Question about Panasonic CT-27SL13 27" TV

1 Answer

Power Problem I was watching my TV and suddenly it went black. When I turn it on I hear a click but the screen stays off. There was no evidence of a power surge, or anything like that? Does anyone know what's wrong? Is it worth going to a professional?

Can you hear any slight ticking noise following he click? It's one of two probabilities, either the HOT or the FBT - - The horizontal output transistor in that unit is a common failure. It uses a 2sc5902, which you can sub to a 2sd2539 or an NTE2353, either will work as well if not better than the original. And it only takes a shop a very short time to do a continuity test acress the E&B (emitter and base pins) on the HOT to determine if it's shorted.
When the HOT shorts the shutdown circuit will pulse, causing a very faint ticking sound, cycling in it's attempt to power the unit.
If you're going to have a shop do call around and ask what they charge to replace the HOT like you know what you're doing...
Let me know how it turns out..

No picture on intermittent basis -

If you have tried using different input devices, looked for loose contacts
in power outlet, RC Jack, cable and connectors, the TV might need service.

Sound but no vision, black screen

It's either the backlight lamp or backlight inverter is busted due to a power failure or fluctuation. Here's how to determine which is which:
  1. Grab a flashlight.
  2. Turn on the TV.
  3. Shine the flashlight onto the screen.
  4. If you cannot see any display even a faint one, the backlight inverter is dead, else the backlight lamps are busted.
  5. Replace which ever is the culprit.

Plasma Hyundai 42'' TV ,NO SOUND OR PICTURE

most times then not it's the capacitors on your power board that blew there for not supplying the tv with enough power if you open it up and check the capacitors it should be leaking some kind of liquid or the tops have bubbled up. its an easy fix cost>>2 dollars each

Tv goes black and the green light stays on and the sound also works

Try Shining a bright light at the screen. can you see any images on the screen? If you can, then the backlight on the tv has gone, and can be replaced. If you cant then it may be a fault with the inverror (power) board on the TV
