Question about Standard (CRT) Televisions

1 Answer

Panasonic TV model CT-27G7DR

1. The TV screen is fine until it warms up. 2. After a minute or so, the screen goes blank or there is a thin picture line that goes across the middle of the screen. 3. The screen will pop up occasionally after vibrations or pounding on it. 4. I thought it was the antenna connection in the back of the T.V. Wiggling it tends to make the screen come back for a while. 5. I wiggled the back of this too many times. It is now broken, but I can put it back with glue, but it still continues to black out. 6. I have tried taking the T.V. apart & blowing it out with compressed air. This seemed to help for a day or 2. The problem kept coming back. 7. It seems like there is a loose connection. 8. I do not want to buy a new T.V., due to the digital signal becoming standard in the next few years, but I also do not want to spend a lot of money on a repair. Any suggestions, Ginty

Re: Panasonic TV model CT-27G7DR

Hi, Very often, the vertical IC is the culprit. What happens is due to excessive heat, the solder joints of the IC's pins gets undone. More often than not, re-applying heat through a soldering iron would solve the problem. It may also be a wise move to re-solder surrounding components and to check for any loose connections. Pls be reminded of safety precautions when working inside a TV unit. Hope this be of help. Post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards.

When you turn the tv on it goes to the settings screen and you can't get a picture for about 20 minutes until it warms up

Fist is contact Philips to see if this (with the model number) is a known issue or if there is a software upgrade available for this set.

Panasonic 32" GAOO just atarted doing this...Turn

The Panasonic Gaoo sets were top of the line in it's day, the problem you are describing is a vertical deflection issue caused by bad solder joints and a few parts. I recommend a tv technician to fix the set.

Hourglass picture. Panasonic CT-35G30T The picture is hour glassing from the sides. Starts to flicker back to normal after 1 to 2 hours. Getting progressively worse. Takes longer time to reach normal...

This is caused by bad solder connections in what's called the pincushion correction circuit. Some of the transistors get quite hot, and over time the solder connections to the TV circuit board become intermittent. When you tap the set, it causes them to make contact again so the picture is normal, but then it goes funny again. Resoldering the connections would take care of this problem. I would suggest calling a professional in to make the repair, which would cost far less than a replacement TV.

Hope this has been helpful, and thanks for using Fixya!

Panasonic CT-27L8SG displays gray screen and white hoizontal line

Is it still under warranty?
If not I would find a good TV Service Shop and have them check out the power supply as there more than likely a 'Capacitor' much like a battery that is going bad.

The TV turns on and you can hear the sound but the picture is dark except for a thin line of blue dots in the center of the screen.

You have whats known in the biz as a cold solder connection on the vertical output IC or on the associated components. Not a job for the handi-man unless you know the issues with safty, and precautions to take with Hi voltage inside of tv sets. Shouldnrt cost much for the local shop to find your problem . Now on rare occations the poor connections are inside the IC and the IC has to be replaced. Good Luck
