Question about Panasonic CT-32SL15 32" TV

1 Answer

Blurry Picture got blurry. Read some good stuff here and opened the back. I notice that the entire thingy attached to the tube slipped. The white attachments to the tube are offset like the thing slipped 3/4 inch on one side. What hope do I have of fixing it? I have rubber lineman's gloves... do I just jerk back into place?

Re: Blurry

You may have had a short in the picture tube. When you heard the click the short may have burned itself out. If this is the case it may happen again OR never again? The yoke shouldn't have slipped. They're either bonded or clamped the the neck of the picture tube. All the I've ever seen that have moved from their proper position have messed up the color convergence and the purity of the color.

I have a Mitusbishi CS-40503 tv that is approximately 17 years old. When I turn it on, the entire picture is blurry (like your glasses are off) and then after about 7 minutes, the picture is crisp and...

Hi sletwin,
This symptom indicated of faulty CRT socket (picture tube socket). A few days or weeks time the symptom will remain and will not back to clear picture. Below is the sample picture of the socket where is connected to the picture tube.

You may replace it yourself if you have a little knowledge in soldering and disoldering technique. There are two wire soldered in this socket from the flyback, one is the screen and the other is the focus.
Try to buy from your local electronics supply, bring the actual sample because many types are available at the market.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Hope I helped you.
Have a nice day!
Thanks for using Fixya.

Sony Trinitron kv-27HFR blurry

the picture tube is gone.
i repaired 150 sony xbr and kv series with that has a single gun not three and has a great pix,but burn out faster.
there is a main screen control that you can adjust ,but the tube is gone.
on the back of the crt there is 3 gun drives r g b .
turn the color all the way down so it is black and white.
if there is a green ore purple tint,one gun is out of balance.
ajdusting the r g b controls so that black and white is normal is what you want to do.
the crt board has the screen bias voltage 800volts on it so be very careful and use an insulated screwdriver to adjust the drive controls.

Blurry Picture

I too had the same problem where my HT30744 TV would lose its color or picture would get blurry. My mom's HT32744 would have the same problem too. They both are refurbished models bought at Value City Dept store. If I gave the cabinet a good hit it would mostly fix the color, but it could also make the picture go fuzzy too, a clear sign of just a loose connection somewhere.

So after my wife telling me she was sick of this almost 2 year problem and she was going to buy a new TV on the weekend, I figured I had nothing to lose. So I took the rear cabinet off, unseated the card mounted on the picture tube, applied a little dielectric grease on the connector on the card and reseated the card, removed, re-greased and reattached the card. I have had no problem with either my or mom's which I did the same to since! This is an easy fix that anyone can do. The hardest part is moving the TV and reassembling the rear cabinet. Do not pull the cabinet back out more than you have to, to ease the reassembly of it.

You probably have a focus problem. Possibly the focus control has opened. If so, then you would have to have the Flyback (High Voltage transformer) replaced. The control is integrated into the flyback. Depending on the labor chages and parts prices would determine if you want make that kind of investment. Other problem can also cause this effect such as a bad picture tube, open resistor,bad picture tube socket, etc.

Manufactured January 1997 - Blurry white letters

Your TV is nearly 10 years old. Over a period of time, the Picture tube has become weak! (Technically, the Electron Emmissions from the Electron Heater Element has become reduced) Permanent solution is to replace it, but the cost will be prohibitive. Best is to get a new TV. Otherwise, take it into a Technician Shop, who will recondition it for a modest fee.

Sounds like theres a leaky capacitor in the screen drive circuit. I have seen this problem also be a gassy crt but was able to clean off the grids of the CRT with a crt/rejuvinator. It happens because of low emmissions in the tube and when white is on thats a mix of all the colors, so the tube works harder. I bet when you whatch a movie and the scene changes suddenly to a white or brite scene the pic looks a little washed out. If this is not the case then I aggree with the Pravin and try it on another TV just to be sure .. This is not a repair for a consumer to do, though however it is only a three year old set you stated, so there should be life left in the tube, so im kinda thinking a capacitor is bad. Seek out a yechnician to check this out for you as a TV is not a place to see it you can fix it or to exoeeriment with. Good Luck
