Question about Panasonic CT-30WC14 30" TV
We have had the TV for 6 years - no problem. This morning when it was tried to turn on, it wouldn't. The power button is just sitting there with the power button blinking. I have already tried unplugging it and all. I have a similar problem the power light won't even come on when i plug it in. If i leave it unplugged for a while and plug it in, it sounds as if power is coming on but nothing happens. model # ct-30wc14j hdtv 1080i 2004 model for some reason the c14j is not a valid product but thats what it says on the back of the tv ' _ '
By the sound of it its a dead power supply im afraid :( It is very common for them models at that age very common... it may be cheaper to fix then buying a new one but ill let you decide that one but yea theres hundreds of people that have the same problem with them panasonic's bummer dude :(

That is the way HDTV is viewed on many screens as a wide fromat. So you will get top and bottom non-viewable areas. It is the width that gives the full imagery for that format. To have the screen filled you would get a standard 4:3 format like standard TV. HD is a 16:9 format so it is much wider.

The power led blinking is an error code if you can reply to this same post and let me know the number of blinks I can assist you with what it means.

A dead set (no picture no sound) can indicate any number of problems – Usually the set is in shutdown or protection mode – this means that the internal circuits have detected a problem with a supply voltage missing, drawing too much current, going over voltage or a short condition.
The first thing to do is power off the set unplug it for 5min. than replug and try again. This in effect resets the main micro and will sometime unlatch a fault and resume working. There are certain common problems based on the make model – for instance convergence output IC’s can cause a dead set symptom in many models. Vertical output IC failure can also cause the same symptom.
The only way to determine the real cause is #1 an educated guess based on experience or by directly troubleshooting the set – checking fuses, measuring voltages and checking for shorts. Many of the intermittent problems such as, int.(Intermittent) no sound or picture, int. picture shrunken or misshaped. These problems are generally due to cold (bad) solder joints that break down under slight temperature changes or vibration and are usually verified by physically tapping the suspected area on the circuit board, or by quickly heating or cooling a suspected component or area ( cold spray and hot air gun). The other main culprit is leaky or dried out capacitors or capacitors that change value depending on temperature. These can sometimes be seen as bulged or leaky and have an acrid odour.
