Question about Draper Cineperm 132" 1.85:1 Projector Screen

2 Answers

I have a 3 year old Panasonic CT-32HXC14J TV. It has been working fine until today. When I tried to turn it on the internal (6.3amp/125v fuse) blew. I went to get a new one and could only find a 4 pack 5 amp/125v instead. When placing it in the TV it also blew, so I did a stupid thing and bypassed the internal fuse and it turned on and worked. I then tried another 5 amp fuse and again the TV worked fine for an hour. After turning the set off for around 2 hours, I turned it on to only have the fuse blow. The TV is now unplugged. Whats the problem with this thing?? Please Help.

I had the same problem. Took the back off and found the 6.3 amp fuse blown. Replaced it with a 6.3 amp 250V fuse and cleaned out the dust especially off the high voltage transformer. It seems to be working ok now.

Hello sjday62

It sounds as if you have a component that has changed value enough in value to cause a high current draw, but has not completely shorted out. this phrase from you "so I did a stupid thing and bypassed the internal fuse and it turned on and worked" Not as stupid as you would think because it confirms what I said above, the 6.3 amp fuse tells me that the current draw normally is about 3 amperes since the normal rule of thumb is to double the value of the current to select the type of fuse. a five amp fuse should as well as a 4 amp fuse (it's best and recommended to use the exact fuse type). Now back to your issue. I would suspect that a transformer in the power chain has developed a shorted winding, or a capacitor begun to develop a short or excessive absorption.

I would suggest that you have the set looked at by a qualified TV technician.

I hope this helps,

Thank you,

Color settings for an older panasonic tv trying to adjust the color setting for this older panasonic tv, it seems the dark colors are really dark and there faces are really red. Model# CT-32g19j


This is not a projection set; but a picture tube set or CRT (Cathode Ray Tube) technology. If the set is working correctly you should be able to go into the menu and set the color, brilliance and contrast to get the right color and picture intensity. If the controls don't give you what is correct viewing it may be over age and need an adjustment of the internal chroma circuits - which may cost more than the set is worth since it is quite old. Hope this helsp.

Won't turn on


Possible there is a problem with your power button try to check it if it is still functional. Read light means standby power meaning your TV still working. If you cannot do it by yourself fixing it try to bring your TV at your nearest TV shop to check the power button.

Hoping for your kind approval to make my rate Solved for this problem.


Best regards,

Panasonic TV without picture


If the sound stays on try just going up and giving it a "whack" on the side, a pretty good one. If the picture springs back to life it is likely a poor solder joint.
Those sets and many others are prone to cold solder around the vertical IC due to the heating/cooling cycles and high temperatures inside a TV. If you hit it and you get a picture back it likely just needs to be re-soldered.

My 1080i has a triple picture, can you help?


Hi,
It definitely can be fixed the IC chips (called STKs) that line up the images from each picture tube are failing.Sometimes a fuse or resistor go out along with the chips. The parts would cost around $100 + whatever labor charge if you hire someone.

I have a Panasonic CT-26WX15N TV that was working fine when turned off and now it won't turn back on. I have it plugged into a surge protector and all the other electronic devices work fine. I also...


first things first- check the main power fuse; remove the 9 silver screws from the back of the unit, slide off the rear cover, and look at the main board right next to the power cord connection. There's a small, 6.3 amp fuse. Take a look at it; if it's blown... replace it.
