Question about Panasonic CT-27G13 TV

CT-32HL42 Panasonic will not turn on

When I press the switch, nothing happens. The stand by on light is off but one does not need that to be on if you manually try to turn it on. Also, the remote will not turn it on either. This is what happened. One day I turned the tv off manually. Later that day when I tried to turn it on manually it would not start. Then about a week later, I pushed on it and it did start. I turned it off again, and since then I cannot get the tv to start at all. One thing, this is either a CT-32HL42 or a CT32HX42, but I cannot turn this behemoth around to verify which. I just know the model # from my owner's manual, which shows two model #s for my TV. I imagine there is not much difference.

    Hello, What we found out is that the fuse needed to be changed.

    Thank you for input though.

    Hi, have a 2003 Panasonic CT32HC43 HD capable TV that just now won't turn on at all. Went and got a box of fuses from Radio Shack based on everyone's advice and the TV is working fine. The old fuse was and did look bad. I had a pair of angled pliers and was able to get the old fuse out and new in through the small access hole.

    Thanks - you helped me fix the TV

I've had the exact same problem and had a service person repair it for $300. But this problem occurred again and I noticed that this may be a child-proof feature of the TV that many people don’t know about. When turning on the TV you will hear a clicking noise in about a second or two, but if you were to turn on the TV while holding down the TV/VIDEO button on the TV itself then you will not hear this clicking noise and will lock your TV from starting. To reset this lock you will need to unplug the TV for few seconds and then plug it back in which will reset this lock. I have used this feature now for a while since my year old son loves to turn the TV ON/OFF.

Thanks for the "fuse" tip. Replacing it cured my 6 year old Panasonic CT32HX42 "no power" problem.

Hi, I own the panasonic ct-36hl42

great set, but this has happened again to me and it has happened to me about a 3 yrs ago. I have heard this problem and often it is the fuse next to the plug once you take off the back of the set. I am trying to order one from panasonic but they won't sell me it. It only runs about $3.50. I requested a schematic from panasonic and they won't give me one either. I have had sets in the past , like jvc and they provided shematics for the set, and any time I needed work I would provide the schmatic which the tv repairman was grateful for.
I am finding Panasonic to be a terrible company for support and will never ever buy panasonic again since they seem to enjoy telling you NO they won't give it to you.
I have a samsung lcd flat 40" on the wall and needed service and found samsung much better. I believe Pansonic prefers to sell new stuff and does not give poop about the after market customer.

anyway, I am going to buy the fuse through a local tv repair shop whom I have befriended. He showed me the fuse the last time it broke and showed me how simple it was to replace. Note, the fuse is located next to the power plug once you take off the back. I have heard this fuse goes out often.
My advice....Stay away from Panasonic.!

These sets have a number of problems like yours which are associated with bad solder connections or cold solder joints. On this set one pin on the the start-up relay is usually open or intermittent The solution is to resolder connections on main p.c board. and especially on the vertical output IC. Also change the caps in the vertical section to avoid future problems. Scrivitron.

Panasonic color TV model CT-32G9J won't turn on.

been a long time since fixed an crt tv. but if you have a stand by light the problem on this model is the control chip if remember right it sits on the left side near to the front. think its an 8 pin chip. these just go and it will not turn on. these chips are easy to get hold of and are cheap. you just need to remove it and replace with a new one. and the tv will work again. its not on the power board but is controlling the power start up. if there is no stand by light its a longer problem to solve. it could be a number of problems. would need to know if any problems happened before the tv did not turn on.

32'' Panasonic television. Power switch does not turn the set on.

1 It appears that connecting cable is faulty. Normally when you connect and push the power switch the standby light should lit. Try the cable on another appliance and see its function. Also switch on the TV and try to switch it on with your remote control.

Tv won't turn on at all

no remote but tv was working with front power key? unplug from ac outlet and plug back and listen for any type of indication (noise or chirp) that something energizes inside if theres nothing then suspect a power supply problem, main fuse blown, shorted low volt rectifiers other components could be at fault.

Fuse constantly blowing on 32" Panasonic HDTV Tau (ModelCT-32HL42)

Change fuse from F6.3 amp to T6.3 amp (Slo-Blo).

The problem is the surge of current at turn on.
