Question about Panasonic CT-36SL14 36" TV

2 Answers

CT-36SL14 powers on with clicking noise.

We recently purchased a used panasonic CT-36SL14, manufactured in March of 2004.

In the beginning the set would not power on. We noticed that a fuse had been pulled, and we replaced it.

While the cover was off, we noticed that there was an 8 pin white connector that was disconnected. It appeared to be disconnected from a circuit board attached to the back of the picture tube. We reconnected this connector.

The set then powered on, but will almost immediately begin making a clicking noise that sounds very much like a vehicle turn signal.

We have picture of sorts, but the set is currently in our garage, and so does not have an antennae or cable hooked up to it. We expected to get snow, we did not. What we do have are horizontal pale green and light purple lines. Not being an expert I would describe them as snow, if snow had been digitized into green and purple lines. The lines move, flicker, etc as snow would.

Any pointers as to solutions would be much appreciated.

    An edit to my original post:

    The set behaves in the following manner:

    Powers on normally.
    Screen displays with green and purple vertical lines.
    This lasts approximately 6 seconds.
    Screen then goes black.
    Clicking noise begins.
    Unable to do anything at that point except unplug the set. None of the front controls work at that point.

    No. We were told it needed a fuse. We were aware it needed small repairs, but this seems to be something else entirely.

    Thanks very much for the insight:-) While we can't get our money back, as it was purchased from a state agency, we also didn't pay a huge amount for the set. (Relative to its original cost anyway. To us it was a bit of a stretch.)

    More than anything else we are disappointed that it wasn't a simple fix, and are now down one gift for my son at the holidays.

    It sounds like you purchased a set that someone had started trying to do a repair on and gave up. That's probably why it was being sold. Did you ever see it work normally before you bought it?

Sorry, but you've been had. From what you describe, it sounds like the set is going into high voltage shutdown. It does this if picture tube voltage goes over limits that might cause excess x-ray radiation, and the only way to clear the shutdown is to unplug the set. A number of things might be causing the problem, including a bad picture tube which would exceed the cost of a new TV. Without checking the set myself I couldn't suggest anything specific, and there are few repairs you would be able to try for yourself without the tools and some experience.

The only "solution" to this, I think, is to try to get your money back from the seller as the item was misrepresented, and apply it toward a set you can see working before you buy it.

Tv will not turn on 32'' panasonic ct-32sl14

first check to see if any power is getting to set. if so then see if your power light is on. i would then proceed to check the power supply and see if there is 160v on the main filter. then go to your horizontal circuits. i advise more than anything for you to have a service tech to do these things for you. write back and tell me your voltages.

Does a CT-27614A need a digital converter for antenna?

I hope this soultion is helpful.

How can I be sure that I am buying a digital TV (DTV)?
By law, beginning March 1, 2007, all television reception devices (including TVs, VCRs, DVRs, etc.) imported into the U.S. or shipped in interstate commerce must contain a digital tuner. Retailers may continue to sell analog-only devices from existing inventory, but must prominently display on or near the analog-only device a Consumer Alert label with this advisory:

What is the difference between “Integrated” DTVs and DTV or HDTV “Monitors”?
An Integrated DTV set is a television with a built-in digital tuner (also referred to as “a DTV”). A digital tuner is also sometimes called a DTV decoder or DTV receiver. If you have an Integrated DTV, you will not need any additional equipment, with the exception of a broadcast antenna (either a rooftop antenna or “rabbit ears” connected to the set), to receive over-the-air digital broadcast programming. Integrated DTVs can also receive and display analog broadcast programming, so you can continue watching analog broadcasts.
In contrast, a DTV Monitor is not capable of receiving digital broadcast programming without additional equipment; it is simply a display device without the processing capability for DTV reception. A digital or HD set-top box must be connected between the antenna and the monitor to receive and display over-the-air digital or HD programming.
If you have a digital or HD “Monitor” and would like to purchase a digital or HD set-top box to view over-the-air programming, confirm with your retailer that the set-top box is compatible with your Monitor.

You should call for warranty service. If the set is very new try to get it exchanged.

There are some very heavy duty power supplies and many high power matrix drivers used in Plasma sets.

The description sounds like the noises are very loud. It is normal with any of these TV sets, if you put your ear right up to the back of the set at the vent holes you will hear some noises. These would be some acoustic harmonics from the power supplies and related circuits.

I am wondering if it is possible that there is something that is becoming less stable. If the set is working very well without any failure, so-far this is a very good sign. Before it gets to be a problem, I would have this checked.

On many models of these sets, they use fans for cooling specific areas. A bad fan can cause noise.

Tv will not turn on

This set has a common problem with th main fuse opening for no other apparent reason... One of the few exceptions to my corner-stone statement that a fuse is never the cause only a symptom..
Don't replace it though with the same type grade, use a 6.3a slo-blow gma type - available at Radio Shack... Try that and if everything works you're back in business.. If not we nee to find a cause...
