Question about Panasonic Televison & Video
We have a Panasonic Viera plasma tv with seperate set top box, only about 12 months old. Recently the picture and sound have become increasingly distorted. The picture has squares of distortion and the sound is quite 'electronic' sounding. It started a little bit across the bottom of the screen and is moving up with more distortion in the sound. We have no problems with watching DVDs or pay tv, it is just the free to air channels. I hve tried reinstalling the channels thru the set top box (Topfield TF4000T) but it did not help. I have checked the cables to see if they are loose, but all appear okay.

Try to reset the TV to factory defaults and see if that helps. Record your color settings and any other setting your have in your config before dong this because all will be lost.

Zdenko did an excellent job. Voltage regulators and
the capacitors on the main boards and in the power supplies are always
Some times you can narrow down the culprit buy purchasing a can of
freeze spray. Let the TV warm up and try freezing suspect components to
see if this causes a reaction. Thermal problems can often be found in
Of course, if you're not able or willing to replace components on the circuit boards, you can always replace the main board or power supply board after determining which is causing the problem. These parts should be available at your local Viewsonic service provider at a reasonable price.

The aspect ratio (zoom) button on the cable remote had been changed. On Brighthouse the # button toggles through the zoom settings. It's not a tv issue, it's a cable fix.

Sounds like a bad video board. No easy way to fix a bad video board. It needs to be replaced. That is why the repair shops will not fix it; they do not stock video boards for all models. And it is a pain to track one down all of a sudden. Once a warranty is up, you are running on bonus time. Electrical components have a definite lifespan. It is possible to recover some money by selling it "as-is" online somewhere. You could get 200-400 for it broken, pretty easy I suppose.
