Question about Panasonic CT-36HL43 36" TV
I had the same problem. 45karats had the answer. It was the fuse and its replacement fixed the problem. You need to get to the back of the set (moving it away from the corner wall was no mean feat; this is the heaviest set I ever owned) and remove all the screws holding the back onto the chassis. Slide the back off slightly, maybe six inches (pry around the edges evenly) and you will be able to see the small fuse attached horizontally next to where the power cord attaches. CAUTION! There are several wires and circuit boards that move with the back of the set. Don't pull it back too far, but just enough to find and remove/replace the fuse. 6.3amp slo-blow fuse is what I used. Also DO NOT DEPRESS THE BUTTONS, LIKE THE POWER BUTTON, ON THE FRONT OF THE SET UNTIL YOU GET THE BACK COMPLETELY AND FIRMLY BACK INTO PLACE. I tried to test the set to see if it would come on before I had the back completely back on and the Power button went inside the cabinet! I had a hell of a time reaching in and prying it back through its slot in the front of the set. It is a simple plastic button that actuates the power switch, but only AFTER the back is in place. The switch moves with the cabinet so there is no resistance to the button until the back is fixed in place. I got the fuse at Radio Shack. Note the fuses they sell are 6.3 amp and 250v rated, vs. 125v that I took out of the set. I don't think the voltage rating is important but I could be wrong. It is the amp rating that is important. All I know is it works and I am relieved about that.
