Question about Panasonic PT-47WXC43 47" Rear Projection Television

1 Answer

Screen goes black and turns off

My mother's tv is hooked up to a cable box. At random times, the tv will turn off and go to a black screen - cable box is still on. When this happens the red power light will blink on and off every few seconds. Unplugging the tv from the wall and turning on the tv with the power button will turn on set again and it work fine for a while then the pattern repeats. Marvin

Letters appearing on screen

Turn off captions (if not on the TV, on your cable or satellite receiver), because that's what's going on. TV or whatever tunes it are most likely providing bad or corrupted caption data, and that's an attempt to decode it. Turning off captions should eliminate the issue (unless you need captions, in which case you should try to improve the quality of the signal into your TV, which is beyond the scope of this particular question).

Can't get rid of black box

You have your TV in the "Teletext" mode. Go into the TV menu and select the closed-captioning menu and turn off the text function. What you are seeing is the result of the TV's captioning circuit latching onto a false text pilot signal and then throwing up the black box on the screen.

TV turns on, but no sound or picture from any of the inputs

I don't know if I had any lightning, but it is possible because my DVR/Cable box was operating on limited capacity right before this started. I unplugged everything to reset the DVC/Cable box, and when I turned the tv on, I got real tv sound for a few seconds and then a "no signal" message in the center of the screen. This happens every time I turn it on. It is not the DVR/Cable box because I hooked it up to another tv and it works fine. It's not a bulb because I would still get this other person, none of my inputs will pick up the cable. I really don't want to just have a random service person in here to charge me to figure it out if someone can lead me down the right path to getting it fixed. Please help, I love this tv and don't want to replace it. LH

Large Black Box Showing up in middle of screen.

When a black box appears on the screen it means that your closed captions are on and set to TEXT. When the closed captions are set to CC1, it puts the words on the screen and when set to TEXT it puts a black box in the center of the screen. Go into the set's menu, navigate to the closed captions page and set the captions to OFF.

While watching tv, the tv all sudden goes snowy, no sound, and have to turn it off and back on to make it work again

Connect up another set right next to that set thats going out to make sure the cable or that line is not bad. It soukds as though you may have an intermittant tuner assembly inside the TV set. Its also a possablity that there could be a bad solder connectiuon in or around the tuner assembley. Not really a job for the user, as this set has hot and cold chassis, and can give a mean shock if you do not have the know how to work on these monsters. good Luck PS Please do not forget to rate this thread.
