Question about Panasonic TX-36PF10 TV

Panasonic TX-36PD30L not starting

I have a 4 year old TV  from Panasonic. Good TV but yesterday had a problem with the power supply to our house which resulted in dimmed house lights. Electricity is now back to normal but with the TV in standby mode (red light on) it attempts to start up but then goes back into standby mode. No video or sound at any stage. The TV was on during the power fault and while I managed to turn it off pretty quickly I did hear a 'scraping noise' before I managed to switch it off. Perhaps its some kind of fuse that has blown?

    Tried that. Same result. Seems to spend 5-6 seconds trying to turn itself on (red standby light off) and then back to standby light on. Could it be the tube?


    Model number is TX-36PD30L from the operating instructions manual. No spaces

    Have tried the suggestion of unplugging and holding the power button in for 30 secs.

  • gejkelly Jan 18, 2009

    Thanks for the advice. I would not try what you are suggesting so it sounds like it needs to go for a repair. Is there anything else I could try short of getting it repaired? No easy fix or reset button? Its a monster to move anywhere.

    Ok. Thanks to others as well

You might go ahead and call a repair man...trying all sorts of things people suggest will drive you nuts...it could be the main board or a simple circuit or a tube..its hard to say on here what the problem actually is

Hi and welcome to FixYa,

For some reason, as CRTN has posted, Panasonic TX-36PD30L does not appear among the Panasonic models of TVs. Still applying some basic troubleshooting would require that:

  • opening the unit;
  • perform voltage measurements, determine faulty component and subsequent part(s) replacement;
  • fair familiarity of electronic components/circuitry and safety procedures, use of a DVM and a soldering iron ;
  • access to a service manual or at the very least a schematic diagram with voltage readings.
Initial focus would be on the power supply:
  • most likely the fuse is not blown, you still have the red light on;
  • this indicates that the +5VDC standby B+ is active, power is getting inside and at least one parts of the PSU is operational;
  • "attempts to start up but then goes back into standby mode" indicates the unit is auto-protecting, the built-in diagnostics has sensed a fault and protects the unit from turning on to prevent further damage to the circuitry;
  • once the power supply is accessed, determine and remove the connector to the mains B+ (roughly 150VDC +/-);
  • if the power supply turns on, then problem is on the main board;
  • if power supply does not turn on, then problem is in the power supply itself;
  • if the problem is on the main board, then procedures would be the same. Remove B+ connection to major components to determine if they are causing the fault. Among the 1st to be tested would be the HOT (horizontal output transistor). This would be a big transistor attached to a heatsink very near the FBT (flyback transformer);
  • thereafter, all major components have to be checked.
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.

Pls post back result(s). Good luck and Thank you for using FixYa.

    Unfortunately, no buttons/key pressing fix; this is a hardware problem and offhand would require replacement of components. Perhaps an initial check-up by a qualified professional for an estimate/quotation would be in order. Based on that your decision for repairs could be made.

    If the cost of repairs and downtime would be factored in, then you may have to re-evaluate your options and consider a replacement.

How do you know that it's the problem? Do you hear the relays come on? Does your tv blink? How many blinks? That is a vital part in diagnosing a panasonic tv.

It can also be the YMain board or the back light inverter board or a capacitor or fuse has blown on the power supply board. Which you usually lose sound before you lose both sound and picture. Try to hard reset is for about 4-6 hours by completely unplugging it.

3 YEAR OLD SANYO DP 32746. SHUT ITSELF OFF, CAN NOT TURN BACK ON


If you leave the tv unplugged for 2 days (atleast) then plug it back in and try to turn it on and if it comes on its the power supply board. If it comes back on it will probably shut off between 30min to 4hrs and you would have to unplug it for 2 days again. All the power needs to drain out of the tv. If thats the case take the back pannel off and check the part number out on the internet. Not hard to do becarefull touching things the power supply does store a little bit or shock in it. Good Luck.
