Question about Panasonic CT-36G34 36" TV

1 Answer

Black border I have a 36" Panasonic TV, approx. 9 years old. I think it is model CT-36G34, but I'm not 100% sure (it is very heavy, and I haven't had a chance to pull it out or the cabinet to see the label). Recently, I started to notice that approximately one inch on the left and right sides of the picture is black. It appears almost like a black border, only on the sides. The top and bottom are fine. It does not seem to affect the rest of the picture, but it seems to be getting worse.

I have 36" Panasonic CT-36SX12 TAU series. I had it repaired less than 3 years ago .and the same problem happened again As soon as turned the TV off it wouldn't turn back on .I was told this was the...

I would check the remote control by taking it out of the room first. If that is not the problem, it is likely to be a dry joint in the power supply that is "arcing" and causing this problem.
Re soldering the heavy components on the power supply board may fix it.

Tv screen is black except for 1 horizontal line of color

The line is there because the vertical deflection unit - the one that spreads that line across the entire screen to form the image - has failed. Replacing it is a job for a professional, or at least an experienced amateur, and the parts will be quite difficult to find for such an old tv .

Unable to view fullscreen in hdtv

That is the way HDTV is viewed on many screens as a wide fromat. So you will get top and bottom non-viewable areas. It is the width that gives the full imagery for that format. To have the screen filled you would get a standard 4:3 format like standard TV. HD is a 16:9 format so it is much wider.

Cant turn off panasonic PIP

To turn off the "stuck" pip on a Panasonic tv without a remote, turn off the tv. Then hold down the "Action" button on the front of the tv and press the power button. This will activate a reset and self check of the systems and voila! The pesky pip screen will be gone! This is on an approximately 10 year old regular crt "CT-xxxxx" series tv.

My Panasonic CT-36SX31 picture has an hour shape

Take a look around (say, within 12 feet of) the TV... anything that can generate an electrical field? Microwave... refridgerator... old school stereo speakers...

Pin cushioned is a term applied to a picture that's doing what you described. Adjustments to correct that are typically found in computer monitors.

I have an identical television to yours and that adjustment isn't available. You could try degausing, but I doubt that works.

Won't turn off

it can happen due to overvoltage shutdown circuit. when voltage is too high, tv will shut down. it is possible that this specific model doesnt fit your local electricity network.
