TV quits after a few minutes-get a blue screen, no picture and no audio

The tv works fine for up to five minutes, then there is some hash on the screen and just get a blue screen and no audio. There is a faint smell like something is getting hot just before it quits. However, the VCR will play fine, picture and audio, after this happens to the TV.

Re: TV quits after a few minutes-get a blue screen, no...

My best recommendation is to pull the back off it and blow the dust out. Dust is electrostatically attraced to the components inside and acts like a blanket. This causes overheating. Remember to leave your tv unplugged for at least an hour before taking the back off as the CRT (picture tube) will store a charge which can kill you.

Blue tv screen

A blue screen only with no indications of video means, there is no video signal. That is no signal condition. Check the tV connected with an external antenna. Select to tuner, and see whether it receives any on air transmission. If it recevies, and you can see the picture, and the fault is with VCR only,m means that the VCR section has trouble. If there is no picture either with VCR or external antenna, the fault is with the switching IC iside the circuit board. To locate this IC and to repalce it is actually a skilled work indeed. If you have sound knoledge in electronics, you can do it by yourself. If you have, inform me. I'll send the schematic diagram [service manual] to your TV. I can't send it to you by this site, as this window does not allow me to upload PDF fies by it. If you want to get the service manual, send your Email ID to me by Fixya. I'll send a copy of it to you by return mail. OK.

17 yr. old 35" RCA loses color intermittently. Picture & sound ok

Three guns Red Blue and Green in the picture tube of an old CRT set. If one of the guns goes out it effects that color. Sounds like one of the guns inside of the tube is going out, To costly to replace for such an old antilog set that will have to have a convertor box next month anyway.

Blue Rectangle

Try disconnecting the TV from the power outlet and leave OFF for a couple of minutes.
If that did not work, try pressing the "DEMO" button on the remote or the front panel if you have one, or you may want to go into menu and look for something that says "demo"
Good Luck.

Blank Screen.

Wow, thats quite a unique symptom. Usually on the Panasonics, when the screen goes blank it is because the vertical output IC has cracked solder joints, but in that case you will not see the channel numbers displayed on the screen. If you have good audio but see absolutely no picture but you do get channel numbers on the screen then there is a problem in the video circuits. The fact that you say it happens occasionally suggests that a solder joint has cracked loose somewhere in those video circuits and that should be an easy repair that should not cost too much money, so it is fixable and I would not toss the TV yet.

No display with DVD, VCR, or tuner

It sounds to me without knowing the model or type unit that you may need to unplug tv AND take batteries out of remote for a few seconds, replug and start over. Hope it helps
