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.

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.

Resolder the vertical deflection section. Change pump up capacitor if it has one...100uf is a typical value. Is the vertical output some flavor of LA783x ?? May need to replace. A model # would help.

Sound but no picture


A white like across the screen means that the vertical circuit has stopped working. Look for a small fuse that looks like a resistor near the vertical output IC, replace that fuse if open and resolder the pins on the vertical output IC.

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.
