Question about Panasonic TX-28DK2 TV

1 Answer

Repetitive dull thumping noise

The picture is fine and the sound is fine apart from a dull pulsing sound every second or so which is very irritating. The sound is coming out of the speakers as distinct from a clicking noise from the back of the TV. Any thoughts?

Re: Repetitive dull thumping noise

You're in the UK, right? Try unplugging the set from the mains and let it sit for ten to fifteen minutes. Are your speakers built in or detached? How long has this been happening? Have there been any changes recently that coinside with the problem? Are there any other audio/video devices connected to the set? If you have other devices, does the problem exist when they're in use? The clicking noise sounds like a relay that's searching for another device or input. Check the audio settings on the menu to see if something has changed. Hope this helps.

Plug tv in but all it does is make a thump thump noise. power will not come on.

The problem is most likely caused by a defective fly-back transformer, it generates the high voltage that energizes the picture tube and along with the video circuits produces a picture, to repair the set would not be cost effective when you consider the parts and labor involved, better to replace.

No picture but the red power button blinks each time it blinks there is a thumping noise from speakers and a clicking sound

try checking the fuse area, together with the capacitor & resistor may one of them is faulty. and also check for any bad soldered.

let me know

Sony kv32s42 trinitron color tv blinking

sounds like a bad picture tube. Picture and bright settings cranked up for a good pic? Test/rejuv with a crt tester and/or look at the Ik signal on the crt board. A good tube has 3 small pulses during blanking. The crt cathodes are checked with these pulses, pulses too low and the jungle IC will blank the drive. If the picture fades in and out I would check the filament ckt but that doesn't support the "blinks"

White Noise Sound

Your problem is somewhere between the tuner and video detector circuit. The signal entering your TV carries: video,red color,and blue color as well as sychronizing pulses for color and horizontal and vertical deflection ( actually vertical sync. is derived from horizontal sync.) along with burst pulses to synchronize the color. After all these, the sound is an fm signal entwined with a pilot signal for stereo audio. WHAT a mess! After the audio passes through all this, it is detected and sent to the audio processor. If any frequency has drifted away from it's value then you loose the sound. SO... your problem could be in any of the tuned circuits or in the audio processor IC (chip). Any component changing value could creat this problem. Most likely the audio processor IC. You'd need to have the set checked out by a tech to find your problem. Stargazer

KV-XJ29M50 29" TV-Loud thumping sound on startup

Symptoms are not related,what you hear is the high voltage turning on and that is normal if it only does it for less than a second,the grainy picture might be intermitant,dont turn it off,when the picture is grainy tap the side of the set to see if it racts and if it does you know you have a loose conection.This could be outside because of a loose ground on tha cable or inside in the tuner.
