TV's have a circuit that monitors the high voltage and shuts down the set if it senses something amiss.
On CRT types, figure on replacing the flyback transformer.
Most TV power supplies use a large capacitor on the power input circuit that instantlly charges when plugged in and thus draws a noticable spark. This is normal.
Hope ya fix it!

Hi, my Panasonic PT47WX49E rear projection tv suddenly shut itself off. It won't turn back on at all unless I unplug it and plug it back in. However, when I do that, the power light comes on but nothing...


Either give me a yahoo or note if light on front of set blinks--count the blinks if it does.

most common is 3 blinks, pause 3 or 5 blinks etc.

Let me know if I can assist you.

Okay there is something wroung with the frount panel there may be debris in where the button is depressed or seomthing is depressing the button or it may be just going out on you.

1. take off the frount cover and examine the channel up and down make sure its clean and there are no debris.
2. if that does not work replace the controller board aroun $65 bucks.

I do not know your zip code but you can give these folks a shot www.teexp.com you can call and ask how much it would cost to replace this controller even though they might not work in your area they still can give you a price.

Thanks

dear friend you have a power supply problem, get one of those cheap meters and open the set, look for a blown fuse, if they are ok wich i doubt, you have to call the repairman.

TV turns off


It sounds like you might either have a bad power cord or you might have an over heating issue. Some times the TV will automatically shut off if it senses a fan issue or it starts to overheat. What technology is your set? DLP, LCOS, DILA...? If its under warranty I'd suggest to get someone out asap to take a look at it.

HELP! Fire Hazzard!


It sounds like your focus/screen block, the flyback transformer, or maybe a CRT anode lead is leaking high voltage. This could be a serious problem, or could be a simple one. You should not attempt this repair unless you know all of the high voltage safety issues involved with this TV set. Good Luck
