Re: Picture suddenly went dark

Hi, Apparently you have a possible component failure with your Panasonic PVQ-2510. This would involve the circuitry at the back/neck of the picture tube. Diagnosis would require familiarity with discreet components, use of a VOM, soldering and general component knowledge. In as much as it is possible that your red drive transistor (or an IC) would require replacement or resoldering, your best bet is to seek the services of a qualified professional. Should you venture to do a do-it-yourself, pls post back. Good luck and kind regards.

Picture is really dark. I can see outlines of picture, but no color. I turned up brightness all the way.

Hi, Did the TV go darker gradually or did it happen all of a sudden? Sounds like the tube went!
You Can do a test or two?

Tv on/off and volumn don't work on my dish remote


If you are trying to use a Dish Network remote control, then you are probably out of luck. Most Dish remotes do not have remote codes for TV/DVD or TV/VCR combos. There are just too many codes out there to put into one remote control. I'm sure they tried to walk you through a code search (hold the TV button down, etc.), so if it didn't show up then, then you are probably stuck with using two remotes or adjusting manually.

If they didn't try a code search, then try this:

Turn the TV on manually. Then, press and hold the clear TV button at the top until all the buttons at the top turn red, then release. Press and release the TV power button (the smaller red power button), and press the channel up button. Repeatedly press and release the channel up button about once a second until the TV turns off by itself, then press and release the # button at the bottom right hand corner of the remote, and the TV button will flash 3 times, confirming that it took the code. Press and release the clear SAT button at the top left, and then you should be good to go.
If the TV never turns off during the code search, and the TV button at the top of the remote flashes a bunch of times everytime you press channel up, then there are no more remote codes. The remote does not have the code for your TV.

Hope this helps you.

Adjusting darkness

Hi Angel,
Are you really sure , your set has video? How dark is it ? As if really nothing visible? Am, sure you can hear sounds. You can adjust the brightness + button to increase the brightness. But if nothing happens , you have problem with your TV set. The problem might be in the Video section. Please let an expert technician to check it. Please don't do it by yourself, it's risky.
Please send feedback whatever comes up. So we can help you further in the future.

If you promise not to touch the wrong thing, you can adjust the screen and focus knobs on the high-voltage transformer (what we call the flyback). Do you see the big red wire going to the CRT tube? That is the anode lead of the high voltage (around 25,000 volts). The thing that it goes to on the circuit board has 2 little knobs coming out the back of it. Try adjusting those (use a tool with insulated handle if you please) to increase the brightness and improve the focus. When the screen adjustment is all the way up and it is still too dark - then its time for a new TV.

You or someone may have press record and the set is in record mode. that way whatever time it's set for it will come on. Or you have to unplug to reset. Leave off for atleast 1hour then plug back in.
