Question about Panasonic CT-34WX54 34" TV

1 Answer

Picture on Panasonic tv intermittently becomes striated and bottom half of picture shows on top half of screen

I recently bought a Panasonic tv (28 or 32 inches, non-flat screen) from a thrift store, and it seems in very good condition. Sometimes a movie will play all the way through fine, but frequently the picture becomes striated and flickers, and the bottom part of the picture will show on the top third of the screen. The effect resembles when the tracking on a VCR is off (except the picture doesn't scroll up or down). Any help or ideas given would be greatly appreciated! Thanks! Leah

Hello! What you're describing sounds like a vertical deflection problem if it also occurs when you're watching a TV program. This type of trouble is a component failing in the vertical circuit of your set. A loose solder connection could cause this. On the other hand, if it just happens when you run the VCR, your problem could be somewhere in the tape drive mechanism or possibly a bad tape. Things like slipping clutches,bad belts sticking guide rollers are a few things that will cause this in a VCR. You need to have a tech check it for you. Hope this gives you some help. Stargazer

I had my 50 inch panasonic veira flat screen tv on when it was thundering in lighting in now i have no hd


Hi Carlos,
Thundering and lightening can damage your set in many ways. Sometimes if you are lucky, you escape with a blown fuse and some minor safety components damaged. Well open the back cover and see if the fuse is blown. If there is no other visible damage, try a new fuse of the same rating. If the tv works, well and good and if the fuse blows again, please consult the TV tech.
Good luck.

MY Panasonic TV Model TX -33P100X showing half picture and half black screen. When switch off and on again sometimes the picture reappear.


hit your TV on left side or right side or on top & then observe ..........you will get normal picture or it comes & again it goes....if it is happening like that then following is the situation..........after 4 or 5 yrs in some TVs on main board ( also on CRT circuit board ) at some soldering joints crack develops....then due to loose contact picture becomes small in size or abnormal width, or rolls etc ...........when we hit that lightly then those loose contacts joins temporarly & again picture appears normally for some time............so solution is .....TV main board & CRT circuit board should be observed carefully & most of the joints should be re-soldered.......only a good service engineer can do that........even after hitting TV lightly if there is no response then main board has to be checked completely........in your case iam sure it is loose connection problem.........joints should be re - soldered ...100% it works again ................this problem cannot be solved by user unless user has idea about components( resisitors, transisitors, diodes,...etc) , have soldering iron , multimeter & other tools....................so contact good TV service engineer & just ask him to resolder joints ...........
