Question about Panasonic CT-32SL14 32" TV

Panasonic CT-32sl 13 32" TV

One day it here recently, it would not turn on. I never had any issues from the set and one day nothing. It does even sound like it wants to turn on. So, I tried the oldest electronic trick. Unplug it for a while and try it again, still nothing.

  • Anonymous Jan 13, 2008

    I have the exact same issue on my Panasonic CT-32SL14J. The local repairman said it would be about $100 to fix. Where is the fuse located? Can I do it myself?

    Hi:

    The power on my 10-12 year old Panasonic 32" color TV doesn't turn on with the Remote or otherwise... any suggestions to repair it cheap. Could it be power supply / transformer problem... can I fix it myself? I hate carrying it to a repair shop (it's heavy) just to find out that it'll cost a bundle which may not be worth it.

    I'm having the same issue I think... My TV won't power on at all and I can't seem to find the fuse. I have been in both sides of the TV and can not locate it. any hints as to where it might be? This is my first time in the back of a TV, computers are more my thing but I really want to get it fixed with out spending 150 bucks or just buying a new tv.


    Thanks

    I'm convinced that I need to replace the fuse on my TV so I removed all the screws and the bottom pops out fine but the top does not want to pop out. Do I need to have the TV at a certain angle to get the back to come off? Any advice would be greatly appreciated.



  • aparrack05 Apr 14, 2009

    We have had the same problem with our tv. We replaced the fuse with a 6.3 Amp 250 Volt fuse just like other users have suggested. Now we have ppower on the tv, but the picture is dark. Is this caused by the 250 volts? Do I need a 125 volt for it to work properly? Or are we simply out of a tv? There are no service repair places where I live and we cannot afford a new tv. Any help is greatly appreciated. Thank you and God Bless!!!

This sight rocks! And so do the people that posted information! Went to Radio Shack and got the 6.3amp 250 volt fuse. Fuse was easy to get to once I removed all of the screws and easily slid off the back. $2.99 fix (foe the fuses)

I too had the same problem with suddenly no power to my Ct32sl214.
I read the solutions and wanted to commend Terryfic, whose solution worked.
" Check AC fuse ... if bad 6.3 amp...replace with slo-blo..T-type
6.3 amp.....original is fast-blo"
The TV weighs 160 lbs, but car is not large enough to bring TV to repair shop which would usually run $39.00 just to drop it off. My tv repair shop wanted to charge $125 bucks just to come out for the housecall.
I located the fuse right near where the power chord connects to the circuit board and removed it with ease. You can see the fuse when your unscrew and remove the small chord bracket on the rear of the set and peer down with a flashlight, but you need take the back off the TV to access the fuse.
I then went to the same repair shop who didn't have the replacement fuse, but referred me the radio shack up the road who did.
I only had to shell out $2.99 for four replacement fuses, saving at least $120.00 for a house call.
Thank You

Solution: My Panasonic 32inch flatscreen TV had the same problem described by others. I hit the on button, heard a "pop" and it simply would not work.

I went to Radio shack and they have a 6.3A 250v slow blow fuse. I did not even know what a fuse looked like . . but once I got the part, it was simple. Took off the 8 screws on the back of the set, and popped out the old fuse. my original fuse was a 6.3 amo , 125 volt version, but so long as your new fuse is rated equal to or above the voltage amount, you are fine.

Unbelievable, I have never repaired a TV in my life and this saved me $500 since I would have replaced the TV with something new.

This was very helpful. We also have the Panasonic Model CT-32SL14J and it just quit on us. No power, no picture, no nothing. I looked up this site and my husband and I did as suggested. He removed 9 screws on the back and we removed the back of the TV and (facing the back of the TV, on the lower right hand side), there was the fuse. Went to Radio Shack and bought one package of 6.3 amp 250 volt slow blo fuse (there were 4 fuses in the package) and the package was $3.00.

We replaced the new fuse and lo and behold, problem was fixed.

I had called a television repair place a couple of days earlier and they had quoted me $145 just to come out to look at the tv.

Thanks so much to FixYa!!!

Me too. Panasonic CT-32 won't power up one day (two days before the 2010 super bowl). After removing the cover, I can see through the opening where the power cord goes in. BUT, I can't see where the fuse is to replace it. I see the mother board and transistors, some are blue.

I'll drop the big bad boy on the floor screen down and take the back off to get to the fuse if I have to. Where or where is that fuse?
Please help. Is there a link to a schematic?

It the fuse glass? Or the plastic type with two plugs sticking down? What color is it? Thanks for the help.

    In case folks are looking for it, the fuse is right next to where the power cord attaches. Do an image search for 6.3A 125v fuse and you'll know what to look for.

I had the exact same problem with this TV. So I googled the model #CT-36SL13G to see if the TV was worth anything. I was hoping I could get someone to get it out of my house for free becase it is a big heavy elephant. Instead I found this page, went to went to Radio Shack, got the fuse, replaced it, and it works perfect!

I do want to add a couple of comments. The fuse is a little tricky to find if you do not remove the panel completely. Be aware that there are the screws that go around the edge of the panel. BUT, then there are 2 or 3 screws that are around the RCA jacks. You need to remove these screws so that you can remove the cover without pulling the circuit board out. Once you do that, the fuse is right there near the power cord. Also a WARNING: I am not a TV expert but I believe they still have capacitors wich means you can get zapped pretty bad even with the TV unplugged. SO, try not to touch anything other than the fuse.

Thanks to all of you who posted this info.

    yeah you can do this yourself. take the back of the tv off and if I remember correctly its on the right corner of the board, just make sure the tv is unplugged and don't touch anything else. Its a tube fuse very easy to find

There was a typo- that was a 6 point 3 (6.3) amp fuse- the fuse is not quite large enough for the start up of the the tv - I suggest either a 7 or 8 amp standard fuse or a 6.3 amp slow blow fuse- the slow blow series will be white ceramic instead of glass.

Posted on Mar 07, 2010

  • Bill May 23, 2010

    The fuse can be ordered from mouser electronics www.mouser.com or 800-346-6873 part number is

    576-021806.3HXP this is 6.3 (6 point 3) amps. If it lasts some time & re-blows (mine lasted 9 months) you may want to step up one size to 8 amps 576-0218008.HXP. these are 5mm x 20mm glass cartrige fuses- slo-blow. they run 61 cents for the 6.3 and 94 cents for the 8 amp - plus around $7 shipping.

Where Is The Fuse Located In A Panasonic CT-32SL-23G ?


You will need to remove the back of the TV. Don't worry, it's not that bad.

There are 4 screws across the top, one on each side on the bottom toward the front, one right next to where the power cord goes into the back of the case, and the two more by all of the video connections **These are the most important to remove because they attach the main board to the back of the case.

Once you have remove the screws then the entire back of the set will slide off. If you look where the power cord attaches to the board you will see a small fuse. This is a 6.3 Amp 125 volt fuse. You can replace it with a 6.3 Amp 250 volt fuse from your local Radio Shack. A four pack costs between $3 and $5.

Make sure that you check that it works before putting it all back together. Check for any loose connection cables while you're back there. I found a few when I did this.

Good luck!

Tv will not turn on


This set has a common problem with th main fuse opening for no other apparent reason... One of the few exceptions to my corner-stone statement that a fuse is never the cause only a symptom..
Don't replace it though with the same type grade, use a 6.3a slo-blow gma type - available at Radio Shack... Try that and if everything works you're back in business.. If not we nee to find a cause...
