Panasonic CT-36G24A Horazontal Hold

I have a Panasonic Model CT-36G24A Chassis No. AP332. The horizontal hold is not working properly. Sometimes when the set is turned on the horizontal is ok and sometimes it is compressed down to 3 inches. When the front panel is tapped it corrects itself. It holds sometime and sometimes not.Does anyone have a idea what the cause is? A cold solder joint , a dirty pot etc. And if possible the location of the suspect.

Re: Panasonic CT-36G24A Horazontal Hold

  • your problem is in the vertical output section as you have already mentioned that compressed down to 3 inch
  • if is is some times then you will have to check
  • loose contact in electrolytic capacitor in vertical output section
  •  it will be dry or some print cut must be solder it.
  • it is best thing to replace all electrolytic capacitors in vertical output stage.they are hardly two or three.
  • it is a common failure,& not a major problem.
  • as per location of the suspect is concern it in the section from where the wires are going to crt neck.
  • hope this will help
  • good luck

Panasonic color TV model CT-32G9J won't turn on.

been a long time since fixed an crt tv. but if you have a stand by light the problem on this model is the control chip if remember right it sits on the left side near to the front. think its an 8 pin chip. these just go and it will not turn on. these chips are easy to get hold of and are cheap. you just need to remove it and replace with a new one. and the tv will work again. its not on the power board but is controlling the power start up. if there is no stand by light its a longer problem to solve. it could be a number of problems. would need to know if any problems happened before the tv did not turn on.

Tv vertical

It sonds like bad solder connections on the vertical IC.IF you remove the back flip up the p.c.board and inspect it you should be able to locate the problem resolder it and save repair cost.Becareful of wires and plugs if you have to mark them.

Panasonic CT-32G6E Intermittent single horizontal line

I would suggest to locate a part that looks like the one on this link and re solder all the pins, also check for any high power resistor nearby the IC295890 and put some fresh solder.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

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.

Vertical hold

If the picture is in an hourglass shape this has nothing to do with vertical hold. Besides, on all these sets, the hold and parameters are all uPC controled through a firmware routine that is burned in to an EPROM.

It is obvious that there is a failed component somewhere because of the hour glass shape. The area of failure is most likely in the pin amp section. If the hourglass is from the sides, it would be horizontal pin. If it is top and bottom, the fault is in the vertical pin section.

A common cause is from a capacitor that has failed in the mentioned area. Sometimes it can be an IC or other type of component in the pin amp area, but not as often as failed capacitors.

You can take the set in to service the fault. I don't think you can fix this yourself unless you are trained in TV service and have the experience and setup to troubleshoot for the bad parts, and do this type of service.

Panasonic CT-32D11 TV

Your vertical output IC has stopped working. This is usually caused by the solder joints cracking loose and the IC will either short out inside or just stop working. Sometimes a small capacitor next to the IC, called the pump-up cap, will go bad and cause the IC to fail. In any case, the vertical output IC should be resoldered or replaced and all circuits checked by someone experienced in repairing TV's.

Buzzing sound, no picture on my Panasonic TV

You might have a short causing the set not to start. Probably in the horizontal/high voltage circuit. The buzzing sound that you're hearing is the power supply overloaded. Stargazer

Picture bounce

I think that maybe your horizontal hold is messed up. If there is anyway you can change it with a button or dial or something on the TV that would do it but if there isn't one then there is nothing you can do but to take it to a repairman but it is really expensive. You'll probably spend more on fixing it than you for the TV itself.You're better of to get a new television.
