Question about Panasonic CT-36G23 36" TV

1 Answer

Tv picture shrinks to one small line across the middle the screen.

The TV will be fine for a while but then the picture will shrink into one small line going across the TV screen If we tap the side of the TV the picture goes back to full screen. Obviously that cannot be the permanent solution.
Any thoughts.

    same problem,where are the pins located or how much would it cost to take it in and have it done ?

  • klnoel Sep 04, 2008

    Yes, We have the same problem. All I have to do is touch the Audio / Video Jacks on the front of the TV and the picture will return.

    Reduced picture quality (horizontal lines), reduced vertical
    picture size, the picture “bends” at top and bottom on horizontal edge,
    sometimes picture is reduced to 1 cm horizontal line.

    I have the same problem.

    I didn't expect hitting it on the side to work,

    now we just got to resolder the vertical output ic pins.

    Thanks.

JVC picture turns into a single line in middle of screen.


This is caused due to random falure of vertical scan circuits. It generally is caused by dried out capacitors or bad driver IC. Unfortunately it will get worse. If you fail to turn the TV off quickly you will burn a permenant horizontal line on the tube. Trip to the repair shop I am afraid.

Picture on RCA TV shrinks to a horizontal line


Hello,
Sounds to me you have a cold solder joint ( loose solder connection ) on the printer circuit board around or on the vertical chip or on one of the vertical capacitors. You may also have a bad vertical chip or a bad vertical capacitor, but I doubt it since it did come and go. I'de get a soldering iron and some solder and touch up the connections. I will remind you that you need to always excersise saftey by making sure, before removing the back, unplug the TV from the wall, and use care not to come in contact with the large red wire going to the back of the picture tube as the picture tube can be turned off and still store lots of voltage ( up to 35,000 volts). Always stay safe and when soldering, use care not to run solder across places that will make a short.
Good Luck and I hope this helps

After a few minutes picture shrinks to single line on screen and then powers off


Since the set works initially, there are likely poor solder connections at the vertical IC. If this is not addressed soon, the IC will fail and need to be replaced. The vertical IC is a small flat IC with about 11 pins or so that may be marked LA7837 or something similar. Try resoldering the pins first. If that fails to resolve the problem, replace teh IC. Feel free to post the marking here so I can verify you have the correct one.

The vertical output IC LA7847 is failing. It will likely fail permanately and you will have just the horizontal line. The set will require service. Just do not run the set very long in this state. That thin white line can likely burn into the crt phospher and will show all the time thus ruining the glass picture tube...

No picture Thin line across middle of screen


Hi,

Most problems indicated by your description involved the Vertical IC. With your post "tap...pop back up" signifies a loose connection or to be more specific a cold solder. I suspect that no part(s) need top be replaced but would however require re-application of heat with the use of a soldering iron.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Screen shrinking


You have bad solder connections on the vertical output IC or on one or more of the surrounding components. Good Luck

Sony Trinitron kv32fs16 picture shrinks


You have a bad solder connection in the vertical circuit. This will require you to resolder these bad connections before it blows out the vertical output IC or other parts in the circuit. Do this ASAP before you make a small repair into a large one. If you have no solid state printed circuit board experience, please play it safe and take the set into a pro to do this for you. Good Luck

Picture Shortens, Converges, eventually the set shuts off - $50 for Correct Solution


Open the TV amd turn it on in a position you can see the picture, possibly through a mirror. Now gently tap all of the metal heat sinks on the circuit board until you find the one that is sensitive it will have a small chip mounted vertically on it, with probably like 7-10 pins. The number on the chip will most likely be an "LA****" number. Now turn the circuit board (UNPLUG FIRST) over and resolder the pins. This is your problem 99% of the time. Be very careful there is High Voltage inside this TV.
