Question about Panasonic CT-32SL15 32" TV

1 Answer

Washed out colours and thin red lines across the screen

My six year old widescreen tv has suddenly started going strange. The colours seem very washed out and changing settings doesn't really make any change. There are also very thin reddish horizontal lines across the screen (clearest on black edges when not viewing in full wide screen mode) which are slightly higher on the right hand side. Both problems with colours and lines the same on all channels as well as when viewing DVD/VHS. Is it dying?

It sounds like your TV may need degausing.
Is your TV situated near to any loudspeakers or other devices with large magnets inside them? Or has anyone been near your TV screen with a magnet???
You need to try to get the screen demagnetised (degaussed). Many TV engineers have a degausing coil that could do this. It only takes around 20 seconds at most.
Some TV's like Mitsubishi have a DG button on the remote, that does this function without the need to call out an engineer! It only needs one press of the button every few years!

This is usually caused by bad capacitors in the vertical circuit. If you have an electronics background you should be able to find the defective ones with an ESR tester .

Tv not working

this symptom, sometimes called the tube light effect, it is characterised by a bright thin horizontal line across the middle of the screen. this symptom is caused by a breakdown in the vertical deflection circuit. hence maybe the trouble maybe in the vertical oscillator, amplifier or output circuits. but if all i have said is not clear to you, better bring it to a qualified tv technician. good luck!

Blue tint and lines on screen.

Those lines sound like "retrace lines" and several things can cause them. The most common are shorts inside the picture tube and shorted semiconductors in the video driver circuits. They can also be seen if the blue screen voltage is too high or if someone has tampered with the screen voltage control.
