Question about Panasonic CT-32SL15 32" TV
When I switch the TV on I get a picture, then after a few minutes it goes blank (sound still OK), then after about 15-20 minutes, with the picture coming on and off, it seems to kick into life and works OK.
Can anyone help?? My girlfreind doesn't want me to go and buy a nice new LCD TV yet until I can prove to her it's not fixable!!!
I had this problem on my 42" Philips. Just got it yesterday and worked fine on the tv stand. As soon as I mounted the TV to the wall via wall mount system, I had the exact same issue you did. Figured it out today.
The wall mount was putting pressure against the center of the back of the tv (tv set had a slightly rounded back plate, and the mount was a flat plate). As soon as I put spacers (part of the wall mount hardware set) between the wall mount braket and the tv so there was no contact except at the mounting holes, the tv worked fine.
My theory is the pressure pushed the tv back plate against some board components which caused them to overheat (no air flow); or put pressure on internal connectors. I dont know.
Hope this helps, may not apply to your situation.
