Tv turns off and on again by itself--safe way to repair at home?

We have a Panasonic TV (Model CTK-2580S) from 1989. It turns off without warning, and often turns back on again by itself. A TV repairman said that the switch and the regulator needed repairing/replacing. Is this a job we could do ourselves? Alternately, could the panel be opened and the circuitboard switch be soldered in the closed position and then could we put in an external switch? Or would this bypass the regulator and be a dangerous thing to do?

Hello

The regulator is not involved in this problem if the regulator is the defect you cant turn on the tv, but the issue is theturns off without warning, and often turns back on again the switch is also a suspect for this problem, you know in this case we do not look for a one bad parts, maybe the Solder is cold solder, or maybe the tact switch, or some bad capacitor or change value resistor. ill re commend you to look for a qualified electronic technician to clearly diagnose for this problem...

Note.. as i read in this complaint the regulator is good and not to replace..

Angel
Thanks...

How do I safely replace the A-board on a Panasonic TC-42PX24 plasma TV? (Or, how do I confirm that the A-board is truly the problem component?)


These blinks [flashes] are fault indication (Error Codes). From the number of blinks occur at one time switch ON, you can get an idea about the faulty circuit section inside it. This will make repair easy. These are called blinking codes. Make sure about the exact number of blinking of the standby/power LED, by switching On & OFF the set, for at least two times. Count it carefully. If you wish to get some details, check the site linked here. It has details about blinking codes, and fault locating procedure, to many popular brand TVs and other devices.
http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/
If blinks continue without any pause, the main board is faulty.
Search the site by type in the "brand name" to your device, in the "Search box at the top right of the display window of the Homepage" to get gathered related posts.

We have a 50 inch panasonic plasma hd television we bought in 2007. The tv was great until 2 days after the extended warranty ran out (with Circuit City who, of course, is no longer in business anyway). ...


The main power supply regulator board fault. It will be best to replace the power board as card basis rather than trying to repair it. Because, in most cases repair work on this board will be a failure, especially to Plasma displays. If you wish to get more details visit the site linked here. It will help you to an extent, I beleve. http://electronicshelponline.blogspot.com/ Faults of many popular brand sets are given.

The TV switches it self off


Sorry to here about your TV problems but it is almost imposable to help someone with technical problems if they don't list a product, model or P/N number.
Either-way, I would try moving the unit in an area where it has more breathing space if poss-able.
Also, is the unit in a air conditioned area or in a Damp basement or Florida room ?
I would also, go on line and see if Panasonic has any call backs on this unit.
This may be a feature which can be reset without to much trouble.
Next time please list the size & model #.

TV turns off by itself & won't turn back on til unplugged, then plugged back in


Well, first your model number is the 42 inch, but I digress...

I had a similar problem with a Viewsonic 27 inch, with the blinking power light on a failed power-up. It turned out that replacing the power transformer was the ticket. However, as I have the 50 inch Panasonic plasma, I know that the transformer is built into the set itself. I'd still suggest that this is what needs replacing though, as this is different from a set being on but having no picture.

This is usually down to a safety feature cutting out the Television from harming itself. Or quite possibly a fault that make it turn itself off - it may well be thinking it's receiving the command to turn itself off. Either way, it's impossible to find out without opening it up. A professional repair is the only way, check up on your warranty. You may want to plug it into a different power source, just on the off-chance that it may solve your problem - but don't get your hopes up.

My New LCD TV just turns off


It is most likely a microprocessor issue or a power supply failure. It is easier to let them handle the repair since you have the warranty.
