Question about Panasonic CT-34WXD65 34" TV

1 Answer

Dark area on screen

I have a Panasonic CT-34WX54 34" and I noticed I have a dark area in the middle of the left half of the screen. It is a circular area about 6 inches wide. I notice it mostly during sports or nature pictures where there is a solid background. It isn't noticable during normal shows but during sports like basketball and football you notice that part of the field or court is darker. Is this repairable and what might be causing it? When I show other people the is issue, they see a dark verticle band from top to bottom. I mostly only notice the circular area.

Re: Dark area on screen

If it's a circular area you might be delaing with magnetism. Check the menu and there should be a control for geomagnetic correction and adjust accordingly.

Horizontal line running on my GAO Panasonic

If the white line is in the middle of the screen and runs left to right the problem is in the vertical circuit of the set.

Either a bad part in that area or at the vertical output chip bad solder connections (most with this will react when set banged on side).

Note: leaving set on with only that line on screen will sooner or later burn that mark into the face of the screen--not fixable.

Panasonic TV TC-2175C, display turning dark

There are mainly two reasons for this fault. The first one is with its screen voltage settings. If the screen voltage settings have gone down [it can be happen automatically in rare cases], the screen will look dark. The second one is with its video output section itself. Anyway, you have to seek an experienced service technicians' help in this matter, if you are not handy in electronics.

Hi kseguin

Your TV has internal problem @ video stage on the circuit
But you may try to apply resoldering on the circuit board near flyback and CRT circuit board.

Line across middle of screen.

The line of color is due to a failure in the vertical circuit. The main suspects are the vertical Ic AN15525A and/or capacitor c308 220uf@35volts
If you have the capacity to do so, you should check the other electrolytic capacitors in the vertical circuit which are USUALLY located near the vertical IC in most cases
you can purchase the part at
or mcm electronics
