Panasonic CT-32HX42F Powers down by itself

This TV is 3 years old. Over the course of the last few months it has periodically shut down by itself. Unplugging it from the wall for a few seconds would allow for some kind of discharge and then the TV would work fine for days. It has finally shut down completely and will not turn back on. Do you have any suggestions on where to look. Also, do you know where I can obtain schematics? www.samsphotofact.com no longer works. Thanks, Rickmmmmm

    Not that it turns off. However, I had it unplugged for over a week and when I tried to turn it on, it would not. It made a 'power on sound', every 7 seconds, but it would not turn on. It's only 5 years old!

    Exact same prob here, fuse popped two years ago, every once in a while had to unplug to get it to come back on. Now sounds like short when powered up, turns off and blinks internal LED.
    Fly back is open, Q551 shorted in circuit, d503 shorted in cicuit, c501 looks like it got hot.

I can answer your fuse question for you.

A 250V fuse can handle more current than a 120v fuse of the same amperage. There are a lot of factors but basically a 120V fuse rated at 5 amps will blow at 120V, 5 Amps. A 250V fuse rated at 5 Amps will blow at 120V, 7 Amps (Approx.).

A fuse is usually designed to be a catestrophic safety device. usually when the fuse blows, something else in the TV has already broken. So the fuse just stops the power from continuing to do damage to other components or to you.

250V fuses are used in place of 120V fuses in the real world a lot. I woudn't worry so much about that as I would about why it blew it in the first place.

I am experiencing a problem with it turning off immediately after I turn it on. At first I thought it was the fuse because we experienced a problem with it last year. We changed the fuse and it straightened out the problem. 
When it happened again this time, we changed the fuse and that did not help. 
What happens is we press the on button, the red indicator light comes on, we hear a high pitched sound, then the red indicator light turns off. A picture never appears. 
It is as if it is trying to turn on but gets to a point where it will not. I hate to trash it but if it is going to cost too much to fix, I may as well just get a junker TV. 
I know this is happening a lot with this model as I have researched it.
Do you know where I can find the schematic?
Also, I have a question about fuses. My husband changed the first fuse and I would hope he noticed the voltage and amperage. That information is also in the owner's manual. It indicates this model requires a 3.6 amp fuse. What I do not understand is that the TV runs off of 120 voltage but the fuse says it is a 250 voltage fuse and has worked for a year. 
How does a fuse with a 250 voltage differ from a fuse with a 120 on it? Does it mean that it will allow higher voltages to pass into the TV and that the TV is less protected from higher electrical surges if the voltage number is 250 instead of 120?
If you find the URL for the Panasonic TV model # CT 32hx42f, could you please let me know what it is and post it at this URL?

It is due to plug or socket loose or sparking in that area. if it is ok then it is due to some component failure in power supply of tv. as per schematic is concern please go to. www.serviceinfo.com go in search & give model no.it is freely available.

Panasonic 1250w genius senor inverter less then a year old. Control panel lights up, works.microwave itself does not, control panel shuts off in a few seconds


When a Panasonic Inverter Microwave shuts off after a feew seconds, it is either a bad inverter which is the quite expensive circuit board that powers the magnetron that puts out the microwave energy, or a bad magnetron, Or BOTH typically this would be a costly repair, But since it is still under warranty. You need to find a Panasonic warranty service provider in your area. If it is a counter top unit, you may have to take it to them for repair.

Cant turn off panasonic PIP


To turn off the "stuck" pip on a Panasonic tv without a remote, turn off the tv. Then hold down the "Action" button on the front of the tv and press the power button. This will activate a reset and self check of the systems and voila! The pesky pip screen will be gone! This is on an approximately 10 year old regular crt "CT-xxxxx" series tv.

My Panasonic TV


Many TVs, including some Panasonic models, have an Auto-OFF feature that will automatically turn the set off after a few minutes, if the TV thinks it is not receiving a video signal. By reinserting the coaxial cable, you are probably restarting the Auto-OFF timer inside the TV. There are several possible things that could cause the Auto-OFF to falsely activate. Try and change the coax cable going from the VCR to the TV, if you have a spare. If not, plug the cable from the cable box directly into the back of the TV. Make sure the TV is on the correct channel, usually Ch 3 or Ch 4. (Do not use the original cable that was running from the VCR to the TV, just in case it is intermittent.)

3year old Panasonic ct-32sx12f dead?


Sure, Why not? It is worth the effort. If the set is 'dead', it is the easiest to repair.Only 'tampered' sets pose problems. It could be a simple blown Fuse, or the Power Regulator IC. This should not cost you more than $100-150 as Technician charges + 15-20$ for spares. It could also be a defective Horizontal Outut Transistor and short cicuiterd FBT, (tho' it seems remote), but if yes, add another $100. definitely worth calling a professional techie
