Panasonic CT-20SX12D 20" TV with Tau PureFlat Screen

My tv won't turn on manually or by remote. I had the 3 year extended warranty but it expired 12 days past the warranty. I never had any problems until 2 days ago. What can I do? What is wrong? Can I get parts?

electrical outlet is working

    yes




    it may look like a fuse like in a car charger for a cell phone,.about an inch long [.all tv's maybe different] pull it out. it's wedged between 2 prongs.look thru it in the light, and see if the stem inside is broken. if it is, then it's blown.caution some fuses maybe soldered to the prongs. use a flashlight to see thru it. there should be a amp size on the side.

    let me know how it goes

The tv started turning on and off on its own. It's been doing it now for about 12 hours. We've only had this tv for about 3 weeks.


This sounds exactly like what I've told two other members about--a major issue in so many Samsung TV's that Samsung is still paying to have them repaired years after even extended warranties are expiring.
It's a power capacitor--unplug it ASAP for sure, because, as I'm sure we're all aware, TVs aren't made to turn on-and-off again, so when they start doing it on their own, the problem gets progressively worse until the problematic part just 'breaks'.
This applies with this problem, which I've seen on this forum reported in Samsung TVs (which I was aware of already), as well as LGs, and now your Sanyo. Wow--you'd think that TV manufacturers would be making enough $$ to get 'progressively better and better' with each unit sold, but it seems the opposite is happening right now, with newer big-screens. Tonight I've seen LCDs, LEDs, and even Plasma owners reporting this identical problem.
So, take it back, ASAP, too--I can't think of any retail seller where the warranty would have expired by now, and sometimes it's also true that standard 1-year manufacturer's warranties actually revert back to the manufacturer after only 1-month--which means you have maybe a week to get yours back into the tender-loving arms of the salesman who sold it to you, too, before you'd otherwise be paying potential shipping costs to get it to the manufacturer's centralized repair center (somewhere in the States, too, we hope).
Sorry this free advice couldn't be any better--maybe Googling some other TV makes and models for the online reviews would assist in avoiding this issue in the future--I find myself doing it all the time, for every electronics purchase over $10, these days.

I have 36" Panasonic CT-36SX12 TAU series. I had it repaired less than 3 years ago .and the same problem happened again As soon as turned the TV off it wouldn't turn back on .I was told this was the...


I would check the remote control by taking it out of the room first. If that is not the problem, it is likely to be a dry joint in the power supply that is "arcing" and causing this problem.
Re soldering the heavy components on the power supply board may fix it.

Screen goes blank intermittently on 60in Sony Bravia KDS-60A3000


I am having the same problem with my Sony. I bought it at Circuit City in November 2007 and the extended warranty, which I thought was for 4 years, has expired. Has anyone else had this problem, and how did you resolve it?

Panasonic CT-27SL15 has scan lines on top 4 inches of screen, what is problem and how to fix?


Nov 2011 - Comment
Have similar problem on a Panasonic Tau model CT-27SL15.
It's a 27" CRT TV manufactured around 2005.

Other posts / solutions on this problem say possibly a capacitor going bad in the vertical circuitry / near the vertical IC / vertical blanking circuitry. Telephone call to a TV repair person mentioned something similar - "possibly a bad capacitor in the vertical circuitry".
Found a service manual online w/schematics and board layouts.
Panasonic Service Manual
http://dl.dropbox.com/u/35219914/PANASONIC%20CT27SL15.pdf
See pg 25 (of 42) - Deflection Schematic Diagram (Main PCB)
Shows: V Output IC - IC401
Finding the actual bad component(s) may not be so easy.
Anyway ... just wanted to add this comment.

Same problem


It sounds like the classic "timer problem" that requires a "kit" (mostly capacitors) to repair it. To have someone do it (such as your service person) for you can be expensive and time consuming. Sets that are 5 or more years old usually have other problems too which, simply put, is a complete cleaning of all mirrors, fans, and filters.

Sony kdl-46xbr4 Black Horizontal Bands When I First Turn on TV


I had the exact same problem with the Sony KDL46XBR4. The problem started 11 months after I purchased the TV (Dec 2007). Luckily I placed the call to Sony just before the 1 year warranty expired and they replaced the entire front panel which is basically the whole TV except for the stand and the plastic frame. Last month the same issue started happening again (5 months since the repair). I called Sony and they say they have a 90 day warranty on the replacement part so I would need to pay out of my own pocket to first have the problem diagnosed (it's the EXACT same problem!) and then pay to have the repair done since the warranty has expired. I asked how much the front panel costs and it's $1,400! I paid $2,100 for the TV when I purchased it. Interestingly, at the time that part was back-ordered.....hmmmm, I wonder why??? Perhaps a recall is warranted here (no pun intended). Needless to say, I have sworn off Sony products due to their lack of support for this issue.

Beverage air single door freezer compressor


OH well that's a real easy question to answer.

All the compressor manufacturers have a 1 year replacement warranty (just on the compressor). Any labor freight and mils like driers, freon, cleaner ... items are not covered.
Now you may be able to purchase an extended warranty for up to 5 years total. Some contractors offer their own warranty for extension. But ask yourself how much is it really worth to have ? Extended warranties are an additional cost and is not under the manufacturers warranty. So for the 1st year its the manufacturer anyway and on some manufacturers (Copeland) it is limited to 3 compressors total within the 12 months. So an extended may also be limited withn the 5 years.

And if your loosing compressors from 2 different causes, 1 electrical and 1 mechanical. And if the initial problems were inerrant in the compressors individually, the likely occurrence in the next 5 years is really remote in my opinion. Assuming the coil is kept clean and grease and paper is not allowed to block the condenser air and the defrost doesn't go haywire, and the electrical to the unit is kept within specifications and the replacement compressor was given a new drier clean refrigerant and maybe some acid cleaner.. But to me $700.00 for a whole job on a fractional compressor sounds really, pardon, cheep.


The reason is that if you hve more than 3 failures something else is causing them besides the compressors. (And I contend to agree). I have only had 1 compressor job that kept failing year after year. And the incompient rebuilder (Owens Hermetic OKC) kept rebuilding the same compressor body except for the 3rd time I talked the owner into getting a remanufactured one and that was because I took the old one apart and found the cylender walls scored and therefore the piston and rings were not sealing. And every winter the refrigerant would migrate into the compressor on the first cold day and boom no compressor.

Extended warranties (as far as i know) from an outside warranty company may not be as good as the paper it is written on. in other words I have seen 2 warranty company go belly up within the past 25 years. But not within the past 10.

Hope this helps answer your question. Let em know If I need to tell you more. If I helped you please give me as high a rating as you can. Thank you and good luck.

TV UNDER WARRANTY & NO RESPONSE FROM DEALER JAN.6,2009


Hello,

All too often, extended and third party warranties are not honored as they should be. Some are even totally worthless. The general plan of a lot of third-party warranties is to hold the customer off until the warranty expires, and then deny it. If this was an extended warranty through the Rex store, then consider talking to a lawyer as soon as possible. One letter from an attorney may be all it takes. Or even the threat of going to an attorney is enough some times. It is a legally binding agreement that expires, so once it is up, they will almost certainly deny your claim.

Almost all extended warranties have a time frame for repair, and more specifically replacement! If they cannot repair the TV within a certain amount of time, then they should replace it.

I hope this helps you...
