Hi and welcome to FixYa,

Most but not all electronic devices are fixable. It would only be limited by parts availability, cost consideration and knowledgeable service professional. Your indicated concern would appear to be relatively minor considering no other symptoms were posted. Such distortion could refer to anything and your best bet would be to access and reference a full service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings. This of course would require opening the unit, perform voltage measurements, determine faulty component and subsequent part(s) replacement. Further, a fair familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and a soldering iron would be required. Should you be uncomfortable performing a DIY (do-it-yourself), perhaps your best bet would then be to seek the services of a qualified professional.

Important information that you need to confirm and consider:

  • Chassis Number - V14
  • parts availability - most parts are NLA (No Longer Available) and therefore it would be advantageous to determine source of used, salvaged and pulled out components;
  • if you are considering a DIY - best would be to learn the operations and purpose of each board. Again the service manual would be of help;
  • investment - any investment made on the repairs of the TV would within certain limits would be acceptable assuming it was given for free.
Check and perform preliminary visual or necessary inspection. Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

Try setting up the convergence through the menu by accessing the convergence setup menu.
If your problem still exists you need to replace the convergence IC . It will cost you $20.

User manual /remote controll


Hi there,


You can download the manual for your tv if you use the link below it will take you to a site called diplodocs.com i have set the link up to take you to the right download page for your tv. If you click on the PDF file titled 'Download the complete user guide (2521 ko)' before it will allow you to download the manual it will ask you to rate your tv, it's easy to do and only takes a few seconds and it's also safe to do so. Once you have done that the 'download manual' box will activate, click on it you will then get a standard box open up with the options to 'open, 'save' cancel' you can choose which one you would like to do, if you save it then at least you will have a copy of the manual on your computer.
A universal remote control should be able to do the same functions as the original as you are able on some remotes to use their macro function to setup particular keys or a learning type of remote that will set itself up. Whether or not you would be happy with that is a seperate issue but if you do decide to go down that route then I would suggest to get the functionality you require you would want to buy a mid to higher end priced universal remote control made by either Philips or one for all. A direct Philips replacement remote control RC2015/01 which is listed as being the original remote is available to buy online, a quick look on one site was asking 44 US dollars.

Hope this helped,

James

I have a42PX75U Panasonic TV. Lately when I try to put a DVD or VCR tape I get a large black rectangular box that I can't keep off the screen. Any Suggestions?


ONE: Just unplug the power cord for 20 minutes, then power it back up.

TWO: Then, after the reset in ONE go into the on-screen-display area (or on the remote control for some sets) and disable the closed captioning.

That should clear it up.

Image too big


You have two possibilities; either buy the original remote or look up the code for 'universal' remote for that set here:
Remotes
If you can't find the code set for the remote & TV you have, look for a code set for one of the following brand names:
Funai, Symphonic, Sylvania, Emerson, Aventura, Durabrand, ESA, Magnavox, INSIGNIA, Philips and Misakai

These are all made and marketed by Funai.

Good Day, limao247;
Your TV may fluid on the PCB's. Remove the speaker grill, the small panel and look closely for fluid on the boards towards the front. Always unplug the TV for your SAFETY. If you find fluid clean board with acetone. Good Luck, big IRISH.

Picture in picture


i am not familiar with this model, but on most sets you will have a button on the remote to activate pip, when active you should be able to adjust channels on the small display with the remote and cycle through inputs. depending on the tv you will either have 2 inputs for your cable/sat/tv feed, or will have 1 with a dual tuner.
check the connections in the back for a second cable input, or hook up a dvd/vcr/game console/etc to test the pip.
start dvd or tape playing, press pip button to display the mini-screen, then use the tv/vcr or input button to cycle through the modes and see if one pops up. most tvs that have pip will also have a swap button on the remote, it may be labeled with text, or it may just look like one screen overlaying another, press that one to swap between displays.

hope this helps,
