Question about Panasonic CT-36D32 36" TV

1 Answer

My Panasonic TV

Once the TV is turned on it will shut off after a few minutes. I can get it to go back on if I take the cable wire off and push it back in were it connects into the back of the TV or if I leave it I will hear a clicking sound everynow and then like it is trying to turn itself back on which it does eventually. My cable goes from the outside to my cable box and then through my DVD player and then through an old VCR player until it end at the TV but I never had this problem until the last month.

Re: My Panasonic TV

Many TVs, including some Panasonic models, have an Auto-OFF feature that will automatically turn the set off after a few minutes, if the TV thinks it is not receiving a video signal. By reinserting the coaxial cable, you are probably restarting the Auto-OFF timer inside the TV. There are several possible things that could cause the Auto-OFF to falsely activate. Try and change the coax cable going from the VCR to the TV, if you have a spare. If not, plug the cable from the cable box directly into the back of the TV. Make sure the TV is on the correct channel, usually Ch 3 or Ch 4. (Do not use the original cable that was running from the VCR to the TV, just in case it is intermittent.)

Suspect either bad solder connections somewhere or a issue in the power supply of the set----set will shut down for a number of reasons--it monitors voltages inside and if some go high or low it will shut down.

Seems to me that the technician messed up something on the power board when he repaired the horizontal amp.. I would check for faulty solders, or components first. However, if you do not have prior experience, I would recommend getting a technician to do this, as it is very dangerous to open up a TV.

You could try a hard reset first and see if that helps: Unplug TV from power source and cables for about 2-3 hours and try again...

Tv shuts off, when i push power button it goes back can play for minutes or hours before it goes off again.

Try uplunging the power cord to the tv, for about fifteen minutes or so. That will clear the memory in the tv, you might accidently push the power button to many times at once.

Won't turn on

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!
