Question about Televison & Video

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

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.

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.

Sounds like you dlp lamp is going out. That's a pretty old TV and if you are still running on the stock lamp this is exactly the type of thing that will happen. The lamp model for this particular tv is the ty-la1001. You can find that over here:

TV screen goes blank but power stays on

Sounds like the CRTs are going into protective blanking due to the vertical output ic needing to be resolderd. Try resoldering the vertical IC that may possibly fix the issue.

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
