    I have the same problem with a CT-36HL42, which is most likely caused by a failed power supply.



    Does anyone know how difficult it is to replace the power supply for a technically inclined DIY individual?

    I have the same problem with a CT-36HL42, which I believe to be the result of DOA power supply. Happened earlier today. If I find anything, I'll post it.

    I have encountered the same problem. Any more info on the fuse location?

    I have the same problem (for the second time). It cost me about $220 to replace a switch the first time. The TV worked for about 8 months and then it went out again. Is this something that easy to replace?

I can concurr with "Mario in NY" solution. My CT-36HL42 would not power on but after replacing the fuse (6A125V?) it is operational.

I had the exact same problem with this model a few months ago. Repairman came out to my house and told me that Panasonic is well aware of the problem but never issued a recall on it. He then charged me $150 to take off the back of the tv and replace a blown fuse with another fuse with a slightly higher voltage rating. Took him all of 5 minutes. He took off back of tv and the fuse is located, if you are standing at the back of the tv, on the bottom in the left hand corner. You can't miss it. I wish I could tell you which fuse he put in but I didnt see it. Sorry. Try it for yourself and you might be able to save $149.50, b/c I doubt that fuse cost much more then 50 cents. Good luck.

The TV will not power on at all


Is the set completely dead? if so you should see no indicator lights and hear no "click' when the power button is pressed. If so than the only thing wrong with the set ic the main Fuse (6.3A 250VAC) has blown.

Main fuse blown on CT-32G11 32" Panasonic TV, Replacement fuses continue to blow.


If the main fuse keeps blowing, check the horizontal output transistor for a shorted condition and diodes in that section as well.

Tv is completely dead


Only 10 years old??? Ok its most likly at the end of its usefull life, unless you want to put some cash into the set, as there are no user replaceable parts inside this TV, so you really should let a trained tech estimate it for you. But once you fix it, you most likly will start have problem after problem. Do yourself a favor, and buy a new one. The problem with this set is most likly the flyback and other componets or the power supply capacitors are bad.

TV does not turn on


I'm looking for the same info... my CT-32sx12f is completely dead too. I was wondering if the IC regulator or the flyback is bad. Fuse is fine. Anyone have any wisdom or experience on these sets they can interject? Thanks!

3year old Panasonic ct-32sx12f dead?


Sure, Why not? It is worth the effort. If the set is 'dead', it is the easiest to repair.Only 'tampered' sets pose problems. It could be a simple blown Fuse, or the Power Regulator IC. This should not cost you more than $100-150 as Technician charges + 15-20$ for spares. It could also be a defective Horizontal Outut Transistor and short cicuiterd FBT, (tho' it seems remote), but if yes, add another $100. definitely worth calling a professional techie
