Question about Panasonic CT-32HXC14 32" TV
There is a random arcing between the pins of the crt neck connection on my CT-32HXC14J, worse on power up , gets less as it warms up. I have isolated it to under the plastic alignment cap that fits over the end of the CRT and its pins. After carefully cutting thru the sealant that holds the plastic cap to the CRT neck and cleaning off as much of the charred and blackened sealant as possible, the arcing has gone away. I need 2 things, 1 what should I check that might have caused it to start arcing, i.e. B+ too high, bias off, loose ground etc. and 2. whats the best way to clean off the glass around the pins to reduce the chance of re arcing? should I use some corona dope coating as well? Thanks
Your problem is due to moisture in the the Crt base socket you will need to replace the white plastic crt plug I have tried to clean & dry them out but it never fully corrects problem.
As far as the pins & glass crt neck goes clean them with Isopropyl alcohol this will thoroughly clean all the carbon off.
