Question about Panasonic CT-32SL14 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.
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.

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.

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.

The same problem the same solution "the fuse of course is located by the power cord "you should be able to see it from outside cord holder this is easy fix for your panasonic 32" i did remove the 10 screws total, then i blow the dust collected on my t.v. remove the fuse a glass 6.3 like everyone else but radio shak was closed at the moment so i use a string of a thin wire wrap it around one time only ,then put the old fuse back to hold wire in place ... free fix bet you all saying wow! can you really do this and yes my dear friends yes you can ...'remember ten screws pull back slowly for a lil' bit then reach by the cord pull the glass pipe fuse strip a copper wire cut one string long enough to reach both ends ,secure with the blown fuse (mexican fuse) ( (-----( () <fuse=wire> -------

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.

Add me to the success story. $2.99 for four fuses and my Panasonic 32SL14 is working great. Great site - Great help.

Thank you for this helpful tip! I found the fuse and that was the exact problem! Thank you again for saving me $80 service visit plus labor plus parts. Just to clarify it was a 63 amp fuse for Panasonic model number CT-36SL13G.
