Question about Panasonic TH Televison & Video

Random Side Panel Inputs

I have a Panasonic TV with a panel on the side that controls the volume and picture and sound properties (contrast, brightness, colour etc.) among other things. Recently, the TV started taking random inputs from that panel at completely random times. When it happens, any signals from the remote control are received but no longer have any affect on the television. Do you have any idea which board controls the inputs from the side panels? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

    Hi Shaun, thanks for the reply! Yeah, I thought it might be a main board problem... :(. I'm planning on taking the back off and having a look when I get the chance. I'll have a look for the firmware update as well. Thanks again!

You either have a bad Main board or simply a bad touch control button in other word one of your side buttons is defective and it is blocking any other signal to the main board, but usually its a bad main board. In some cases ther is a FIRMWARE update from Panasonic, you may want to call Panasonic or check there website for any type of FIRMWArE UPDATE.

SOURCE: Panasonic Plasma no sound, can't change channel

Yes the control board would definitely be the offender here. But a word of caution. Oftenj when this board goes 2 other boards are also compromised and not always obvious at the time people think they can just swap the board out.
It went for a reason, not just old age. So it is better and cheaper in the long run to get a professional to check it out.

Also from a safety aspect, this is the High Tension area of the TV. Also be aware that radiation of the X type is in abundance at the rear of the tube. The TV must be grounded when opening ( but my advice is dont!) Let the professional do it

SOURCE: TV does not respond to

When this kind of a problem appears it is usually due to a malfunctioning microprocessor IC . The IC cannot be replaced and the board has to be replaced as a whole. Replacement board should run you about 100$. I can find you a replacement if you are interested in fixing it.

SOURCE: I have a Mitsubishi WD-60737.

Hello lily liver,
The problem with the television not being able to receive signal from the remote seems not to be too strange a problem as these devices can come up with mind bursting problems.
The problem with the television simply is from the sensor of the television. There is a metal that holds the televisions sensor so as for it to be able to receive signal from the remote. The metals could be rusty and break off the position where it is meant to be and would be having partial contact on the main board of the television.
The entire control panel is also linked to this sensor board, that is why it acts funny once in a while. The best thing to do is to have the control panel on the television replaced as well as the sensor light on the television. It is no longer receiving signal properly from the remote.
Resetting the television could last only for a period of time, therefore, the lasting solution to the problem is simply for you to have the control panel of the television replaced as well as the remote sensor that is in the television.
The solution to the problem is simply for you to replace the control board and the sensor of the television. That would solve the problem for you.
Hope this information was helpful in solving the problem. All the best Elect_Comp

SOURCE: the volume stuck on max volume and will not respond to remorol or side panels

Some buttons on remote or on control panel is stuck. Look for it and try releasing them. Remove batteries from Remote and try adjustment from control panel. If problem persists, it might need attention by a qualified service technician.

3. Check the setting of the picture brightness or contrast.

4. Check to ensure you have proper cable connections from your source going into your TV.

5. Check the volume settings on the TV.

6. Check to ensure the mute button is not pressed on.

Original remote lost. have universal remote. cannot program TV


On the right hand side of this television there are panel buttons. It appears that your son in law knocked the tv out of the correct input. Press the input button in order to cycle through the 5 inputs. Typically pressing the input button on the side panel of a television and pressing it again and again and again will make it change inputs. Universally the buttons on the tv panel function as follows: Channel up moves the cursor up. Channel down moves the cursor down. Volume + moves the cursor right. Volume - moves the cursor left.
Hope this helps

Front panel buttons on Philips rear projection do random things


Leaky tact switches on control panel. Part number is 242212802742. Takes 6. They will cost you around 6.00 a piece. Lower front panel pulls off. Be careful as there are two cables attached to htis panel. This should take care of your issues.

TV ranking


Hi. You could look up reviews. I personally usually never offer advice on choices, because what I like, may not be what you like..its a matter of personal preference. But in this particular case, I'd go for Panasonic. Why? Better features, better service, easier availability of parts, and better resolution.Plus some nice features. If this answers your question, PLEASE don't forget to rate as fixed. I'd really appreciate it. Enjoy your new tube!!!

Audio cuts out


HDMI is not a universal standard. Some units will not talk back and forth correctly and can cause lock ups, loss of audio or loss of picture. Try switching to component inputs and see if it works better. Check your owners manual but I believe the component inputs will also accept 1080P as long as the Panasonic Blu Ray can output 1080P. Don't believe what the Salesman said if he told you that you have to use HDMI or you won't get HD.
