and video board should solved this problems.Or tvs shops can do those resoldering for u,by telling them the problems.It should cost u like around $50.

I have an Emerson DVD VHS combo and when ever I Play a tape I have sound but no picture but If I rewind the movie I can see the picture but when I push play it goes back to a snowy screen How do I fix...

The loss of picture in playback mode is due to a dirty video head or heads. You might be able to solve this problem with a simple head cleaning tape. if not, the video heads will need cleaning manually.
This should me performed by a TV technician as there are some dangerous voltages inside.
if you choose to do the repair yourself, you need to disassemble the unit to reveal the VHS player itself. Inside there is a round shiny video head. This part is at a slight angle and should be. Dont try to adjust it. Take a piece of paper, saturate it with alchahol or acetone and place the paper flat against the side of the video heads. Spin the heads in counterclockwise direction only paying close attention to the small slots near the seam of the two heads, upper and lower cylinder. Carefully wipe clean with cotton swab and let dry a while before using the unit.

The picture on our tevion television just disappeared. We have sound, but no picture at all. this happened very suddenly in the middle of a news broadcast.


If everything else works - there is sound and high voltage (static on the screen) - but there is no picture (including no on-screen menus), this limits the likely area of problems is the video output circuitry or CRT filament connections. Check to see if the CRT filaments are glowing. If they are not glowing, check for bad soldering on the CRT neck board and around the flyback transformer.

Where the picture is erratic - coming and going entirely or changing brightness suddenly, with power off, remove the picture tube socket (carefully!) and clean the pins with fine sandpaper and use contact cleaner on the socket. This source of bad connections can result in a variety of erratic symptoms. Check for bad solder connections on the CRT neck board.

Video Recording causing Picture interference

When you are recording, do you hear the vhs tape(motor) moving? Is the tv\vcr combo connected to the same power(electrical) plug with ANYTHING else ? On the SAME wall outlet with anything that generates noise?. Do you have ANYTHING ( electric clock ) WITH a motor connected to the same line\wall\outlet\power adapter?
2nd) Any loose ground [wires that go to any menal part inside TV\VCR will cause problems. Be very carful inside electronics parts and when they are alive [pluged in & turned on], Some times loose VHS rubber bands cause problems by slipping and jerking the tape recording.

Picture break up

My first gut tells me that this is a power supply problem. The power supply runs out of capacity due to the increased load of the audio amp. Possible problems might be power supply capacitors have changed their value (lowered), if it has a linear power supply, the full wave bridge (that converts AC to DC)might have a bad diode, if it is a switching power supply one or more of the output capacitors may actually be open. Another possible problem is a cold solder joint. Does the picture breakup occur when the case is slapped? This could indicate a mechanical failure (like a solder joint). Is this the only symptom that this set has?
