Swelling Picture After being on for approximately an hour, the picture starts to swell or expand. If we put a fan on it, it goes back to a normal picture, but we have to keep a fan on it.

Re: Swelling Picture

This effect will happen if the CRT (cathode ray tube) final voltage is dropping from its normal voltage, which is 25KV or may be more for a very large tube. Either the Power supply cannot supply enough power, or the tube is taking more current than it is designed to do. Too much brightness will cause this, so try reducing the Brightness and Contrast. There may be Gamma and Saturation as well to adjust. Try setting to a default position for these parameters. If the swelling effect is still present, the tube may be taking excessive current due to being `soft' ie: gassy or contain some air. Make sure the TV is clear of dust inside as this will create extra heating. Make sure you have the correct mains voltage setting. If this problem persists the line timebase will eventually fail. If you unplug the TV, remove the back, look for components of the line timebase. Make sure the line output transistor is properly fixed, so that it is being cooled by its heat sink. If you are not familiar with what to look for you must find a service engineer.

You have defective capacitors on your power supply. You can tell which ones by the swelling top. Replace caps with the same value and your good to go. Should be about 10 dollars in parts.

On your tv you have cooling fans on the back side you will need to check to make sure that they are running. Lay your tv on the bed take off back cover (it's not hard) and used some air-in-the- can to remove dust from the back! If you need a fan go to (1-866-925-PART

Hourglass picture. Panasonic CT-35G30T The picture is hour glassing from the sides. Starts to flicker back to normal after 1 to 2 hours. Getting progressively worse. Takes longer time to reach normal...

This is caused by bad solder connections in what's called the pincushion correction circuit. Some of the transistors get quite hot, and over time the solder connections to the TV circuit board become intermittent. When you tap the set, it causes them to make contact again so the picture is normal, but then it goes funny again. Resoldering the connections would take care of this problem. I would suggest calling a professional in to make the repair, which would cost far less than a replacement TV.

Hope this has been helpful, and thanks for using Fixya!

You may have a problem with the capacitor. Normally the ones on the power supply circuit are the first ones to go out. Have it inspected for leaks or swelling. Also check out the unit for burnt resistors.

Picture goes off

A temporary solution is to unplug the TV for a few minutes, remove static from the glass with your hand. It is important to unplug rather than turn off. If you have a degauss button you can also press that before unplugging. Wait several minutes or an hour. Then plug it back in. If you have Picture in Picture it may be an issue with that and to permanently solve may need a repair person. The unplugging may get you by for a few days at a time. That's at least better than an hour.

Avm 3259 picture problem

Vcc is on Pin 6 of the vert. output IC so you can trace that back to it's feed resistor (not sure the location number but you can find it easily by following the circuit trace). Depending on what your problem is you may need to replace some electrolytic capacitors as well. Follow pin 7(pump up) back to it's electrolytic cap. and look for swelling or bulging. Look for other bulged capacitors in the vertical section. You may also identify a bad resistor by a discolored look but not always, if in doubt meter it.
Let me know if you need some more info.

Good afternoon your tv could have some lose solder have a tech look at it.the problem is in the video circuit and related circuit.checkd should be made in the IF circuit.good luck.

Shrinking picture

All symptoms indicate a problem in the vertical circuit,the first thing to look for will be loose conection on the vertical output IC,sometimes this IC goes bad completly and it needs to be replaced.If you are familiar with soldering electronics you can take care of it but if you are not too familiar you can play it safe and take it to a servicer ,it will be a lot less expensive than if they come to your house.Let Us know how it goes or if you need more information.
