Unknown model of panasonic tv problem with picture

Hi i have been having a problem with the tv .... it has been flickering quite fast but only slightly, then all of a sudden after turning the tv off (trying to sort out the flickering) then back on again there was no picture until about ten seconds later. The picture was a dark red and sort of smudged with faint horizontal lines about an inch apart. Any solutions? My partner said it should be thrown away she right?

Re: unknown model of panasonic tv problem with picture

Depending on age, it sounds as if picture tube has an intermintent short in the red gun. tap on the center of the screen to see if it goes away, if it does,I would strongly say that the tube is gone; but you could try openning it and check if the crt board is mounted on the tube's neck properly. do this at your own risk since you might get a shock if not familiar on how to handle tv's.

My TV picture begins flickering with a bunch horizontal lines across the screen, then the pictures comes back and is fine for a while and then it happens again. We ruled out the DVR box and cable...

You have a vertical IC that is in need of resoldering. And you can bet you have a few weak capacitors very close to this IC that need replaced. And while you are at it, check for a high voltage cap that may be weak in the horizontal section. This would be the next step in saving this TV. If you or a hobbiest can pull this board you could probably do the repair. Use extra caution when you do this. Or best yet find a TV Tech!

Hourglass picture. Panasonic CT-35G30T The picture is hour glassing from the sides. Starts to flicker back to normal after 1 to 2 hours. Getting progressively worse. Takes longer time to reach normal...

This is caused by bad solder connections in what's called the pincushion correction circuit. Some of the transistors get quite hot, and over time the solder connections to the TV circuit board become intermittent. When you tap the set, it causes them to make contact again so the picture is normal, but then it goes funny again. Resoldering the connections would take care of this problem. I would suggest calling a professional in to make the repair, which would cost far less than a replacement TV.

Hope this has been helpful, and thanks for using Fixya!

How to unblock v chip in panasonic panasonic CT 27SL15 TV

Push the power button and the action button on the tv set until it shuts itself off and this will reset your tv. You cannot use the remote to reset...must use the actual tv buttons on the television set.

My experiance is to not put money into a TV that is over ten years old. TVs stress out their electronic components worse than almost any other electronic product. After 10 years, there are so many parts that are ready to fail that your are probably wasting your money trying to get any more life out of it.
Another option is to wholesale replace the main board by sending it to Module Exchange at 972-298-1212, or PTS Electronics 800-844-7871
Be careful on buying a new one though. Often times, these new technology ones are much worse. Always Google the model number of the set you intend to buy and add the word 'repair' or 'complaint' to see if it is one of the many models that are customer service nightmares being produced by even the most reputable companies today.
Hope ya fix it!
