Question about Panasonic PT-47WX49 47" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Panasonic PT-47WX49E The TV picture will all of a sudden "fade to black" like a light on a dimmer switch. Sometimes after a few minutes, the picture comes back and sometimes I have to shut if off for a while before the picture comes back. Can anyone help? Thanks.

    Thanks for the response!  I ended up using this as an excuse to purchase a 47" HD Plasma Display.  So nice.

The only thing I can think of that would make the picture fade to black is a loose solder joint on the filament supply. Each of the 3 picture tubes has a filament and if the 6.3 volt supply to those filaments is suddenly lost, the picture fades to black as the filaments cool down. An experienced tech can find and correct this for you quite easily.
