I just received the same model from a neighbour because it too wouldn't power on after suddenly quitting. The T.V. rrepair shops quoted $160.00 to $250.00 to fix the power supply/transformer. All I did was rremove the back and check if the circuit board was actually receiving power from the corsd - it wasn't. I then replaced the plug, plugged it back in and the set works prefectly now. This is a commonm problem with panasonic and certainly does not require the services of a technician, not the exorbatant costs quoted to repair. Simply cut off the plug and replace with a sturdy self sealing/connecting one available at any hardware store for less than $1.00.

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.
I have a user guide which consists of 21 pages. FYI, you can contact Panasonic Consumer Electronics Company, Division of Matsushita, Electric Corporation of America --- One Panasonic Way, Secaucus, New Jersey 07094 or email - www.panasonic.com
Once you take the back off there is a glass gma fuse withing a few inches of where the power cord plugs into the board at. This should be a 6.3 or 6.5 gma fuse. Very common to blow in your model because the degausing coil is a little to big for it. There are other reasons for it to blow but 99% of the time you change change it and the set will work again. Let me know if you need more help or info!
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?
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
